I am looking at the release of the new N-body (1.74)this evening. This appears to be in the runs generated and not in the database changes but am verifying as I go through the error logs and see what is happening.

Sorry for the delay to the posting. There was an issue on the server before the maintenance window. This delayed this posting. The database is going down for a brief period. I will post a message when the server is operational.

The database is back up. There will be some extra validation as the feeder and transitioner catch up with the incoming work units. We will continue to monitor the status of the server.

Work units are coming back in and the feeder should be serving them out again. I am monitoring. There will be a few hours as the load balances let me know if you see anything on your side as that processes through.

The database is still updating I am watching this through completion. I am expecting late tonight early tomorrow morning to have the feeder dishing out units.

Hello Everyone.
I am Jeff Thompson and have been working on and off with MilkyWay@home since 2012, but I have been quiet recently.

For the next few months, on Tuesdays, we will be scheduling server maintenance.
We will post on the day threads for any issues that may arise.

This is a heads up.

Thank you for your continued support.

We are trying to see what is up with the runs.
The Jakes and Roland are looking at the code.
The error rates seem to be spiking and it may be the parameters it are in.


I don't have details to post now will post more to follow as I get some more tests in....

UPDATE: Jake Bauer has a fix in works and we are working to get that tested and out.

Post:
Travis has implemented a version that works with our form of the badges.
I am still looking at this implementation. Let us know if it works or not.


From Travis,


Hi Everyone,

I’ve updated:

/boinc/milkyway/html/inc/xml.inc

to include

/boinc/milkyway/user/display_badges.php

and updated the show_user_xml function to also add information about user badges. See:

http://milkyway.cs.rpi.edu/milkyway/show_user.php?userid=1&format=xml

I’ve also created a script which will export the badges, you can find it in:

/boinc/milkyway/html/ops/export_badges.php

This will write badges to:

/boinc/milkyway/download/badges.xml

Once a day, as I’ve updated the config.xml file to run it daily as a task.

No direct timeline.
I am organizing some maintenance on the server before I change the server code.
Also the way we do badges needs me to change the code of what David Anderson did a bit though I have a plan, I need to test it. So my timeline is within this month but there are other mission critical pieces we are working on.
Also most of the coding is trying to get GPU for N-body live.

Sorry I know this isn't a direct answer but I want it done also, though I may be able to get the new guy to do bits of it ;).

So I am hoping for this month but I can't write it in stone.

We are working on the science section currently.
We have presented at AAS at the beginning of the spring semester.
The work presented there we are getting up to the science section.
I was emailed this question early in the semester and replied right now we are working on the papers on the science being produced. The N-body project itself has a paper being worked on currently and the separation project has two papers that are being finished.
So we have had to balance getting the science in published form to getting the science page update. But one of the focuses of summer when there are less institutional pressures is to get our best face out there. And we have some new students that will be working on that. The science page is a priority for the summer.
Also I would like the visualizations to flow more regularly.

So yes the work is valuable and we are getting publishable science out of the hard work of everyone. Though it is not quite in final form I will post to the news thread when we get it completely updated.

Post:
I was discussing this on the boinc developers list they have now included it in the code base.
It will still need to be modified to work with the way we do badges but hopefully as this gets processed out in the mix it will be in a standard format for aggregation sites so that the processing is minimal at all points in the process.

Post:
So there are some different ways this can be done.
Trying to figure out where to plug it in.

If I get this correctly Bok wants all users with this flag set to true.
And you need it as information when you query your current user id.

So there are two distinct features around the badge status being requested?
