06:21 <ebo> anyone have an idea what might be causing this?

18:50 <Rookie_69> Hi, Jay.

18:56 <efc> still looking for a place to live. Decided to tell the apartment to take a hike.

19:03 <Rookie_69> Get your credit straightened out and buy a house... Stop paying someone else's mortgage...

19:04 <Rookie_69> Don't end up like me.

19:24 <Rookie_69> BBIAB.

20:38 <efc> Had the cash for a long time ago. Got fed up with the one-sided lease and their sloppines and bad attitude of the manager.

20:41 <efc> Land around work is so boring. Very flat. Too high population density.

23:40 <ebo> how often do the results get transfered?

23:41 <efc> mine on s@h, every day or so

23:42 <ebo> I have have a message that I have processed 16 tasks, but looking at the transfers nothing has been transfered.  Is there some way to force the transfers to take place?

23:42 <PovAddict> do you see them as "Uploading" or "Ready to report" or what in the Tasks tab?

23:43 <efc> Force an "Update"

23:48 <ebo> Earlier today I used "no new tasks".  I then hit "update" there is a message that it reported 16 completed tasks and no new requests. But the statistics show 0.0 completed.

23:48 <PovAddict> oh that

23:48 <PovAddict> well, you'll see credits in statistics when:

23:49 <PovAddict> - other people (one or two) running those same workunits finish them and report them too

23:49 <PovAddict> - the server gets around to validating them

23:49 <PovAddict> - and your client contacts the server to get the shiny new amount of credits

23:51 <ebo> ahh... ok.  what surprised me was that it did not show the transfers.  I had problmes a year ago where 1/2 of all the results were never counted.  We neved did figure out what happened.

23:51 <PovAddict> if the server is working properly, transfers won't be visible for very long :)

23:52 <ebo> but dropping those were consistent.  I'll let it run for a few days and see if it runs reasonably.

23:52 <ebo> Thanks for the info regarding transfer messages being temporary.

23:54 <PovAddict> the Transfers tab will only show things if a download/upload is currently in progress, or pending

23:54 <PovAddict> and transfers are only pending if BOINC is busy transferring something else (it won't start 100 transfers at once! :P) or if the server is down and it's waiting a while to try again

23:55 <PovAddict> or, well... if you disabled network access, or your internet connection is down :P

23:55 <ebo> thanks for the info.

23:55 <PovAddict> no problem

23:56 <PovAddict> now I'll drag myself to bed and pass out ->

23:56 <ebo> The thing that started me on this is that the climatepredition project has tasks with a deadline of two weeks in the past and I thought it was going to throw stuff away.

23:56 <ebo> PovAddict: sleep well.

23:56 <PovAddict> in the past? wtf :P

23:57 <ebo> oh wail.... that is 50 weeks in the future -- next year!  Sorry guys, my bad...

23:57 <ebo> s/wail/wait/  but the wail works too ;-)

23:58 <PovAddict> climateprediction used to be special in that it had long tasks, longer deadlines, and a grace period so it'd still accept tasks past deadline anyway

23:58 <ebo> PovAddict, I think I probably should go back to bed too ;-)

23:58 <PovAddict> nowadays they still do that, but it's not so special :)

23:59 <ebo> I would love to look at the sourceode for the climatepredicion, but I think the hadley model is still closed source -- I do multiscale ecologicical modeling BTW.

23:59 <PovAddict> other projects have long tasks too, cpdn has tasks that aren't so long (plus computers got faster), and the official server supports deadline grace period (if project enables it)

23:59 <ebo> cool.
