Hi fellows! The GPUGRID team wishes you are having (or had) good summer vacations! For September we are planning to release some changes in the web layout. Among others, extended statistic data will be provided so you can follow the progress of your contribution more closely. We are still under development and we are open to any suggestions to make improve your experience as users. Specifically, we would be happy to hear which statistical data you find the most relevant or interesting and therefore susceptible of being displayed as graphs. We thank you for your collaboration!

- Wildlife@Home: traveling this weekend
28.08.2014 02:14 Uhr
I’ll be traveling this weekend (my flight leaves tomorrow night and I get back monday night) and I’ll be without much any internet service on my trip. So if I don’t respond too quickly that’s why! Expect more updates when I get back next week.
- Moo! Wrapper: Server moving
27.08.2014 07:28 Uhr
I’m migrating our primary server to a new host that has a newer OS and more modern hardware. It’s also closer to our DB server so any delays between the servers should be minimized. To top this all off, it’s also cheaper.
As things are changing there might be one or more disruptions on services but I’ll keep an eye on things and don’t expect any loss of work as soon as dust settles. No action is needed on your part unless you are hard coding our server IP address somewhere like your firewall rules. In which case you should prepare to change the address and think about using name (moowrap.net) instead of hard coding an IP.
I’ll let you know when I’m done. Thank you and happy crunching with a snappier server!
- Wildlife@Home: [wildlife] updating the project's pages
24.08.2014 21:13 Uhr
I’ll be going through and updating all the Wildlife@Home webpages so they look like DNA@Home and SubsetSum@Home today. Let me know how they look! The front page is done so I have to work on the other ones.

- Wildlife@Home: [subset_sum] updates to home page
23.08.2014 21:40 Uhr
I’ve updated the front page of SubsetSum@home to be more in line with DNA@Home and the rest of the citizen science grid. I’m going to start working on updating the SubsetSum@Home application this weekend and hopefully we’ll see some new work units next week.
- Wildlife@Home: [dna] front page updates, science post
23.08.2014 20:46 Uhr
I’ve updated the front page of DNA@Home, fixing the carousel, as well as adding some more information and imagery. I’ve also put together things I’ve gotten from Dr. Archana Dhasarathy over in UND’s med school (who is a collaborator on the project) going over some of the science behind what we’ll be doing with the new work units. We’ll be updating this over the next few days, so stay tuned, and let us know if you have any questions.
- Wildlife@Home: [dna] looks like the assimilator is working
23.08.2014 03:47 Uhr
Looks like the assimilator is working. I’m running it manually for the time being just to keep double checking things, but at the very least work should be flowing out more steadily. I’m going to do a few more tests with these smaller batches of work units, but after I’m sure things are working the way they should be, I’ll put out some longer running work units in larger batches. I should have an interesting data set from the biologists who are looking for human protein binding sites to determine what genes they regulate, related to the SNAI1 and SLUG transcription factor (which may play a role in cancer development).
- Wildlife@Home: [dna] assimilator workunits botched
22.08.2014 22:09 Uhr
Feel free to cancel them. It looks like they won’t validate as I forgot to pass a couple command line arguments which means they’ll run but end up with different results and not validate. If your work unit’s name looks anything like: gibbs_test_run_11_102__156513_XXXXXX_0 where the XXXXXX is greater than 0, it probably will not validate. Sorry about this! Anything from gibbs_test_run_12 and above should also not have this problem.
- Wildlife@Home: [dna] testing workunits generated by assimilator
22.08.2014 20:26 Uhr
I’ve been generating work units with the assimilator for testing purposes. please let me know how they’re crunching. I’ll be letting them out in small batches so I can make sure everything is working okay.
- Wildlife@Home: [dna] status update
22.08.2014 04:37 Uhr
Just a status update so everyone knows whats going on. I made quite a bit of progress on the dna@home assimilator today. It’s almost to the point where it will be automatically generating work units. I’ll be testing that tomorrow, so hopefully they’ll start being a more steady stream of work. Although I’m sure there will be a few kinks to work out with the automatic work unit generation.

Several people and organizations have completed many factorizations, all important. The most welcome one from Paul Leyland’s point of view, though, has to be that of 2,951-.C290 which has been the Most Wanted Number for over ten years. It was the last virgin (i.e. no known prime factors) in the base 2 tables. The factorization into p63 * p227 was found by yoyo@home on the 16th.

- PrimeGrid: PPS-Sieve ATI apps and GFN MAC ATI apps turned back on.
19.08.2014 15:39 Uhr
A little late on the announcement, but we’ve fixed and corrected two apps that had to be taken offline earlier this year. The ATI/AMD version of the PPS-Sieve app was put back online a couple of days ago. More details can be found in this thread. The GFN (short and WR) ATI/AMD Mac apps were put back into service last month. More details can be found here. We are very grateful for the volunteer developers, builders, and testers who put so much effort into fixing those apps. Thanks!

- Moo! Wrapper: Server updates
16.08.2014 16:39 Uhr
I’ve just finished updating BOINC Server code to the latest available. This brought us about one year worth of fixes and changes from upstream developers. There’s better support for communicating with latest BOINC Client versions interesting new CPU list at http://moowrap.net/cpu_list.php in addition to the previously available GPU list at http://moowrap.net/gpu_list.php.
Additionally, earlier our domain was moved to a new registrar and DNS service provider. We also finally have a non-expired certificate in use. And with the code update the protected pages actually work correctly now. Previously they might have refused to load style sheets and other such resources.
As always, please report any new/existing problems and I’ll take a look. Thanks and happy crunching!

- Wildlife@Home: team credit updated
14.08.2014 06:04 Uhr
I’ve updated the team credit, and teams now have columns in the database for the subproject credit as well. When a new user links to an account on DNA@Home or SSS@Home, it will also add that credit to the team. On to updating the top lists!
- Wildlife@Home: [dna] validator up and going
14.08.2014 03:10 Uhr
Looks like I have the validator up and going. It should have made a pass through all the DNA@Home work units. I’ll be running it manually for awhile to make sure everything is working correctly. New credits should show up on your user, team and host, however I still need to update the team credit to account for the linked accounts. I’ll be working on this, as well as updates to the top list pages (to account for the sub projects) and hopefully will get the assimilator working tonight or tomorrow.
