So it looks like the zero credit for some wu\'s is still an issue?

It sure is, and how could I possibly get zero credit for this WU:

http://szdg.lpds.sztaki.hu/szdg/workunit.php?wuid=2322693

My result is listed as the canonical result on this WU and then is awarded zero credit. To top it off, 2 computers received 288.73 credits while 1 received 137.32. What in the heck is going on here?

Here\'s another one with success but no credit:

Yes the problem is ongoing!


The 0 credit problem is still unsolved:

http://szdg.lpds.sztaki.hu/szdg/workunit.php?wuid=2514204

My favorite still is getting 0 credit for the canonical result. That\'s a real classic:

I signed on to work on the number systems project, not on the physics project. I won\'t be doing any crunching for you until I have some choice in the matter.

I think a lot of people feel this way. It would help a little if at least the due dates on the physics WUs were the same as the search app. Right now the physics WUs keep preempting the search WUs, very irritating. The real answer of course is letting us choose the project we want to run.

Ok thanks...how can the project supervisors think people are going to help them if they act like this really...well that\'s not the first disappointing admin I come accross so I\'m getting used to it (ufluids\' admin is quite the same^^)

There are many projects that offer great support, but a few that don\'t. Apparently these guys don\'t care about attracting users. Maybe some day they\'ll wake up. Wouldn\'t hold your breath though...

Hi! I\'ve just noticed there were some physics apps on this project and I am interested in crunching them, but for the moment I\'ve only received about 15 maths workunits (which don\'t interest me as much I must say). Is there a possibility of choosing which type of workunit are sent to us? If not what is the probability of receiving physics one please?
Sorry if the question has already been aswered elsewhere on the forum.

Thanks,
La frite, French cruncher!

Some of the users asked to allow us to choose the type of WU to run but the \"powers (or lack thereof) that be\" decided not to bother. Big surprise. The answer to your question is: too often. I try to catch them before they start and abort them since they are long and not well optimized for AMD (another problem the admins don\'t care to bother with). In one of the Magyar threads they mentioned that they didn\'t care (yes there are translators out there). If you want support you\'ve come to the wrong project. If this wasn\'t in the Vault most of us wouldn\'t be running it. Maybe a wee bit sorry about the rant, but it\'s well deserved.

The AMD problem is under investigation and also I\'ll try to impinge on the management to upgrade the server to a WCG-like one, where you can choose which project to participate in.

Thanks much for working on both of these problems.
64-bit Windows is a problem, because we would need the Pro version of the Visual C++ compiler to compile on 64-bit. I\'ll try to compile with Mingw, which is free and theoretically can compile 64-bit binaries as well.

As I understand it all you have to do is allow the server to send the 32bit apps to 64bit clients. No re-compiling needed. That\'s exactly what most projects do.

Should you have any questions regarding the application, please post your questions here.

Yes - I have one question regarding these new UC-explorer WUs...
Why is Linux-OS so much slower than window$-OS (up to 12 times slower) ??
If you look at this WU (wuid=2328034) , you can see that I needed over 10 hours using Linux-OS, while my co-crunchers used Window$-OS and did the same WU in 50 minutes.
Sorry, but I can\'t run this project if this is going to be the normal behavior - It\'s clearly that my Linux-computers can do much better work elsewhere - I\'m out of here....until this matter is sorted out...

One problem is that you\'re running an AMD processor. The new application is horrible on AMDs (but it\'s true that the situation is MUCH worse with Linux), unlike the old application which ran very well on AMD. That\'s another reason to allow us to choose which application we would like to run. I\'ve also moved my machines elsewhere until there\'s a reasonable resolution.
