Either the website server stats are VERY wrong (524192 available tasks) about new app., or I have a different problem, because I can't seem to download any tasks on all 4 of my Windows 10 machines. "Run Test Apps" - checked, "Use NVidia GPU" - checked. Messages in BOINC client -

Ideas?

how often are the "Top" badges (you know - gold, silver, bronze) updated. Seems a bit of a mess right now. And i know back in July there was mention of static badges mentioned; haven't heard anything about those since.

Current batch of WUs trying to download, but nothing ever shows up on the transfer page, and shortly after that the status becomes "Download failed". (So nothing ever start to execute - not a driver issue). Is there some permissions on the server that's not able to access the download information? ('cause I don't want the problem to be with my machine :) )

I'm sure this answer is somewhere in the message boards, but, well, i'm old and can't find it. Will there EVER be any more work for Singlechunk population seed cactus stacking? (I need about 40 hours to get my bronze badge at WUProp :) )

If you're in the middle of reconfiguring, I'm getting these messages when attempting to get work:

8/2/2020 12:41:42 PM | | can't parse file_ref in result: unexpected XML tag or syntax
8/2/2020 12:41:42 PM | minecrafthome | [error] Can't parse task in scheduler reply: unexpected XML tag or syntax
8/2/2020 12:41:42 PM | minecrafthome | [error] No close tag in scheduler reply

Hope that provides some information you need :)

What happens to all of those WUs pending validation? With the server cancelling WUs en masse, will we be losing a ton of credit?

Just a note - I hope you are keeping separate totals (per user) for each application type. That will allow for different badges (which you SAID you were going to implement :) ) per application. Pardon me if you've already considered this aspect of credit accumulation. (After all, it's not like I have some ulterior motive :) )

I agree that chip can use the above code as an example to disable these things. I already have hide signatures on because of the signatures some people have that are massive and way bigger than what they write into messages on the forums.
I also don't see in its documentation any mention of an option to disable these things.

Party pooper :)

Hey Mikey! I see we've both cut back on our crunching a bit.

I'll just start off with a random comment on badging levels: i kind of like the 1,2,5 progression. It looks like it's fairly easy to get to 50K here, so I'd start there and go up according to the progression. Just to start the conversation :)

User profiles may be enabled, but I can't get mine to successfully be created. Keep getting "Your ReCaptcha response was not correct. Please try again.", even though i get a checkmark before i click the submit button. Also getting some anomalous errors concerning a profile picture, which i'm not submitting. Have tried creating profile in two different browsers (FireFox, Edge).

Well, of course someone's got to bring this up. :) (And I know the project is just getting off the ground. This is sort of tongue-in-cheek)

Thank you, Jord. Figures that's what it was. Thought about trying that after seeing the message in the log, but I like "talking" to people, so... :)
