Hello,

We have encountered some issues with the exportating of stats and so it will take longer than anticipated. We thank you all for your patience.
We will post a message here as soon as we are done.


Sincerely,

I see it's a blank field here, too.


The issue has been fixed and you should be able to see an username. Could you retry?

3) Message boards : Number crunching : New work (Message 126)
Posted 19 Jun 2019 by xRXT2toIGA
Post:
Hello,

While we cannot promise when new jobs will be available since it depends on the researchers submitting their jobs, we are always encouraging researchers to take advantage of BOINC@TACC

Furthermore, we are thankful that our users are very active and consistently run jobs once they are submitted. This may cause some users to not see available work if all the pending jobs are already being processed.
More information about available workunits and those in progress is available on the BOINC server status page (https://boinc.tacc.utexas.edu/server_status.php)

Sincerely,
BOINC@TACC development team

Good news,

we will be supporting the export of statistics for those who wish to do so with the new version of the BOINC@TACC website that will be rolled-out by the end of this month.

Thanks,

Hi,

We will not be supporting the cryptocurrency-based incentives for the BOINC@TACC volunteers. While we do not have a thorough understanding of the legal aspects of using crypto-currencies for the BOINC@TACC project, we do know that crypto-currencies are illegal in some countries.

Thanks,

BOINC stores some files about the job on your system so that, if any of it is required in the future, it requires a shorter download time.
Data files that BOINC considers "sticky" will remain in volunteer devices until no more jobs use them, after which they are deleted automatically.

Why are the BOINC Wide Teams not listed?

Unable to handle request
You must complete a task to create a team
It is even harder to get Tasks ATM.


More jobs in the pipeline, so the lack of task should not be an issue.

We have checked the certificate print options and both the drop-down and the user profile page links do not return any errors for the account specific certificate.
The cross-project certificate returns errors due to us not being affiliated with other BOINC projects for now.

Please change my Name to Dingo.

For consistency in record-keeping and compliance, we are following the process for name change as documented in the terms of the project: https://boinc.tacc.utexas.edu/terms.php . Unfortunately, we are unable to accept requests through the message board or private messaging. Thanks!
16) Message boards : Number crunching : Why Virtual Box? (Message 63)
Posted 11 Mar 2019 by xRXT2toIGA
Post:
Other projects use VB, cause checkpoint problems.
But here wus are very short so, why use virtual machine?
If it is a platform/code problem, you can use boinc wrapper...


We are running applications as Docker containers. Therefore, to provide an isolated execution environment for the application that works on diverse host systems, and to ensure the safety of the underlying host system, VirtualBox is required.
