FormulaBOINC 2020

Hi Seems like sebastien has had a change of heart in that he will be running FB next year. I got the impression that he had had enough and/or needed help in running it. But according to a post he recently made he'll be asking for suggestions for projects for next year. http://formula-boinc.org/forum...

Re: NAS box for storing CD and DVDs

Hi I was looking at this post and did a quick google search and saw "Handbrake". I've had it on the desktop for ages and forgot what it was! I think I ripped some things and found a few MP4 files that I think I ripped a couple of years ago. Just used VLC Player to see the quality and they seem fine....

BOINCStats Credit drop

Hi Just noticed I've lost 1,160,726 credits. There was something about Goofygrid messing with the stats so I assume it's something to do with that but nothing is showing on the BOINCStats page - no credits from them and just the negative credit. Mind you it's not as bad as Marks stats! -1,270,600,53...

Re: Primegrid 50th Anniversary of the Moon Landing Challenge

Hi

Now I'm shifting!

Team up to 40th and I've got some credits up. Turned off the AMD version of hyper-threading to see if it makes much difference, so now running 7 cores instead of 13 threads - odd numbers but that's the way it is!

Re: Primegrid 50th Anniversary of the Moon Landing Challenge

Hi

What a bungle! For some weird reason I was doing "The Riesel Problem LLR (TRP)" I'm sure I selected "Proth Prime Search LLR (PPS)" and I probably did but forgot to save! So forgot anything I said about 4 CPU and stuff!

Re: UBT stats finally disappearing?

Hi

Seems to be dying a slow death. If I click on any user I only get my stats and the hourly, daily and monthly graphs are duplicated. Individual projects still working. http://www.ubtstats.co.uk/ubt/SC3.php?n ... 0=2&dead=1

Couple more points lost at Climate - looks like Australia will also overtake fairly soon as well. Also lost a point at Collatz. :cry:

Re: BOINC Pentathlon 2019

Hi

Just done a few OpenZIKA just to see what the credits are like

On this PC they take around 2.5 hours for an average of around 65 credits each. Not much but WCG is a poor payer anyway.

Hi BOINCWide team creation was suspended a couple of years ago. I just tried and there are no options to create a team. I believe when a project is being created they have to include the option of using an up to date database to use teams that are all ready open. For some reason (it's happened more ...

Re: Marathons

Hi Looks like we might lose a couple more points at Climate Prediction after today's update. We were running similar output but they've added an extra 100,000 this last week and are only 9,000 behind now. I've got 11 running at the moment. Luckily, as the due date is 2020, they easily give way to ot...
