And now we have a Credit posting that has hit our CPDN accounts so the next Data export will get them to the aggregators.

A Thank you to all who messaged and assisted.

My memory of the past was that the exported values of data and the time and date were updated daily regardless of the amount of Credit. If the Credit script did not run the dates would increment and the credit value would stay the same.

Well I have two systems with enough power to do a good job. And I happen to have gotten 1 WU on the better of the two. It has been a very long time without any Windows releases that had any volume so I will not stir the political pot.

Yes as long as they get "their results".... of course if the 3000 WU's were spread 2 per system across the available Windows systems the researchers would get their 3000 WU's back faster than waiting on fewer systems with huge queued stacks of WU's waiting on long due dates.

IMHO

For those Windows users waiting for a WU, like myself, a short giggle just to make you smile. Has nothing to do with not having enough work for the available Win systems,,, BUT....

If you look at the Application page the versions of Window OS's supported by the various application has never been updated to include Windows 10.

Example
Weather At Home 2 (wah2)
Platform Version Created Average computing
Microsoft Windows (2000, XP, Vista, 7, 8) 8.24 3 Nov 2016, 14:42:42 UTC 10,943 GigaFLOPS

New Work and Old Preferences....

During the recent update to current BOINC software all of the Project related preferences, (Which application you wished to run) disappeared. Are W/U's now being distributed solely by System configuration and capacity or in the back ground are "old" preferences still in play ?

Thanks

Question on a Windows 845 work unit. The following unit posted trickles and uploaded as complete and successful, but received no credit. As a side note during it's computation I did have a power failure as a result of the tornadoes that hit Dallas TX last night. I was not home but it appears that my system did a graceful shutdown via my UPS battery backup.

https://www.cpdn.org/workunit.php?wuid=11912558

Could someone more knowledgeable than my self look at the results to see if they were valid and if credit will be granted later ?

Thanks

Well it has been several weeks since Credit updates have been posted for export. Script scheduling or operator initiated it could use a bump

It also appears that the Stat's Export point that BOINCStat's and other statistic pages look at has been changed or affected.

Currently the Time update is 2019-05-29 09:16:39 UTC (14 days 04:00:49 old)

This normally updates daily regardless of Stat's Export which is usually a Sunday night event.

Dave

You mention a Test site. Is there another project that users can volunteer on to assist with "Testing" ?

The Project preferences under out accounts does not list permissions for BETA testing etc.

Thanks
