What a pity. I normaly leave these machines unattended but by chance checked this one (before going away for 3 weeks too). It looks like it has been returning trickles once evry month or two.

With the planet below 42 from north to south I\'m not surprised. :-)

Here \'Tis: http://climateapps2.oucs.ox.ac.uk/cpdnboinc/result.php?resultid=7307095

I\'ll abort it now.

By any measure Aussie Assault 9 (AA9) on QMC has been a fantastic success!!

Even though AA9 is officially over, the team has just passed 10 million credits in QMC, the last 5 million all in the last 18 days. That is an enormous amount of science crunched.

The team\'s daily output should have started winding down to about double its pre-AA levels, about 50,000 a day, but we are still seeing around 250,000 a day. Not to bad for QMC.

It should start to drop in the next week or so but the project has caught the interest of many BOINC@AUSTRALIA members. That\'s another great side affect of the AA\'s.

The next event starts on 10 December 2007.

G\'Day Crunchers Everywhere!

Aussie Assault Number 9 is on the starting blocks and this time the target is QMC@Home.
The team will be concentrating a significant portion of their processing power on that project from October 1st for the following two weeks.


Aussies anywhere in the world - if you are teamless, come and join us! We have a great team website where you can get all the support (both moral and technical!) that you need. Just click on the team logo in my sig and
follow the links to the forum.

And of course, the invite is open to non-Aussies too!


The starting gun goes off at Midnight Sunday local time for all the team.

Aussie Assault 8 was hard work because SETI had problems but QMC has a good track record for reliability. Let\'s hope we have a good Assault this time!

This is plain and simple!

I want 3,000,000 climate project credits worth of new team members. Any climate project!

You don\'t have to have 3,000,000 credit to join us, no! 2,000,000 will do for a start, you can owe us the rest! :D

If you\'ve retired from all climate projects, if you\'re still crunching and would like to join an Australian team and anyone can. I beg of you, join us - please! Don\'t make me beg. Oh crap, I just did.

Help us defeat those on the Dark Side of BOINC, Phoenix Rising, and fight for all that is good and........ Heck, even I don\'t believe that and I\'m writing it :faint:

If you join, I\'ll stop posting! ;-)

Being passed by the same team three times must be some kind of record I think. But that\'s what I get for egging them on I suppose.

[vent_frustration] Yes Phoenix Rising managed to pass us, BOINC@Australia, by scoring a member from the ever resilient BOINC Synergy (don\'t their numbers look bad now) who took 2,682,168.64 climate credits to the team.

I wish they\'d joined us! Bet you wish they\'d joined yours though. ;)

So if you\'d like to help, please mark all donations to either B@A or BS.

I don\'t think we\'ll try and pass them back. It\'s getting to hard. [/vent_frustration]

I feel better now. Skulks out to buy a Core 2 Quad...

Posted 21 Feb 2007 by Profile m.mitch
The only way you could probably determine whether big crunchers are using hijacked machines would be if the servers were set up to save all the IP numbers, rather than each contact IP number overwriting the previous one. It would have to identify anomalous behaviour eg any member with computers in more than one country. So the software would have to include identifying the origin of the IP numbers. Like the banks that can identify anomalous spending patterns.


Using the BOINC members country may be problematic. As an example one of our members resides in China and works all over South East Asia.

It would look horribly suspicious to see an Australian returning results from that demographic. Although this scenario may be easily overcome.

In any case, legitimate users would be much easier to contact.

This thread can be used for discussion, reprobation and ridicule.


I like this part so much I had to add something. Well done to the CPDN project staff. I hope the other projects can do the same thing and maintain a sense of cross project uniformity.

We are looking for the following Australians.
rob baigent
Ian Hellyer

Thought I\'d seen the same thing so checked our team totals and they are way done for yesterday. Seems to happen every now and then. If it hasn\'t picked up in a day or two I may start to worry. Don\'t want all that work disappearing.

Mike and Spydermb, many thanks for your help on that. I just tried changing my user name to differentiate myself, but my stats just remained as Andrew Wood, so I changed it back to avoid causing confusion. I\'ts strange as there is only one Andrew Wood listed in the Participant profiles - me!. Could the other entries relate to my processing?


Andrew, It takes a couple of days for some changes to propogate across the stats boards. You\'ll also want to change it in each project for consistency and it helps the different stats sites.

It is almost a must to use the same e-mail address on each project and stats site. If you change teams, that\'s done at a project level so it needs to be done on all projects.

Mike,

Thanks, you were able to provide my userid. But, how?

Regards,
Steve \'UsedBits\'


Because I\'m flaming brilliant!

I also looked here http://www.boincstats.com/ and did a search by your User ID.

You also appear to be in two teams both called \"Knights who say Ni\". It may be a BOINC Stats thing but it could be worth having a chat with your team founder.

I tried attaching my stats to my signature, as you suggested, but I get the incorrect user info. I have gone to the BOINC stats link, but cannot find my user ID anywhere. Use of 19380 gives the stats for Nickmat (?)

Any help would be appreciated.


The 19380is your Climate UID: edit: You just beat me ;-)

You need to look up your UID from BOINC Stats or Mondayweb and use that one.
There are two Andrew Wood\'s:
This one


and this one.

Well, for me about 20 trickles got posted, but at this stage exactly zero credits. I think \"some\" is the operative term here. :-)

Mark


credits can take up to 24 hours to process from when a trickle is reported; also the server is a bit behind in processing the trickle data files (used in the plots), but it will catch up in a few days!


Thankyou MIW and thankyou Carl. Saves me a question. ;-)

UsedBits - here is where you find your user no.
It is 172125 for CPDN.

http://www.boincstats.com/search/result.php



Strange - wonder why that is??????


G\'day John, 172125 is his ID number for Climate, not for BOINC Stats, they issue their own so they can display the Combined Totals of all projects and not trip up over other project ID\'s.

Hope that makes sense, I\'m a bit tired, next door neighbour\'s woken me up with noise.

Hey,

Numb question!!! Easy solution I guess!!
How do I get to show my BOINC Stats in my signature? As you can see, all you have here is a www link....clearly not the way to do it!!
Lots of people have nice little graphics which depict their BOINC progress. How do you do this??

Neil.
