Re: Want a project added?

I'd like to see Milkyway@home added back into the possible projects.
Their task issue problem was solved over two weeks ago.

Re: Milkway should be excluded from the upcoming Sprint

OK, I get your reasoning. I've not had any trouble getting work nor for contacting the project. That seems to have improved greatly from what it has been in the past. The type of work they have had in the past made it not an issue when the tasks ran for 10-25 hours at a time. Current Quantum Chemist...

Re: Milkway should be excluded from the upcoming Sprint

Is there a reason why GPUGrid is not included?

They have had plenty of work for over two months now.

Currently working on 4.5 day supply of work available and they keep adding to the RTS buffer.

That would be plenty to last through the Sprint.

Milkway should be excluded from the upcoming Sprint

FYI, there has been no credit stats from MW since around the first of last month. The have been no validations of pending credits since the work generator has been turned off. Therefore no wingman validation _1 tasks have been created for over a month. This lack of credit exports and lack of validat...

Develop better algorithm for choosing Sprint projects

The fiasco of this latest Sprint contest with Asteroids points out that projects that do not have enough WU's to last through the contest length shouldn't be put into the selection pool. All it takes is to look at the peridicity of work availability using the Grafana graphing tool to see that the As...

Re: Add SPT test project to BOINC Games?

I don't know if it is smart to add a Test project. I would think it better to wait until they aren't in Testing mode and have an established history of work and volunteers for a while.

Re: Sprints and Universe@home

I was checking the list of available projects for the upcoming Sprint and stil see Universe@home excluded.

There hasn't been anything wrong with their stats availability or work for months.

Please include Universe again as a possible choice. :o

Re: Projects added

I'd like to see Asteroids@home added to the possible Sprint choices now that they are back online and stable with good workflow and new server kit.

Re: Sprints and Universe@home

I understand your reticence about the Universe stats problem for the Marathon standings which depend on the stats export. But I was made to understand that the Sprints did not use a projects stats export and instead used Web RPC protocols to pull the stats. So if that is the true case, why wasn't Un...
