293 hours because it's prime.
Edit: just looked, think it was between 281 and 282 hours. 281 is prime too...
You received > 7,000 credits. Cool. Wonder why the first guy who finished it didn't get credits?


Just happy to have finished it without error.

Well Beyond, it has passed 252 Hours and is still running and still at 73.00%.
Care for another guess?

Conan

264 hours because 2+4=6 and 6+6=12 and 2x6=12 and 2x12x12-2x12=264. Figure out that reasoning... ;-)


Well that reasoning is pretty good but alas it is also out, as well as my 270 hours (with no reasoning).
It has now passed 277 hours but has moved to 83.5% so we have progress.

Maybe 200 hours?

Conan, looks like you're running this WU: WU=17810575
Judging from the speed of the one machine that completed it vs. your machine I'd say you're looking at around 10-11 days total for this WU. It should complete though if your computer doesn't do something untoward (such as reboot).

Beyond, yes that is the one.
It has passed 200 hours now still at 73% and last checkpoint was at 24 hours.
But still running and using a full core so we will see how it goes, must finish soon?

I'm guessing 240-264 hours. Let's start a pool... ;-)
I'll take 252 hours.


It is now at 232 hours, still at 73.00%,

I will have a go at 270 hours as my computers are not the quickest.

Well I guess then that my 141 hours and stuck at 73% for over 2 days, has a way to go.
Still taking up a full core so letting it run. Would be nice to get many, many thousands of credit for it (ha, ha).

Thanks for the update. 148368_Hs_TCGA-KLF6_wu-6_1543433660987 above finished this morning and validated. I'm aborting 148366_Hs_TCGA-BRCA2_wu-136_1543431411382 at 619 hours (still at 12%). I'd bet this has to be a record run time for a WU:

This did cause a small issue for me when BOINC thought that the new work units would only take 29 minutes but they actually run for 3 hours (they used to run for up to 6 hours (hyper-threading is on)).
So I had well over 100 wu download, still have 50 odd to go but should make it.

Yes I can't really see what the problem is. I also am the founder of a team and very often I join a project before they get round to doing the BOINC team import thing, if they do at all.
So I often just make the team when I make my account as I want my output to all go to my team.
It is quick and easy to do.
I don't wait for the team import, it may or may not happen.
If I want to contribute toa project I don't wait around for the team import before I contribute.

G'Day Valterc,

Just wondering if you have found some time to work on the Badge system yet?

Keep up the good work on a very well run project.

I was thinking about this and it seems that the dots might just add an extra level of complexity to the creation of the badge.

For example with 3 dot system,
get Bronze badge at 10,000 with no dots
at 25,000 retain Bronze badge but add a red dot
at 50,000 retain Bronze badge retain red dot add another red dot
at 75,000 retain Bronze badge retain 2 red dots, add another red dot

That is 4 levels of Bronze and the code to go with it.
This is then repeated for Silver, Gold an upwards, creating lots of levels.

I was thinking that it would be easier to not use the dots at all (which will reduce the badge size) and just have one extra level for each badge but change the clour ot the DNA strand instead of adding dots.

So Bronze gained at 10,000 with the red DNA strand.
At 50,000 change the DNA strand to white (for example)

Silver gained at 100,000 with the red DNA strand
At 250,000 change the DNA strand white

Gold gained at 500,000 with the red DNA
At 750,000 change the DNA strand to White

Amethyst gained at 1,000,000 with the red DNA
At 2,500,000 change the DNA strand to white

Sapphire gained at 5,000,000 with the red DNA
At 7,500,000 change the DNA strand to white

Emerald gained at 10,000,000 with the red DNA
At 15,000,000 change the DNA strand to white.

This is my suggestion and the colours can be changed around so they are easy to see.

Just another possibility.
