you posted on the front page:

October 2, 2007 The Forums are Working... Sort of
It looks like the message boards are at least functional. There are still some errors to be fixed, but at least they are useable. This means I can start getting some feedback from you guys! Also, I found the bug in the code, so if you have gotten work and it ran really slowly and caused your computer to do some strange things I should be able to fix those very soon.

But my PC's are not getting anything. I have 1 Vista and 2 XP boxes registered, but they do not show up in my profile. My team also does not register on my workstations.
I hope the feedback helps.

As of this writing it looks like only 32 test workunits have been created so don't be surprised if in the near future you find yourself getting that out of work message.

So far of the ones I have received they have either ended with the Maximum disk usage exceeded or the Maximum CPU time exceeded errors.

Message 35 - Posted: 3 Oct 2007, 4:19:16 UTC - in response to Message 18.  

If you want to test if there is any work, go to the projects tab, highlight MilkyWay@home, then hit the update button... if there are work units and your platform is supported you'll get something, but I have yet to get some 100% bug free programs up, but hopefully this week I'll have something operational.

Just FYI that will not work with the newer BOINC clients if the participants work cache is already full with work from other projects. Older clients had a workaround by suspending the other projects and then updating.

That problem is pretty common apparently... I'm working on it right now. That's before you even attempt get work from the server. It looks like most people can't even connect to the scheduler. I'm not sure what the problem is, but the attempts aren't even being recorded in my logs. There may be a missing soft link somewhere.



You must of fixed something, I got a wu, yeah, running 13 minutes, but at 100% for 10 minutes. should i wait?

I haven't gotten too deep into debugging this, but hopefully I can have it fixed for you soon!

You certainly are a very busy guy tonight, and a very productive one! :D

There's a bug in the windows app; it thinks there is a memory leak, and it's going to continue printing to stderr telling you all the modules it's dumping until it kills itself, so you don't really need to keep running. It may still upload a result because if you look on your hard disk the result is in fact there, and it's correct. I haven't gotten too deep into debugging this, but hopefully I can have it fixed for you soon!



went 15 minutes and then error out. Good Luck on the Fixed!

I got a question about work what we will get . How long do you expect it will take to crunch a workunit ? And how long we will have to crunch a unit. Deadline time ?
