Looks promising. My invalid count has gone way down and my RAC is climbing again. Thank you for your work on this.

My RAC has decreased from around 33,500 to under 25,000. I'm running about 20% invalid. I hope something can be done and that this is not going to be the "cost of doing business". Nevertheless, I enjoy running the project but I would like to see all of my work count.

Same problem here. 50 invalids over the past three or four days.

Plenty of work and verifying just fine so far.

I checked my tasks list and I have a lot of "cancelled by server" notations. Is this part of the usual restart procedure?

I've been waiting for this for quite some time. I realize that it is (and should be) a low priority. Thank you for doing the update for all of us.
8) Message boards : Number crunching : Project not showing in BoincStats (Message 70121)
Posted 20 Sep 2020 by paris
You haven't actually lost the credits. They are still available on the individual project accounts. I had something similar happen and, even though it is not a perfect solution, you can transplant your new CPID into your old stats URL's. For example into BOINC stats or BOINC combined or Free-DC. Things will look strange until the scaling is fixed which may take 60 days. Also, don't rush to make changes. Make sure that the new CPID has had a chance to propagate through all of your projects - that may take several days. In addition you may not be able to combine any retired projects with the newer ones, but you can use the old CPID for that. It is not a clean fix but it is much better than nothing.

Yes, I have. Seems quite similar to the xxx84xxx0 situation not too long ago. I am aborting the relevant tasks again until the problem is solved. I am keeping an eye out for other anomalies.

Posted 8 Mar 2019 by paris
Same here. I'm running about 12% invalid. Almost never an invalid in the past.

Well, this is interesting: I have an older computer running Darwin 10.8.0 that has NO invalids. The other two running Darwin 11.4.2 and Darwin 15.6.0 are the ones producing the invalids.

Do you expect the Mac compatible version to be ready soon? I have back-up projects keeping my machines busy but I am looking forward to helping with MilkyWay again. Thanks for all your hard work and the helpful replies I have seen in the past. It must take away from time spent on the project. I understand that the OS's that have the greatest returns should get the highest priority but I expect that there are a number of Mac users in the same boat as I am. Keep an keeping on. :-)

Workunits to my Macs started flowing around 2:00 am or earlier, depending on the machine. Thank you.
