My favourite is the ‘Quantum Mechanic’ one.

Enjoy yourself.

... a tonne of liquid helium leaked into the tunnel ...

Does that mean everyone is now speaking in high pitched Mickey Mouse voices?

It was announced today that scientists from Dorset have been planning and building their own version of the particle collider. Due to start the experiments in November, they already have the string and are just waiting for the conkers to come into season.

Q How many Quantum Theorists does it take to change a light bulb?

A Not two. It is impossible for two Quantum Theorists to agree about the state of the light bulb and when that is in danger of happening, one of them has to vanish.

The only time a Quantum Theorist will know where a light bulb is, is when it is moving but he won't know how fast. The moment it stops moving he will go red, start muttering and demand another light bulb.

Either way, a Quantum Theorist may have Colour and Strangeness but no Charm.

Thanks geo...

I am not sure I understand the system.

1. There is work to do.
2. I and my computer are waiting

Yawn

Thanks for your reply

The line above says:-
Sending scheduler request: Requested by user. Requesting 0 seconds of work, reporting 0 completed tasks

How do I get it to request some work?

Post:
Why is it, when the Server Status says:-
--‘Up, 4200 workunits to crunch’
And I hit the ‘Update’ button to get more tasks
The message reply says
--‘Scheduler request succeeded: got 0 new tasks’

This is really irritating

Well, I've installed BOINC, I've linked to a Project, and it's running OK; so how or when do I get any work?
My message log says 'Scheduler request succeeded: got 0 new tasks'
