I keep getting permanent "HTTP error" when it downloads a new file. I have now received this error twice and the project has to be aborted.

That's a nuisance. The workunit your model came from must be normal because another computer has managed to complete a model from it. Server status looks normal at the moment but if we have more reports of the same download problem we'll have to tell Jonathan.

You're unlikely to get another Hadcm model as very few are available at the moment. I expect you'll get a Hadam EUR model instead.

When will there be more models to download? Of any kind?

When the researchers are ready to release more.
Sorry, but that's how it is these days.

It has been weeks since I had any downloads, is any one else not seeing any work items?

I got one of the batch of PNW tasks on the 24th Oct so I still have two in queue for when the two running finish. Trouble is there were so many computers requesting work by then that you had to be lucky in the timing of the request for new work to get one. What is needed I think is a large batch of the full resolution ocean models as they take long enough to complete that even the fast computers don't exactly romp through them!

yeah,
8x HadCM3 160-years with ~1500h per WU an my PC have employment for some months.
Otherwise we are lucky, because we do not consume so much expensive electrical power. Last year ~2200 kwh per PC (but with "green enegry" :-) ).

I hope this time-out doesnt take to much time, and when CPDN will restart we got some new numeric models with 64 Bit and Multi-Core-Support.

In between i think its not wrong to find out any problems on the server hard- and software. Weeks of unforseen disreachability (PSU dead, HDD full, Databank inconstistant, Hacker-Forces) are really not cool.

Other question:

Will our last years calculatings build up one of the fundaments of 2013 IPCC-Report?

If you keep an eye on the news items here and on the other board, you will see when papers are published based on the CPDN crunching. I assume some of those papers influence the IPCC report even if they don't appear as part of it.

Hope things get sorted soon Jim!
I am going blind from trying to read by candle light (how did they do that in the old days)
They had things that looked a bit like glass vases that they put in front of the candles that worked as lenses to focus the light where it was needed.

Also, "back then", a lot, if not most people, were illiterate.
I'd suggest a lot of candles, large ones if possible. A bit late though if you don't already have lots on hand.

On this mornings news, (local time), one station showed queues of cars 20 blocks long, with the driver of one having been there for 7 hours.
There were people with containers getting petrol because their cars didn't haven't enough to reach a station. And one man was arrested for pulling out a gun to try and push into the queue.

It's nasty out there, Jim. Stay inside as long as you can.
Good luck with the aftermath.

(I wonder how long it'll be for T shirts to appear with "I survived Sandy" or something similar.)

Dear Jim,

I'm so sorry to hear this.
I hope you can get your heat, water, food supply and electrical power back on real soon.
Probable like most people here on the message boards,
I now live in a big city - (Vancouver West coast Canada)

- we soon forget ... how it is ... to be hungry, cold and with out shelter ....

Be safe and take care,
Byron.

Yeah Jim, stop complaining! :)
No seriously, I hope everything gets back to normal real soon...
I'm glad I live in a "meteorological stable" Belgium.

Its life JIM but not as we know it.
Hope things improve for you soon. We are all too dependent on technology these days.

Hope that they get power back to NY and NJ sooner than they planned. Last night was to cold to go without heat and another storm for tomorrow.

Guess that I am lucky, about 25 miles north of where the distruction started, only had one gutter dented from a tree and the new car is covered with dents from flying branches. Neighbor has a 75 foot tall Maple tree that is dying and it lost a lot of weak branches. Dents can be repaired, gutter put back up all that is important is that no one was hurt here.

The neighbor has wanted to take that tree down for a long time but it is hard to get at, so would cost almost $2,000 which he can not afford. I refuse to park the car in my parking space in back of the house when a storm comes because of the tree. This time I parked in the front yard and the still got the car. Left the old car in back (the one I wanted the tree to crush) and it was untuched. Just can't win with that tree.

Message 45235 - Posted: 9 Nov 2012, 4:40:56 UTC - in response to Message 45208.  

I was lucky enough to get one of those jobs to and ran it for about 60 hours...then something happened and every single job that was in my queue got aborted during the night and everything had an error message. I suspect it had something to do with the time change of time on the night of daylight savings switching since thats the night when it happened. Anyway, I lost my jobs and haven't been able to get any new tasks for CPDN since that time and wonder if there will be any forthcoming soon.

That was bad luck.

Due to an unrelated problem the programmers are probably going to do a BOINC upgrade for CPDN. It's a big job so I don't think they'll do it until next week. I'd be surprised if they release any new batches of workunits before the upgrade, so be prepared to wait for say a week. Crunch another project in the meantime.

The only way that you would lose all work due to a time reset, would be if your computer clock was way out, either in time or in date. And the most likely cause of this is if the clock backup battery was flat/faulty.
If there's no backup battery, when the computer was last turned off or rebooted, the time would have reverted to some time/date in the far past. So when the daylight saving switch happened, the time/date may have leapt forward a looooong way. BOINC doesn't like this, and must have decided that all of your work was now obsolete and deleted it.
