My little Linux server is getting hungry for work. I'm now working a lot more SETI than CPDN. Any ideas when new Linux WU are coming?

The next lot of new model types will be regional ones for Windows.

As for Linux: In the future.

I have now got BOINC installed under wine on my machine but will only get around to trying it if no more linux tasks arrive before I run out of what is there. I picked up a resend of one of the latest batch the other day so there are almost 700 hours of processing to go before I run out on the machine that runs 24/7.

I will let the boards know how I get on with it.

It looks like all of us Climate crunchers are only going to get a lump of coal in our Christmas stocking this year.

Thanks for the information. Do you know if these will have graphics?
Merry Christmas

I don't have any info about the graphics.
Or when these new research centres will start submitting data sets.

There's a short description about them here on the project's front page, bottom right.

Edit
Sigh. There's always a "But ..."
For the Mexico models, try this page.
I'll email cpdn. After the Christmas break.

I have now got BOINC installed under wine on my machine ...

WINE is an option I was thinking about trying on one of my Linux boxes. From past experience running Windows binaries was rather a crap shoot, some did work but more didn't. So I think it's great getting Windows BOINC installed, but whether the CPDN tasks will run could be a different matter. I'll be very curious how it goes for you.

Now that power cord getting pulled over Christmas has got rid of tasks from one machine, BOINC has successfully attached to CPDN. Just waiting for tasks now to see how it works.

George who suggested it to me is an experienced cruncher and one of the moderators and has been successful with it himself. However don't start the wine one when you have linux one running, they won't work together and I think it may have made my linux client detach from the project losing the work it had.

As soon as I can offload some obligations I working on, I'm going to have to try it. Sounds indeed like WINE has aged nicely, more stable than it used to be. FWIW all the Linux tasks either finished or crashed in the last couple of weeks, so ATM none are running. Since it doesn't appear too likely new Linux work units are on the horizon, starting up WINE a few weeks from now shouldn't be a problem.

Chances are, they will want to look at the very wet late December weather that led to the recent floods in the Mississippi Valley. If those are going to be periodic with El Nino, there will need to be a lot more planning for them.

According to the science page for the Mexico models, it's for 2004-2005.

4 Tasks currently downloading under Wine :) estimated time to completion 46 days but that could mean anything as under wine it counts as a new machine running windows XP! First has now been running for 4 minutes giving .03% completed which I estimate as a tad over 10 days to completion.

Now they have been going a bit longer I think we are looking at around 20 days to completion.

I am running 9 WAH2_eu on two machines ranging from 10 minutes to 5 1/2 hours, with no early failures yet. It is a promising start.

But on a third machine where BOINC is installed as a service (otherwise similar to the first two, where BOINC is not installed as a service), I had the first one error out after only 19 seconds. But a second one is running on that machine after an hour, so it is somewhat inconsistent. I have seen that before with some types of work. (Win7 64-bit, BOINC 7.6.22 for all).
climateprediction.net 7.08 Weather At Home 2 (wah2) wah2_eu25_f1db_195212_12_285_010247170_1 00:00:19 (-) 1.78 100.000 - 12/23/2016 7:03:16 PM Computation error

This is not a good sign. I will not run these any longer as a service.

Running 6 on two machines. Three new issues and 3 re-issues. About 5 hours in so far and looking OK.

4 EU running under Wine.
4 trickles/zips each have been uploaded, at just under 12 hours apart, so 6 days to complete.
Which is a bit different to the initial 1000 hours estimate when first downloaded. (After 50 hours running, they're now down to about 640 hours to go.)

zip size started at about 68.6 M, but is slowly increasing in size.
