Awesome thanks for joining the team!!!
I just checked on the kindle to see how this thing is running and it is giving me an error message? It says I don't have any device detected ? I pressed on the help button and it says I havnt accepted the google play terms....but I HAVE!!!
what do I do now? or is it just running in the background somewhere?? I'm not very tech savvy so I'm not sure how to fix it or if I even have to? Does it need to be on and running? Can it be in sleep mode so to speak? I barely use it but will keep it on if that's what I need to do?ughhhh sorry for the trouble...help would be appreciated
Unless you have sideloaded it, the Kindle doesn't come with Play. It is a fork of Android so may not be compatible.
That may be it. It's a Google Play app.
Also, WCGrid tweeted earlier today, World Community Grid Will be down From Jan 22 - 24 not downloading or sending any Work Units.
They are down for Fixing, sorta like this site is sometimes.
I think it is sideloaded on there...but maybe I can't access all the apps unless its rooted...which it is not...What's weird is that I thought I signed up ...and it was easy maybe I didn't wait to see the error message...or maybe it IS just down....I'll try to figure it out
What if you got BOINC from the Amazon App Store Thing? Amazon.com: BOINC: Appstore for Android
Ill give it a try
It may work. I will check the WCG forums and see what they say about Kindle devices
@sfbloodbrother, are you also-known-as Vishera?
You're kicking our butts!
I've just joined the team as well! I've been waiting for the AF team since it was mentioned in the F@H thread, can't wait to rack up those points now
And I'm gonna install it on my PC too, only problem being do I install it n my HDD or the SDD
Sweet! The new version of the Android BOINC client supports Ouya - I finally have a use for that turd!
Yes. But note i have 7 computers computing. 2 powerful desktops_!
It won't matter that much. I'd put it on ssd though just so ur HDD does not have to be used as much.
That's great news!
Nice! Running 4 projects. I forgot. What processor does the console use?
Tegra 3 SoC with 1.7 GHz Quad-Core ARM Cortex A9
Not bad for under 24 hours of churning.
Not bad! But somehow the mobile stats Seem incorrect, it tells me my overall score is 405602 while on mobile and online
Can someone provide some more details about what actually we have to do means what does the app do after installing on our phone and what does the term "computing" means??? I dint got any idea about what actually i have to do after installing the app and how does its gonna help so can someone elaborate it in detail please.
In a nutshell, BOINC will use your device's idle processing power (when you're not using it, of course) to perform analysis and computation on tiny chunks of data related to medical or technological research. Once the processing is complete, BOINC will return the results to The Mothership, where they'll be combined with results from all of the other devices participating in the program. The tiny chunks will add up over time, and perform research on a much larger scale than would be possible with just a single computer or even cluster. You'll receive credit/points for each chunk of data that you successfully process and return. By joining the AF team, those points will be combined so we can see how much good we're doing together.
Does that help any?
I think a fair question is whether this puts folks on limited data plans at risk of burning that allotment or can communication with the mothership be set to use WiFi only?
BOINC has an option to restrict data transfers to wifi-only, and also a configurable daily transfer limit to keep it from burning through data if that option isn't selected. :thumbup:
I could Not have Said it better myself!
I want to see if i Can get a banner and post it here for our team
+1 for the banner
I'm also really liking BOINC for my PC. Compared to F@H it doesn't seem to have my PC at 100%, making a huge amount of noise and blowing out tonnes of hot air, although the units do seem to take slightly longer to complete.
A banner would be sweet - or even a tiny userbar like
Alas, I have no graphical capabilities. Maybe someone could make one for the Team?
Oh I'm talking about a generated banner provide by BoincStats where it shows off out stats. I see many members that have one on the WCG forums.
