I switched my computer to master but the rest are still on www. Neither are really functional yet.

I think Stanford/BOINC put that message up because they were seeing the error on their end.
Yes, but we still wait for an official guide for the future address. I ignored it and got my unfair share of work and points. Our team came in first of the 425 teams that got and returned work yesterday and my newest addition came in with most points, 72k for CPU work and a bit for today as well. Not bad for around 160 jobs. I still have two jobs that I gave up uploading this morning. Others must have the same problem since I also have 15 in PV prison.

So this was a test and it will take some time to sort out the issues I suspect given the good time they spent getting this far. Happy crunching team :)

How do I change the url? I removed the project, then re-added it with the new url, and it still uses the old url. This is in Windows 10. It pretty quickly stops trying to connect
Don’t change it. You know that WCG has a forum, right? The question has been up at least 10 times the past days and finally the official word is - don’t do anything.

What bothers me most is that my status no longer says "communication deferred", so it looks like it'll not try again until I force it to update. Until a couple of days ago (last time I checked it), it was deferred for 3 hours, which seems more reasonable :)

@mstenholm Thanks for this information. I too was perplexed and couldn't change it. Methinks these kind of simple oversights might not bode well for the future???

I've changed it on a few rigs but I've been having a few jobs through here and there on a couple of the crunchers, I'll change it back tomorrow and see if I get any better of luck.... Finally got rid of the jobs from yesterday, but I don't think I had anything else through today on any of the rigs... I'll have a check :)

Have anyone else been getting many issues with any work they have been getting through??

It does that whenever there is a problem, and it additively grows the time for each deferral as to not overload the communication servers.

Have anyone else been getting many issues with any work they have been getting through??
AFAIK, didn't even get any work yet.

Now is the time to get jobs. NOW.

Edit: it lasted at least 20 minutes and I got +400. One machine was running some Rosetta jobs and I went to check and hit the update for WCG. That same machine only got 40 jobs but two others kept getting jobs long after I got the message. Strange, and maybe not since the settings are max 40, but the two others went past their settings. Well, it’s a cold summer so the 650W is OK.

Had a few jobs for my 5950X but my two 3900X's seem to have been rather empty, we'll see how things progress :)

How's everyone doing??

Well that was good timing. I dug out an older i-7 2600 system this morning and put in a new hard drive and loaded up Ubuntu Linux on it. Got boinc installed and was surprised to see it pick up a few WCG OPN1 work units. My other two machines also loaded up a batch of WCG as well. Sweet :toast:

I had a bunch running on one PC. I started BOINC on another PC, requested an update and got a bunch of jobs. They are all OPN jobs. At the very least this looks like a longer test of the system.

This time plenty are sent direct to pending verification, meaning when it’s returned a new job is being sent out, so stay alert and hit the update key.
The maximum points for a job have been lowered from 494.7 to 314.2.

My 5950X still gets job, 359 atm including the 32 already returned.

Just got 7 tasks on my i7 6700K. Not enough to fully utilise all 8 threads, but enough to give me hope :)

It's looking better now. I have enough work to keep my 3 crunchers running for a day or two. I'm just happy to see some activity finally!

All that I have received the past few hours are re-sends, but they do come. In the middle of this WCG bonanza Rosetta decided to grace me with 17 jobs before I politely asked them to stop :).

Only six team members got jobs from the start or near start of this batch according to Free-DC. Let’s hope that more will join for the next Free-DC update beside you @debs3759

Only 19 team members had that luck yesterday. Several people have noticed that their settings have been overruled but if you haven’t touched them since February you just were unlucky. I assume that you had a machine running from 3 PM to 6 UTC? Try again today and update often around that time window.

Been off the grid for a week. Re-started BOINC and it states it is downloading a bunch of work, but then sadly nothing. Weird. I don't have time tonight to mess with it or check the WCG forums. I was hoping for better news....
Oh well, I will just let it do its thing and see what happens.

Wrong week to pull the cable ;)

We had three batches on three days I think. All were very short, like 20-120 minutes. I was lucky on the first, missed the second and had one machine doing Rosetta so babysitting that machine on the last, yesterday. Snatched 611 jobs :D.

Ignore the annoying message to change URL for the project.

Same here on the only machine running. Well, I still have 6 hour work left but a little to hold me over the night would have been nice.

Just checked and now I have 11 MCM1 ready to crunch.

Edit:
And finally my 5950X got some Rosetta after I errored all out with a poor RAM OC. I think that it came on the naughty list because of that.
I got 12 but @Arjai got 79! Serious pie there :toast:
