Dear all,

a new record for ATLAS@home,
over 8.000 active WUs !

http://atlasathome.cern.ch/atlas_job.php

Thank you to all the volunteers participating in the ATLAS simulation effort!

Looks like BOINC is 2nd biggest contributor after CERN-P1?

What about publishing that on the Public website of the Atlas project...
And also worth mentioning, way over 3,000 Gigaflops.

Maybe even as a news item on a more general Cern website?

This news may attract more people to the project, which means, more simulations in less time :)

hi,

Would these include the Atlas jobs running as part of the CERN Public Computing Challenge?
I joined that project and in the job logs noticed something like 'project = boinc' (don't remember exactly)?
I quit that effort since the webapi is buggy, I like the micro cernvm image and multiple core's they are using but
they are re-inventing the wheel with that webapi, boinc has a much longer
history weeding out issues.

greetings,

Harm
