1) Message boards : Cafe Rosetta : BOINCs new logo (Message 44494)
Posted 29 Jul 2007 by Profile Cori
Post:
There was a discussion at BOINCstats going on if they needed a new look now as well or not. ;-)
Willy made a poll where everyone can vote for his/her favorite logo for BOINCstats and for BAM! (including the old ones if you wish no change at all).

So please spread the word and vote!
BOINCstats logo poll has opened!! Voting is possible until August 4th. :-)

PS: Blame me for these logos but not for the new BOINC logo itself if you don't like it/them. *grin*

Post:
new Members cant get help at Predictor anymore - they cant post - you need an minimum of credit - but it says not how much

I think they dont need any supporters beside Wate

Wow, that's bad! A big part of the community has been broken that way and even people not involved in the whole mess are punished.
AND new members will wonder why they can't post a simple (technical) question there anymore. :-(

Too bad many posting were deleted, but the latest thread has somehow survived, even if it's now locked.
Meanwhile there were some insulting statements, but not in the original posts from Friday evening/night (European time) and not in general from all users involved. ---> http://predictor.scripps.edu/forum_thread.php?id=2546#13866

There are two other, newly created threads as well.

Well, the "Trojan boinc installation" issue is concerning the whole BOINC community IMHO and I think the behaviour of the Predictor admin was worth a note on other BOINC based message boards as well.

Besides that I posted it here in the Café where usually also "off-topic" or non-project related things can be discussed.

Well, to be honest I did not post anything offensive there. So why should I apologize? But I'd take his apology...
The admin there deleted, banned and blocked not only me but several users because he can't deal with any opinion different from his own. :-P

Predictor@home is censoring massively at their boards and is restricting the freedom of opinion of their registered users in an inappropriate manner.
After a discussion had started about the attitude of the project administration towards a big cheating issue in this thread that thread was closed immediately to avoid any different opinion.

After that any new discussion thread and any question concerning "censorship" were "answered" with the immediate deletion of the postings/threads. Even accounts were fully blocked for posting (in my case until the year 2038!!).
In between even account creation was disabled to prevent the "bad users" from posting further questions. After that didn't help meanwhile whole IP ranges are blocked from access to the complete Predictor homepage!

I think it is not acceptable that the freedom of opinion is restricted in that way and I want to ask the BOINC community members to form an opinion about this. Try for yourself and start asking about this all at the P@H message boards!



There's an ongoing discussion over at the BOINCstats forum, where also the beginning of this whole mess is to be found. See: Trojan boinc installation by rogue member
7) Message boards : Number crunching : New host ID being created at every connect (Message 17240)
Posted 27 May 2006 by Profile Cori
Post:
Well, I'm NOT using BAM at the moment and I also have 14 entries of the same host. That's ok unless I want to start crunching again for Rosetta. It would of course be very annoying if every scheduler contact adds one entry more to the list... ;)

Edit: now after detaching and re-attaching I have host entry no #15 *LOL*
In the messages tab of the BM I have the usual line:
27.05.2006 15:21:35|rosetta@home|URL: http://boinc.bakerlab.org/rosetta/; Computer ID: not assigned yet; location: home; project prefs: default
8) Message boards : Number crunching : always calculation error (Message 656)
Posted 27 Sep 2005 by Profile Cori
Post:
I haven't even crunched a hole workunit... and I've trien some of them.. I think when I switch between projects... and rossetta removes from memory... an error happens. Anyone has the same problem?

Yes.. ;) It's better to leave Rosetta in memory. Then you don't loose the in-between steps of the processing.

And one WU errored out when switching to next project was happening.

4.77 is much better... :) but I noticed that when I shut down (just for the testing)BOINC manager the 'processor time' decreased from ~53 min (before shutdown) to ~39 min. Just wanted to tell you. ;) Nice weekend!

I just looked into my results:

Result for this WU:

Result for the 'successful' WU:

***UNHANDLED EXCEPTION****

Well, to me it seems as even the 'successful' WU showed an error, I don't really understand this.

One Wu finished successful (~9h), the other one failed :(
Error message was:
