It's a matter of statistics. There's simply more chance that you encounter a machine running many tasks concurrently, so it doesn't need to be the cause.

You can see all trickles by replacing result.php by trickle.php in the link to the result page.

In the forum preferences you can choose not to display locked posts at the top.

That list isn't useful for the latest tasks. And Windows 10 isn't even mentioned.

There's no visible difference anymore between visited and unvisited links because the colours are manipulated.

Same problem again.

"Unfortunately, our website is currently unavailable in most European countries.

Search for ct-xpm-1988-11-06-8802130818-story and use Google's cache.

Post:
I would wish the client to show cpu time like version 5 and earlier instead of running time. Then we can see which task hangs.

Xeons are faster than other processors with the same clock frequency, and 16 GB should be more than enough. The project is supposed to run on home computers.
9) Message boards : Cafe CPDN : Op Ed Piece in the NY Times Regarding Climate Model Computing (Message 60312)
Posted 14 Jun 2019 by Alex Plantema
Post:
I see that some of the cheaper MB/CPU bundles have motherboards that only take up to 32GB ram. Seems a bit mad when the pairing includes an 8core cpu.

Each task uses at most 600 MB of ram currently.
10) Message boards : Number crunching : See which publications your crunching has contributed to. (Message 59966)
Posted 11 Apr 2019 by Alex Plantema
Post:
The links under the batch numbers lead to pages with a link called Restricted access to batch CPU analysis, leading to a page asking to log in using an unsafe connection.
The links to the first and third publications on the CPDN Publications page are invalid.

I signed up to Seti@home with a PS3 just to synchronize the cross-project ID.

After aborting the 781's I received three more of them.

Now you posted it in this thread. That isn't where people are looking for it when they need it. That's why I suggested to use a central place for it like the batch list.

Some information in the batch list about problems with a batch would be useful, e.g. what to do with it or a link to a message about it.

I wouldn't recommend anything less than Raid 6, because by the time one drive fails, another drive may have errors too, and without redundancy you cannot rebuild the set.

Last week I downloaded three tasks (20878730, 20878130 and 20876968) on https://www.cpdn.org/cpdnboinc/results.php?hostid=1425854 which I already downloaded last November and returned successfully.
Task 20425445 was listed as downloaded in May 2017 but wasn't actually received. It was also downloaded last week and returned successfully.
The original tasks aren't shown in the list anymore.
So if you find these low task numbers you might have processed them already.

In the future, a post on the HOME PAGE of climateprediction.net would be much more appropriate and visible to the community.

There was a post on the homepage about the problems.

Most tasks received after March 21 are missing from the list, and what is shown isn't ordered chronologically.
