YEPA !!!!!

edit : I have one ! I have one ! :)

What's the relation between "convolutional neural network trainer" and wildlife ?

I guess you will implement a breakpoint system later (?)

Yes, yes, I meant "once you have told it is ok", of course :)

Linking working, thanks for the support Travis.

I'll let Sebastien know about the export.

Indeed :)

Someone just told me about the "link" option and I found it was "forbidden" and then I came here and saw your post, thanks for the answer, I will wait for the fix.

Regarding the merger of projects, I translate here the explanation of Sebastien who is the developer and admin of one of the main Alliance Francophone own statistical website, http://statseb.boinc-af.org

He says

La situation est complexe. Au départ, on avait trois projets indépendants: DNA, SubsetSum et Wildlife.
L'admin a souhaité fusionné ces 3 projets en un seul: Citizen Grid. Malheureusement, la fusion est incomplète.
Il a d'abord repris les données du projet Wildlife pour créer le projet Citizen Grid, puis a laissé aux crunchers le soin de fusionner leurs comptes. Il y a un bug au niveau de la fusion puisque les comptes sont fusionnés sur Citizen Grid mais aussi sur Wildlife.
Actuellement, on se retrouve avec les stats de Wildlife faussées et les stats de Citizen Grid incomplètes.

Tant que l'admin ne fait pas d'export des stats par sous-projets, je ne peux rien faire. Je vais regarder pour restaurer les stats de Wildlife.

The situation is complex. Initially, there were three independent projects: DNA, SubsetSum and Wildlife.
The admin wished to merge these three projects into one: Citizen Grid. Unfortunately, the merger is incomplete.
He first took the data from Wildlife project to create the Citizen Grid project, and then asked the crunchers to merge their accounts. There is a bug in the merger because the accounts are merged on Citizen Grid but also on Wildlife.
Currently, we have wrong stats on Wildlife and incomplete stats on Citizen Grid.

As long as the admin does not export stats by sub-projects, I can do nothing. For the moment I will try to restore the stats of Wildlife.

Hope this helps, Sebastien is a great guy always willing to help and fix issues - and very effective at it !

If you need direct contact with him let me know.

I don't know where to post this on the "new" forum : I can see I have an account on CSG, based on my previous mail (the same for all 3 projects, like my account name which is also identical), however I can only see the credits of wildlife on the account page, nothing about my DNA or subset credits.

Also in the project preferences, only reference to DNA and wildlife applications, nothing about subset, is it normal ?

Hello... again.

Failed to open ../../projects/volunteer.cs.und.edu_wildlife/CH00_20120725_170657MN.mp4

after a veeeeeery long download of 400 or 500 MB each WU at 30 KB/s, they are failing immediately...

Well, there's no button to click and download BOINC or anything like that yet. I actually need to make a page with instructions for joining the project. People who are already using BOINC know they can just plug in http://volunteer.cs.und.edu/wildlife to connect, but for new BOINC users there's nothing letting them know how to do it. The workunits are still in a pretty alpha state anyways so that might not be a bad thing.

Yes a little square in the corner of the page, or an obvious link to a typical page like this one would simply do it.

Thanks for the answer, the WUs I have been crunching today are significantly longer indeed, that's better (if it means they do a "better work" of course, cause if it's just to make them longer...), or is the duration of the boinc WU simply proportional to the video length ?

I'm not sure to understand what you mean with "I don't have a official way to sign up on the front page yet", can't you write what you want on your home webpage ?

It's working now. But I think you should warn people wanting to help you in this boinc project that they are going to have WU as big as 900 MB and not longer than 30mn of calculation.

This is huge and unprecedented in the boinc world, regular boinc users are not used to this, and will not like it, especially when not warned.

For the moment I'm letting it go cause I want to help the testing and see that all goes well, but I will certainly lower (a lot) the priority after that.

I very recently attached to the project, pretty happy that there is a Mac app !

But all the WUs I got so far are failing :

Stderr output

process got signal 5

Referenced from: /Library/Application Support/BOINC Data/slots/9/../../projects/volunteer.cs.und.edu_wildlife/wildlife_0.04
Reason: image not found


I have an iMac :

Thanks for your help !
