to get needed time, take expected time, multiply it by 2 and switch over to next larger time unit.


LOL! Oh that is GOOD! Real good! I do hope there's no copyright on that. :-)

Cheers, Mike.

I am not leaving E@H, but I do think I will take a few days off and do some reconfiguring on my own network to get a few more units online. I hope when I come back in a few days all is well.

RE: We are currently

Quote:

We are currently testing the setup for a new run that will look again into a smaller frequency range of the current S5R1 dataset with modified parameters (spindown and mismatch). We hope to start distributing this new workunits in the next days, so there should not be much of a gap to the S5R1 run. This run will last 2-3 months. It will consist of only one type of workunits that are a bit more than half as long as the S5R1 long ones have been.

I hope to have time to post some more info here as soon as it becomes available.

I have around 60+ datafiles waiting to report now and not getting anymore work. Should I/we kill everything that's waiting to report or should we hold on to them until you get things up and running again?
If you could put some information on the main webpage to let us know how you want us to handle things during this transition and the expected time frame it would go a long way to helping us schedule our computers. For now I've suspended einstien (not on dial up but its still affecting my network).

It's called Westheimer's rule.

And should you use 30 mins or half an hour?

*lol* Yeah that really is a

*lol* Yeah that really is a nice one. But Prefect, I guess it's not the scientific mind we're talking here ;-) this is admin business and that has it's own rules. Sometimes there's just no time to keep everyone informed, or you don't have anything new to say 'cause you're not sure when you will be finished yourself- or you have worked so many nights you just forget. It happens.
I wish the team every possible success with their task- I'll do what I can and crunch at least those WUs waiting on my boxes, and I'm sure most people here will do the same.

Hi folks, what about a

Hi folks,

what about a short answer to the above question of Arion :-)
I have nearly 300 of this short WUswaiting for reporting. What should I do?
Was this all for nothing, or will they be processed later? There are still 200+ to crunsh on my systems...

This will help a lot!

Many thanks in advance

Folks, It will come up

Folks,

It will come up when it comes up and BOINC will handle it. I'm not sure what the fuss is about. This is why one should have multiple projects to crunch on.
