For Linux users who have downloaded a new model in the last two days

The new Linux climate models, version 5.40, were within hours discovered to contain an error. A line of code inserted for testing purposes had not been removed. When a Linux 5.40 model contacts the server, it will receive a killer trickle to abort it. A new version 5.41 model will be downloaded to replace it.

Apologies from Oxford for the error. Fortunately not much crunching time will have been wasted on the flawed models.

What about Windows models? I downloaded a 5.40 model on Thorsday and it crashed unexpectedly yesterday......is there a flaw there too??

There shouldn\'t be.

Looking at the page for that model, you may be having HD problems, even though the HD doesn\'t get written to as often.
Was any other program running at the time which may have been competing for hardware resources?

Probably - I think it crashed when I was using Internet Explorer, ironically, to ask about how to get BOINC running on a Linux PC!!!!!
My HD is only 3 months old so should be fine, but I may run some diagnostics on it to check. It\'s a Hitachi SATA 2, 320Gb 16Mb Cache.

Best regards,

Neil.
