Message 1205491 - Posted: 13 Mar 2012, 16:23:22 UTC - in response to Message 1205490.

Just now noticed that when I pull up my tasks list, there are now listed AP v6 and Seti v7 for WU totals.

Also check boxes for them in the Seti @ home user preferences settings.


That's highly disturbing. It means we're going to have some rough road ahead of us. :-)

Nice but if they where smart I guess they should have removed the AP v5 app.

Nice that they added preferences on main but, why did they not add them to Beta, where people are actually trying to run V6.

There will still be reissues running about for some time. I suppose that still gives folks the option of accepting them, or if they wish to receive the new apps only.

Is there really any left? Didn't know that.

That is a good question. Without that, 90% of what Beta sends is V7, despite it being 6.01 they wanted tested mostly. Logical it isn't Yoda says :-)

I don't think, that's possible. We are at least two years on 5.05 now, AP tasks have a deadline of about a month and the max. # of total results is 10. Even with 9 timed out results, the thing is over after 9 months, that assuming that timed out results are not counted as errors, in that case it would be just 5 months.

Oh, sh*t. Applications

Hold on tight, gang. This is going to be rough.

DON'T make changes to anything yet. We're on it, but we need to check, test, tweak, test again, check again, tweak.

Stay tuned to this, or a closely related, channel.

Try to discourage people from spawning multiple threads, all asking the same question. Let's all huddle here. Circle the wagons.

Perfect timing Richard. I had just made the change but hadn't hit the update button in the BM so I was able to go back and uncheck them.

Does anyone mind if I run around among the wagons for a few days, screaming: HELP, HELP, HELP?

Well, AP splitters are running now, but what are they splitting? 5.05 or 6.01? That I would like to know, because if it is 5.05 I can tell my computers to go crazy on them AP's, if it's 6.01, then I have no apps for running them.

Can I scream now?

I would recommend anybody trying for the new apps to set their cache size to a small value so they can catch problems before their cache fills up with stuff that won't crunch properly.

Take care Richard, and watch out for the arrows, now that you leave the relative safety here inside the circled wagons.

Edit: If we don't hear anything from you within the next hour or so, we will start screaming HELP HELP HELP!!!
