Cancelling the test for now because there are very few WU’s flowing from MW at the moment.

Going to crunch other, sadly neglected, projects for a bit get back to MW in a week or so. Maybe there will be a better flow of work then.

Sorry.

Whatever else you may be, you are at least mildly amusing.

My original question stands: I know where to find the best apps for SETI, what are the best apps for MW?

My apologies to you, Misfit, if my statement somehow bothered you. Sometimes rather nasty experiences can cloud even the most level headed person’s perceptions of things, and I have never been particularly level headed!

I employ a very simple equation: my respect for people is directly proportional to how they treat me.

Do not assume that you know the entire story if you have only heard one side of it.

Thanks for understanding.

I hope to be running a MW test soon. (As I understand it, you had some recent problems anyway, so it is probably just as well that this happened when it did.)

Anyway, the longer range plan, after this test is done, is to run SETI optimized vs. MW optimized, head to head. on my Quad for a month. Each with a 50% share and no other projects involved. Which, I figure, ought to tell the tale so far as my original question about crunchers' whose main interest is credit vs. science is concerned. :o)

RE: my next test with optimized apps: My plan is to use the MW apps on Anton's little site (assuming he doesn't delete them out of spite) vs the AKV8 SSSE3x for SETI. If there are better apps for my Q6600 machine, please let me know. This follow-up test is intended to be best-muscle against best-muscle on a more-or-less ordinary machine. But i am not a computer person so any help in making things nasty but with an equally nasty playing field appreciated.

(Note: when the time comes, I will be consulting Lunatics for the best possible kick-ass SETI apps, so, I want the best possible MW apps to run them against.)

No, no, no, here is the real secret to getting work.

Go to the nearest railway station. Stand under the station’s main clock. Face north (magnetic north, not celestial north), now turn precisely 22.1291547 degrees east. Take a deep breath, hold for five seconds and, while imaging George Clooney naked, yell “Banshee!”

Guaranteed to work with any BOINC project (except Orbit. Who knows what’s up with those guys.)

Also, there is a possibility that you will be asked by security to leave the premises‘, but hey, you’ll get work units!

Nicely done page on Q-Baby, though one thing that's not clear is what OS you're running, and I'm not "ept" enough to know how to find out offhand.


Looks to be XP. Goto 'view computers' under his name.


LOL.

It is actually dual boot (Ubuntu and Windows), but for the purposes of this test, XP, SP3.

Okay, here we go. Now crunching SAH MB with Berkeley supplied apps.

Starting credit is:

324 930 + 1302 pending = 326 232

@ Odd-Rod

I am setting my cache to 1 day and will go NNT about 18 hours before the end of each test and keep a close eye on things the rest of the way.

Some wu’s will likely end up being trashed (apologies to my wing-peeps) but it shouldn’t be too bad.

{Special note for MW users: it is not that I want to impinge on CampaignForLiberty’s little test, and he beat me to it by a few hours, but, I did have a similar idea. Since I am actually using the same computer, and processing four different projects instead of two, it will take about a month for accurate results. Think of my lowly, amateur efforts as a control, eh? Let‘s see what happens.}

Here is the plan: I am going to run Q-Baby 24/7, all four cores, for a week on each of four different projects: SETI, Einstein, PrimeGrid and MilkyWay. For the purposes of the experiment, I am only going to be using stock, project supplied applications.

I will be using this basic formula to estimate the weeks worth of credit earned:

Credit Gain = (Ending Credit + New Pending1,2) - (Start Credit + Start Pending2)

1 Pending credit acquired during the week.
2 For projects with a large discrepancy between pending and awarded credit, I will manually guesstimate the difference.

Also, if a project runs out of work during the week, I will extrapolate credit to fill the idle hours.

I've only one computer and it is unhidden so feel free to check my results for yourself.

Before anyone points out the boincstats link that shows all of this already or, even worse, starts crying that my experiment is neither fair nor impartial: I admit all of the above.

I just want to make my own measurements. And, being an admitted attention-seeking-person, I figured I would invite you all along for the ride.

Additionally, in the interests of fairness, I am starting similar threads in the other three concerned projects.

Finally, I freely admit that I have my own preconceived ideas about how all of this will turn out. (My guess, lowest to highest, SETI, Einstein, PrimeGrid, and by a comfortable margin in the credit lead, MilkyWay,) but I think that most of you who know me from other projects know that I will run my experiment honestly and present the results as received. (And will eat crow, if necessary.)

I am only going to be posting to this thread to provide weekly updates so, feel free to discuss amongst yourselves the many error of my ways.


I will begin crunching SETI at 19:00, PST, February 23, 2009.
SETI will end and Einstein begin at 19:00, March 2, 2009.
Einstein will end and PrimeGrid begin at 19:00 PST, March 9, 2009.
PrimeGrid will end and MilkyWay will begin at 19:00 PST, March 16, 2009.
MilkyWay will end at 19:00 PST, March, 23.
Results will be posted by 21:00 PST, March 23.

As a (relatively) objective observer my take on this is that that there are certain things in life worth fighting over. Other things are not.

This definitely fits in the latter category.

I’m just saying.

On the other hand, it is always fun to blame Misfit. :P
