I want to be on an OW team regardless of project and since I was taught to share, I don't mind if there are other Zooniverse folks on the team - the more the merrier has always been my motto  ;D.  I will install BOINC and be ready for action.  ;D

I do World Community Grid, and several other projects, as well as climateprediction.net.

Caro is hard at work! An "Old Weather" team should be available in World Community Grid in a couple of days.

Caro and I are happy to announce that the Old Weather team is now available in climateprediction.net.

It will be available to other projects shortly.

GREAT!

Tomorrow I'll start posting a list of other projects associated with the 'Old Weather' team as they become available.

How many models will run at once?  I ask because I now have 4 running  :o - to quote one of my favorite movies "This is so exciting!"

 ;D I'm glad you are having fun! 8)

I don't really know the answer to your question.
My computer has 4 CPUs (and a GPU which some projects use), so I see 4 tasks with a status of Running. Since I have far more tasks than CPUs, they have to share, so I also have a bunch of tasks Waiting to run. Then I have some tasks that have been downloaded but haven't started running yet - Ready to start. I usually have 2 climate models that are either Running or Waiting to run, and I often have a third Ready to start.

Keep us posted!

THank you!  It's so nice to not be picked last for the team :)   So far it's for some reason downloaded two models and is at just over 2% on both of them.  Slow work... almost as slow as my progress on Yarmouth.

I'd join, but my parents don't want me downloading software. They think it'll slow down the computer.  :P

Tell them that if you tell it not to run, it won't affect the computer's speed at all.  You can define how much or little of the computer's memory it should use when it is running, and if no one's using the computer they won't notice that it's slowed down (if a piece of software runs in the forest and no one is there...).

I have not yet tried for example to use photoshop on a large image while also running the BOINC models, but since it will relinquish memory as needed, I don't think it would have an impact.

The last day or so, I've been letting it run while my laptop reads me a book (The Surgeon's Mate) and I knit.  Why not use the capacity that's going unused?
