    Question theSkyNet

    Haven't seen this mentioned on here, but anyone trying this out yet?

    http://www.theskynet.org/

    I've signed up (well, waiting for the confirmation email actually) to have a go.

    I wonder if they'll export stats

    I took a very brief look at it yesterday. Didn't sign up at all.

    Well, I'm signed up and have a machine crunching.

    Can't quite figure out how it works - Only seems to do anything when I've got a browser window open on my dashboard page even though I'm running the standalone app. I'm burning some MIPS, but no credit showing, as I understand there's a bug.

    Pity it doesn't have any discussion fora (that I can find) - Would be a lot easier to work with.

    Oh, looks like the BOINC version is starting up. I've only just attached a couple of hosts, so no idea how it's going to work out

    Is there any chance of getting the non-BOINC app added to the non-BOINC stats? It is possible to only run that app and thus would need a way of seeing how you stand with others. The BOINC client doesn't tally the points from the Java based app. They are not the same research and so is a separate sub project. They say on their page that they are merging the points, but I believe that is just on their site for the purpose of adding "trophies" and for competing within the project itself.

    Are there stats available ? I don;t know anything about this really.

    I have sent them a message requesting this info. Their main page is www.theskynet.org I will post again when they reply to me.

    The Nereus app can be ran either as an installable service that runs in the background and starts at bootup OR it can be simply ran from the web browser.

    Hey guys,

    Yea we've got export stats for most things as json. So for example http://www.theskynet.org/profiles/1050.json gives my details or http://www.theskynet.org/profiles.json?per_page=100 for brief stats on the top 100 users. The code for it is pretty straight forward so I can add stuff nice and easily if there is anything that people would like it too do. What data does DC stats need?

    Here is the response I received:

    I've posted this on that forum link as well.

    I looked at it and tried getting all data by putting in per_page=100000 or so, but it still seemed to cut off, so I was unsure how to get all the data and I gave up at the time. Parsing was fairly easy though.

    Question is whether you want to display all this! Chances are that your signature will be too big for your screen with the 'real heavy weight' crunchers:

    Hey Bok,

    Yea i've put in an upper limit on the number displayed per page. If you would like all of them in a single file. I could add an hourly job that creates a single JSON or XML file with every user in it, if that would help.

    That would help. Thanks!

    No worries. Is JSON a suitable format for you?

    Anything that can be parsed is ok, I use perl for the parsing. csv or xml is probably easiest though.

    Hey Bok,

    I've put together a little script that spits out a XML file and a JSON file with all the profiles in it. Let me know if this works for you or if it needs anything else added.
