No Endian in Sight (Jun 7 2007)

Today was basically divided between two tasks. First, I've been working on the splitter. What's taking so long? Well, the splitter is basically done, but needed to be tested to make sure there weren't any endian issues between moving it from Sparc to i686. To test this, we need to run the same raw data on both Sparc and i686 versions. Sounds simple, but I needed to add some overrides to prevent randomness in the output which would otherwise make bit-for-bit comparison impossible. This meant I had to reach elbow deep in code I haven't touched before. I got that working/partially tested this morning on i686. I'm working on a similar Sparc version now. Of course we retired all our big machines already so compilation is taking *forever*. Actually, I just hit some compilation errors. Damn. Probably won't be getting this done this week.

The other thing was more surgery on isaac. If anybody noticed the boinc.berkeley.edu web site disappearing for long periods, this is why. Jeff and I were doing CPU testing, popping processors in and out to find potential bad ones. The results were inconclusive. This is all part of a debugging procedure imposed by Dell (BOINC bought this server so it is under warranty).

Appart for Anandtech's stats, it shows how much more/less than Anandtech.
Also shows based on Average Work Done how many days for Anandtech to overtake the team, or be overtaken by a team behind
