I've prepared a traslation in italian of science page.
I wrote to astro@.... (from home page) but no answer.

Read the News section, the problems aren't that the data isn't valuable, the problem seems to stem from lack of money to keep the databases running like they want them to be.


Only a part of data isn't valuable (gpus are ok) and admins are working on.
They are not absent, but seems that are not interested in updating scientific section

I know scientists have a lot of things to do, but
This page is up to date as of January 10, 2015--Siddhartha S.


A little update is welcome.
What we are crunching for?

No more publications/talks??

Same here with my rx560

Number of parameters doesn't make sense

Hi, I'm new, and was looking for some sort of current status. That BoincItaly link doesn't work. Any new links, papers, a paragraph summary? This is cool stuff.


We have some problems on Boinc Italy site, but the link is ok (when we resolve the problems)
This is not updated

The plan for the beginning is to start conservatively with 10 work units per bundle. Depending on how the CPU only crunchers handle this (about 5-10 hours of work per bundle) we can then decide to increase it. The current code is written to allow for an arbitrary number of work units to be bundled together so I can change it rather easily.


How longer will be the gpu wus? 2x? 5x??

Post:
I actually have a pretty good idea as to why the server isn't sending work units to new GPUs. Turns out my server updating was never updating boinc specific daemons like the scheduler, feeder and a few others.


I think you have used this...or not?

Post:
So, i stopped ALL cpu wus (Rosetta) and ALL gpu wus (Seti)
Same message:
Not requesting tasks: don't need (CPU: ; AMD/ATI GPU: )


I don't copy the exe 1.39 in the folder. Is this the error??
Activate cpu works in my profile?


Solved in the "old" way:
xml file+1.39 opencl exe+accept cpu work
Now i'm crunching: local milkyway 1.39 (opencl_ati_101)


Next 20
