1) Questions and Answers : Web site : Work Units Names and Highest Steps (Message 473)
Posted 6 Jun 2018 by mmonnin
Post:
Hi, I would like to ask how the work units names are generated, because to me they seem completely random.
I would also like to ask if the section in the account page telling you your highest steps is ever coming back since I saw that the site has completely changed.

Thank you in advance.


That's the point. Someone cheated by using task names to cheat the system.

Thanks for the help. I have tried this config file and while I can see no real sign of increased performance, nothing has crashed yet either.


DId you tell boinc manager to re-read the config files to pick up the changes?

I don't think a missing VS.net would prevent tasks from downloading anyway. They may abort if its required and missing though.

Just wondering who the user that was cheating. These workunits take some time to process.


It was someone in a gridcoin pool.

The admin upgraded the BOINC server/forums when the project was halted to stop the cheating from a user. Guess the old threads got wiped with it too. Internet archives still has a version from Oct.

Today I received 16 WUs for the CPU, unfortunately they are not calculated.
Anyone have a suggestion where I should look.


https://www.visualstudio.com/downloads/

Download the "Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio 2017" (near the bottom of the web page). Since BOINC may send you 32-bit as well as 64-bit apps, install both the x86 and the x64 version.


The OP here manually aborted wafers.

Is this missing package the reason for the errors in this thread?

The project is showing up as 'collatz' vs 'Collatz Conjecture' to WUProp so I tried running it on CPU as well and got this

drop the s on the https and the rest is okay, he hasn't done the security yet.


Huh? I couldn't get tasks unless I reattached to the new URL.

I didn't think that comment had even posted since I had an Error when submitted and the time since last post hadn't updated either.

Edit: Error happened again with a double post. I only clicked once.
