IMHO

does the optimized app improve the science? - or cause issues with credits and numerous forum posting - you optimized the app because .. you don't release it to all because?

why not do what Einstein@home does - open, up front, for all, detailed help and instructions - all to help their science ..

Windows S5R4 SSE2 power App 6.05 available
http://einstein.phys.uwm.edu/forum_forum.php?id=3

make it available to all that can use it - give the MW Admin staff some time to develop their own app offering with the chosen ones volunteering input/improvements ...

b happy

just a couple of my observations, for what there are worth

1. optimized app - could a milkyway@home beta site not be setup to develop an optimized app - other BOINC projects have 2 projects - extra time and resource required but admin/scientist time is being used to reply to threads on the forums!. A test or beta development site removes the points/credit/cheating/jealously issues - limit the test/beta site to the chosen few who can help improve the code and other volunteers who will know and accept the 'rules' for the beta/test project ... A single project will different flavors of app/s will only cause issue/s as we can see - keep them apart

2. remind yourself you are a volunteer to this project - you don't like what's happening and/or the direction it is taking the go else where, plenty other BOINC projects

I think there is an issue with these WUs - my 1.8GH G5 Mac that crunched the old WUs in 12 minutes is now going to take 1500 minutes perWU.

so 20 have been downloaded - 5 days to complete but it will take 20 days+

this Mac has 100% CPU allocated so its flat out 24/7

what to do?

I think it has more to do with the project going down for a while this weekend. Ever since it came up I haven't seen any WUs.


work should be ready shortly. the computer crashed again over the weekend (i have our labstaff looking into why it's been randomly locking up on us). i'm running some stuff to clean the database and after that there should be work again (think 15-20 minutes).


Yep thanks - one of my PCs just picked some up at 17:35 Scottish time!

- no joy for my Mac yet but good to see some coming online ...

17:50 update - Mac now getting some WUs .. thanks for sorting this out
