Ahoy Cap'n,
Just successfully finished me first of the scroll 5.05 wus and it went to get an even newer 5.06 but all I got was this attached series of download failure error messages. And now I can't get any more 'cause I've reached the daily quota. Hope the messages mean something to you.

Seems as if the file deleter has cleaned out files before they were no longer needed, including the exemplar from which they are all repecated. I've created a new one of those and shut down the file deleter for a bit to see how well this now version works.

I was playing a little bit with the keys too, rotated the text etc... (the book is pretty hungry, still calling !FEED ME!)

Then, because of the Pirate Talk day, I took an allowance to make a pirate joke and started to read the book backwards and successfully finished the reading in fast two minutes! (Rewarded by nearly a quarter of a gold dubloon, but I could not expect more for such shameless joking, possibly some punishment).

BTW the displayed GMT time is correct now, taking my DST offset into account! [edit:]Capt'n, you're taking the words from my mouth![/edit]
But the next line still claims scroll 5.05 instead of 5.06.

Correctly set. 2 hours difference from my local time, which is correct.

Fix seemed to work, As I downloaded a new Wu fine. Also speed up/down worked fine as well as the left right adj. Also noticed that on the screen saver text, 5.05 is still listed as the scroll. Also noticed that if left on speed 11 and then switching back to IE, occasionally the speed dropped back to the regular speed, And the text also was missing initially, ANd then zoomed from back to front as was mentioned on an earlier post. Including the stars too.

*Edit-Finished in 29:23 with graphics screen opened, And on 11 . :)

...started to read the book backwards and successfully finished the reading in fast two minutes!

When the scroll app is preempted with another project, the graphics thread is still running, sure immediately screaming !FEED ME!, the thext goes in short time away. In this mode, the speed can be varied between 0 and 1 bounds and it cycles... (I am not able to confirm this later).

When reading backwards, the percentage off course goes backwards (in BoincView too). The back-speed can vary between 0 and -5. If the app gets preempted, I can still read backward (but for how long, maybe minus one chapter?) Then the text disappears, but progress still goes backwards.

Is my observation correct, that the progress really increments (until the stored text is over) although the scroll app is preempted?

is there any way to get the WUs to compleat corectly when BOINC is installed as aservice other than sitting here and manually opening the graphic? I can run BOINC as a screen saver, but that will only get one of the WUs, and i run 2 at once...

Been waiting for a set of 5.06 to finish to confirm the current bug I've been testing. Same behavior as 5.05, on a multi cpu system (HT or multiple cores) the last result will go pre-empted at 100% (sometimes 99.6) and the graphic will just keep racking up percentage completed. I'm going to let this last one just keep going and see if it starts running again when the due date arrives.

Both systems I've verified this behavior on are Win XP. One Intel P4 and one Dual Opteron 270HE.

yes!

You need to change how the service is running...
in Win XP, open Adminitrative Tools -> Services. Find and open (double click) the BOINC service.
In the LogON tab, change it from log on as "This Account" to "Local System Account". Enable the checkbox "Allow service to interact with desktop".

Stop / Start the BOINC service.

You can use use application graphics, screen savers etc.

Re 5.06
GMT time is being displayed and taking DST into account. My time displayed is currently one hour beind my system clock.

scrolling: I can spped up, slow down and rotate the text.. no isses that I can see... the %done does slow down and speed up with the text speed but I dont know if that is wrong or right!
If I reverse the text, the %done drops... I have not reversed past 0!


yarrr!

After viewing graphics, my %done seemed to stall at about 10%.

I went to view graphics again and it then jumped straight to 20%

also, the graphic window is now just stars... ala "starfield simulation" windows screen saver! No more text!

Paul.

Edit - is anyone else seing the progress stop if / when the graphics window is closed or minimised?

I am getting buckets of these messages in sterr.txt

I have not tried this yet myself. My concern is that now you are letting BOINC have access to your system uner the Local System Account, which could be dangerous. Especially with this project.

So is it possible to create a separate account just to run the service, and to grant to that account the privledge of interacting with the desktop? Then you can view application graphics, screen saver, etc, but BOINC cannot do other bad things (one hopes).

Windows XP does not appear to allow that...

You can set BOINC up to start under any account you want, but the only one that has the 'interact with disktop' bit is the local system account.

If you start BOINC under a user account (even one with admin rights) you cannot view graphics. Even if u log in with the account that BOINC is started under it doesnt allow it.... or at least I cant get it to work!

Paul

I had a 5.05 running as a service with the local systems accout setup to view graphics (I have to run a password protected, 3 miute minimum idle time engaged screensaver for data security reasons). This ran fine while I was active on the machine, but after I left from work the screen went into 'blank screen' mode and the workunit crashed with the -129 error. I think that, because I do multiple projects on this machine, it crashed when trying to switch back during the 'blank screen' period. Seems like it may not be a good idea to run these units if a service install of BOINC is doing multiple projects (might also be relevant for dual cores, etc. that can't allow two instance of the app to be viewed at the same time)??

Scott, what version of BOINC are you running? It was my understanding that bug was fixed in the later version.

Also, to all those who say that setting to local account w/ desktop interaction works, IT DOES NOT!!! I have it set like that and they will still fail if I am not logged in and do not manually engage the graphic!!! Also, the screensaver will only kick on if someone is logged in, so that is of no use if no one is logged in either. (Sorry, this is rather frustrating not being able to get this to work on any of my 40 comps at work.) My quota on all but the two comps that I have at home is now 1 per day.

I does work - i use it myself!

However, graphics will only display if you either
- select Show Graphics in BOINC Manager
or
- turn on the BOINC screen saver **

At the log on prompt you can do neither.

** Screen saver must actually be running when te pirates app does - its no good if you are using the computer at the time or the 'go to blank' timer has expired by the time the pirates result starts.


This is the only app ever (that I know of) that requires graphics. Remember, one of Pirates goals is to test the BOINC graphics. This is just part of one of those tests. I am not sure what the point of the the test / feature is but I am sure someone can explain it!

With the restrictions in mind, I dont imagine any projects would turn on this 'graphics required' feature if it was available to them.... the graphics are just a little bonus for the users. The science of any of the projects are not dependant on the graphics. I suppose a project could potentially require user interaction and abort the unit if the person is not logged in but that would have limited appeal to alot of BOINC users I wager.

Anyhoo, at the moment, machines sitting at the login prompt cant view graphics so maybe you can suspend pirates for the duration of this test... I know that is not much of a solution but at least it would allow yor CPU time to go elsewhere.


cheers,

Paul.

Capt'n,
At 3 hours 51 minutes and 37 seconds this work unit aborted. All other BOINC programs were in suspension at the time so that they would not interupt this unit. Is this an anticipated result for scroll 5.06? I looked thru the other messages and did not notice one with the reason that this one ended.

EDIT This is the 3rd wu that has run over 3 hours and all have failed. I had another one fail for the same reason (9/19/2006 6:01:39 PM|Pirates@Home|Aborting result wu_1158699624_21_0: exceeded disk limit: 16002938.000000 > 16000000.000000) and the other was exit code 129.

Aye, this is the only app I know of where the graphics are required to finish, or where the progress is set by the graphics thread rather than the science thread. And hopefully there will never be another, as it's clearly a pathological case.

Just to be clear, while it's true that this app was used to test graphics back when it was first written, the current mission of Pirates@Home is not graphics development. I just pulled out the old code to clean it up and document it, and to use it for the special occasion. Now we'll lock it away again. I think it's useful for developers to see how it works, but more an example of what not to do.

I'm just glad we got a chance to go sailing again, if only for the holiday.

It was a fun experience and really shows the users who are willing to micro-manage BOINC to the point of obsession.

It would be better if the image could be scaled to match the line-spacing of the text. The original ‘stripes’ would have matched the printer’s line-feed, making it easier to read tabular data, but where the type straddles a stripe its legibility is greatly reduced.

listing of some stuff for demonstrating this

First line gets a bit cut off, and it's not that good readable.

Usually it's better readable on Pirates when combining (code) with (pre).
Seems like (code)(pre)(size=-n) pre-formatted code snippet (/size)(/pre)(/code) could be THE combination for displaying some code snippets.
