Projects come. Projects go.

You want stability, stick with the big projects like SETI and Einstein.

Does it suck with the admins go seemingly incognito. Yeah, but that's life.

Projects come. Projects go.

It's been like that for 20 years and it'll be like that 20 years from now still.

It's a crap shoot. Even SETI or Einstein could be dead any day. No funding, the admins die, the labs catch fire, your project admins tell the owners STFU, someone decides to operate a backhoe in the middle of the night to steal copper and truncates the fiber optic line going up the hill....

My laptop, their droids, your blade servers... they could all be sitting idle one morning with timeout timers filling the screen... and what can we do about it? Nothing. It's all volunteer computing. All the time and resources we invest could be for naught and it won't matter who has the bigger pe...err, server or what not.

The only thing that lasts is the community which is a dynamic thing. We can learn from it, or we can go calling each other out which doesn't do a thing except annoy the crap out of everyone else.

I agree, it sucks when admins seemingly or actually disappear. Sometimes the disappearance is justified and sometimes who knows. Even if the projects were run by robots, we'd probably still be ranting where the humans to fix the robots that we wanted so there was always a response available. ;)

That's my two cents worth of thoughts... take it, leave it, ignore it... *shrug*

Relax. Have a cup of coffee. Your life needs a little reassessing for getting stressed for no work/communications of a DC project for 2 days.

There's aplenty of projects to keep you filled...

First cup of coffee is on me...

Changing the nature of a project without any warning or notice: Not Cool.

Everybody is going to get screwed up now that the WUs are not NCI.

Interestingly, if you pause Goofy and then start back up, they run just fine like they are NCI.

Have you considered just kicking the server? It worked for Chief O'Brien in Star Trek DS9... You've tried everything else... 😁

Posted 16 Feb 2017 by Yavanius

1. Not at all tasks - request of new tasks - receiving only one task (usually v1)

Is it possible to introduce a small delay before sending out work when a WU reports in. IIRC, one of the monkeys (2?) runs a little longer than the others. This might allow the others to catch up in that time and report in, then at that time the server might send all the monkeys. My thought is that if you manually update after getting only a v1 and get the other v's, the delay might work out the same way...

I hadn't checked for the other Monkeys, but I wonder if that's related to that sometimes you only get 1 or 2 Monkeys and you have to manually update to fill in the other(s).

Also noticing since the last 'crash' that I'm often seeing Communications Deferred with a timer when I check clients. Most of the time, Manual Update clears that out and gets work.

Just a humble suggestion here. Maybe talk to the WUProp admin? Him having the only other NCI app (sofar as I know) out there...

Posted 11 Feb 2017 by Yavanius
Pretty much all applications are out of work, v1, v2, v3, v4.

Is it all in preparation for v1 L7 app?

The monkeys have gone being on strike to full on riot... not only do we have rotting banana peels and feces, we got division by zero now!

SOMEBODY just had to go talking openly about the L7 project and now we got mass monkey hysteria...

The riot gear is stored over there, you guys that JUST HAD TO go blabbing about it in the open, you go in there and get things settled down.

The server is a problem, something went wrong

Tasks in progress (by version) - 26k / 24k / 24k / 180k / 0

Version 4 is increased rapidly

Yep, v4 been out some hours now. I think they are on strike... it involves a lot of rotten banana peels and's pretty ugly actually.

It's a top secret prototype monkey...

Well, the nice thing about that one and this one was that it just runs in the background with minimal impact to anything.

There's no rush for these things and you could do it for other public domain books... English, Polish, or otherwise. :)

Hey, just for fun, do it in reverse...

OVH send me mail that there is to much connection to my server and they restart it in rescue mode :(
Now I restart it in standard mode and turn on project.

Poor monkeys... poor, poor monkeys...

Do we need to upgrade the habitat for the monkeys? Expand it out, put more things to swing on, maybe a little waterfall...? Are there enough females monkeys... male monkeys + female monkeys = more monkeys to pound out Shakespeare in Polish...
15) Message boards : Number crunching : Equalizing the Monkeys (Message 1401)
Posted 5 Feb 2017 by Yavanius
I notice that some of my monkey groups are getting larger than the others. Is there a way to be to set it up we can choose what groups to get work for, yet to avoid an imbalance that if the global results for any one group get out of a certain percentage of the others that we'll still get the WUs for that group(s) regardless of what we set?

e.g. Some projects have multiple work areas you can choose from to work on and there is a switch to get other work if the preferred area runs out of work. So, either have the switch always globally on or I don't know if there is another way to do in the way the server hands out work...

Okay, now I think there's too much coffee flowing because every other time I hit a link I'm getting sqli warning / Database Error.

Site was down earlier this morning too.

I want to say it was at least a year they owned all things Moto... I was among those excited expecting we'd get OS updates sooner. Nyet...

Then they sold all the hardware to Lenovo...

Lenovo gonna end up like Cisco acquiring all these shiny things in sight...

The reason that you have that error it's maybe Motorola don't fix it in their updates :(

Actually, it's Google owned... no wait... it's Lenovo now. But it still says Motorola at the website. Maybe that's all too much for your monkeys...
