Good. English language

Good.

English language will enable usage for more BOINCers.

One more - Czech translation for BS 0.5 is on the following link

I put a copy of your message on the dev thread.
Thank you for your repport.

For what it's worth, I don't think the unhandled exception error messages are anything to do with BoincStudio. They are to do with the particular combination of Akos' optimised science app and some particular sequences of results. If you look through the S41.xx discussion thread, there are at least three separate people, myself included, who are reporting these errors on specific result files whilst other files are being processed under the same conditions error free. It seems to be only a very small range of result files that are giving problems. In my experience I've just seen only one result file (z1_1269.0) give this problem.

I'm running BS_0.5 without issue on two separate machines that are using S41.07 and are running overclocked and are getting 100% validated results. There are no unhandled exception errors with these two machines. I'm running BS purely to get beyond the 32/day quota. Both machines were plagued with long runs of short results and were running out of work. I'm very grateful to the developers of BS for providing this very useful trick. You don't need a fast machine to run out of work. One of the machines is a Duron 1200 which is hardly the latest technology. I think it's quite cool to look up my machine list and see CPUID 430276 being reported as having 4 CPUs :). I've also noticed one of my PIIIs that is now being refused work. Looks like I might be owning a multi-CPU PIII shortly. Should bring a great price on eBay :).

I have run BS on one machine to investigate its ability to monitor other machines in a farm. I had no problems with the installation and attaching to other machines was pretty easy to figure out. I found that having used BoincView previously helped a great deal with understanding the RPC mechanisms. I'm amazed that you have got so far so quickly and I'm very impressed with the quality of the development to date. My sincere congratulations to all concerned!!

Cheers,

Cheers,
Gary.

There are several. If you are

There are several. If you are using windows and search for a app. Otherwise google rar.

The folks that developed this

The folks that developed this app have done such a great job. I thought I would ask them if one more step is possible. I have created an extra instance of my fastest CPU to keep it crunching E@H WUs. Right now swicthing involves a lot of manual intervention (which I will inevitably screw up). I was wonderlng if you could run the Boinc and E@H from two directories? One would run as the main app and the other as backup.

Thanks again

I would like to thank to

I would like to thank to ThierryH and his mates for developing this great tool. English version is nice and now I can crunch E@H with the full power. Very convenient!

I think we're just going to have to wait until the S4 run is over, and when the S5 run begins there should be a higher MDQ to match the speed of the new apps. Until then we might just have to "fake" our way to more work.

or 'WinRAR', Google it - there's tons of hits...
Cheers, Mike.

Thanks for idea, Gary - re-running BS 0.5 in the morning and got it running ('problematic' WU(s) are completed I guess).

Also dumb question: where should we report new md5 for other project's applications?
