OK. It's 2017. I think it's relevant now. Some other sites have used "diamond" as an additional level indicator. Just a suggestion?

I'm with Blurf and others here in support of badges. I, too, am a badge seeker (as my signature will attest) :)

I also feel that the current site navigation scheme is "well known" and doesn't really need an update. The Wildlife@home scheme is interesting, at least.

Just as an additional bit of input, there are other projects that have badges based on the different applications run, providing a spectrum of badges for a project. That could be done here, also.

Verified. Tasks are not saving their state when being swapped. Always restart from 0 if not running to completion.

Hi Paul,
No, it ran on the GPU. Just saw the same thing happening again. The task suspended at about 71% complete, and another started. I suspended all remaining Milkway tasks to force the recently suspended task to run, and sure enough, it reset to 0% complete and started over again, except the elapsed time continued from where it left off. I haven't seen this happen before, but it sure will cut into the RAC if it continues :)

This task took almost 10 hours to complete (GPU). Screwed up the completion time for all the rest of the tasks.

Is there checkpointing in the GPU application?

Having the same problem. Every result I return has been marked as "Completed, marked invalid". Think I'm going to NNW for awhile until this is sorted out.
