Hi,
just a heads-up that TN-Grid has been selected as a sprint project for the next 3 days.
http://formula-boinc.org/sprint.py?sprint=17&year=2017

Not sure if Formula Boinc admins routinely keep project admins informed about their project choices and schedule, so at least now you know. :-)
There seems to be a high rate of requests for work to your server now...

Thank you for the info, I didn't know about that. The way we produce work is rather complicated (computationally speaking), at the moment this is the maximum pace we can achieve.

Sorry I have now removed this post now.

BOINC message boards need a delete post button!

Hi Andy,

What do you mean?

Was that irony, in terms of the thousands of work units we just grabbed and processed?

Or do you mean that earlier we had no credit showing? (Either at TN-Grid or BOINCStats)

Chris

P.S. Good to meet someone from OverClockersUK..

Was just a joke as there was no work showing on the server and what there was was hard to get, BUT its been running fine over the last couple of days so congrats to the team here at TN-Grid.
Also hello to the other uk team :)

As far as I observed, work fetching was indeed limited by the pace of the work generator during the day before the actual start of the sprint and during maybe half a day after the start, due to sprint participants wanting to load up with work. Nevertheless I managed to use a large part of this period for actual crunching with a bit of checking back on my hosts.

But after that, there was a plentiful supply of work. Also, result uploads etc. worked without a hitch.

So, thanks to the TN-Grid team for AFAICT a well working project infrastructure.
