Running the new 0.57 WU now and ~95% lead to computation errors. I'm running on Win 7 64 with an ati 5830 and catalyst 11.3.

So far I've observed that the only units to work are those with _free in the file name all of the _fix ones go to computation error after 4-5 s.


i got the opposite scenario ... all tasks with _free in the filename lead to computation error and all with _fix are working fine

win 7, boinc 60.10.60 x64, catalyst 11.3., gainward hd 4870 gs 1024MB

What with Seti's recent troubles and other Boinc projects as well, it looks like 2011 is going to be an interesting test of Boinc loyalties :-))


I guess, the efficiency and the importance of the project should be the point of interest ... and not the loyalty

Also I have the same problem with the gpu computation speed:

old app(ati 0.23 - ati13 ?!):
~150s
~210s
~255s

new app(ati14):
~195s
~260s
~330s

Gainward HD 4870 GS 1024MB
Catalyst 11.3
Boinc 60.10.60

good morning from germany

ok after i got several computation errors, I reattached the
project and it worked. BUT the ATI app used round about 15%
of my quadcore while 4 CPU WUs also was on computing. I guess
this shouldnt be so ...

also i still have the feeling the CPUs WUs are able to
burn my CPU. I don't know what it is. If other programs
like prime95 or other boinc projects use it, which also use
100% of my CPU, my cpu temp always is about 50°.
With milkyway CPU WUs its flipping from 55°-70° (max cpu temp:61°)

sry but i cant believe i m the only one with this problem,
if all other apps and programs are running fine on my system.

am I the only one who have a problem with the cpu temperature after getting the new WUs ?

I reinstalled the project and will test it again when the next WUs are available ...

got 24 tasks ...


but something is bothering me more and more

my system was primestable at <55° celsius
and worked all the days with boinc at full
utilization with 50°

after i got ur WUs now its drastically changing
from 55 to 72° ... and the random beeps of my speaker
are rly annoying

what have u done ? ^^

I am getting download errors because the application to run these work units, "milkyway_0.57_windows_intelx86__ati14.exe", is not found on the server.


It looks like when the server got brought back up this morning the download directory was restored to an earlier version which didn't have Matt's application added to it yet. So as soon as he wakes back up and updates the applications I'll start sending out work again (which should fix the problem).


you should take a look there -> http://milkyway.cs.rpi.edu/milkyway/download/tests/


installed it for now ( hope its not a old preversion ^^ ) ... lets try again =)

I would kill the guy who is responsible for this :P
about 1 million results was simply burned in the oven?!
such a waste =(
That would mostly be my fault


plz take a look at the smiley ... that means it was more a joke ... no so seriously

I wouldnt kill u =) I WOULD ******** *** ** * * ** * *** U :D just kidding

I guess the most of the users havent noticed it yet and also will never notice it.

More important projects?
It doesn't get any better than this.
Fundamental nature of the universe trumps medical discoveries or math problems in my book.
But it's all more knowledge to add to the human understanding and as such is ALL important.


yes, but I think we have to solve some "smaller" problems in biology, chemistry or physic first, before we look at more complex problems like the stars and our universe =)
Or think about what zydor has said, the computation for the milkyway would be no problem if we had quantum computers. so why shouldnt we solve this problem first ? :o

Its amazing what a tiny Baileys can do with your thoughts. LoL
Dont worry. Just Crunch. ;-)

what ? no nothing was done with my thoughts. I had alrdy written a big flamepost and then i deleted it, cause i came to my senses. also they are just humans. but it's hard to see that 1 million results got lost like a *puff* and was blown away.
Sure i ll go on and crunch =)



why not get both ati and nvidia cards?


i guess there are more important projects in other science fields, but they don't support ATI ;) so I ll think about what happened again, when I get a nvidia card ...

;-) Philosophical is one way to look at it. The other way
is rational. The more crunchers that leaves Milkyway, the
more wu`s there will be for the rest of us! ;-D

Just get it up running again!
Good Luck! ;-)


haha i like this way of thinking ^^

but it would be a lie if i would say something like i hadnt thought about leaving this project after the last night...

I ll stay as long as i have no nvidia card ... and then we ll see =)
