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.

Thanks for the update Jeff. It's easier to be patient when you know someone at least wants it done too. Regards, Rick

Jeff,
Any idea when Milky Way will provide the extraordinary Contribution info into the feeds for our badge signatures? I would appreciate anything you could do to expedite it. That badge is way too cool to go unnoticed. I think the visibility of the badge could get you additional contributions.
Thanks in advance,
Col. Rick A. Sponholz

I am pointing the MilkyWay team to the thread.
I think we may need to ask for any objections from the team and users and may need to reword some things on the donation page though it is scrapable data as is so maybe not. As for implementation it shouldn't be difficult it is just a simple db query to get the info.

Jeff,
Thanks for your quick response, and your thoughtful consideration. Rick

To whom it may concern,
Bok's inquiry, was at my request. I would like to display my Milky Way contribution badge, as part of my signature from Free-DC. Bok needs the info in order to display it on his website, and I need it there, to get as part of my signature. Please consider our request. Thanks in advance for your prompt attention, Col. Rick A.

Dear Milkyway@Home Administrators,
Please consider giving us a bit more time to complete your work units. I have an old Sony Vaio (263Mz 128MB RAM) which has been crunching seti@home since it was born more than a decade ago. With recent requirement changes at seti, my baby PC can't crunch their work units. I've been trying to crunch for milkyway, but fall just a few days short. Please give this request you serious consideration. Regards,
Rick

I'm not getting Milkyway GPU work units anymore. Getting plenty of CPU WU's though. I've tried detaching and re-attaching the project, rebooting, etc, but BOINC keeps requesting GPU work, but Milkyway sends none. I am getting GPU work from GPUGRID.
Operating System: Windows 7 Professional 64bit, Service Pack 1

BOINC: 7.08 for Windows 64bit (yah, I know it a test version, but better to find problems now)

Processor: 4 GenuineIntel Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Quad CPU Q9550 @ 2.83GHz [Family 6 Model 23 Stepping 10]

NVIDIA GPU: (4 GPU's, on 2 cards) GeForce GTX 295 (driver version 285.62, CUDA version 4.10, compute capability 1.3, 896MB, 821MB available, 1081 GFLOPS peak)

Any help or comments would be appreciated. Thanks in advance, Rick
