    Yeah, I have to admit though after reading that entire thread I am a little confused as to whether the linux core is still optimized or not. Oh well, no harm in running it for a little while.

    Looks like this is now the test project, while the actual project has gone live on a new server. How will this impact FB?

    From the project's main page:

    Main (production) server started
    I would like to announce that production server for our project is officially started. To join to main project create account at:

    http://universeathome.pl/universe

    or use BOINC Manager to join.
    In a cause of problem in manager, please "reset" the project in manager (this will update project names in manager).

    This server will stay live for testing new applications. 21 Feb 2015, 11:22:07 UTC

    Update: I have attached to the main project and got new work right away. New WU's are named "Universe X-ray sources."

    I'm on the U@H bandwagon.

    And it appears that the test project is represented at FB. I'm assuming they will add the live project once it has 1 million points distributed but someone may need to let them know about it.

    skgiven posted this over at WUProp and I thought it might be helpful to someone else like me who has data caps on their internet.

    For anyone on a capped Internet con...doesn't interfere with their ISP imposed Cap.

    BOINCStats now has Universe listed along with the test site.

    I finally had my account activated today and posed the question about U@H there. We shall see what they say.

    Based on the response I received at FB, it appears the Universe@Home project will be added to FB on 4/1.

    The test site has been pulled from BOINCStats as the main project has now been shut down. I have removed it from the All Inclusive DC Project list.

    Also, GPU development is still underway. It will be nice to see this come to play.

    Gpu App? Universe@Home

    A new application called Black Hole Database (BHDB) has just being introduced for initial testing.

    I tried 4 WUs last night and all failed due to some disk limit error. Will try again in the next few days.

    There is a new work batch with "238" in the WU file name that will take about 3 times longer to crunch compare to the old one with "263". The credit for the new task batch is the same as before i.e. 666.67 pts.

    It seems that there are quite a number of rigs that are currently bunkering Universe with the old tasks. Just hoping that the next FB project is not Universe. I've to pray hard.....:angelic:
