I am running 6 projects. One (LHC) is dead, three (SETI, Einstein and CPDN) have server problems. The remaining 2 are AQUA and QMC. So I am never out of work.

Thanks for the advice, to keep my small farm happy with work, was temporary switched to MilkyWay.
Struggling with IP\s. URL's & "config*" isn't my way, it's too complicated & what is really sad - potentially, loosing all processed MB WU's - they will be oudated, when the SETI@home will be returned back to the normal operation.

Happy crunching !

The project has ways to extend deadlines, and they do use them in times of difficulties. Some of them are even pretty much automatic.

For example, there is a process which reissues work when deadlines pass. The reissue isn't done at the exact instant the deadline is reached, it's done when that process notices. If things are really busy, that will run behind.

Stop it, and you effectively stop time.

Hi all, I'm running 6 projects, since 2004 SETI, in 2008 EINSTEIN, LHC (NOT responding for over 3 month or so!), Leiden Classical and DOCKING@home. The last 2, still have work and or online ;)

And I did never ran out of work, only now, more projects are having trouble, it's a matter of 1 day, then I WILL run out of WU's.

My backup projects:

Einstein, Milkyway, Cosmology, Rosetta and Primegrid. Each with a 12.5% share.

Seti uses the remaining 37.5% :D

Mine are CPDN, Rosetta, SETI, WCG, The Lattice Project (does not always have work) I have never run out of work. SETi gets 45% of my time. the others run from 5-20% of the time. SETI is my only non "Real World" project.

My Main Projects are:
Seti (50)
Seti Beta (50) (Suspended if nothing new happening),
CPDN (20) (Just get 2 or 3 tasks, then set NNT)
Backup Projects are:
Einstein (5)(Suspended most of the time)
LHC (10) (Rarely get work)
Orbit (10) (Rarely get work)

generally speaking you'd want those numbers to add up to 100 since we are dealing with percentages. unless of course you arent running all those projects on all your PC's. BOINC does change the % regardless but it looks neater

Depends which Project is Suspended at any given time,

Normal is Seti (50), CPDN (20), LHC (10) & Orbit (10) which gets 90 total, or 70 total, so 50:20 to Seti, since there's Rarely work from LHC or Orbit.

AbNormal is all Projects Enabled, So Seti (50), Beta (50), CPDN (20), Einstein (5), LHC (10), Orbit (10) which gives 145,

Since i run Dual Cores, i want my Main Projects to run on a Core each, with CPDN having enough weighting that it'll complete in time, without going EDF,
and Einstein as little as possible so i won't get swamped with work from there.
I could work out percentages for each project, but that's a bit too much.

I have SETI set to 850 and Milkyway set to 150.

Of course MW has a higher RAC, but that is because of the video card in the Quad.

One thing that makes me wonder is the date shown on the screensaver:
it shows a past date (two or three decades ago), which makes not too much sense, since this project tries to figure out climate predictions (of the past?)....


I did a bit of looking on CPDN and came up with this Validation and attribution info that explains the dates used in the HADAM3P models which I think are the ones your refering to.

My Hadcm3 is running a sequence from the year 1920 up to 2080. The current date it has reached is 8 July 2023.

I think that is the date you have been referring to.
