[wildlife] EXACT app credit update 2 Nové okno
Both SETI@Home and Atlas@Home are on the very LOW end of the credits spectrum. If you want to maintain users interest and participation, then these examples should be avoided. Both are very long term projects with huge user bases.

It seems to me that the Credits should reflect the work actually done rather than the cpu time. That way when GPU apps are developed, the work they do can be reflected in corresponding credits.

There are also bonuses given by a few projects for various reasons and you were right to give one for a project restart with unproven work. Some projects give bonuses for "long run" work that has WU's that takes many days on an average CPU.

If you are planning to cut the credits to be more in line with other BOINC projects I would suggest caution in cutting more than 50% unless you are fairly certain that you have a LONG TERM need and the necessary number of users to make a substantial base to do the required computing power.
Cutting credits to only 10% of current WILL result in loss of interest and active users, even among those who say they "crunch for science".

Just my opinion.

Draining the CMS job queue Nové okno
Because of an upgrade to the WMAgent server, we need to drain the CMS job queue. So, I'm not submitting any more batches at present and we should start running out over the weekend. If you see that you are not getting any CMS jobs (not tasks...) please set No New Jobs or stop BOINC.
I expect that the intervention will take place Monday morning, and hopefully we'll have new jobs again later that day.

Minor planet named Bernard Nové okno
A minor planet in the Solar System will officially be known as Bernardbowen from today after Australian citizen science project theSkyNet won a competition to name the celestial body.

The minor planet was named by the International Centre for Radio Astronomy Research (ICRAR) in honour of their founding chairman Dr Bernard Bowen.

Bernardbowen sits in the asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter and takes 3.26 Earth years to orbit the Sun.

The minor planet was discovered on October 28, 1991, and until now has been known as (6196) 1991 UO4.

Based at ICRAR, theSkyNet has been running since 2011 and sees citizen scientists donating their spare computing power to help Australian astronomers uncover the mysteries of the Universe.

Its 50,000-odd volunteers entered an International Astronomical Union (IAU) contest to name planets beyond our Solar System.

Project founders ICRAR also won the right to name a minor planet within our Solar System.
Bernardbowen was one of 17 minor planets to be christened today.

Other newly named minor planets include Kagura, after a traditional Shinto theatrical dance, and Mehdia, which is equivalent to the Arabic word for gift.

Dr Bowen is renowned as one of the country’s finest science administrators and has presided over scientific advances ranging from the oceans to the skies. He was instrumental in the establishment of ICRAR in 2009, and helped bring part of the Square Kilometre Array telescope to Western Australia.

A full list of the citation of the minor planets can be found at the IAU Minor Planet Circular.
Bernardbowen can be found on the Minor Planet Centre site, including an interactive showing its position in the Solar System.

Ethereum wallet testing Nové okno
In next few days we will start testing cryptocoins transfers to your wallets.
For those who will join to tests under "other account info" is new field with option to put wallet address to make transfers from us.

To get DrugDiscover "dummy" (at the moment) tokens you need in your wallet ad "Watch token" contract and put in this address:

0xA2319E6E734E47976b80530941a19bA3EA5CdA4b


In next few days we will transfer some those tokens to your account to check how fast and reliable is this way.

Also, we consider few options to make it:
"On demand" transfer - where you can make it when you like and receive whole collected tokens in one, bulk transfer.
"After batch" transfer - where we do transfer after finish each work units batch (and checking results).
"Daily, Weekly or Monthly" in this case we will make batch transfer to all users on set period of time.

We will be happy to get feedback from you with information what way will best for you, or if you have other ideas.

Sourcefinder Beta - Attempt 2 Nové okno
Hi Everyone,

Earlier today we were having some issues with the hard disk size of the sourcefinder server. While I was attempting to increase the disk size, I accidentally terminated the amazon instance causing the server to be destroyed.

After a large amount of facepalming and re-installing, the server is back up with a larger hard disk at the following address: http://54.196.169.236/duchamp/.

Unfortunately all of the forum posts have been deleted along with the server, and there may be a few latent setup issues that I haven't addressed quite yet.

Before accidentally destroying everything, I did copy off some of the bug reports that people had already made in to a Trello board. This board will store all of the current issues that I'm investigating, so you can all keep track of what I'm doing. https://trello.com/b/Y3XkcXMJ/sourcefinder-public. Once I've read a bug report on the forums, I'll update that board with the relevant details and get to work on fixing it.

I also plan on posting a weekly changelog of everything I've managed to fix so far.

I'm uploading a 30GB packet of work units to the server for everyone to work on. I'll get them sent the moment I can.

I'm truly sorry about all of this, and I hope everyone will still be happy enough to participate in sourcefinder.

[wildlife] EXACT v0.17 for windows xp Nové okno
From a recent computer magazine report, there is close to 10% of computers still have XP on them, beating Windows 8.1 at 8% and Windows 8.0 at 2.45%. Win 10 has just over 19% and Win 7 has 49% with Linux trailing at 2%.

So Win XP is very much still out there and being used.
I suspect the Linux users are higher placed than this but it may not be the primary OS that people use.

Notice that XP is about equal to both Win 8.0 and Win 8.1 combined, people just did not like Win 8 at all.

I think XP came about in the year 2002 or there about.

The less said about your President, the better.

First Scientific Results of DENIS in the Biophysical Society 61st Annual Meeting Nové okno
Dear volunteers,
Next week, I will attend the 61st Annual Meeting of the Biophysical Society in New Orleans. During the conference I will present a modification of one of the currents of our model (the calcium current). This current was modified to solve some problems of the model. We decided to modify this current thanks to the results obtained in DENIS, so we can say that this is the first scientific result in cardiac electrophysiology obtained thanks to your collaboration. Thank you very much!

You computed the exploratory study to locate the part of the model that was causing the problem. Thanks to your collaboration we were able to find it and propose a solution.

We continue to work to make our heart cell model as realistic as possible, we hope we can continue to give you great news like this in which your effort is rewarded enriching science.

Thank you very much for being by our side and helping us in this and in future works.

Sincerely,
Jesús.
