I get the occasional work unit for this kind of work unit. They seem to run correctly for me even though the fail for someone else first. For example,

My machine is 1256552.

But there was something wrong with the way it actually worked. And this has happened with all "recent" hadcm3s work units. They start up, and in a day or so, they deliver a trickle, and I get credit for that trickle. They they run for a week or two, and complete normally, but deliver no more trickles and they get no more credit. So what was it doing with all the extra computing time?

If you look at the message logs, you'll see that boinc is sending up trickles, and file uploads every 1 year, so the data should be getting up to the server. But the only trickle listed on the webpage, and credited, is the 1st one after 1 model year. The problem has something to do with the other models getting trickles and credits after 1 model month, and the hadcm3s after 1 model year. They know about the problem, it was reported long ago, and has never been fixed.

But there are no credits based on full completion awarded? It seems not. It appears it did send up 13 trickles... Here is the last of a bunch. (This may not be the same work-unit, but they look the same.)
