Seems like a good place hopefully Szopler or krzyszp go there also.

Since BOINC@Poland is no more, where can we go to report that this site is down?

The source code for the project's detector is there in C/C++ so it's not a true reverse engineering project since you can see what the output format is. As you said this can be put on github for everyone.

Yes the lack of devices has since the beginning of this project been an issue. Middle of last year he was working on another batch.

I think the best would be to try and contact Krzysztof Piszczek, he is the owner and offer your services from software development perspective.

I can imagine the cheaper one would be fine, the more expensive one doesn't seem to have USB from a 30sec glance.

You'll need to work out how to hook in to the current app though, I guess it's hard coded to expect the same responses as "project" hardware.

This probably needs some work on your part.

Yes you need the sensor, you can build your own. The link to the drawing is on the homepage with the Firmware. The hard part seems to be getting the Geiger Tube.

I'm not sure how much time that Admins have to develop things.

It would be interesting with the fires around Chernobyl

Could you add the planclass nci for the windows executables too?

I'll try to get a powershell script with devcon. I've written the code to find the logfile, I just need to find out what I need to tell devcon to do once it errors out.

I need to wait for my sensor to disconect it's self, it's normally about 4-5 day's and I just manually moved it to a different port yesterday.

I can just create a scheduled task then to check the log file every so often.

In windows you can use Devcon to add/remove the device.

You could write a script to read the stderr file in the Radio slot, when the sensor loses communitcation it's logged in there. e.g.:

Radac $Rev: 407 $ starting...
error finding 'radioactiveathome.org GRS': Device communication error

It would be good if there was some easy way to recovered from problems.

I only normaly notice is my credit stops going up, my sensor isn't on my main computer so I don't check the %'s that much.

You must be very happy to see things expanding, its a great achievement.
