ooppps - spoke to soon re. fortran error asso w/climateprediction.net. suspending cp.net seems to alleviate yhe issue. other than that, vista + 6.2.14 is performing flawlessly.

I have a couple of 280 hr jobs with plenty of time but wondered if I could dedicate one or two processors from the quad to take up the extra work? If there is an answer and its really technical - be gentle. :<)

I wish I could say the same. I upgraded on July 30th from 5.10.45. It was running fine until this morning. I woke up to "Computation Error" for all my WUs again. There's no hardware error at play, as I was able to run 5.10.45 with no errors for 10-11 days on all he same projects and some of the same WUs. But just 3-4 days on this and I hit this brick wall again.

Oh well, time to pass the pertinent info on to Rom and go from there.


I'm keeping my fingers crossed because when running 5.10.45 like you "for a couple of weeks trouble free" I awoke to some fortran error associated with climateprediction.net. Was it Vista or the @home project? Right from Win 95, the os has always had goblins. So many times, when problems arise, you don't know where to go - and if you do you don't what to do, :<) Are you running a similar system to mine?

Day 1 - download, install, run - all w/o a hitch.
Day 2 - ran flawlessly.
Day 3 - still running great.

Looking further, it appears to be a dead project.
See here



Thanks Les. I do "read before I write" but didn't see that page. The project has a new page See almost ready to go and I interpreted that and other text that it was running.

So, no. It DIDN'T get any work.

Why it didn't, after requesting some work, is another matter.
Perhaps the message lines that followed these 2 give a clue.


The only thing that changed in the following lines were the # of seconds.

Hey Mike O! Just visited your site and loved the balls and string. Now if you could just do that with DNA or Hydrogen or SETI or... It would spice up the website.

“The science done dictates WU length. Some things can't be broken into nice 1 hour chunks. CPDN is the best example, but there are others out there. QMC can have some massive work as well as Orbit (so I'm told).

It would be nice if projects would make this clear, but then again, some people today seem to have problems reading what is right in front of their noses.”


Why not form “Massive WU Teams”? Have the org say we need x computers for y time and have a pool of people who will donate 24/7 for the duration. Shirly there are enough volunteers to manage short term goals.

Pro-active, interactive, some kind of “active” is necessary to keep people interested. Look at how many skins are available for the BOINC manager. Clubs, groups, orgs, etc. have the same age old problem: the same people volunteer over and over and over and… to fill the positions necessary for an org to function.

A lot of people are cut off at the ankles with the “tecky” complexity that exists with BOINC, Grid Republic, BAM, etc. Quite a few letters say so or complain about WU not being available or other issues.

One thing is certain, it will never get done if it’s just talk. Come up with a game plan. Implement it. Fix it along the way. Get it done.

Just a thought.

Actually the question was pretty straight forward and had absolutly nothing to do with having friends or not. The question was about crunching power with regards to one way vs another. If there was some really informative info posted answering the question, then the question would not have been asked. And then we wouldn't have to read some smart butt post like yours.

Greetings - I did SETI a few years ago and have recently come back to @home computing. I'm an average computer user but have to say that I agree there is enough techno-jargon to muddle the gray cells. First I'm looking at World Community Grid , then switch to BOINC, then see Grid Republic, then come accross Folding@home (Stanford). Then there is the issue of teams - should I or shouldn't I? What's the point? The bottom line for me is how do I and my computer deliver the most crunches to the orgs. What are the optimum settings for my system to deliver the most bang for the buck? Reading some of the boards tells me that a lot of people are asking questions about a lot of techno-crap that the software should take care of. I don't need to speak/understand computer science, biology, chemistry, astro physics, and blah, blah, blah. I just want to donate what I can and use the KISS method. It seems to me if you want to attract and retain newbees, the simpler the better. And then if those people want to get more technical - hey there is enough out there to wet anyones thirst.
