Do you mean the front page where I've left the background blue?


Yea, last I checked it was still bright blue. Now it's maroon. Taken care of then.

No, I havn't changed the color yet, but I've been working on the text links as well as providing 'home' links on the other pages. I'll have a go at toning down that blue background now.

you have to find a black button on black background in order to fill in form information (in black).


So....what's your problem.

:P


zslip does read better, the main part is still a tad hard to read though.

Do you mean the front page where I've left the background blue?

Fixed now as noted above.

I'm with Phil on the cosmology web pages. I don't find it all comfortable to work with those black pages.


It'd br a good project if (a) I could read the web pages, and (b) they found someone who knows how to make BOINC server work.

Incidentally, I defy ANYONE to be able to use parts of cosmology@home's site correctly, you have to find a black button on black background in order to fill in form information (in black).

On my screen the background is lighter than the text boxes and the form text is white.

It might help some folk if it wasn't blue text on a blue background. Having text colour saet differently to the background colour does make it more readable (and I am sure there are people who find it hard to read but don't like to say anything...).


Thank you for that feedback Debs ;) I've updated the colors and hopefully it's more readable now.


That looks much better now, thanks for taking note of my comment. It's made a useful site much more usable :)


I'm glad you commented and not me, 'cos I'd just feel an idiot.
I am an idiot anyway 'cos I have a wornout monitor and on a site like zslip have to switch backgrounds off.

I just took a look - the black text box is blacker than the surrounding black form (OK, maybe slightly gray) so I can see where everything is. It just gets taking used to I suppose. But then I can guess that on some screens the differences in the black shading would be hard to work with.

I'd forgotten that one. I use another browser that I've removed the background colours from.

I wouldn't worry about it. For an alpha project you sure do have a lot of crunchers! If people don't like what has been happening they don't have to do work for the project. Simple really. All up MW has been working fairly well. That is the beauty of BOINC. If one project has problems, just crunch a different for a little while.

ps. Thanks Labbie for the sig ;)

I'm glad you mentioned it. I've been tweaking one or two other things to perhaps improve it more. Thanks again for your feedback.



Thanks Ice, are the ones posted there based on the 0.18 release?

Thanks Ice, are the ones posted there based on the 0.18 release?

The Windows applications are based on the 0.07 release with the core computational parts transplanted from my modified version of the old 1.22 app (slightly tuned to allow better autovectorization by the compiler) and then some small modifications to get the checkpointing correct and the addition of the required signature string in the output file.

Most likely all I will do is to change the version number to 0.18 because the input and output file formats have not changed and the actual computation is probably also the same. But you don't have to worry about it, there were no new features added since 0.07 (besides the version string in the output).

Yep. It is amazing how much crap people will put up with so long as the credit is good.

So, keep the opt apps coming. Keep the credit high enough and people WILL put up with the outages, shenanigans like running test apps in the production environment, speed limits, etc.

I keep mentioning that and Travis shoots it down. Especially after the heck he gave everybody and then made the last opti apps useless, then put out ~10 apps in a week which half never worked. It's always one sided, with some excuse.
