And ya\'ll can add another for a resume failure \"I THINK\"...

I opened a Gedit box as sudo and for some reason the system hung up. I think my VGA dongle was loose... (I use remote VNC connections)

Anyways, after a restart, got an error... probably my fault..

Add me as well... 2 out of 6 3-hour tasks... letting a single 8-hour run now...

I\'m seeing about 1 in 50 errors as well. These seemed to error out on the wingmans machine as well. Clearly there is some glitch in the 3.30 workunits...

However, about 6 of them were because of me when I tried to increase RAM with mixed G-Skill/Corsair parts and it buggered up long term... Oh well.. I knew I was taking a chance... order more Corsair to do it properly.

Many error out now (with ram restored correctly) in the first few minutes or seconds and the wingmans do as well. Soooo, don\'t think it is really a problem on my system..

Also, FWIW, all my running boxes have GPU\'s do tasks as well.

It\'s too bad the WU display here doesn\'t show the normal Error, Pending, Valid selections that most BOINC websites have or it would be a lot easier to figure things out.

Still crunching! Seem to be getting fewer errors as I work through the last batch that downloaded..

Well now the R@H infection is spreading.
Milkyway is offline.
Poem is out of work.
So just Einstein is sending out work.
1/4 projects?!?!? weird!!


Good Grief, all projects have downtime at some point. Sometimes a \"master task\" is finishing up, sends out some stray WU\'s to complete, then it\'s all processed before the next \"master task\" generates a gazzillion WU\'s for us.

I know I shouldn\'t be surprised at the impatience of folks since I see it everywhere in life, but can\'t help it. BOINC-SIMAP has been out of work forever and Orbit is off until they get more funding in who knows how long.

Sometimes projects just end! Look at Archived projects on Boincstats!!!

But, there never seems to be an end to complaining... and to those that do, I say \"Join the other millions of us and do something else!\"

Patience is required... these folks are researchers... can\'t rush good research!

And complaining about hardware and A/C failures... well hell, complain to the wall so the rest of us don\'t have to hear about it. I spent the night in a motel room when my apartment A/C went out the other day, big deal! Stuff happens! Get a life and be an adult!!

JMHO

There are even a few additional types of tasks getting the validate errors with matching wingman results but there are fewer of them so I\'m just going to sit back and see what they do with these before sorting through more the chaff.

It sure would be nice if they would update their server software so that we could pull a task list by Server State / Outcome like some of the other projects have. It would make digging through the results a bunch easier.



Well, I am not a developer for their tasks, just a helper with hardware. These (all BOINC etc. tasks) are all cooperative ventures. Sometimes, the certain folks feel superior and/or embarrassed and clog/break the information circle...

Would be nice if \"someone\" that actually writes the apps would pop in and let us know somebody is awake! As mentioned before, some sort of Status message germane to the current situation? A one line Sticky NOTE for crying out loud?

LOL!

Anyway, plugging along with the rest of ya\'ll...

I am seeing validate errors (with matching wingman results) on tasks whose name has the form of:

T0590_boinc_nmr_homology_max10_loopbuild_threading_cst_relax_tex

A few samples would be:

414980981
414994609
414957506
414950332
415065606


Well, I suggest they give us a storage fee in the form of double normal points to house their flawed software on our systems...

LOL!

CUT...
These errors have been going on for AT LEAST 2 WEEKS and have been the topic of discussion in another thread on this board. These are all \"fresh\" tasks having been issued by the Rosetta server in the last day or two.


Any way to know WHEN this group of tasks was generated on the server? Could it be it\'s an old batch and we just need to work through it?

Or is it possible the errors themselves are significant in the process?

Few last days I got big pack of \"Compute error\" on tasks starting from \"T0xxx_\".
This tasks ends with errors few seconds after start. Some examples:...\"CUT\"


Yup, I just had a batch of 8 errors from 4 computers myself. Average 1 error per day per computer. (2 laptops, 2 desktops) In fact, just had like 5 real fast off main computer I just noticed in history too.

It isn\'t OUR fault and they only waste a few seconds. I\'m sure the PTB\'s are on it.
