Hi guys,

I would like to thank you for being available for the BOINC Pentathlon, even though the project for the steeplechase was changed at short notice. I would like to show my gratitude by crunching SiDock@home for a while. I will later do this for the other backup project (Einstein@Home) as well.

Best wishes,

walli

Hi Natalia,

you are trying to load "https://www.sidock.si/user/currency.js" on your donation page ("../user/currency.js" to be exact), but this request leads to a 404 error ("not found") so that the "Estimated value in <currency>" cannot be calculated. At first glance, the correct link should be "https://www.sidock.si/sidock/currency.js".

Kind regards,

walli

Hi guys,

let's face the fact that (because of $reasons/$circumstances...) the challenge did not start at 0:00 UTC as planned but rather 2:30 UTC (first successful data import by BOINCstats). Many of us have already reported thousands and thousands of results by then which are all not counted. I'm curious about your thoughts in this situation and the further course of the challenge, especially with regard to the much sought-after "team badges"?

Kind regards,

walli

Btw., to be on the safe side, don't use the C style typecast in

double progress = (double)nRec/(double)estNumRecords;

as i did, but

double progress = static_cast<double>(nRec) / static_cast<double>(estNumRecords);

(or at least for nRec.)

Hi Natalia,

what a pity that you released the unaltered v0.1.2 by now. The progress estimation basically comes from CmDock itself and is quite accurate after ~10% runtime (-61 records => 61/500=0,122 => 12,2%), see:



What exactly do you mean with "... proper progress bar at the command line output."? You could simply put the "progress" variable somewhere in the "std::cout" within the "if" statement below :).

Or give us a concrete example of what you imagine and we'll take another look...
