  • We've started processing some of the data, for Dataset 1, and hope to have some preliminary results to share later this week
  • Datasets 1 and 2 are continue crunching away, see the live status on https://www.mlcathome.org/
  • Dataset 3 is in internal testing, and will be even larger. Expect a more complete writeup of what these results are soon

  • You can now follow MLC@Home on Twitter: @MLCHome2

Let me know if I should post these to the client, or just leave them as forum posts. I'm being cautious to not spam the news section on clients.

Forum posts are fine with me. But I have never had an admin ask if he was giving us too much news before.
I will have to recover from it.

I personally love the current information policy and especially the flow of positive news as well. Would really love adding more computing power if I could!

Congrats on getting the project listed onto the official Boinc project list. Surely this will give you even more of a boost! Looking forward to detailed report of the prelim results that you are mentioning.

We were listed on the page Monday morning. At the time, if I recall, we had a little over 600 hosts. We now have over 1100. So nearly double in one week.

My understanding is that client side notices should be reserved for important messages. While your information is interesting and welcome, and surprising, it's nothing the average user needs to know. We can always come here for a bigger picture.
I'd like the news section to be read only. There's so many cases where a simple announcement started a thread that goes on for years and where people post anything vaguely related.

Ditto. More likely to get a deaf ear :-)
