Hi folks! Next bunches of workunits will be created with deadline equal to 2 days. :)

Hi hoarfrost,
Can yout tell when these bunches will be available? On this target or later, on the next target?

People will be able to download "valid" wus from May 2nd. Therefore hype would have been there anyway. However such long wus will surely help to spread the load. They need only build plenty wu buffer before sunday
I was being facetious but you know there will be a huge phalanx of synthetic computers with synthetic CPUs sucking down as many WUs as they can starting as soon as they can. Then in 3 days real hardware moves to the fore.

Be interesting to see what happens to OpenPandemics when folks want to continue running OPNG but are stuck getting OPN simultaneously. I predict WCG will see a lot of aborted OPN WUs.

Hi folks! Next bunches of workunits will be created with deadline equal to 2 days. :)

Hello Projekt-Admin(s),

first: I understand and respect that Project-Admins are free in their decisions and have to keep their projekt functionable.

But you are nothing without us, the crunchers and we are nothing without you. Crunchers spent a lot of money and time only for the science, they never see any monitary return of investment.

So, the crunchers have to get fun on other ways and one way is competition. Competition like Formula BOINC, Pentathlon and others.

The Pentathlon was created with several aims: Bring fun to the crunchers, make smaller Projekts better known and more.

Sorry, that now I have to say this, but you took a lot of fun and necessary strategy-thinking out of the marathon.

Together with pre-anouncement of the marathon and former stress with formular boinc plus having WUs that need several hours of crunching but don't have checkpointing this is really not a good advertisement for sidock.

A lot of teammates and me are very upset and I'm shure a lot members of other teams see this just like us.

As I mentioned already above, yes, it is your decision but from tactical timing I think it was very counterproductive.

Even if the project had been announced by the pent admins as scheduled there would have been no strategy change due to the short deadlines. You have no reason to be upset.

I've been in this business since december 2004. :) Shorter deadline is good for faster workunits validation also.

This may be easy to do. Here's the setup that's working for me:
Set SD to Resource Zero.
My BOINC work queue is set to 0.50/0.01 days.
Set WCG OpenPandemics - COVID-19 Project Limit to 64.
Suspend enough OPN WUs so that SD WUs DL and add up to more than half a day.
Unsuspend OPN WUs.
OPNG WUs continue to be DLed but no more OPN WUs.

If you want only OPNG wus it easy.
in your wcg device profile (home, woek, school) select only OpenPandemics.
Then below "processor Usage" set " Allow research to run on my CPU?" to "NO"
in " Graphics Card Usage" enable your GPU by setting "YES" near your GPU type
Save the profile

Be aware that OPenPandemics is currently under GPU stress test, so there are lot of wus. After that thwy will return to low numbr wus

Didn't think of that since I'm in the habit leaving HST Unlimited. Also, when SD runs out of WUs OPN will backfill.

Not any more. Only 2 days left of stress test and now they're having storage/backend problems.

Well, this might prevent you from participating in Javelin Throw on WCG MIPS.

And now for something completely different, namely getting back on-topic:
Congratulations on your new server!
It might help you to keep the project flowing smoothly even during the Pentathlon.
I really hope your research gets an additional bump through it.
I'm looking forward to further participating in this project!

Thank you for the Pentathlon, folks! Many computations performed and we reached a 40% of completion for fifth target (corona_Eprot_v1).

Congratulation to whole Sidock team for providing plenty wus :)
If i remember correctly, before start it was at 16%
Do you have an estimation on how many wus were processed?

From 2021.05.05 00:00 and 2021.05.19 00:00 total 935938 results were received. (Two results need for each workunit).
