Personally, I have no intention to shut down the screen saver for all the other projects whose screensavers play together just fine just because LHC’s doesn’t. So unless the goal of this project is to see how many errored out WU’s a participant can tolerate before dumping the project, I think this problem should get fixed.

I just got my first 2 WU’s 10 months to the day from the last LHC WU’s that I completed. The first one got a computational error 3 minutes into it. It may be just a coincidence, but the error occurred at the exact moment that the screen saver kicked in. The next WU started up immediately after and it ran to completion in about 10 minutes. This time I was actively using the computer the whole time so the screen saver never kicked in. So it seems that the screen saver is causing problems.

Not me either. It’s been more than 9 months since my last WU from this project. And my story is certainly not unique.

Wish they would simply reply as to when something will be available.

I would be happy if they would simply reply as to IF something will be available. Or if someone directly associated with the project would acknowledge that the project even exists. I am beginning to think that the only reason the project servers are still running is because nobody has noticed that the are still plugged in and using up valuable electricity.

Why join us? ;-) It’s obvious. The name itself shows the Way. We are on our way UP ..and we are already the Star Team in Boinc. ;-)

The main goal is to see as much smiles in this team as we see credit...and it seems to work pretty well! ;-)

A team is about creating a network, somewhere to be valued for who you are. Become a member of our team, and be a part of our Astra Family. To crunch is fun, not by looking at your computer whilst it works, but by sharing the joy with your team-mates. It’s that Simple.

You are in it for Free, the Secret is hidden Inside.. And you can Fly with the Crowned Astras!

Will you join us on our way to the stars?

Check out our team stats… Sicituradastra. Boinc stats.

And if you like what you see…

On that page you find links to our team sites in the different Boinc projects

I do not believe that you can delete the account. Most projects need to maintain all accounts opened with them for scientific reasons. They need to be able to document the work that you did for project under that account.

Yes - we have room for YOU too - who have not made up your mind yet -
but want to join a team ...for the right reason..; To reach your unknown Star! ;-)

When you wake up everyday
Please don't throw your dreams away
Hold them close to your heart
'Cause we are all a part
Of the ordinairy miracle

Do you want to see a miracle?

It seems so exceptional
That things just turn out after all
It's just another
Ordinairy miracle today

Team Sic members crunch for 28 different projects including LHC and we are one of the fastest rising teams in BOINC so…………
If You Dare to Dream - Come and Join us !!! .............

Does any one know why there have been no WU\\\\\\\'s going out? I have been with this project for 2 going on 3 weeks now and as of yet had no work sent my way.
Does any body know why this is ???
I look forward to your answers and thank you for your help.

Unfortunately, your experience is not unusual. This project supplies very little work. And the managers of this project do little to let those who volunteer for them know what is going on with the project. So we are all being kept in the dark. Personally, I have not had any work from LHC in 5 weeks, so I feel your frustration. But as Gas Giant suggests, read through the other forums and you will know as much about what is going on as the rest of us (there is not a whole lot there, so it shouldn’t take you very long). But my best recommendation for now is to crunch for other projects while you keep this one running. And if you happen to get a WU or two from LHC once in a while, treat them like unexpected gifts and feel lucky that you got them. We can only hope that when the collider gets repaired that more work will be generated. But I wouldn’t hold my breath.

Hello Crunchers ;-)

This is to invite you to join our team. You are most Welcome!

Sic itur ad astra - This is / such are the way to the stars.
The meaning behind this is that to go anywhere, it starts out
with a dream. Then we have to stand for our dream, and have
the courage to follow it up. Only in this way we can reach the
stars. But sometimes find our way to the stars by looking inward.

This tells everything about a project such as LHC@home. To search
for theoretical particles at the quantum level is something that
many people will find absolutely crazy.. ;-) Still, we are some of many who
want to reach in there to find them... ;-)

The meaning behind the name also tells what is behind each and
every project in Boinc. It all starts with an idea, a dream, and
survives by the courage to stand for it, work for it, and believe
in it. In this way a lot can be achieved. Yes!
To succeed, we have to nurse the spirit behind the dream.
The best way to do it is by keeping the smile in our hearts,
and to share it.
Such are the way to the stars! We are working on it! ;-)

It would be So Wonderful to see more people joining!

We are still a small team in proportion to some others, but we
have a big view - and we are doing Great! ;-D

At the moment we are ranked as nr 250 in Boinc by total credit,
and nr 70 by Rac. This out of 81,792 teams. ;-)
We mainly crunch Seti and Milkyway - but are also in other projects like LHC.

If you dare to join a small but climbing international team, we
can do even better..
Who knows if the star-team Sicituradastra will be at the top one
day! It surely belongs there. ;-D

Please visit... and then... Join!
I am waiting for another smiley avatar to crown! You’ll be one of us in the Astra family. ;-)

Boinc stats - all projects.

........... If You Dare to Dream - Come and Join us !!! .............
