Hi, despite running and completing tasks I have been receiving no credit. I am also not on the map despite my account telling me I am !

http://radioactiveathome.org/boinc/results.php?hostid=16366

I have reset, restarted pc, changed usb and as a last resort today I have removed and re-added the project as once again I had 2 tasks running simultaneously.

Erm, we appear to have had no server for about a week, the project was showing as offline on Boincstats, yet the first post to be put up is one asking for donations?!!!! Is there an issue we need to know about? Or even just a brief explanation. Are the bitcoins needed to fix the issues? It would be great to know.

wow, overwhelmed by all the replies!!!. I guess I am the only one running this type of processor and dual graphics set up then. I seem to be running ok at the moment after deleting the files from the program data folder and allowing a new master file download to happen..

Gary and ChertseyAl - famous last words but since I deleted the folder from the program data everything has been running smoothly. I assume from this that my initial download of R@H master files was in some way corrupt or became corrupted on 1st March (possibly from not reading the date jump from 28 Feb correctly). So it was a project software issue I think, not anything to so with the sensor itself.
I wonder if the change of clocks this weekend will also affect it?

Gary, yes I had seen Sean's task stderr files and noted he was also receiving no credits. He seemed to be getting some help from project admin TJM though.I saw something about the code written incorrectly! It is good that your struggle to get yours up and running has paid off by you being able to advise others of the possible issues.(You will be the Linux go-to man!)

Anyhow, many thanks for all the suggestions and helpful ideas. Have a great weekend both.

Well thank you for the reply, nice to know you are reading the posts here. Shame that you do not have anything to say about the actual issue of failing WU's. There are 45 posts on this thread and only one of them (the one about money) generates a reply!!!!!

Also, the project never was a commercial project.


I said it 'FEELS' like it as the only post that gets any attention is the one to order new kits. This project should be mindful of the fact that it's participants have paid money and spent time making the sensors in order to run your project. If someone is having problems running the project or issues with your WU's you would think that as project scientists, someone would be interested enough to try and look into it.

I think this is a worthwhile project to run and it would be a shame if it did not progress beyond it's current reach across the map because it has earned itself a bad reputation!!!

Ask people who run multiple BOINC projects and they will tell you there are good projects and poor projects, and the list of poor ones nearly always comes down to the fact that the participants cannot get any response from the Team running the project.

Well considering the server has been down for 8 hours today and there is no message from Szopler or Admin about it-


I am guessing it was to do with the eclipse, perhaps they shut it down to prevent false readings

Well considering the server has been down for 8 hours today and there is no message from Szopler or Admin about it- I have given up on this thread ever getting an answer from them. If they cannot interact and communicate about anything other than ordering and paying for kits then this feels like it is less of a project and more of a small business. I hope your new kit is straight forward for you to make.

I am so far,(whispers to Gary and ChertseyAl) still running ok. I hope today's outage doesn't set me back into the cycle of failing WU's. It does for now though seem that deleting the files from the projects folder in the Boinc program data file thus forcing a clean re-install seems to have cleared the issue. If I manage to run all weekend with no issues I reckon that it is fixed.

Watch this space guys.

ps - in an effort to boost numbers, I've just bought another kit off eBay which someone was selling because they didn't know how to build it.


That's a shame, there are probably a lot of people out there like me who cannot make the sensor themselves, if they have been waiting forever to get on the list then they may not realise it is not sent out whole any more.

I'll get that built and hopefully sell it on as a working unit in a week or so, so we can get another v2.61 user on the map! :-)


Good news for you though, will that be another linux? You will have to find another roundabout !!

wow you must have been at that for ages. Thanks. Well so far since I have managed 18 WU's in a row since deleting the project from the program files and then reinstalling it. It is too soon to know if it has been resolved or not.

There is a post somewhere mentioning the lack of connected sensors and possible reasons why. I think people possibly did not realise it was in kit form so have yet to make them, or are in the middle of making them still waiting for parts. Perhaps you were just super speedy with your soldering. :)
