It's possibly in two places.

The normal place is in the Computing Preferences on any of your projects.
Suspend work while computer is in use?
Should be set to No and then update that project from the BOINC Manager.

There is also the possibility that a local preference could be set that does the same thing. Look in the Messages section of the BOINC Manager when it starts for a line that says "Local preferences set, using override" or something to that effect. I don't use a version of BOINC new enough to do that, so I'm not sure what the exact phrase is.

I don't think I've run Sztaki for months, so why is it showing as the second highest in my credit earned for the past week?

For some reason everyone attached to SZTAKI got 255 credits. I got them, wondered why and found this thread. :smt017

Hey got a quick question. I could probably find out if I looked hard enough. But then that takes work. LOL

I'm wondering in what version of the BOINC client did it change the install directories? I was running 5.8 or so on all machines until a couple of days ago. Went with 6.4 with 2 installing areas. Manually changed them to where I wanted so the one wasn't hidden.

Thanks

I think that separate directories start with 6.2.19. But the scheduling fiascoes (IMO) start with 5.10.x.

I was wondering who is running a Linux Boinc system. I got something I would like someone to test for me. If willing, please drop me a PM.

These guys went on a tour through the Penitentiary Chapel where I volunteer, and they filmed it.

LOL, I was until yesterday, but didn't like the version I was running so put XP on instead. I need to experiment with different Linux versions on a machine until I find one I do like (ie one that is not too bloated, which is easy to change settings to do what I want, and which runs how I expect it to, not how some programmer who thinks he is saving humanity wants it to!).

May I suggest Linux Mint (Ubuntu under the covers)

http://www.linuxmint.com/

I find it quite friend overall and the interface is very tidy with things where you would expect them (if you are used to windows)...

@ Rick ... if you need a Linux box, let me know I have an FC6 image and a Ubuntu 8.04.1 image running....

Well, Pilot finished crunching Spin just as I sat down at the desk after returning from church. And I decided- what the heck, why not keep going- there's a few days before I take her in. So I just picked a project- as nice would have it- Einstein gave me only 1 project that's approx 22 hours long.

I'll be taking Pilot in Wednesday.

Just how powerful would the server have to be? What bandwidth would it need to have? What criteria would have to be filled in order for it to become a BOINC project, and not just one based on BOINC?

The problem with it being a BOINC project would be that we would be at the whim on David Anderson as far as the payouts.

But....on the plus side of that, we could pretty much payout what we wanted to because he has nothing over any of us. Unlike MilkyWay.

I really don't know what the server requirements would be. NanoHive was always a smaller project without a whole lot of users anyway.

I decided to adjust project setting according to which host can crunch at what speed.

"Home" settings are for slower hosts, and give 400% to MW and 100% to Seti, for those hosts that can benefit from MW opti apps (and generally get 108 credits/hour) but get a lot less for Seti.

"Work" saettings are for hosts which can get 100+ credits per hour fopr Astropulse, and I am giving those hosts 200% for Seti and 100% for MW (both running opt apps, of course).

Anything else I run will be given priority on it's individual merits (short term challenges, projects which appeal to me, etc).

I decided I cannot just leave any host running either MW or Seti/astropulse as neither guarantees 100% workloads. Between them I hope I can ensure minimal downtimes and get maximum credits (while remaining open to running other projects when the will grabs me).

Gonna have to experiment a little with some other projects on one or more hosts at some point to see what credits they give compared to what benefit I see in running them (eg medical research has more benefit than looking for aleins, so I wouldn't need so many credits, etc)

I will of course try out any opt app that anyone here develops (or that we find anywhere), as I am in it both for the science and for the competition :)

Yes, have more than one project going. As you said, none seem to keep us loaded up 100% of the time.

How is opti app development proceeding, if at all?
