We're looking into it but the errors are harmless (albeit annoying).


You mean like this ?

Yep, Im getting as of now, 23 of these errors at the top of the Message Boards page :

So far, Those were the only two testers I downloaded. All the others are running fine.

I also cranked up the Windows ME with the BOINC 5.10.28, And it also is crunching on them sucessfully as well ! Almost 3 times as slow as my other system, But still it works hehe.

I have been getting those messages myself, If it helps here is what it shows on one work unit:

Well, I have an old Windows ME I could try it on. I pretty much gave up using it for anything BOINC a good while back. hehe

So far all mine have been running fine.

/Edit/ Just did hit two work units that are listed under the name "tester" that errored out with the following:

Yep, So far seems to be running fine... uploads/downloads/and showing the 2 credits per work unit now.

Good Job so far!

10) Message boards : Number crunching : Keeping Us Up To Date (Message 751)
Posted 29 Nov 2007 by Profile[B^S] Gamma^Ray
Post:
Not sure how many some of the users that complained, Has actually ever crunched on a newly formed Alpha project ? I think I'm close to working with 50 projects over the last years, Most of them are Alpha's and Beta's as I like to help them get off the ground even with my one pc. Compared to alot of those before this one, This one gets a grade of A from myself, Especially when he is basically the only one trying to keep his project going and all with whatever limited knowledge he may have had beforehand.

Just my opinion of course.

I also think Travis has/is doing alot better job on keeping us up to date, Than alot of other projects have/are.

Good Job thus far !

Post:

well, I for one would like to thank Travis for putting the time into this problem. This will not be easy, or straight forward.




I agree, When dealing with Credits the topic is always an active one. 2 per work unit will give users a better return than the one did. Now how do I get one of those special ones for 700K credits though ? LoL....

Post:
I also agree, That resetting all users credits to zero would not be good. As it would be like punishing the users running valid clients or whatever as well as the ones not. Not a good way to start things off with either crowd to me.

As this is still in alpha, Users have to expect things to be changed abit including the credits. I think that tweaking it as it is until its a happy medium for all is good. And for the ones that have been obviously using a hacked client or whatever, Perhaps when you have more time down the road you can just removed an X amount of credit from their scores using the copied print list of all users/credits as of now. Or just leave things as they are now and keep them even from now on with the new crediting system, As I doubt there any projects out there, Where credits were even (Or fair)from the beginning hehe.

Post:
If I recall right, Once Nano started making alot of work available, They upped their credits per work units way too high. It stayed that way awhile and then they eventually lowered the credit for each work unit, And then later removed a certain amount or percentage from each user also, Something like that I believe. Not common for most starting projects really, as long as the credit to work unit done ratio isnt too extreme to start with.

My only thought currently on the new credit system here, Is that getting less credit per work unit done than what your client says you are due (Using the standard acceptable client), Seems abit low, As most projects I have run usually are in the equal too, Or abit higher than asked for credit/wu ratio. Off hand and im sure there are more, PrimeGrid is the only one I noticed that grants lower than asked for, At least for the smaller work units there I run at times.

It might cause some users to not crunch as much here, If they can get more credit for each work unit else where, If that is a factor for the future workloads or work done here. Thats just my opinion anyways, For what its worth...LOL

Past few hours have seen alot less bad work units, And alot more stable ones running in the 7 Minute a work unit area. Hope it stays like that for awhile. :)

I have a similar problem, I created a team (BOINC Synergy), and am listed as the founder of it here. But in my profile I have no access to the founders page to edit anything, Nor are listed as the founder?
