Hello :)

Just curious, which (BOINC or non-BOINC) project you will crunch "as of tomorrow"?

Thanks :)

For staying 'space' related:

Einstein@home
Asteroids@home


For going into other forms of life:

Rosetta@home


My Boinc list is much longer than those but just to stay s@h related...

Keep searchin'!

I'll continue to crunch SETI until my cache of WUs runs out. Then 100% of my crunching will be for PrimeGrid. It's been a good run of over 20 years for me.

I am getting thousands of Milkyway@home tasks via Science United, both CPU and GPU. I have completed more than 38000 so far and not a single credit, nor a badge which Milkyway is giving its BOINC users.

You keep posting about SU and how it’s not giving you credit. Why don’t you just stop using it already?

I wouldn't use SU either as I like to pick what I want to do and not have something/someone else choose for me.

Here Einstein can use my 1060's and Rosetta can use what CPU cores are left over.

Cheers.

What will I crunch, maybe what's in the signature since I'm already doing it.

Haven't decided just yet, but there may be some no crunch times coming and some adjustment of project priorities.

That is what I am planning to do but all my systems have filled up again and will be working on SETI for a little longer.

I'm leaving Seti has the highest priority project here still (100/0.1/0) until the work is done and then I'll adjust those priorities to let them run rampant (winter is coming up fast here in the highlands down under). ;-)

Cheers.

Mine will be

SETI - 100
GPUGRID - 100
Einstein - 0

that way SETI work will pop up whenever it's available, same with GPU grid, and only run Einstein if it's out of both of them.

Hello :)

Just curious, which (BOINC or non-BOINC) project you will crunch "as of tomorrow"?

Thanks :)

More housekeeping on the part of the BOINC staff, but what will they do with the platform, given they actively developed it for crunching SETI units, and then made it available to other projects. It's already out there, so people can continue using it, and it's open sourced so someone could pick up; but if they want to make a clean break, it would mean not actively developing the software anymore....

BOINC was developed by some members of the SETI team, supported by others. It was developed to allow other projects to use distributed computing to achieve their objectives. BOINC is open sourced, so anyone with the appropriate skills can contribute to its development, sadly the same cannot be said about all the projects that use BOINC to manage their task crunchers. Each of these other projects runs its own servers, looks after its own applications and (in theory at least) does not interact with the core BOINC development team beyond some technical support.
Th SETI team is now involved in developing the tools required for the next part of the analysis of all the tasks we have run over the years (due to the nature of this stage it is not really possible to be a distributed computing project). To make this a bit easier SETI has stopped distributing tasks, this has two effects, first is that the project team can concentrate on the job in hand, and second it gives a stable dataset for them to work on.

Universe or WCG. Both have worked well for me, but I'm focused on Universe right now.

Rosetta does it for me, although you need lots of RAM if you have lots of cores (allow 1GB+ per core/thread to avoid out of memory issues).

Finally had to restrict to 2 simultaneous tasks on 4-cores CPU (x86 OS there though). Now when vaccine created will return to E@h crunching perhaps.
