Posted 24 Nov 2017 by Profile Coleslaw
I agree that RAC is too high compared to other projects. Typically, projects benchmark their workunits against the credit granted by a SETI@Home workunit.


Wait what? What projects have actually done that? SETI uses the Credit New credit system which is all over the place at most projects that try it. If a benchmark is set for comparison, the project admins typically do it based on the community as a whole. Not based on SETI. So, what they typically will do when setting theirs is either used fix credit per work unit or they will base it off of what a specific processor's performance is. SETI is also considered by the general community to under credit and would be a horrible idea as a basis.

I contacted Travis in advance as well to confirm and he said that he was notified.

Badges should now be showing up in the forums and top lists. They should also be exporting. Your total number of valid tweets will also be in your forum posts on the side along with everything else. Let me know if anything isn't working!


Can we also get them to show up under out team rosters. Some other projects do this. It lets us see what all or our teammates have in a simple location.

Rust is in the process of adding CSG to the DC-Vault

I think the challenge was a success. No major hiccups this time. I have recommended to Rusty to add the project to DC-Vault.

Everyone is invited to help break the servers. These dates were preferred by Travis.

Looks like a large bump in points. Some of my ARM devices are seeing almost a double in points. Some PC's are showing 50% or more increase thus far. Possibly more, but haven't looked too deep into it.

Work unit size seems pretty consistent, so don't see any problems with doing this so far.

Thanks for the heads up Travis.

Posted 2 Jun 2015 by Profile Coleslaw
Mine dropped 500K as I was over 1.2 Million. However, my ~700k is more accurate to where it should have been. My scores updated here accordingly. Just as others had mentioned, the sub project scores here did not reflect the DNA point inflation. So, perhaps that is where the confusion is?

I think the general consensus is to avoid Credit New at all costs. It really is a terrible system for scoring. If you could get DNA a consistent run time, then I would say go with fixed credit. But right now there appears to be different duration needs.

The challenge is a go. Looks to be a nice turn out.

A team challenge has been issued to stress test the new servers here for potentially being added to the DC-Vault. http://www.dc-vault.com

Please have your team founders sign your teams up to help us with this task. The challenge is for all sub projects.

The event will be from June 1st to June 8th.

So, I guess I should ask my question a bit different. Any plans to compile your own Android capable app for Subsetsum so the official client can be used? :)

Travis, are there also plans to release Android work units again too? Not trying to be pushy. Just wondering if it is on the list.


I don't think we ever had any Android applications for any of the projects here...

Good point. Those may have been custom by Mateusz Szpakowski when he released nativeBOINC and did the custom binaries using the app_info.xml

Thanks Travis. I will keep an eye on it. And I appreciate the good work.

I noticed I now have a bronze badge for DNA. However, I think something is screwy with how it is exported still because my sig shows me to have a badge for wildlife which I do not believe I have yet earned.

Also, is there a list somewhere of what all badges there will be and their levels?
