Hi Everyone!

Sorry for a lot of silence on our end -- things have been quite hectic this summer! I accepted a new position and now am at Rochester Institute of Technology and busily getting a new lab set up (and having some students migrate along with me).

I'm going to let some of the work units clear out of the system and set up some new runs which should help fix some of the issues you've been seeing with bad workunits. In the longer term, I've started work on an updated binary which should also allow for the use of GPUs, which should hopefully allow the runs to scale a bit better without running into these problems.

I'll be keeping you posted as that comes along, but right now we're all just trying to get settled in a new place! Thanks again for all your support. The results coming in are definitely interesting ones!

I don't see anything wrong the the tasks. [b]JUST BAD HOSTS!!! [/b]Please ban them. So, so many bad hosts. Easily at least every other task seems to have an error on it from some 'Anonymous' user that we all know is Gridcoin.

Are the tasks currently in progress going to be uploaded? Right now they are just stuck and it seems like they are just going to be abandoned based off your comment.

It would be nice to get work from all three subprojects again.

Thank you for update Travis, I wish you a good luck at your new lab!!

One suggestion. Banning bad hosts is one way, but I want to increase "max # of total tasks" for each workunit to about 10. Then however many bad results come, a correct result will come before 10 and the workunit will be validated later instead of being trashed. Other projects like Amicable numbers do it and they can handle with error results without banning. Fortunately this server seems to have a good internet bandwidth, so no ban is necessary.

Just my thought.

Best regards,

-Tetsuji
