[subset_sum] new batch of workunits being generated

More work should be flowing for subset sum now. Let me know if you have any issues!

[dna,subset_sum] more workunits

Sorry for the long delay here. This semester has been very insane for me -- too overloaded with teaching and other research projects!

DNA@Home should be generating more workunits now, and I hope to have more SubsetSum@Home workunits flowing tonight.

[subset_sum] more work

I've started up another batch of subset sum workunits. Let me know if you're having any problems with them.

[subset_sum] testing new workunits

I'm testing a small batch of workunits for subset sum@home, resending those that errored out so the progress pages can be updated. When these come in and are processed okay I'll let out another big batch.

[wildlife,climate,dna,subset_sum] spam user purge

We've had a large influx of spam profiles, so I had to go through and delete a massive amount of them. I deleted any profile that didn't have any credit, hadn't participated in the crowd sourcing pages on wildlife@home or climate tweets, and who hadn't made a forum post. I've also updated the site so that the minimum credit required to make a profile is 1.

I'm hoping I didn't delete any real people in the process. If your account was deleted please send me an email and I'll restore it - or you could just make a new one as it didn't have any credit or forum posts anyways.

[wildlife,climate,dna,subset_sum] update!

Just wanted to give everyone an update as things have been a bit quiet on my front. I moved into a new house over the last week or so, which has limited my time quite a bit (and my internet connection for awhile). We're almost all moved in now, so there should be a more movement from me this week. We have some new DNA@Home runs that we will be getting started - and I think I might have found/fixed a potential bug that was causing some of the errors in the DNA@Home workunits.

[subset_sum,climate,dna] more workunits and a status update

I've generated another batch of subset sum workunits. Let me know how they're working.

On another note, I'm off to Pittsburgh for a conference and will be back tuesday. I'm hoping tonight or tomorrow night I'll get the climate tweet validator doing things. We're also working on what our next batch of DNA@Home workunits are going to be - but that might be a little while as I need feedback from the biologists.

[dna,subset_sum] new workunits!

Hi Everyone,

Sorry for the lack of updates recently. Two back to back trips at the beginning of the semester made things a bit crazy. I've started up a new large batch of DNA@Home runs -- let me know how they're going.

I also have a a couple things I want to get working with SubsetSum@Home which I hope to have done this weekend before I send out the next batch of those workunits.

Now that things have finally calmed down a bit I should be more responsive and hopefully scratch off a lot of things on the to do list for all the projects!

thanks for your patience,
