Testing of BOINC version of theSkyNet
« on: August 04, 2012, 12:27:05 AM »

I am one of the testers for theSkyNet in BOINC which is being conducted now.  There is no credit for the testing but I like being a Alpha Tester especially for this first Australian BOINC project. 

They do not have any vacancies for more testers during this Alpha stage but I will be sending out an email to the Team when it comes to "Volume Testing" of the project sometime in the future.

Cool can't wait.   :thumbsup:

Mmm, I may be getting ahead of myself a little (or maybe alot) "but" any chance of SkyNet GPU maybe? err one day?

Now that would be something I could really get my teeth into (what's left of em' ) dang sweet tooth.. ;D

It is very early days and they will just be trying to get the system to work first with CPU.  At the moment I have not had any validated, I have had a couple "Deleted by the server" It is minimum quorum   2
initial replication   3 for work units and only about 40 users so it is taking a while.  The work units currently run between 2 and 15 hours. 

EDIT While I was typing this I got three validated.  They have an average of 3.23 credits per hour, but the credits will not go anywhere.

Okay jumped onboard with this project, but wouldnt you know it, NRG decide to release a reasonable amount of Workunits, also having a bit of fun with the NFS challenge as well, so I got one workunit crunching at the moment.

AusTerror has jumped onboard with the NFS challenge as well as kingdad66, which is good to see.

Seti challenge is going well, albeit my pendings are increasing by the minute

After cleared out the workcache and the NFS challenge has finished will get a bit more crunching happening, till then

Happy Crunching

That's because my computer has hoovered up 20,000 galaxies like a gigantic black hole. biggrin

I guess an influx of new contributors has exhausted the work that was provided. It's a very new project so the admin possibly has to get used to not letting the hopper go dry with more contributors to feed. Or perhaps he wants to check the batch to see if everything is running correctly before releasing more. It's 1.25AM now in Perth, I noticed he posted on the forum last weekend in the afternoon, so hopefully there will be some work within the next day.

I was a little miffed myself after I cleared the decks a bit to go to town and then found there were no tasks left. Although I don't need many as they take 10-12 hours each on my computer. I've still got 11 tasks in my cache so am OK for a while. I completed 7 with no troubles, real smooth crunching and low memory usage. :thumbsup:

Even had one validated so I'm on the board. v:

Go, go theSkyNet POGS.:yahoo:

Most of the tasks I did in the beginning only granted 3 credits per hour so won't take long to overtake me.  Not much work around on the project, had a lot of new users and they must have gotten a lot of tasks.   Kevin, the Project Developer has been very good at answering messages on the Message board and should let us know when the next galaxies will be ready.
