Hi,

My computer has been asking for work for 2 days now. I see under server status that CPDN is out of work. Bummer, resuming other projects. Will check back later this week.

Note that the work request was for GPU work - that\'s for a NVidia or ATI graphics card.


Are there projects that support ATI cards now??

Thanks,

It's pretty amazing (and sad) that searching the term "pending" doesn't bring that thread up. There was only one match when I searched this morning, and it was this thread:

Just opened this for the first time ever:

http://climateapps2.oucs.ox.ac.uk/cpdnboinc/pending.php

It lists my Pending Credit at over 200K - that's gotta be wrong, right? :)

That computer really has been turning in a lot of completed models and doing an impressive amount of work.


Thanks for noticing! :)

Unless you plan to run work from a CUDA project on that graphics card, stick with BOINC 6.2.19 for the time being. You\'ll see from the project News thread (top of the Number Crunching section) that this is what the CPDN moderators are advising for the time being.


I do use the GTX 260 to crunch on GPU Grid, so unfortunately I need to stick with 6.5.0 for the time being. The good news is that I downloaded another CPDN model today on that host. I\'m sure as I clear out some of the other work units it will grab more eventually and be running CPDN and GPU Grid 24/7.

Thanks for the advice mo.v.

This host was formerly attached using 5.x BOINC, but I recently upgraded to 6.4.5 after putting a GTX 260 into it. In the process, I also moved my BOINC data folder to another drive since I was running low on space. Unfortunately, when I copied my projects over, 6.4.5 did not recognize the old work so I lost the 4 CPDN models it was working on.

Since doing this, it (CPDN) has only allowed me to download 1 work unit. Am I correct in assuming this is due to the other 4 models being left in limbo? How can I get it to download 3 more?

Thanks for any advice.

So far as I can tell there is no way to contact anyone, anywhere,via email if I have a problem. ( wotht he experitment and model) but I am forced to post and hope a person with authority notices it. The contact support is a webring. impossoble to contact and impossible to leave.
If i wanted to mention my experiment wanted to stop workign, for example/ or if i kept getting a main servers are down call again later message for the first time in 5 years. ubless of course it\'s some sort of club that i wandered into and should never have been let into?


New to the internet? Tons of websites do this and it works fine. When I post a question, people here reply very quickly - not only mods, but also other people crunching the experiment.

5) So, has the founder updated his email address on his Account page? (It\'s an option near the top.)

I think the main problem is that the Team Founder made a new account. So changing his email address to the old address doesn\'t automatically make him TF.

He needs to log in with either the old account, or with the account key of that old account, before he can make any changes. Since he can\'t request the account key to be sent to him as the old email address is defunct, that\'s giving him the problem. Had he not made a new account, but just changed the email address on the old account, there wouldn\'t have been a problem.

So as the 3rd option he just has to wait another 3 weeks until the option to take over the team is given free to him.

Why 2 months? To give team founders time to react. What if someone is on vacation or in the hospital for some time? There\'s also a 3 month wait after which you can try again, if you get waved off by a TF or miss the window at which you can take over as TF.


Jord - can you change the link for us?

Here is what it says when I click the link:

Founder change has already been initiated by pmondo on 20 Apr 2007.

Thanks for your help Les,

So:
If you want someone to just go in and click \"approve\", prove, in a way that will \'stand up in a court of law\', that both the \'old\' and \'new\' person\'s that you mention are, indeed, one and the same.

PS
Why isn\'t the team founder posting here, either instead of, or as well?
This could be considered as suspicious.



I sent pmondo a link to this thread, hopefully he\'ll answer any questions you have to prove he is the founder.

As to why he\'s not the one posting this, I guess I\'m just slightly more proactive and spend more time hanging out on this forum.

Honestly, I could care less about who the founder is. I just would like someone to please fix the URL to our team website (see my original post) -- and this seems to be the only way to get it done. We\'ve been working on this for 7 months now...

Did the founder recieve an email?


No, he doesn\'t have that email address anymore.

If the team founder does not respond to your email challenge within 2 months time, then the team founder option will be given to the person who sent the email.


Grrrrr....

It\'s not my email challenge. The person who initiated the transfer/challenge (pmondo) *is* the original team founder, but he has long since changed email addresses so he has no way of getting in until his attempt to challenge himself is complete. He is trying to transfer it to his new address.

Why 2 months? That seems a little ridiculous to me. Old owner and new owner are the same person, can\'t someone just go in and click \"approve\" for us?

If the founder receives that mail, he\'ll know which address he used to create the team, and can use the procedure to retrieve the password.


Nice! I think someone else on my team is fixing this. Thanks guys, glad the project updated to include that feature for us.



Hmm, so it\'s been a month and nothing has happened. Can someone help us at the project level?

Just saw this link on our team page:

\"Request team founder transfer\"

Looks like our founder has initiated that, what is the next step? Thanks!

What I find a little odd is the change in the speed of the model recently, from 1.425s/ts to 1.53 at the most recent trickle, which is often a sign of PC instability (or, alternatively, that the model is running on a different PC to the one it started on).


Yes, I had to move the model from one PC to another when I lost a cruncher. That is why you see the change. Thanks Mike,

I will try the torture test.
