Strange how those message boards are often good for language discussions ;-)

This board doesn't even come close to matching the thread drift I've seen elsewhere.

You can type Latin on any

You can type Latin on any keyboard. Like English, it has no diacritical marks.

RE: I published the 4.15

I published the 4.15 App to be official.

I hope it soon gets followed by another App that has some bug fixed I recently found in the BOINC library.

OK, I just want to make sure I understand what to do. I should delete app_info.xml from the einstein.phys.uwm.edu folder, and then I should restart BOINC manager. Right?

Thanks.

This is right in principle. However with the current project setting the app will not be accepted without a signature, i.e. the client will terminate the tasks in progress with a client error and download the "official" 4.15 App again (not knowing that it is identical).

The convenient way without wasting to much CPU time is to do this when a new task has just started.

The clean way would be to set the project to "no new work", finish all the tasks in the cache, stop the client, remove the file, start the client again and "allow more work" for the project.

Hmm, my task just crashed on

Hmm, my task just crashed on a restart:

Interesting detail in the stderr.txt:

I only just noticed that the earlier one also crashed with that error.

Will try a reset, see what that does. Perhaps that my datafile is corrupt?
I'll also check the disk BOINC runs from.

It looks like a disk error. It's not a corrupt data file, it's actually the checkpoint file that's broken. The zip messages are misleading, they have nothing to do with the actual error.

I just checked the disk, nothing wrong there. But something was wrong with the driver for my Promise card, so I uninstalled the old one and went back to a prior version. The computer seems nippier, fetching data quicker.

In the mean time I detached though, will run DIRMS on the drive and reattach tomorrow.

Hm, anything new about

Hm, anything new about optimized Apps that were announced some time ago? Like using SSE or something?

S5R3 seems to be very long, and faster Apps would help a lot....

Not much news. I have been

Not much news. I have been busy hunting Bugs that lead to more serious client errors, and for some reason I don't fully understand yet the SSE code that works fine in the MacOS Intel App give wrong results when compiled with a diferent compiler (e.g. gcc on Linux).

I'm still working on this, but the next two weeks will be very busy for basically the whole project team (for resons / deadlines unrelated to this project), I don't know how much progress will be made during these.
