We are happy to see that many of you have moved over to LHC@Home. There are still a few remaining tasks left over here on ATLAS@Home, and in order to complete the move to LHC we plan to cancel all these tasks on Friday 7 April. If you are still running some ATLAS tasks please try to complete them by then so that you can get the credit.

After we have cancelled all the tasks we can proceed to move the credit over to LHC.

My ATLAS@home has a different account name than the LHC@home. How do I transfer the credits?

you need only the same e-mail account.
Cern is transfering your cobblestones from ATLASathome to LHCatHome.

Please don't do this. I have tasks on 2 machines that have been running for around 10 days, i.e. substantially before this announcement, and losing credit isn't an acceptable option. Could you just let the old ones return in their own time? I don't know why these are still running, they've been saying that they're close to or at 100% for days but that's not the point. If I'm lucky they'll finish but I'm not holding my breath. If you'd like to offer credit for the work done, that'd be fine but, otherwise, I don't want to lose 20-odd days' credit.

Thanks.

I have now cancelled all the remaining tasks.

rebel9, I could not see your tasks active in the BOINC database, so maybe they were already past the deadline? You won't get credit for those, sorry.
