Hi,
I just found S├ębastien's email and I warned him of these problems.


Hi

Excellent news !!...(as long as the email address is a personal one and not related to the email servers of any affected websites !!).

Hopefully, he is not on holiday somewhere and he is able to repair the problem(s).

regards and thanks for letting me know
Tim

Hi

Hope you do not mind me posting this?

It seems that the Formula BOINC website has broken down, overnight (sometime just after 2am UTC Sunday 3rd Sept), which means the forum and the stats sections are not working. :-(

As admin of the forum, sadly I have NO ADMIN access to the website or the hosting.

So, as I have no other way of communicating with any members of FB, I thought I'd just mention this

Likewise, the WU-Prop project website and the L'Alliance Francophone team website have also failed or have issues.

Of course, the common denominator of all of the above is Sebastien, and I do not have his non-BOINC related email address or a contact phone number.

Maybe, if one of the active NumberFields members here can assist to contact Sebastien (if they have such details) it would be much appreciated.

regards
Tim
3) Message boards : News : GPU app status update (Message 2368)

So the new plan is as follows:
1. Deploy new cpu executables. Since it's 10x faster, I will need to drop the credit by a factor of 10. (Credits/hour will remain the same for the cpu but will obviously drop for the GPU)


Hi

In the past, I think that the NumberFields tasks took my PCs about 4 hours to complete and from my notes a while back the fixed credits were about 370 per completed task - so that's about 1.5 credits per minute.(I can't see any of my old results on the project so I'm not 100% sure of this).

Using the v3.0 CPU app, the 2 PCs I've run Numberfields on (since last night) are earning at around 0.667 and 0.835 credits per minute (respectively).

Am I using the wrong "old" data and making an incorrect assumption that the credits per hour are now less than the v2.x app? If so, then that would be a shame.

On the other hand, I do hope your server(s) can cope with the increased number of tasks being downloaded as well as more frequent uploads being made.

regards
Tim
