Whether Seti is a "scientific" project or not is irrelevant here, as Seti has had an epoch-making influence in distributed computer technology! They developed the technology which made us able to participate in this and other projects!

So searching for "little green men", no matter how serious this may be for people, have influenced the whole DC concept!

*hehe* You didn’t even need was for Ageless!

The ultimate answer is: Keep your cache low! My Connect to is as low as 0.1 day and I run 3 projects, so I never have more than 2 WU's from each project in my cache! Most of the times only 1 from each project.

That's my point exactly!

Why use a green text for "Time reported or deadline", when the text is changed to black, when reported? The green could be used better in the "Outcome" as Success and red for Failure, Invalid, or what it says. I don't know as mine are Success'es. That would be more logical, if colors should be used.

No, the lime green is not good at all! If you have to use green on that backgound, why not use a darker green like this 009900 or this 336633, or select a total different color?

Yes, and now the hoarders must feel pretty stupid! 95,000+ WU's available by now!

Tsk tsk tsk!


EDIT: 104,000+ by now!

Ermh, you mean my avatar? It's not really me, it's a pic of a cat someone has put some glasses on, not in reality, I hope, but in Photoshop! But I think it's cool and I do wear glasses! ;-)

The pic in my profile though is my own cat, Bouncer Jupiter!

Yes, ouch, it hurts to lose so much work. I don't have any other suggestions for you, except that the wrong thing was to de- and reattach, as that will create a new client, and the WU's are connected to the old client number. Did you try to merge the clients?

Yes, you don't have to remove the BOINC folder to reinstall. It'll only reinstall to the same directory with a new and fresh version of BOINC. So take the saved folders and copy them back to place and try again. If the problem is still there, reinstall BOINC without moving anything.

It's worth a try! :-)

I just installed the 4.72 client, and my LHC WU's are still estimated to 11.45.54 hours, which is ridiculous as I've never finished a 1,000,000 turn WU in more than about 4 hours and many times less, much less!

And these estimated times makes my client think that my Einstein WU's can't be finished within the deadline, so sometimes it override the round robin, so it crunches Einstein WU's solely! Even there are more than 2 days till deadline and they easily can be finished with a normal round robin!

Paul, noone of us should, lose sight of this is a hobby, I mean! And you must never lose sight of the fact, that you mean so much for these projects and the societies around them!

Don't let insensitive comments from insensitive people let you down; just accept the fact that some people's biggest problem is to decide where to go on their hollidays, and this reflects in their lifeexperience and points of view! When some people get a rush out of the credit, they get in the different projects, then the withdrawal symptoms are really nasty and make them really bitchy! So, in times like the past days over at Seti, please just focus on the good you do for the projects, and how much you help us there.

If this can make you through the day, when you have the darkest hours, then your efforts are not in vain!

It seemed that the failed upload to Seti got it back to normal!

But funny, when I marked the LHC WU, which was stated as preempted, the Show Graphic button was still highlighted!
