Rysiu. Updated badges? Not badges? :-(


Promises are cheap and If a commitment is based on your word and honor then that is the currency that is credited and debited .... a statement was made and expectations were set. If the Admin does not follow through then his repatriation and honor are what is lost. Excuses don't actually factor in.

*** UPDATE ***

And 3 hours later I received a trickle of PERF tasks before it went back to waiting.

As side note the project web site is very sluggish so who knows what is going on.

My Windows system is requesting CPU PERF tasks and the Server Status page shows tasks available but they are not being released. BETA Test work enabled in preferences and previously completed.

Thanks

As I said over on the Computational side of the house, not feeling the love here. :(

Why don't you feel the love? ;)

We don't feel the love because the effort to create and implement badges for this project appears to be too much work for the people running the project even though it would be an easy way to thank the volunteers who are crunching the work.

No need to use such a big and red font :)
My monitor almost cracks :P


Sir I agree.... If I may make a suggestion the Gentleman with the Red Font .... "Dr Who Fan" shows as a Volunteer Moderator. He has miss used his authority as a Moderator to say that my posting requesting that he be civil in his postings was offensive.... it stated ... Your post was categorized as Flame/Hate mail

I suggest that as Project Administrator you remove his authority as "Volunteer Moderator"

Post:
Without understanding the apps and functions. Is there a value to the project to increase the science and amount of work in a PERF task to extend the runtime to

1 reduce the total number of tasks to be processed
2 reduce the network load for both the project and volunteer
3 reduce the periods of no tasks available. (if a task is not available then no science is being done and the volunteer client is wasting time requesting work that is not there.)

Thanks

Your computer's are hidden so I can't tell if you are Linux or Window based and what their capabilities are. Assuming that you meet minimum requirements for either side what does your Event Log show after an attempt to get work ?

The problem is probably caused by too many tasks in the database.
The database server has performance problems.
This is related to earlier problems (bug) with the task generator.
I think that if the number of tasks in the queue (PERF) decreases, the problem will also be minimized.


As a new member with no credits posted how did you gain this wonderful information ?

A bunch of machines on the project, no tasks at all. 10000 tasks to be sent.
What gives?


Currently both Applications are new release and are BETA. To get these you have to answer "Yes" Run test applications? in the iThena Preferences on your account.
