1) Message boards : Project Staging Area : PRPNet Help (Message 129957)
Posted 27 days ago by numbermaniac
If your PRPNet client runs the now-expired task, you will not get credit for it. The PRPNet server will reject that result.

Alright, that makes sense. Thank you!

If I receive a task on PRPNet but then don't run PRPNet for a few days and the task expires (3 days for k=27), the next time I start PRPNet, will it drop the task and download a new one, or will it run the invalidated task anyway? If it's the latter, will I still receive credit for it?


It depends upon the startoption in your prpclient.ini file.

// startoption= tells the client what to do when starting up and there is work that has // not been completed and returned to the server. The accepted values are: // 0 - prompt // 1 - Return completed work units, abandon the rest, then get more work // 2 - Return completed work units, abandon the rest, then shut down // 3 - Return completed, then continue // 4 - Complete inprogress work units, abandon the rest, then get more work // 5 - Complete inprogress work units, abandon the rest, then shut down // 6 - Complete all work units, report them, then shut down // 9 - Continue from where client left off when it was shut down


If option 9 is set, will it check whether the current task is now "too old" before continuing it? Does option 3 check for the same thing?

4) Message boards : News : Reason you should upgrade BOINC (Message 129445)
Posted 42 days ago by numbermaniac
My version is v7.14. I can't find any option to upgrade to version 7.4 on the website or in the app. Maybe the BOINC update suggesting we upgrade to version 7.4 is "broke", but I don't want to suggest fixing it unless I'm missing something.

14 is a larger number than 4. Therefore 7.14 is newer than 7.4 - the latter is very old.

Will there be an announcement/BOINC notice for it? I wouldn't have even known about this if I wasn't part of the PrimeGrid Discord.

The big number on the left side of the front page is missing a 7, saying 628774 instead of 6287774. That would make the number only 1,520,041 digits long.
