Ok, ok... Let's rename the thread:

"Please note: this project often has work but then runs out of work and the users moan about it for a while until there is work again and when there is a lot of work the power users moan about the quotas the way the non-power users used to moan about unfair distribution of work back when this project rarely had work"

There. Stick that sticky thread in your pipe and smoke it.

Ahem....I wasnt MOANING about anything.....only making a statement based on the previous post.

EXACTLY! Ive already joined 2 BOINC projects...why do I need to join more to keep my systems from being idle. I shouldnt have to choose more than 2 if there are only 2 I want to participate in....I have been DCing for years now and HATE idle systems. MOst DCers pick projects they like and support. Im not going to pick some lame project I have no interest in simply to give my systems something to do...

...and as far as asking more projects to join BOINC, from what Ive seen, that would be a mistake...if out of the 5 or 6 projects in BOINC only 1 is running regularly [and ironically its one of the newer BOINC projects], it sounds like a disaster waiting to happen at this point.

...back to Folding@Home and Lifemapper for awhile I guess...

Forgive me if Im a little suspicious about that whole thing. Its been over a month and they have no idea when they are getting their server? Im no DELL lover by any stretch but this whole waiting for DELL story makes me wonder. Its not like they are some guy sitting at home waiting for his DELL laptop. This is a large institution putting great resources behind their purchase. Most of the people here could have built the server for them by now....

But what if you dont WANT to join a bunch or projects? The only ones Im interested in with regards to BOINC are Predictor@Home [which Ive pretty much given up on] and this one [which has been down more than up since I joined].

Seems to me there isnt a reliable BOINC project to choose [except for CPDN which I have no interest in]....

With all the non-BOINC projects out there, Im starting to wonder why I tried BOINC...my systems are more idle now than they used to be. I didnt start using BOINC for the "convenience of running multiple projects". I just want one or two that can run for more than 2 days at a time....
