Got same error : can\'t attach shared memory

Probably due to high traffic on the servers today

My mashines are:
Win XP SP3 with 1.5 GB Ram
Vista32 SP1 with 3 GB Ram (actually 4 GB)

BOINC manager 6.2.18

I also keep getting this error:
Message from server: Server error: can't attach shared memory

using windows xp pro, 2GB ram, have tried using boinc versions 6.2.18 and 5.10.45 but get the same error on both versions, so guessing is not a boinc problem....

Le gros problème est que du coup on ne peut plus rattacher le projet (pour ceux comme moi qui s\'y étaient détaché pour changer l\'URL...) :(
But now I can\'t add this project to my BOINC with this error message... :(

The newly formed black hole has swallowed a couple servers. I\'m sure they\'ll replace them quickly.


Don\'t worry! They\'ll be back in service as soon as they retrieve them from the new white hole on the other end of this new black hole. <GRIN>

Cheers,

Stephen
