The move of the QCN project from Stanford to Caltech seems to have gone smoothly. Thanks to all involved at Stanford Earth Sciences and Caltech GPS for making this transition possible. There may be kinks to iron out over the next few days; but the project seems to be back up and running. You do not have to do anything on your BOINC account - as the QCN addresses/URLs are being forwarded automatically from Stanford to Caltech.

Great news thx :)


+1 :)

As the project seems to continue, will you correct the credit loss from the end of May?
The project totals lost 7,000,000 credits. I'm only missing 7,669 credits, but I'd like to get the correct amount back!

There's nobody working on the project any more other than sysadmin work (ie to keep the servers running). If anything it was probably a credit "inflation" which was corrected when I fixed the database. As I've said elsewhere - consider this project effectively "closed" as far as boinc credits etc -- it's just collecting sensor data until someone resurrects the project (ie new grants etc).

Well, sitting here a few blocks from the Hayward Fault, with an ISP that promises they've got emergency power, and a UPS on the router and the computer with the quake sensor -- I hope someone will get that grant promptly after the Hayward starts trying to shake us off this side of California.

I figure the system will -- if really lucky -- hold up a few minutes, long enough to collect something interesting after the main shock.

Someone should pre-draft that grant application -- "Whereas the great Hayward-to-Portland Earthquake of 2016 was widely instrumented, and ...." -- and have it ready to go.

did you restore from a backup to this machine? the problem is on the BOINC side ie BOINC thinks you have another computer with the same (supposedly unique) computer ID. So as soon as you get a workunit BOINC marks it as "invalid" as it thinks it's a rogue computer (I guess). I'm not sure what to do about it, it's outside my experience.

That's odd - there was a 'min_sendwork_interval' setting of 7200 which I just took out a second ago. It was supposed to keep faulty hosts from requesting work over and over. I think I have a daily limit of 3 workunits anyway, so I took off this setting. I don't know why boinc is so fanatical about computers having a different "CPID" (it's just used for stats sites), but it seems there is some conflict with that and min_sendwork_interval somehow.
