Gridcoin blacklisted ClimatePrediction.net for only providing weekly score updates.
I wonder why they cannot do daily???

Old question answered many times - the script takes too long to run and clogs up the Uni's system.

Enough computers many times over to run the models that get released.

Andy was working on an alternative script that wouldn't use so many resources but I have heard nothing of that since the big crash a few months ago.

A very simple solution would be to do what most projects do and only give credit for completed tasks rather than basing credit on trickle up messages which happen at the same time that the monthly zips are uploaded.

However this would mean that when tasks crash sometimes after two weeks or more of computation, no credit would be given.This would annoy a different set of crunchers!

A bit like Brexit, whatever happens, many will not be happy! Personally I think the current system is acceptable. When other important work is completed, it may be that Andy has time to return to work on the new script but until/unless that happens I doubt if there will be any change.

That alternate script would be appreciated.

I'd love to crunch this regularly; this was my first project when joining BOINC in 2007 after leaving SETI@Home in 1999. As of right now I've compromised: I maintain 300 magnitude for GRC as a way to pay for the other projects that aren't on our whitelist. The donated time went to RakeSearch, Primegrid and, in a vanity goal, an attempt to get my name on the 180 list at WUProps by giving 100 hours to a bunch of projects' WU's.

Hot season approaches and our local utility still have some gas and coal fired plants, so shutting down machines rather than use A/C. Crypto currency shouldn't hasten climate change; and when it uses electricity, it should heat homes and provide useful information rather than attempting to crack senseless codes.

Aurum's attitude doesn't reflect the entire GRC community. We chose to focus on GRC, instead of other cryptocurrencies, because the science is important. Many off topic discussions, in our chat rooms, are about the advancements in science.
Many of us recognize an oncoming job loss to AI, and an ever widening world-wide wealth gap, and see that our managing machines for science has value. We should get paid for our work and are building a method to do so.

I see the women heating her house in Siberia with computers grinding for BitCoin as a wasted opportunity since she's gained heat and some money but the community didn't gain any advancement in scientific knowledge.
