We'll run out of Galaxies over the weekend.

Next week we'll:


  • load new data using Pan-STARRS and SDSS
  • start using the stellar libraries with the 2003 version of the Bruzual & Charlot models
  • release the new Android code
  • switch to the latest wrapper code

Thanks for news. So we should have loaded more work units because of outage?

Hopefully this means I will be able to attach to POGS after the lollipop update.

Hopefully no exclusive vm-apps - they would only run on a few systems that are strong enough (actual os(!) and enough memory).
Because for the wide-enabled systems is (was?) one of the strengths of pogs.

And if you have a pc that has the OS and spare resources to run a vm that option should be ignored even if being able to run a vm has value for POGS? It would be another of the wide range of systems options for POGS.

Oh, and it looks like the weekend might be comimg sooner, I'm running out of work and I see there is only one job in the queue.

I have a new Raspberrypi 2 which I would like to use on this project. From your post I see that there is a new wrapper. If possible can you include use of linux on the arm processors in your new release. If not where can I get the new wrapper code or binary so I can continue to run as anonymous platform. Thanks

Yeah, I haven't been able to get work since the middle of this, now past week. First noticed it getting home from work Tuesday or Wednesday, when I got home, and my tasks had run dry. Hopefully next week, we'll see work again, but until then not much to do but crunch elsewhere...

tbh, and my understanding is, that Android OS is based off of the Linux kernel. There is no doubt some differences to what you're looking for, as one distro of Linux can differ from another, and what is built on top of the kernel can also very. But if there is someone who can work on the code, it probably shouldn't be too difficult to work from there. It might mean getting one's hands on another piece of hardware, to QA test the code against.

Hey Sarge,

Unfortunately we are having to wait for data from the telescopes. There has been a slight delay. I keep being told tomorrow so I guess the real answer is you'll know as soon as we get them.

Is there any way you can send a message via BOINC so we can know we are "still waiting for data" and not "ol bagarap"?

Although Android is based on the Linux kernel several of the kernel components and modules were changed to work better with mobile devices and their displays.
This results in changes to the high level programming languages making code for the Android o/s different to that normally used with either Linux or Windows.
To run programs using Linux or windows on an ARM processor it is probably far easier to use the code for x86 processors and compile it using an ARM based computer.
There may be some errors due to code differences but far less than with Android code.
I have previously run my model B RaspberryPi using binaries compiled by Daniel Carrion and hope that someone will provide binaries for the new program and possibly have support included on the servers.
