DENIS@home is BACK !

Post by UBT - Timbo »

Hi all

After a long time, the DENIS@home project has restarted... :-D

More info here:

https://denis.usj.es/denisathome/forum_ ... d=197#1553

Note: The first 999 tasks have already been downloaded, but once these are "confirmed" then another 40,000 simulations will be made available.

So, keep an eye on the staus page here:

https://denis.usj.es/denisathome/server_status.php

(or just "Allow new tasks" within BOINC Manager ;-) ).

If you haven't added it in BOINC Manager, then here's the project URL:

Code: Select all

https://denis.usj.es/denisathome/
Note: You do need to agree to their new terms, before you can access your old account or tos et up a new one. My old account was still accessible, so if you had an old account, I hope you remembered your password !!

PLUS you also need to go to your Preferences and tick the box that says:

"Do you consent to exporting your data to BOINC statistics aggregation Web sites?"

regards

Hi Carl

Nice !!

I missed out on the 1st phase - and I got 162 from the 2nd phase - with 2 hosts now crunching Denis tasks. :-)

If this phase proves to be successful, then the admins reckon it won't be in Beta any more and they can start releasing more tasks:

https://denis.usj.es/en_US/news/second- ... plicacion/

The credits are not huge - around 40-43 credits each based on a run time (on my hosts) of between 5,600-7,000 seconds each.

It all helps, in the big scheme of things :-)

And I am SO CLOSE to the 300K credits "Golden heart" badge ;-) but I'm a long way away from the "Everest" badge (for 885K credits).

Hi Carl,

Hope you are well.

Yup - I'm on it...got me a few tasks now...and slowly crunching through them...they are quite short on my hosts - taking 7,000-8,000 seconds each and between 40 and 50 credits per task.

regards
Tim
