Hi,
You think this is bad, try Orbit@home.

Orbit doesn't have a deadline of five days ...

I am having some difficulty understanding why you are complaining about swimming with the sharks when all you brought to the party was a rubber ducky.

Complaining about an improper project setup has nothing to do with "complaining about swimming with the sharks".

Hi,
FWIW, my PII (450), K6-2's (500's), and PIII (550) can all make the deadline, even on the long 372x's.

But only if you crunch 24/7. My PIII Laptop would need 10 days before it could return a long wu regarding its current uptimes.

Carsten

Hi,
I remember this is already adressed elsewhere in one of the other threads, so the admins should be aware of that probably.

Yes, the problem is well known: The deadlines and the maximum allowed CPU time don't reflect the new wu length.

We were told that Travis is the only one who knows how to adjust these values but he's out of town. The best solution at the moment is: Go back to the status quo before the change until they figured out how to set up the values properly.

Carsten

Hi,

but what I've been thinking is upping the deadline to about a week

My old P3 Laptop will be forced into retirement, because it won't be able to finish the workunits in time (4 hrs uptime per day, sometimes less, 50% cpu usage).

Carsten

Hi,

Now to the immediate problem of short deadlines and d/l too much work....remember everyone when you think of dumping some....they have to be resent by the server ....then crunched......which gives you even more time to report before your resend does .....and yours gets credit if reported 1st.......so those teetering on the edge of deadlines should get you credit anyways :) Don't be too quick to abort!

Some people are playing a similar game every Wednesday and Saturday. It's called Lotto ;-)

Hi Martix,

Milkyway@home|Message from server: No work sent
Milkyway@home|Message from server: (won't finish in time) Computer on 95.2% (the percentage change depending on the days) of time, BOINC on 100.0% of that, this project gets 11.1% of that

What's your "Computer is connected to the Internet about every x days" setting?
What's your "Average turnaround time" for Milkyway?

Regards,
Carsten
