Hello!
I am writing this post to summarize a little the news that we have had over the last month. As we have already commented on the forums, we detected a problem with the checkpoint files that caused many windows tasks to end with an invalid result. After several tests and several attempts we have managed to detect where the problem was and solve it. Due to this, we have implemented some of the improvements that we had planned for the checkpoint file. We have made it more robust. We have kept it as beta for quite a few days and it seems that the problem is fixed. We will continue to analyze how the program works, but the percentage of errors that we receive is more than reasonable in a project of these characteristics.

A special thanks to all of you who have been giving us feedback and helping us find the problem.

Today we have re-launched simulations in the NHuVe project. These tasks are no longer beta. We will inform you of the status of that project as we receive results. In the coming weeks we also plan to add tasks to the HuVeMOp project. With both projects working we hope to have a fairly stable flow of tasks.

On the other hand, we have been working on expanding the number of platforms and we have added in beta mode an application for ARM64 on linux (e.g. RaspberryPi), and ARM for Apple (for new Apple chips). We want to see how well they work. If all goes well, in the short term we could also consider expanding to Android.

All the best,
Jesus.

==========================================

Hola!
Os escribo este post para resumir un poco las novedades que hemos tenido a lo largo del último mes. Como ya hemos comentado por los foros, detectamos un problema con los ficheros de checkpoint que hacía que muchas tareas de windows terminaran con un resultado invalido. Después de varias pruebas y varios intentos hemos conseguido detectar dónde estaba el problema y solucionarlo. Debido a esto, hemos adelantado algunas de las mejoras que teníamos pensadas para el fichero de checkpoint y hemos aprovechado para hacerlo más robusto. Hemos mantenido la versión beta durante bastantes días y parece que el problema está solucionado. Seguiremos analizando cómo funciona el programa, pero el porcentaje de errores que recibimos es más que razonable en un proyecto de estas características.

Un agradecimiento especial a todos aquellos que nos habéis estado dando feedback y ayudando en la búsqueda del problema.

Gracias a esto, hoy hemos vuelto a lanzar simulaciones en el proyecto NHuVe. Estas tareas ya no son beta. Os iremos informando del estado de ese proyecto según vayamos recibiendo resultados. En las próximas semanas planeamos también añadir tareas al proyecto HuVeMOp. Con ambos proyectos en marcha esperamos tener un flujo bastante estable de tareas.

Por otro lado, hemos estado trabajando en ampliar el número de plataformas del proyecto y vamos a poner en modo beta una aplicación para ARM64 sobre linux (e.g. RaspberryPi), y ARM para Apple (para los nuevos chips de Apple). Queremos ver qué tal funcionan. Si todo va bien, en un corto plazo nos podríamos plantear también ampliar a Android.

Un saludo,
Jesús.

Hi Jesús,

Thanks for the news, i can confirm so far it's working nicely on my ARM machines.

Just out of curiosity, with all three projects, do you have an estimation for how long will you have supply of tasks ?

Jesús,

When you have a chance, could you make an article explaining the different works you are studying and the approaches? As time passes, you can just update that article or reference other articles on how those studies/approaches how worked out... The Good, The Bad, & The Ugly. ;)

Thank You. :)

Hi mogurakun,
No, at this point we have no estimation. We know that we have work for several months, we will get a better aproximation as the project progresses.

In some ARM machines is not working well, we have updated the app to test an small modification.

Best,
Jesús.

Hi Yavanius,
This is a greate idea. We plan to write short articles on both what we are doing and the basics of our field so that it is better understood.

With the new course (in Spain it starts in mid-September), we will plan it.

Best,
Jesús.

I thank you for keeping us updated and we appreciate your active engagement. With things constantly changing it's hard to put everything together to understand the different things you are studying and the methods.

It also be a chronicle of DENIS@home journeys. In 2022, after a long absence DENIS@home relaunched. The first things we began to study were... we discovered that y performed better than x in chronicling abc. We further refined... etc, etc.

Very best,

Yav

Have you thought about creating a screensaver of some kind. Doesn't have to be elaborate, but maybe some kind of simple simulation? Take for example the World Community Grid screensavers. They aren't elaborate, but show a type of simulation of what is being studied.
