Thanks Les, you pegged it. I'll abort those remaining zips.
2) Questions and Answers : Windows : Units are not uploaded (Message 59516)
Posted 26 Jan 2019 by mewbysea
I've got 4 trickle uploads from one project that are partially completed but won't finish. They may have been partially uploaded and gotten hung up when the computer was taken off-line for 10 days. The event log is claiming transient http error, but the rest of the transfer queue cleared and nothing else is waiting.

Is there a way to restart those uploads from scratch? Other options?

I've had several windows pop-ups like that, and the same line and position in the stack trace.

4) Questions and Answers : Windows : Boinc Manager asks for adminaccount (Message 34155)
Posted 26 Jun 2008 by mewbysea
How can i get started the boinc manager without adminprivileges? it should be running in normal user account.

Windows Vista Home Premium, Microsoft
AMD Turion64

I have not had a problem running this as a user when BOINC is not set to run at start-up. Just say \"allow\" when the somewhat annoying Vista Pop-up that you apparently can\'t teach asks you if it is OK to run the program.

That would be a great help. Assuming it would be applicable to APS@Home (presuming they also have large multi-day, -week, -month wu\'s) as well as the CPDN family of projects. Have also seen Einstein wu\'s reaching into the 20-30 hour range, and QMC at 12-15 hours so likely to be of use on those projects also. Do more \"votes\" from other project help boost the priority?

I passed the 500,000 mark this week. Celebrating with an appropriately chilled beverage as summer sets in.

....or at least try to get in touch? Hasn\'t returned a single wu yet, but what a queue of errors! The user only has the one computer listed on the account, but is
apparently in regular contact with the servers.

Just happened across this while reviewing my wu\'s ---)

Hi Sangamon, fancy meeting you here!

No need to worry about that message, it should disappear again in a day or so. It is benign, if annoying.

If it lasts for a few days, you can shut down BOINC and do a system reboot. That usually gets everything resynched again.

9) Questions and Answers : Wish list : A CPDN skin for BOINC... (Message 27777)
Posted 7 Apr 2007 by mewbysea
Anyone working on a CPDN skin for BOINC?

Having only recently upgraded BOINC and only now getting some understanding of BOINC skins, just wondered if someone with better graphic expertise than me (which would be almost anyone!) was already headed down this road -- or if I missed such an announcement on the other boards?
10) Message boards : Number crunching : If you need models that quickly.... (Message 25222)
Posted 22 Nov 2006 by mewbysea
From mo.v on the regular CPDN boards (News), 16 November 2006:
We\'ve now passed the initial target of 2500 transient coupled (160-year) models

but Carl\'s now saying that the Oxford researchers do really need 5000. So please keep going!

I\'d be happy to finish off the last 45 years of this model if you can find a way to send it back. (It apparently tried to write to the disk at the same time the virus scanner was looking at that block. Unfortunately, no back-ups on my end -- a lesson now learned and applied, thanks to the helpful posts by Les Bayliss and others.)

The model was running pretty hot in surface and ocean temp, but in the middle of the pack for precipitation. I realize it is probably an incredible pain to locate one model and its various pieces, so I truly don\'t expect it, but if you get bored one day...--) In the meantime, happily crunching away on the next model, and have boosted the CPDN resource share now that SAP has finished.

(Couldn\'t find Carl\'s post, but here\'s a reference to it:

Thanks astroWX, did some searching on the classic boards from your lead. Apparently this is a not so unusual error with the coupled model, but more likely anit-virus conflict with that particular file at that time. I\'ll strike it up to bad luck and see how the other models go.

I got one of these errors today FOR WU id 5335791. The model quit less than an hour later. The Results page wasn\'t much help, so I figured I\'d at least add what the error message said:

Passed 200,000 in CPDN this week.

Thanks to Carl, Miles, Tolu, and the rest of the crew for a smooth running, continually interesting, and computationally challenging project. Makes all the crunching fun!

15) Questions and Answers : Windows : computer is overcommitted (Message 20741)
Posted 25 Feb 2006 by mewbysea
Hi Michael,

Can you be more specific about your problem? The log you show indicates CPDN is crunching your sulphur model. The computers listed on your account all seem to be sending in data. One computer does not seem to be active at all, but I\'m not sure it would be crunching sulphur units from August.

I\'d recommend that you change your preferences to allow the model to remain in memory - that means you don\'t loose what you\'ve crunched between trickles when you use the computer for other chores. Don\'t worry about the \"overcommitted\" part, it sorts out in a day ot two.

You will have a unique account ID for each project. If you are using the same user name and e-mail address on each project, the cross-project ID will link your accounts for stats purposes.

18) Questions and Answers : Getting started : resend account id? (Message 15013)
Posted 9 Aug 2005 by mewbysea
Hi David,

Be sure your account reflects your current e-mail addresss, then log out of the "your account" section on the CPDN webpage. When you try to log in again, there should be an option to request a lost account ID. It will be sent to your e-mail of record, and that will let you add the second computer.

Happy crunching!

Good idea Les. Done.

20) Questions and Answers : Wish list : BOINC should recognize server notices and delay contact (Message 12457)
Posted 10 May 2005 by mewbysea
Oover th last day, CPDN was having some server problems, and, when able to allow BOINC to connect, provided this information: - 2005-05-09 19:41:10 - Sending request to scheduler: - 2005-05-09 19:41:23 - Scheduler RPC to succeeded - 2005-05-09 19:41:23 - Message from server: Server has software problem - 2005-05-09 19:41:23 - Project is down

Unfortunately, BOINC was unable to stop itself from immediately trying to reconnect. I would like BOINC to recognize this message and delay connection for a reasonable amount of time, say 4 hours.
