Pity the validator can not be reprogramed to accept the size 7 workunits as a valid size
or is that just my dim way of solving the problem .

I have been having issues with the nbody tasks failing. They should process in a couple of minutes (using 16 processors out of 24 on a pair of xeon 56xx's) But instead they get part way and then lock up for the rest of the day, which means that no other tasks will run on those 16 processors. It isn't an issue of them just trying to finish either, on what should be a couple of minute task it would be stuck for 12 hours at 0% cpu.

If anyone has any suggestions on this.

Hallo,

MilkyWay@home sounds very interesting "create a highly accurate three dimensional model of the Milkyway galaxy using data gathered by the Sloan Digital Sky Survey".

sounds like you are building a "google maps" software of the milky ways? (hope it is Open Source)

will it look like this? https://youtu.be/r97GWqMD7_c

https://skfb.ly/6QV7A

holy it is a probably not accurate 3D model that a 3D hobbyist did, but it looks just great & it run's in the user's browser and supports VR

neat :)

checkout this software http://universesandbox.com/scottmanley discover the universe like a video game :)

(it is more about inspiring people, if VR is brings any practical advancements is still in question https://sg.news.yahoo.com/vr-milky-way-model-open-100210956.html

have a good time despite everything

Hi fellow number crunchers. I have backed off a bit and not doing any work at this time because of no feedback as to all this effort being useful, for all I know I could be Crypto Mining. Can somebody point me to where all our effort is to be found or should I just go back to my telescope?

It's your pc's and your choice where you crunch but a simple look would have found this:

https://milkyway.cs.rpi.edu/milkyway/forum_thread.php?id=3145

yes it's from 2019 but this is about REAL Science not fake Science where results are gathered today and dropped onto some fake website the next
