Re: Weekly DC Stats scripts

I edited the 2nd post (only the CODE section) with my current version of weekly_stats_dump_ukraine.sh: Some more guests, and minor improvements to the sed code for certain special cases of usernames. Edit, adding more guests is most of the time just a trivial matter of adding a line of the form &quo...

Re: Weekly DC Stats scripts

I wouldn't worry about that. FreeDC and BoincStats and the Asteroids@home site all show different characters in this user name to me. If this is not surviving the data export from Asteroids or the data imports by FreeDC and BoincStats, it would be a bit much to compensate for that in our import from...

Re: Forum software updated to latest version

The feed post bot has been hanging again since yesterday. It didn't make it through the Rosetta feed (but does now).

Thumbs up to Eric Driver.
The only reason for doing this is to keep the WUs consistent for the BOINC Pentathlon
One other admin could certainly have done the same, but did not, for whatever reason.

Re: [climateprediction.net] New study going out to volunteer's machines

So far they emitted only about 7000 tasks, which are all assigned to hosts already (IOW, 0 tasks ready to send) and of which 1/3rd has already been completed. Their feeble upload server should survive such a small batch easily. But the announcement sounds like a bigger batch than that.

Whoa, about 1/3rd (edit: certainly less than half) of the task duration of the current oifs_43r3_ps batches, but almost the same result data size per task to upload?
