That project is doing nothing useful, only running the default sample BOINC app. Please disable it until the real work starts. People should be discouraged from running it until there is real work.

It doesn't even matter if the new one isn't too good. Spam software will notice it's phpbb2 and attempt to crack the default captcha, which won't work. Even if it's easy to crack the new captcha, they don't have software to do it :)

For users whose stats are not in a project's XML files, the site attempts to parse their stats from the project's HTML stats. One piece of information that is missing from the HTML stats is the "expavg_time" time stamp. I have updated the parsing code to use the time that the stats were parsed for ...

Bah, too bad classic stats aren't available on the XML page (show_user.php?format=xml). I should ask the devs to add it!

And I was just about to request the opposite. Give the expavg and expavg_time to the widget, and let the widget do the decay. Less load for your server, and it could be made so the widget updates the RAC every minute without having to contact your server. But I guess I'd rather do my own widget if I...

Widget beep

I have been months trying to figure out what program was causing those strange beeps. It was the same sound as when a popup message appears, but I couldn't find such message from any open application. I JUST found I had the 'beep on update' checkbox set on the BOINC stats widget ! Could you use a cu...

By the way, there is an XML version too. (On some projects it's broken; for example Lattice has HTML mixed on it, I just reported it)

Your stats are not in the XML stats files yet. So it looks like my site is having problems getting your stats from their HTML pages. Correct. I get this: Could not find your account ID in the XML stats... using HTML stats instead. The following errors occured: Could not connect to Lattice server, p...

Yes, I'd like the feature... But I'm fairly sure I had an 'others' pseudo-project on the widget before upgrading :shock:

There used to be a pseudo-project called "Others" with the summed credits of the hidden projects. Where did it go? :? It's not on the most recent version.

Note that for the RAC calculation, avg_time should be taken from a separate field on the user XML.

<expavg_credit>42.470870275742</expavg_credit> <- $avg
<expavg_time>1185951626</expavg_time> <- $avg_time
