UD - Joined the team Saturday and have a question
I followed everyone over here to TechIMO and thought it was time to get involved with helping the UD team. I don't post very often in the forums but I watch what's happening here every day. Right now I have 4 machines running the UD client. My T-bird 800, Athlon Classic 500@700, K62-400, and an my print server which is an old Pentium 200. Not an incredible amout of power, but it should help.
I had also installed the client on my wife's laptop, but I decided to remove it because it isn't running very much of the time. Is there a way to remove it from my device manager at the UD website?

Good question.. and AFAIK there isnt' a way.. but it isn't effecting anything... personaly I would like to have more control over my device list as well.. the abilty to combine devices.. the reason being.. if u have to reinstall UD in the future.. even if you give the same device name.. to the letter.. it will still create a new Device..
This is a question to ask Gila.. maybe Gila has seen something on the UD message board about them doing something about this in the future..
Sorry I couldn't help more

The statistics replication scripts that copy/calculate from the main UD database to the database reserved for members.ud.com web traffic are now running regularly every 4 hours with no issues.
I now have a complete result by result verification check at the end of each cycle to ensure that the script is performing correctly. (It will notify me and/or other UD staff instantly if it does not complete a cycle correctly).
In addition, as mentioned in previous notices about statistics work, I am about 50% done on reloading/recalculating specific days between 10/22 and 11/22. This work is being done to correct about 25-50 per result statistics per day on average (out of an average of 350,000 total results per day...or around .00015%).
In order to ensure 100% accuracy of all historical calculations in the database reserved for the members.ud.com web traffic, once the reload/recalculate for specific days since 10/22 are done (correcting a few results per day), the teams calculations for those days will also need to be adjusted. This will require me to actually delete the existing team statistics for a given day and then recalculate them from the member statistics for that day, using the historical team association data. (Yes, we keep a complete individual record of every member's team association for every single day - just for events like this.) During the 15-20 minutes at a time when I have to delete the team data for a day, the statistics display will be incorrect overall, obviously. I am choosing to do it this way (correcting one day at a time) rather than taking the entire database down for hours at a time, so as to not disrupt access to the rest of the members statistics and pages. I will give a "all done/all clear" message signal when I have completed the teams rework as well. Until then, please expect and understand teams stats to be "off" now and then (for the next couple of days).
Sort of related side note: For those wondering why UD has not allowed/implemented the "delete inactive/dormant device(s)" function, despite the many requests (and instead just implemented inactive/dormant device filtering)...see above...referring to our also keeping an exact day by day record of every member and team association. Without it, I would not be able to reconstruct the team stats. As stated many times, if/when we start offering device deletion or merge capabilities, in our current system design, we lose the ability to reconstruct a complete audit trail of device or member activity. Obviously, we may have the time, money, and/or resources in the future to redesign the system to handle device merging capabilities while still maintaining a historical audit trail, but that day has not come yet. The inactive/dormant device filtering is the best we can offer until then.

That was quick.
Thanks for the quick responses to the question. Looks like I learned something today. Now I can turn my brain back to dormant mode again...hehe...

Welcome to the team , Marco! You've got a good starter herd of cows there! I have a P133 running 24/7 so the P200 will do just fine.
