Hello,

two (unrelated) questions:

#1
Why is the option to delete a host disabled in CPDN? From the 16 BOINC projects, where I participate / have participated there is only one other where this feature is disabled (XtremLab, and they say it\'s for project-related reasons, apparently they need the old host data). What is the reason for CPDN to disable this option, if any?

I have accumulated a number of hosts, which are no longer in use and will never be. Would like to clean up a bit. :-)

#2
Can I still access the old CPDN stats somewhere? If yes, could you point me to a link?

Thanks a lot in advance.

Best regards

Alex

Here you can only delete a host that\'s never been issued with a model.
The reason is that models take so long to complete for some people, and the info won\'t get removed for a few years.
But after 30 days, computers that haven\'t crunched become hidden.

The old stats are still there, but access to the classic area has been made harder to find to discourage people from finding and running that instead of the BOINC version. (Slab models are no longer needed.)
I think that the classic stats may be on the servers at the OU, which are currently down for maintenance. Certainly the php forum is, and that\'s where info on the classic stats location has been recently discussed.

When the OU servers are back, look at the blue menu to the left of here, and find the section on the Open Uni climate course. The access to the classic area is in with that.

Hi Les,

thank you for your quick reply.

Yes, but they are still in the database, which means they are exported to BOINCstats for example. For that reason I have now changed my computers listed by CPDN to \'hidden\'. Well, I can live with that. :-)


The access to the classic area is in with that.


Thanks, found it now. It is all still there. Just wanted to check some stats from \'the old days\' and my old account. I don\'t intend to restart Classic-CPDN. :-) Unfortunately I never managed it to include the old stats into the new BOINC account...

Regards

Alex

When we moved from classic to boinc we all started again with zero credits because classic wasn\'t a boinc project.

Yes, of course. But in the preferences part of \'your account\' is an option to display the old classic stats by entering the classic username (a bit similar to what they\'ve done at SETI@home). For reasons unknown it never worked for me.
