Hello,

I: WU availability:

Can the DrugDiscovery staff please check if there will be enough WUs available for the challenge time ?


II. BOINC users: please participate
- 1. tell your teamfounder to join the challenge on boincstats
- 2. the users just have to crunch the WUs in that time period. nothing more

Problem solved. Just server decides without our permission to send only ARM tasks...

It's because vina tasks are significantly shorter now and execution time are varies on same host for different tasks.

Err OK, if you say so but thats over a ten fold reduction in credit. Why? Without this new change everyone was still equal, so why change things when people were happy?

Because if we stay with 5pts/WU a i7 CPU will make even 100k points dayly (more then GPU on some projects)...

Can not get any smina for mol2 tasks, athough server status page says there are lot of them available. Also applications page says that they are only for Linux ARM. Is that true?
During last days I completed a lot of smina tasks for Linux x64 without any problems. Why did you change them to ARM only?

Yes, smina mol2 is temporary available only for ARM devices.
On x86 they will gone in two minutes from server and now we would like to got more results from Vina (they have different input, not applicable for smina).
