It probably be more useful hitting the active forums devoted to BOINC out there and letting folks know. Lot of folks still don't know DENIS is still back up. I've posted a couple of times at BOINCStats.

It is listed on the BOINC projects page.

All out of love (WUs)...

I turned work fetch off hoping WCG was going to have some work going today, but alas no and I burned through my cache. Ah well, I'll run some TN-Grid.

Notice DENIS (project and website) was mostly down last night in late evening out here California. Thought maybe the server was overloaded. All seems to be functional again this morning.

One thing of note: I have a bot at home that hits' "Update" on my BOINC machines every 7 minutes. Sometimes the BOINC or project backoffs are excessively long.



Why are you hitting the servers every 7 minutes??

Obviously some projects not liking that is a sign that's a little excessive. ;) I'd think every 15 or 20 minutes should suffice if you really need to continuously hit them.

Good Morning.

So, I know it's early, but your current and beta models, have you noticed any differences (good and/or bad) over your original model?

Do you anticipate the volunteers needing to run the original model for comparison purposes?

Just for the future...

if you ever get to a working Android client (and there's folks that would be willing to help test beta clients), it's possible to gather some new interest in the project through the various Android news/resource sites.

I'm sure there's folks around here that would be happy to help you compile a list of sites at that time.


Cheers,

Looks okay for me... I went to my account (via my name) and then to my team from there.

Is that what you are doing?

Assuming you can continue to receive funding, do you have an idea of how long DENIS models will run? Or does the nature of the project allow to be open-ended, that is, is there a finite set of parameters or is there an endless amount of models that can be run?

Jesús,

Can you simplify the differences (layman terms) the difference between the new model and the previous model?

At a glance, it seems the newer model allows a greater range of options in your experiments than the previous model. it's a bit late, so the mind isn't quite grasping the difference between the models. :)

TIA,

Yav

Waiting for more consistent batch


Just looked at server status, there's several thousand WUs available. Maybe they released another round of work? I got 3 on my computer and see one has completed.

I didn't even know you had a holiday coming up. I was just realizing that July 7 is earlier for you than us in the west, you being in Spain. Sometimes we forget where the projects are. ^_^

Looks like WCG kind of beat you to having WUs again, although it was only a test run. I was hoping you'd come back soon so I could dedicate some time just to DENIS before WCG resumed fully.

Cheers,

Well, we would ask on the forum if the forum wasn't broken during that time. ;)

Looks like you managed to iron a few bugs out... although doesn't ruin the iron?

BTW, I was just thinking, is that July 7th in Spain that you will (hopefully) relaunch?

Cheers,

I'd like to suggest reaching out to various educational institutions and have them share DENIS@home with relevant study students. I don't know if BOINC forums are robust enough, but have discussions about the science on a more technical level than your average BOINCer.

They don't have to run BOINC to participate (they can do Science United if they just want to participate without the credit), but they will have to create an account to participate in the forum.

Are you gonna restart with BOINC/Science United first and then look to other avenues?

If so, do you have an anticipated date yet?

The reason I ask for Android is I got a number of retired devices that were crunching for Cancer on WCG (doing Universe and Einstein in the interim). Be nice to have another project to contribute to. The only other things available are math related which don't really interest me.


Vodafone Australia collaborates with Garvan Institute on the Dreamlab DC app for both Android and iPhone.

https://www.vodafone.com.au/foundation/dreamlab


Unfortunately, the only way to see what projects they are doing is to download the app. Also, the only tracking (last I checked) is on a per device basis.


Samsung does something too with a bunch of different causes you can contribute to, although I haven't checked it out and I'm not sure if it's actually actual distributed computing.


I don't know where else you could look too offhand. I haven't researched any other public DC sources in a whiles. Possibly some bitcoin type oriented research organizations. You'd have to see what kind of actual reach they got.
