Today, Oct the 29th, the boinc manager reported that they have no projects available for SETI@home, Milkyway@home.Malariacontrol,Enigma and Collatz Conjecture. Also I noticed that the current boinc manager version is 6.6.38. A few days ago it was 6.6.41.



October 28, 2009
The Windows builds of 6.6.41 has been pulled from the Download page due to a application version mismatch with some Microsoft components. Please use the 6.6.38 version until 6.10.00 is released.


i think that other problem needs a thread of it's own.

32) Message boards : Questions and problems : A Question that's been bothering me (Message 27545)

Post:
That depends on, oh, so many things. For example how expensive electricity is in your geographical area. Or what projects you contribute to. Or how useful you think those projects are.

Or even your current mood.

For example, sometimes I'm in such a depressive mood that makes me think even WCG is pointless, because I wonder if humanity is *worth* saving from diseases or we're better off extinct.


um, i feel you nic, can we make the depressors club in the boinc community?

well it's a balancing act..

for the record i'm one of those use 100/100 24/7; minus the down time for a cleaning and updates...

but one answer of many to follow is yes...

i have 2 computers cpu's running WCG, while the other laptop runs for drugdiscovery and the quad(big baby) runs for all projects that i see that are worth my computers time... and yes, every penny(PC) counts.

now, the question of energy... this is a hard definition for me to figure out..

i say that if your newest computer, a q6600 can out run p4 processor hands down, does the energy output out weigh the energy bill? thats a question that everyone answers in their own way. and this also depends on location and where your energy comes from.. a coal plant, wind, hydro***, solar, and nuclear*!

my area is right next to a river, and a dam, so my power is nothing but hydro which makes me happy... no dirty air from coal.

depends on the cpu....

we don't run teams here as it's not a project(it's the system), just the common grounds.

Read his problem again and you'll see he didn't ask that. Questions about BOINC Wide teams are legitimate around here.

And it would be best if you didn't share your account key or any personal id with the rest of the community.

He didn't. That's his CPID, or Cross Project IDentification. Neither you, nor anyone else, will be able to log in on any of his accounts with that one, or glean an actual account key from that number.

@PurpleTurtle, a side question.
Have you already made a team at those two projects?
I ask as I haven't seen many projects update the information from BWT after the initial taking in of the teams in the BWT database. I mean, I changed something on my team not too long ago in BWT and I haven't seen it propagate to any of the projects that do use BWT. And then there's those projects that I made the team at by hand, those have never changed the information.



ok, my bad if i interpreted the question the wrong way, on a side note, i was giving pre-cautionary info about personal id codes.

perhaps i need a new monitor... my eyes are starting to hurt for some reason when i'm looking at an nearly white screen.
