 Updates about the Team Clubhouse Email Article To a Friend View Printable Version 

A few changes have been made to bring things up to date. On teamstats, the "SETI" nav icon now points to BOINC-SETI. Those wishing to see the SETI Classic stats can still find them in the 'seti1' section. Accordingly, our Milestones will use the plain 'SETI' disignation again.

Rosetta had been missing from the teamstats nav bar, this is fixed.

D2OL finally got their stats sorted out for Phase 2. They didn't make any changes to their stats web pages, at least none that broke our stats. So our D2OL stats picked up on the changeover and are working again. We don't seem to have anyone crunching on this project, but since it's already up, I'll leave the section live. Assorted other teams do use our stats on this project.

The team news site was down for over a week during MacNN backend server migrations. Our DB got moved to a new server, and it took some time to sort it out.

 CURRENT TEAM STATUS Email Article To a Friend View Printable Version 

  • Einstein team climbs to #11. The Einstein team has made it up to #11 and is still outcrunching two other teams. Looks like they can make it to #9 with current production.     
  • Rosetta Team is holding at #21 and just holding on being threatened by the Clangers, but still have 3 teams ahead they can pass eventually.     
  • SETI Team is #21, and is currently outproducing 10 teams ahead of them. Only 3 of those teams will be passed in the next 90 days. Something to do with a superfast Mac SETI app......     
  • Predictor Team is still #1, but likely to be passed in about 150 days.     
  • Climate Prediction team is #17 but threatened to be passed by three teams in the next 90 days.     
  • Folding@Home is #49 and facing some serious threats.     
  • RC-5 is ranked #39 with both threats and opportunities.     
  • D2OL is #49 with neither any significant threats or opportunities. Sounds like they have some new folks on board who plan to bring life back to that party.

Super-optimized, auto-vectorized, gcc 4.0, Mac OS X 10.3.9 and 10.4 compatible, GUI drop-in friendly, fancy-pants, screaming-fast Boinc 4.44 Clients can be found on the Team resources page here:

 BOINC GUI's now available. Email Article To a Friend View Printable Version 

Macintosh BOINC GUI is now available as a Development version.
-- For those who haven't been paying close attention, there are now two BOINC GUI's for Macintosh. One is a simple menubar GUI that runs BOINC version 4.25 and the other is an Advanced GUI, version 4.35, that looks and works similar to the Windows GUI. (Actually it looks better). It also provides a screensaver and supports graphics on those BOINC projects that have Graphics. (Not all BOINC projects currently provide Graphics.) -- The Advanced GUI does have some bugs with "work estimation and completed percentage" but those will eventually be fixed.

So for those SETI and other DC participants who have been avoiding BOINC because of the terminal, now is the time to change. A user friendly GUI that installs just like any other application is now available for Mac users. Make the switch and crunch for Team MacNN.

NOTE: OS 10.3.x or greater is required..

 Boinc Beta 4.27 Clients Posted Email Article To a Friend View Printable Version 

reader50 has posted my latest optimized compiles of the Boinc 4.27 Beta clients on the team resource site.

Note that the benchmarking code has changed and so the clients will benchmark slower than existing ones.
They are not any slower, just the benchmarks are longer and more involved.

If you are daring, feel free to try out the new beta clients.

 Stats Maintenance Email Article To a Friend View Printable Version 

We've been doing some maintenance on the teamstats database over the last few days. This may go on for a couple days more, and it is maxing out the processing box. This is causing stats updates to lag on many teams.

Once the database maintenance is done, all the lagging teams will catch up. The maintenance is useful, we are clearing out redundant data that had swelled the DB from it's normal ~7 GB to over 13 GB. The specific teams being worked on will benefit from faster seek times afterwards.

 Einstein@Home goes public. Email Article To a Friend View Printable Version 

Feb 19, 2005
Einstein@Home was officially launched this morning at the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) meeting in Washington, DC, USA.


Einstein@home is a program that uses your computer's idle time to search for spinning neutron stars (also called pulsars) using data from the LIGO and GEO gravitational wave detectors. Einstein@home is a World Year of Physics 2005 project supported by the American Physical Society (APS) and by a number of international organizations.

This first production run of Einstein@home carries out a search for pulsars over the entire sky, using the most sensitive 600 hours of data from LIGO's third science run, S3. The purpose is to detect and analyze Gravitational waves that may support Einstein's "Theory of Relativity".
