This is the most stupid project I've ever crunched for. I have no idea what I'm even crunching! On the others, I at least know what I'm doing. :smt009

BTW. I'm now UOTD! Bumping Labbie out. :smt005

I may just have to go register again...it's not like I don't have multiple emails acounts and computers. :smt023

Have you actually gotten any WUs from there Dune? I haven't.

And Gavin, yeah, we know. We're just making KM's mistake of not creating a real thread for the project all the more visible. :smt038

Ummm. I made no mistake.

My intention wasn't to create a thread FOR the project.

My intention was to make a thread about the odd deal with the account key being emailed to me, but the email not providing a valid link.

I joined merely to get the name TFFE in there, but they don't have a description of what the project does. But I'm curious now. Apparently another teammate has been there for awhile, and she hasn't gotten any hits either.

I see though that Buga managed to get some action. :smt023

The standard BOINC project stuff

1 - Make a BOINC Project website.

2 - Get a bunch of people to sign up.

3 - Send out a few test WUs.

4 - Ask for donations to keep the project going.

5 - Be a hardass forum administrator and then shut the project down, keeping the donations.

Yeah, I created an account shortly after reading here. At that time, as Boinc trys to get the new info, I got nothing. Then forgot to set it to NNT. A few hours later (while in FC with KM) I opened Boinc to see what was going on and I had several wu's. I wish I could remember the name of the wu's. It kind gave a hint at what they are doing. But I can't remember at all. LOL I blame KM. But they were just test wu's. I do remember seeing test of something like that.

I have no idea what they are 'researching'. Nor does their page say so. I created a thread for the project like the others we have. When we know what they do I'll update the thread.

I guess that if they are new and just started, then they may not have gotten around to filling in everything. But I think telling everyone what they do would be pretty high on the list of things to do...

FOUR seconds?!?! Those are quite lengthy compared to some that I have gotten.

I have had a couple that lasted 500+ seconds, a bunch have been 2 seconds or less.

But I have 7 credits and a RAC of .7. :smt023

Four seconds was a guess. I do know they were really short.

They were barely unpacked & being processed high priority.

Mine are estimating that they will take almost an hour. At least the estimate wasn't in the other direction where we would get flooded with WUs.

They're running under High Priority because they have a deadline of...1 hour, 10 minutes...UNBELIEVABLE!!!

Glad that's the only project my laptop is running. Sheesh!

I'm working on one now that's been running for an hour, & it's still at 0% done. It's been showing an hour and 19 minutes till completion since a half hour ago when I started noticing it. I'm going to give it a few more minutes, and then cancel it. :smt015

Let it go, I had one that ran for over 40 minutes and another that was over 30. The progress meter doesn't seem to work, and I wouldn't trust that there is any checkpointing either. :smt023

Hey folks.

I did another signup on Edges Bridge with my calm chaos email addy.

I went looking for the team, and when I found it, I clicked on my name that was already listed as the Founder. When I did that it said " User not found ".

Could someone go to the team page there and click on my name and see if it does the same thing???

I want to try to figure out what the heck is going on because I tried to get my account key mailed to me again, and I got that same 404 error when I clicked the link it provided.

Oops! This link appears to be broken.

But it does that when I click my name too.

And BTW, you'd better watch out! We've moved up to #5, Thanks to me! :smt003

But if you look in # 6 position. http://edges-ext-dg.ceta-ciemat.es/3gbp/top_teams.php..... How can BOINC-SG have anything with 0 members?

KM, there are all sorts of problems with this website, you can't click on other people, the team search doesn't work (I had to go into the Top Teams list to get to CC), no message boards, etc.

For once, it isn't you. :smt023
