I installed it but there wasn't anything to run. Best I can tell is it's for developers.

BlackHoles@Home analyses actual data from BH collisions, as detected from the LIGO detectors in the U.S., and presumably others around the world. It attempts to recover various parameters of the BH, such a spin, with higher precision than is now possible.

When two black holes collide they're travelling at about c/2. Only during the last quarter of a second of this collision is a gravitational wave of sufficient magnitude generated to be detected by LIGO.

Has anyone installed this and run it yet?

Thanks Keith, ULX & BHspin are running at speeds similar to reported here.

Just checked Linux Mint 20.1 (Ubuntu 20.04) with the latest kernel 5.4.0-66-generic x86_64 and it installs glibc 2.31. But when I checked https://www.gnu.org/software/libc/ it says they've released 2.33. The Synaptic Manager does not list glibc so I don't know what package includes it.
When I searched for how to get LM to upgrade to glibc 2.33 I didn't find anything but did see a warning not to try it since stuff will break.
Is glibc 2.31 sufficient or might glibc 2.33 give better throughput???

Some of these ULX WUs are taking 9 hours. The scoring should be proportional to the CPU time and not just a fixed number.

I don't have this problem using Linux Mint 19.2 Tina.

I have my BOINC cache set to 0.1/0.1 days and you sent me 557 ULX WUs for 61 days. I'm glad to run them but please play nice with others as Universe is not the only project I support.

You ran a new ULX WU, in an alternate universe.

I saw Universe ULX has 370 unsent and none in progress. I haven't run this before so wanted to give it a try.
I saw your post above about accidentally creating 2.2 million and overloading the server.
I'm in no hurry, just wanted to let you know in case you hadn't noticed.

Most WUs are 1 to 2 hours. Some run for a day or two. Is that normal or should the long ones be aborted???
Looking around for this but haven't seen it yet.

I flew past all the planets so fast I never even saw them. Now I've crashed into the Sun and turned into a plasma.

Why is team creation disabled??? Let me know when it's fixed and I'll do some work for you.
