Saw I did a work unit of something new.  Time to get another badge :specool:

 

Quote:

Dear Volunteers,

After months of preparation, I'm pleased to announce the launch of Smash Childhood Cancer .

This new project builds on our work during the Help Fight Childhood Cancer project, which identified several chemical compounds that could potentially be made into new treatments for neuroblastoma, a common childhood cancer. Now, we are expanding our team and our goals to search for new treatments for a number of types of childhood cancer.

Volunteers like you make this work possible. We are excited to be working with World Community Grid once more, and invite you to recruit your family and friends to join us as we seek to Smash Childhood Cancer.

Thank you,

Dr. Akira Nakagawara

not getting any work...

bfromcolo 01-28-2017 06:53 AM

I have a 1/2 dozen of them now.  Maybe check your project preferences?  The site says there were 8000+ results returned yesterday, but I don't see where I can get current server status.

Gotta love WCG!

And I just got 5 years in MCM. Guess I'll have another 5 year to get.

WhiteWulfe 01-28-2017 09:56 PM

I got something like two dozen of them... Definitely can't complain about that.

The icon for the badge is kind of cute too, it's a HAMMER! tongue.gif

WhiteWulfe 01-29-2017 12:56 PM

Double posting because I just noticed this show up in my WUProp logs.... Apparently there's some [email protected] - Vina work being sent out to android devices ^_^

emoga 02-25-2017 03:01 PM



Not sure if this is an error or not but it looks like I'll be crunching it soon.

Knowing WCG it will probably be delayed by a month or two or ten...

This has been in the mix for the last month.  I have my silver badge in it, should hit gold in a few days.  I guess if that 26% is project completion percentage is accurate, they only have a few months to go unless they release additional work.  But it seems like that number has been bouncing around some. Hopefully they add more work.

I have my emerald badge already. I will be throwing some more CPU cycles at this thumb.gif

I wonder how well Ryzen will perform for BOINC applications... I wouldn't mind adding 16 more well performing threads to my farm.

WhiteWulfe 02-26-2017 08:56 AM

I almost have my bronze badge in it... Joys of my main WCG work being a Samsung Galaxy S3, as the 4770k is split across 7 or 8 projects so doesn't run WCG as much.

EDIT: I definitely have to agree though, reaaaaally hoping Ryzen will handle BOINC well, as I'm looking forward to upgrading from 6 threads of CPU stuff to 14 ^_^

BeerCan 02-26-2017 08:57 AM

I have been filling in this project due to the lack on tn-grid wu's. I am glad for WCG, they always seem to have available wu's.

emoga 03-10-2017 09:44 AM

wow I didn't realize how much faster this app is in linux than windows eek.gifdoh.gif

mmonnin 03-10-2017 02:44 PM

All the VINA based apps are much faster in Linux.

k4m1k4z3 03-17-2017 11:26 AM

Finally got my sapphire badge for this project, now on to diamond sonic.gif

WhiteWulfe 03-17-2017 12:02 PM

I finally got my bronze >. >;;;

Finrond 03-17-2017 12:08 PM

I got some badges too!


mmonnin 03-17-2017 12:29 PM

Only a Ruby for me in SCC. Wish I could get more HSTB to finally get a badge. Just shy of 11 days.

I was surprised to see a 1/2 dozen HSTB tasks had gone through over night after a long hiatus, maybe a sign of things to come?  Ruby in SCC for me as well.

I don't even have a day of work for Help Stop TB yet O_o Would be nice to get a few more without having to resort to setting WCG to pull only that particular type. It's the only type (beyond beta) that I don't have a badge for yet - clean energy project I don't count because of just how rare those work units are.

If you dont have any of the projects unchecked, you can simply un-check all of them except TB, and check "If there is no work available for the project(s) I have selected above, please send me work from another project."

This will make it so that any time you try to get a unit, it tries first to get a TB unit, then falls back to all the regular priories if none were available. thumb.gif

I might have done something like this to get my badge whistle.gif

Hmm, I'll have to keep that in mind then.

mmonnin 03-19-2017 07:45 AM

I'm guessing you'd get mostly MCM and Zika that way. MCM is at at 99% so it should be about done.

As of late, it's been mostly MCM, with a side of SCC, Zika, and [email protected] Pretty much the same for my android devices, minus MCM.

I get tasks by setting one 'filler' project to 0 then put WCG with Help Stop TB at 100 resource. Boinc Project Manager then begs for tasks. Might take a day or two to build up but it works.

Do you get any extra work besides HSTB? Setting a project to be backup only gets work when needed.

Nope, or I'd get flooded with Zika tasks wink.gif

Well we know who has all the HSTB tasks!

mmonnin 03-19-2017 04:34 PM

Yeah. I set it to HSTB only during the day today and haven't gotten any.

mmonnin 04-14-2017 02:41 AM

SCC has about a week left. Then a pause and hopefully more work.

WhiteWulfe 04-14-2017 06:04 AM

Awwwww, a pause means that Android will be back down to just two tasks it can run.

mmonnin 04-17-2017 01:14 PM

A user on WCG forums reported they got work from other apps indicating the well has run dry. I guess a few more will be sent out as resends. We'll have to wait for the pause to get more.

mmonnin 04-20-2017 07:57 PM

And its back for a bit.

Yay, glad to hear more work is available again. Only 20 days (give or take) away from getting gold on SCC, so it would be nice to get at least that far with it (as well as 2500 hours in WUProp) ^_^

k4m1k4z3 04-21-2017 02:12 PM

Cool, maybe I still have a chance to hit diamond biggrin.gif

k4m1k4z3 07-13-2017 02:46 PM

WCG SCC has more work available thumb.gif

WhiteWulfe 07-13-2017 04:48 PM

Sweet, here's hoping my phones get a few of them in the near future ^_^
