#1 RNA World - New Beta Project

Post by MacDitch »

http://www.rnaworld.de/rnaworld/create_account_form.php?teamid=365

The above link creates an account on a new Beta project, RNA World (beta).

The project description is here if you want to find out more. I haven't looked into it at all (yet!) so can't tell you whether or not it's worth the effort but if anyone is feeling brave they can wade in and let us all know. :)

They do want beta testers running W2K so if anyone wants to admit to that then just get in touch with them and set up a team for us.
Edit: In fact I'll just see if I can persuade my laptop to dual boot W2K & still be able to connect to the interweb.

Team is already there (teamid=365) as it was created with my account through the global teams thingy. Which reminds me, anyone else registered on the global team thingy?

No... Far as I can make out only Team and Team owner accounts are replicated to other projects. Or have I misunderstood something ?

It's been a long time since I looked at it and so can't recall. I'll have a poke around over the weekend and check.

Double post - very bad of me!

Having spent a few minutes digging I eventually found the 'global team thingy' and there appear to be five people attached. Unfortunately there also seems to be a line saying that only the team 'owner' is imported. I may try 'upgrading' a couple of other founders to captains (or whatever it was they came up with) and we can see if that means they propogate but looks like this is unhelpful at the moment. :shrug:

And we're off! As of tonight TSBT is placed 71st in the world and 4th in the UK :wav:

Err, no-body mention that there are just 94 teams in the world and 6 in the UK. :oops:

Anybody can attach to the project in the usual fashion although the supply of work is somewhat sparse at present.

But I could have misheard (I suffer from Tinitus).

Mock thee not as our progress in this fledgling project continues magnificently. We now have 3 active crunchers for RNA World - Mike Steve & myself. We are 57th now out of a slightly more respectable 97 active teams and are set to become UK #3 in the next 24hrs. Over the last hour we have even even out-paced UBT!

Let all mention that we are now UK # 1 for RNA world! :wav: :occasion5:

And I've passed 10K.

The project seems pretty generous although the supply of WUs is a bit uneven.

With RNA you have to start running the WUs reasonably shortly after downloading them otherwise (if they haven't started) they get cancelled as redundant results. If the unit has started it goes to completion and you get the credits even if the result is redundant.

Not unreasonable really as it means one doesn't run a lot of redundant results (just a waste of few downloads).

Probably not a good idea to download a long queue... unless you can get through it fast.

Many thanks to PP, Reeltime & Ianmbaker who all join us on RNA World and also to Storme who tried (don't give up you'll get some work eventually).

We have consolidated our lead as UK #1 and are up to 27th in the world which isn't bad for a team that just got going a few days ago. Further gains are imminent. :)

And Aardvark & Storme join battle as we go 16th by RAC and 19th by Total Credit. :wav:

I'm second in the UK for the project and Merlyn is 3rd, admittedly out of just 30 active users - 7 of whom are with TSBT 8) .

Simap ran out of WU's so I thought I would jump on the RNA bandwagon while it was still rolling. Must have been too much extra weight, for said bandwagon has ground to a halt (No new WU's)

Late to the battle - my antivirus had been valiantly swatting any attempts to unzip the work units until I noticed and told it not to panic!
