Well, guess it's time for me to set up a citizen science grid account!

EDIT: Anything special that needs to be set up with this one?

EDIT2: And how do I get it to give me more than just 24 work units? I keep getting this annoying "This computer has reached a limit on tasks in progress" error.

EDIT3: I'm going to do the unthinkable and let a few work units push through. Hopefully this will give the manager the ability to fight back or something, as the manager is currently estimating 8.5 hours per work unit, despite the ones taht are being crunched right now looking like they'll only take about 2 hours, 3 minutes, and 20 seconds. Give or take a bit.

EDIT4: Ohhh, that's smooth on their end.... All the work units I downloaded an hour ago.... Expire two days before it starts.

Citizen Science Grid it is. Thanks for posting that.  I was away all day, so I missed the announcement. :D

The dreaded "too many tasks in progress" message.  I get this from time to time, and it is not necessarily because of the project that sends the message.  The BOINC Manager priority scheduling for tasks is still mostly voodoo, and can freak out at totally unexpected times. :p  If you have a large number of tasks in the queue for another project, that may be the reason why you can only get a few tasks.

 

I think that the SubsetSum tasks (which are the only tasks currently available) all have a 4 day deadline.  So if anyone is planning on stocking up on completed tasks, keep that in mind, and don't forget to upload them before the deadline. :thumb:

 

I  like this project as a Marathon project, because it will make it very difficult for the larger teams to store up a ton of work, and then drop it at the end of the Pentathlon.

I thought projects weren't eligible if they "can not provide a sufficient number of workunits." CSG is already out of work, and I remember the work flow being hit-and-miss last time I was running the project.

It is possible that CSG wasn't ready for the huge influx of users when the project was announced. Hopefully they have a mountain of tasks ready to release once the Pentathlon officially starts.
