ACK! just aborted a WU that had run 18 hours. I have run a bunch of these WUs but this is my first encounter with the "endless" WU. I did do as suggested in the thread and change my setting to 100% usage. Hopefully I won't have anymore "endless" ones, but I'll keep a closer eye on it now.

I think we can move our team up a couple more slots :-)

edit to add: Yeah! #34 now

I am running rosetta python on another PC which has less RAM but more disk space available to BOINC. Rosetta python needs 9 GB RAM and 19 GB of disk space for every task. It uses VirtualBox. I have installed VB 6.1.28, using it in rosetta python, QuChemPedIA@home and LHC@home.

Well, a couple of things I've learnt.
1: Best to have a member suggest the team enters a challenge (it shows the willingness to partake).
Three teams registered & have no points with just the one on very low points (at a guess, Team Captain blindly entered).
2: If entering any other with specific projects, start crunching them a few days before hand instead of on the day.
As for the team, nice work folks. :-)

#33 yeah!

I do wish I had started earlier, and I'll remember that next year. I cheer for every resend I get.

Yep. It should be close for 31.
Still, not too bad, 75 teams registered & we're in the top half.
A million points is respectable. :-)
A nice target to beat next year.

I am running two AfricaRainfall tasks, three OpenPandemics tasks and three MappingCancerMarkers on this AMD Ryzen 5 CPU. But in WCG I am enlisted to BOINC.Italy. In Rosetta@home, which now runs rosetta python using VirtualBox, i belong to SETIOrphans, Sorry.

Much prefer "We Will Rock You" in this instance. :-)
Hope we can keep 31 with 4 hours to go.

What happened?? that was weird. guess people on other teams bunkered... I can see doing it the week before, really don't see the reason to do it during.
oh well. It was still fun.
Now to go back to trying to get my year badge in ARP

edit: something weird happened. we were over 1 million now we are less than 900k.

That was fun. glad the data sorted itself out and we got #31.

I was keeping it current during the event for the most part with no cache. I tried in the last 12 hours to increase my cache to try and get some resends, but it didn't work, so I will be running MCM for a few more days to finish off what I downloading.

Very few resends kicking around - I've had 3 in about 250 tasks reported or running, two were the result of the first partner failing on an error, and one was a timeout.
I pushed my cache up when I joined as there were men digging a hole down the road from me and I expected them to do the usual and chop some of the comms cables - this time they didn't. When they spotted they had finished and filled I turned my cache back, but of course by then it was way bigger than I needed to complete the challenge, so now I'm slowly draining it.

Message 2088770 - Posted: 23 Nov 2021, 14:02:26 UTC - in response to Message 2088680.  

Due to people having humongous caches of MCM task, I have at the moment 153 160 results in "Pending Validation"
We could have needed those at the end of this challenge. I'm sure other members also have large numbers of "Pending Validation" results.

I noticed before on WCG with projects that needs a wingman, that people hoard WU's as if they were on intermittently working Internet connections.
It takes days sometimes a week, before the wingman turns in his/her results, and too often the WU becomes a resend when it never gets crunched.

Why oh why, in these modern days with "always on" Internet access, do people hoard WU's, on a project like MCM, where it never is any
problems to get new work? I can understand that you want to cache up on OPNG tasks, but not easy to get tasks like MCM.

This is not a bunkering thing for this challenge, it's something "normal" on WCG it seems.


. . Not just WCG, over at E@H I have seen so many hosts caching at least the full 20 days possible. Machines turning out less than 100 results a day with 1000 to 2000 tasks 'in progress'. It is ludicrous of course but what can you do? At the end of the challenge I had over 50 tasks pending, on a very moderate task kicker.
. . Oh well there's always next year :)

Of course, it's up to our team Captain to decide if he's going to register our team for other WCG challenges, but I'm not going to
add any of my normally shut down computers, until the next SETI Germany run WCG challenge.


. . We have been blessed with a cool wet period after the early spring hot spell so I have been able to keep the rigs running. But it seems to have come to an end, it is now hot and steamy (and not in a good way) so I won't be joining in any challenges until the cooler weather returns.

Stephen

. . have fun

Let us welcome whill44, the latest member of our team.
We're a small team, but we're getting bigger.


Thanks, it's good to be here. I'm still tweaking my system but it should be up to full speed soon.

ARP takes 19 hours on my AMD Ryzen 5 9400F. I have restarted GPUGRID since OPNG tasks are rare and my GTX 1060 is idle.

Just completed my monthly stat on energy.
Compared to the last few months, the only increase was for a total of £3 or so, so (wrongly or right) assuming that was down to the challenge.
If so, not bad. :-)
Again, assuming that the steep rise in costs are for gas, as electric seems on par with previous months (no cutting back on usual usage).
