    SZTAKI Desktop Grid is launching a new test project called SZTAKI Desktop Grid Research Facility (szdgr). The aim is to improve the testing process of applications, thus improving user-experience (get rid of the credit problems, etc.) of SZTAKI Desktop Grid.

    The first task of szdgr will be to find the bug in the validation process of the NumSys Search application.

    We are seeking volunteers, who would like to help make SZTAKI Desktop Grid a better project. All you need to do is to attach to the Research Facility project, give it some priority, send us some feedback of any problems and also inform the volunteer community of SZTAKI Desktop Grid about the status of the bug-tracking.

    For a kick-off we will accept about 20 volunteer testers, this number may increase later.

    If you are interested, please send an email to szdgr@lpds.sztaki.hu with \"Volunteer tester\" in the subject field. Also list your available machine(s) (CPU type, speed, ammount of RAM, operating system) in the letter.

      One more thing...the test project won\'t have a forum. We will keep in touch via a mailing-list, so if you volunteer be prepared for receiving emails.

                Why not create a new category (SzdgR) in this forum (even if you keep the mailing list too) ?

                  As I\'ve already told the volunteer testers, they should inform the volunteers of SZTAKI Desktop Grid in this forum about the status and progress of SzdgR. Creating a separate thread for this seems to be a good idea. Go ahead...

                                  By design? Or just oversight? It would be good to export stats. The other \"testing\" project export stats, such as SETI Beta, RALPH, BOINC Alpha Test, Pirates, etc.

                                    I agree you should export stats, you\'ll get more testers, also allow teams.

                                        I agree you should export stats, you\'ll get more testers, also allow teams.

                                        SzdgR doesn\'t need many testers (Adam said \"about 20 volunteer testers\" (even if \"this number may increase later\")).

                                          Regardless. Stats should be exported, and team creation enabled.

                                                    It came from the list. But I think I know, now that I think about it.

                                                    The first time I replied to the list I accidentally replied using my regular email address rather than my dedicated BOINC address. All my accounts are through gmail and they forward into one address. By default unless a message is sent specifically to one of my addresses (as opposed to a list) it will default to my main address. So at one point I replied to the list with an unregistered address and I guess somehow that address got put into the queue for an account.

                                                    That\'s my best guess.

                                                        Adam,

                                                        I sent an email to the list, but I\'m not sure if it actually got to anyone.


                                                        I just tried attaching a new host. It wouldn\'t take my email/password. Strange, but stranger things have happened. So I went to the project website on my other computer where I should have been logged in. I found that I wasn\'t. I tried logging into the site with my email/password and it told me no account existed for that email. Stranger yet. So I opened up my account_mishra.lpds.sztaki.hu_szdgr.xml file from a host that\'s currently attached and copied my account key and tried logging in with that. No go. It told me \"We have no account with the key \'xxxxxxx\'. \" (removed the key for the purposes of this post).

                                                        Any idea of what happened?

                                                          Adam,

                                                          I sent an email to the list, but I\'m not sure if it actually got to anyone.


                                                          I just tried attaching a new host. It wouldn\'t take my email/password. Strange, but stranger things have happened. So I went to the project website on my other computer where I should have been logged in. I found that I wasn\'t. I tried logging into the site with my email/password and it told me no account existed for that email. Stranger yet. So I opened up my account_mishra.lpds.sztaki.hu_szdgr.xml file from a host that\'s currently attached and copied my account key and tried logging in with that. No go. It told me \"We have no account with the key \'xxxxxxx\'. \" (removed the key for the purposes of this post).

                                                          Any idea of what happened?


                                                          Kathryn,

                                                          A couple of week ago, I tried to edit my account but couldn\'t sign-in either. After a few tries, I just \"wrote it off\" to site-maintenance and gave up. (But, I did get your e-mail to the list.)
