Ye Canna change the laws of physics !

Here's what should happen with Scotty on the job.

1. It Would get done in half the estimated time.

2. It would be 10X better than before.

3. Any nearby competing Boinc projects would be sabotaged and eliminated !

I've uploaded a bunch of intel_gpu files (slow, but better than yesterday) - but of course I can't report them and clear the database while the scheduler is down...

Just make sure that you use one of those old-time eight-inch floppies.

Same here. But I had to try again and again manually.

That's far too modern - surely one has to give the dev's a challenge to get hold of our data - so I've copied all my results onto a HP 5451, and the data is stored in numerous 32kb bubble core memory units - each is about 4U high and 19" wide....so, I'll put them all on a pallet and send then by DHL ;)

That's gotta be a surefire way to make sure the data gets there ;)

regards and happy weekend :)

Greetings!

The way I see it the upload server seems to persistently refuse any Gravitational Wave search WUs (when I attempt to upload those, the client instantaneously backs off). Everything else can be uploaded, although that is still fickle.

Looks like it's only one particular part of the entire project that's causing all the trouble.

I woke up today and all my fans were idle!

I saw the notice in BOINC which led me here. Sorry to hear about the major malfunction! Hope all is well, I'll be keeping tabs on this thread.

Update: we enabled the uploads again - for testing purposes - but we couldn't yet really improve the performance. We may try a few other things but any major alternative setup like moving the entire dataset will have to wait until Monday, I'm afraid.

Best,

I decided to check my laptop first thing when I woke up and I checked to see if the completed tasks that had been stuck in the transfer on the Boinc Manager and when I did a *retry* all 4 appeared to be transferred so I checked here to see if it said anything on my computer stats and that part didn't update and still says the laptop had not made contact since the 8th.

But.......I have NFL playoff games to watch now so I won't make it upstairs to check the other 5 hosts for a few hours

Good luck
