Thanks! I just checked the FAQ and saw that there as well...
2) Questions and Answers : GPU applications : How to stop download of GPU work units? (Message 1119726)
Posted 21 Jun 2011 by Profile Marcin Radzikowski
Hi,

I just got myself a new rig (old one as 8+ years old) and while I now have a good GPU (nVidia GTX 580) I don't want to run work units on it. While I can suspend the GPU processing, the client keeps on downloading work units for the GPU. Is there a way to stop this?

Thanks,

Marcin

I've had 4 or 5 of my last COMPLETED work units rejected by the server. I have no problem if there is no work or something minor wrong with the project. However, having my computer cruch the data, complete it and then have it REJECTED by the server is not right. I've detached from the project and won't be wasting my CPU time on this until it is fixed. Climateprediction.net doesn't have such issues and neither did Predictor.

4) Message boards : Number crunching : "To Completion" Estimates WAY Wrong (Message 11730)
Posted 24 Jul 2004 by Profile Marcin Radzikowski
Not sure if it is an issue. Someone on another thread suggested that the estimate has been intentionally inflated to make sure that people who have their caches set to something like 1-2 weeks won't grab a slew of work units and the rest of us are left with nothing. Don't worry. When the unit gets close to completion, your computer will grab a new one.

Plenty of work now! Everybody happy?

6) Message boards : Number crunching : Seti Classic credit after the snapshot (Message 10979)
Posted 22 Jul 2004 by Profile Marcin Radzikowski
Just read on another post that since the credit system in BOINC is the same regardless of the project you're participating in, you should be able to have stats that combine all of your projects into one! Cool...

Anyway, what is the big deal with SETI@home classic credits? Not very representative of what you've actually contributed since your computer probably worked on one unit a dozen times!

Here is the link for Pirates@home, http://pirates.vassar.edu/

Keep in mind that this is a real alpha phase of the Einstein@home project. So, expect even less stability, up-time and work from this one. But, with SETI, Predictor and now Pirates I should get work some times!!!

Go check out Pirates@home (http://pirates.vassar.edu/). Seems to be the alphs for Einstein@home. No work units yet, but good to sign up.

Predictor@home is down right now. They are having issues with the requirement that users have BOINC 3.20. If a user is running less than that it creates some problems for the project. I think they took it down to fix this.

Spiderman:

You're right on one account...BOINC is intended to allow users to participate in multiple projects with one computer. However, no project is obligated to make sure that you can process units at all times. They'll hand out as much work as they can. If there is a surplus of CPU cycles, well that's great! You can put them to good use towards other projects.

BrainSmashR:

If the software is bug ridden, why don't you enlighten the rest of us with your high and mighty insight into what the SETI@home scientists are obviously failing to see.

As Dogbytes says in the previous post...the issues are not with the software client or the analysis. Have a close look at the SETI@home client...still the good 'ol 3.08 under the new skin.

BrainSmashR:

So, how much have you contributed to the SETI project? And, I don't mean in the number of SETI@home work units processed...I mean in $$$. The fact of the matter is that SETI@home is a scientific project of immense magnitude being developed and managed by a handful of people. So, if you EXPECT software that works you'd better pay for it, otherwise let the SETI people do their work to get the system running. BOINC is completely different from SETI classic and the analysis software is not crap and it works. There are teething problems with the WU distribution. If you'd been part of SETI@home since the beginning you'd know that there were some major outages at the start and even well into the project.

Oh yeah...Predictor@home has something like 6000 users...they need some help!

If you really want your machine to "crunch data" why not sign up for other BOINC projects? There is Predictor@home and soon Einstein@home.
