Why the heck is there no graphic showing on these models?

They'll be along later. There hasn't been time to write the graphs program yet.


And you know about this?

Would feel better to have an answer from a project scientist

Not 'wiped out', archived.

This is mentioned on people's Account pages, not far from the top.


oh,I understand that Les..

1.80-1.89 s/TS on Linux, much faster than the last batch on the Beta site

Thanks for that note cwhyl. The applications build date suggests it was compiled back in 2008, and I would swear that that version was slow on Linux. Perhaps a rebuild that isn't advertised on the applications page?

Ah, I compared to the latest highly optimised 6.05/Beta batch that was 2.7!! times slower than Jims' Q9550/2.8 GHz Win7

My boxen is Q6600 at 3.2-3.4 GHz

I don't remember the speed of the latest hadcm I ran here some years ago and the record seem to have been wiped out :-(

Here I've seen 1.11 and 1.50 s/Ts on newer windows i-series machines

My four models haves past the first decade and uploaded the 15Mb 1.zip

I thought they would show some graph like in the former hadcm variants I ran, no?

I don\'t think it\'s so great.
It\'s not stable.

My hadcm3 control run shows trickles alright but the graph disappeared and server state says "over" and "client detached", although it's still running fine in year 2062.
Hope it comes back, was fun to see this cold model: 8390738

Until now every time there's been a file upload problem the programmers in Oxford have solved the server disk space issue before the BOINC 14-day limit. We know that Milo is already doing everything he can. I am confident that he will succeed again.


Thanks, Mo.
The current situation is that there is apparently some money that I can spend, and I have a quote for a suitable server, but before I can send the order I require a signature on a form. When I will be able to get that is at present unknown. Usually, orders for servers take about a week once sent.

Unfortunately, switching uploads to other systems isn't a possibility at the moment as there isn't enough space anywhere.

Ideally I would like to have new servers in place before we run out of space, but managing to secure money in time to do so is very difficult.


OK, Oxford has their priorities, well, I have a lot of results to upload and going on a vacation now so I guess most of them will be lost, well well

The BBC forum had to be set up separately because the BBC insisted on having it. At some point it will be closed down, I\'d guess before the end of 2007. Then we\'ll be left with two main forums - this one and the php.

There is no way the php forum could be eliminated as it has so many advantages:

*allows access to email addresses

*allows private messaging

*the admins and mods can rearrange the sections and start new ones depending on what the project and members need

*allows search of memberlist

*has allowed creation of a hidden section for admins and moderators to discuss things

But it also has disadvantages:

*php attracts spammers

*you can\'t click on a poster\'s name and get to the person\'s workunits and results

*the php server isn\'t under the direct control of cpdn, at least at the moment - it\'s at the Open University in Milton Keynes, whereas cpdn is at Oxford Uni

*the php forum has twice been out of action for extended periods and all cpdn members needed to come to this forum to be able to post

The advantages show, I think, why the php forum must remain. The last two disadvantages show why this forum must also remain.

We all know that Carl, Tolu and Milo cannot possibly look at all the threads regularly and still do their job in Oxford. If we only had one forum, this would still be the case. The moderators know this and we make sure we visit all 3 main forums regularly; it will be easier for us when there are only two.

On all three forums there are lots of very knowledgeable and experienced members who also help. Every day and for years. The project doesn\'t just depend on admins and mods; there are large numbers of helpers. It\'s very useful if regular posters on this forum can also register on the php (preferably with the same name!) so that if we do ever need to contact a member privately, we can do so. And vice-versa, of course. To use the advantages of both forums is the most flexible solution.

I consider that ALL three main forums, which are what concern us here, are maintained properly.

No, I wasn\'t referring to the April flaw but the switch on a sulphur parameter in the 5.15 models compared to the 5.08 models that shows different output

Carl said some half year ago that implementing 40-year models would take about 2 weeks of full time work to do
I guess, and I guess this would be the same kind of software that can restore all the crashed models?

The 160 year model was just one option when the coupled model was ironed out
I think that was a mistake

A normal human beeing wants to finish a given task :)

Hm, I see a lot of posts have been deleted from this thread, including mine.

Another observation is that the moderators Les and mo.v are not running the project themselves, how can you answer peoples questions if you are not in the \"dirt\" yourself?

If the admins don\'t have the time to look into this forum then why not shut it down?

So my earlier post was moderated out, what was wrong in that post?
You need to know that the Boinc credit system have been highly inflated by optimised clients depending on the benchmarking system.
Climate never had this problem thanks to Carl.
