My climate prediction task which I started over a year ago was due for completion on 4th April. However I do not know whether my PC has actually sent in the results, as the screensaver is still processing the unfinished task. BOINC has however been in regular contact with BOINC to send \'trickle up\' messages.

I want to be sure that all the work that my PC has done will be received by BOINC and not wasted, but I am not sure that this has happened as I now realise that I have 0 credits from BOINC.

Please tell me how to send the results before I can safely detach the task and lose the results that I have spent so much patience and electricity running my PC to generate for BOINC.

Please help me,
Alex

Several things:

If you only have the one computer, then you have 2 appearences of it.
There is a facility at the bottom of each computer page to Merge these back into one, which makes it easier to keep track of trickles.

Next, there is no record of any trickles being received by the servers.
Do you only have the one Account, or is it possible that there is another one besides this one, to which the Manager has been uploading these trickles?

If they HAVE been uploading, there will be a message similar to the following each time it happens:
2007-03-06 15:53:40 [climateprediction.net] Sending scheduler request to http://climateapps2.oucs.ox.ac.uk/cpdnboinc_cgi/cgi
2007-03-06 15:53:40 [climateprediction.net] Reason: To send trickle-up message
2007-03-06 15:53:40 [climateprediction.net] Note: not requesting new work or reporting results
2007-03-06 15:54:01 [climateprediction.net] Scheduler request to http://climateapps2.oucs.ox.ac.uk/cpdnboinc_cgi/cgi succeeded

Otherwise, all of the \"trickle_up_........\" files will still be on your computer, along with the 10 year zip files.

Only the Manager can return the results; there\'s no facility to do this manually.

PS
This forum is for cpdn crunchers.
If the models and trickles that you\'re talking about are/were on the BBC project, then that data will be elsewhere, and you\'ll have to tell us your Computer ID for the BBC project so that we can look there.
