Hey All,

I just released a new version of nbody, version 1.54. There are no major changes, just some minor bug fixes. There was a sampling bug in the velocity assignment which caused it to throw away more possible vels than it should. So the initialization is much faster than before. However, the results should be the same. But faster is always better!

Let me know if there is any issues with the new version/binaries.

Thank you!
Sidd

I don't know if it is related but I am not getting any work now - don't know when it started but I left with running climateprediction until I get more work.

I do not know if this has anything to do with nBody, but Cortana and Start menu have failed twice recently in Windows 10 while running BOINC. System logged me off and back in again when I pressed Microsoft's "fixit" button. BOINC did not like that at all. Milkyway tasks restarted from last checkpoint. Looks to me like Cortana is misbehaving when BOINC is running. I have no Cortana mischief in other Windows 10 systems. Thought you might like to know.

BTW Sidd, I started to work on a cool GO button for you. See Heidi for details.

Sounds familiar. I fat fingered my mouse when it happened to hover over "Send no more work" button when I first started. Check if you have something wrong in your global preferences.

If you are on the BOINC Basic window, click on ADVANCED. Next, click on the PROJECTS button at the top. It will show a list of projects you chose to run. Click on the Milkyway project to highlight it. A pane will show on your left. Go to the Milkyway home page (the bottom button). Once you are there, scroll down until you see PROFILES and launch that. Look on the bottom of the next screen and select "My Account." (NOTE: I did not design this.)

You will see two preference buttons. You want to open "Preferences for this project." The next screen shows a list of task types you gave permissions to download. They have check boxes on the left of each task type. If none of them are checked, that is your problem. Look for a tiny "edit" button and select it. Now you can check the boxes for the task types you want to run. Click on SAVE and close the page. That should get you back to the PROJECT window. Click on UPDATE (the top button). When it finishes doing its thing, click on the TASKS pane. Hopefully, you will see Milkyway tasks flowing into your list.

Hope this helps you, and thank you for crunching for milkyway.
A fellow cruncher,
