Re: ...and now 7 million on SETI !!

503,666 in two days, two days to go plus pendings, 896,552 to get, it's going to be close :D

At least there's some work available now.

Re: New Project (sort of): Science United

Hi Tim, I've had a quick look and you can now specify that you don't want work from a specific project within each category so that's an improvement, maybe David Anderson does listed to the users sometimes :) Looks a bit like Gridcoin in a way, one big superuser with loads of normal users crunching ...

Re: ...and now 7 million on SETI !!

Hi Tim, Last stats update from SETI was 9:20 PM yesterday ... and you had 7,273,513.12693 total credit then so Boincstats is reporting what it's told. Looks like the SETI website data is up to date but their exports are way behind. I wonder what they're going to do with those servers ... :techie-hid...

Re: Forum update and tweaks

I saw it a few times and couldn't catch it in time so I did a screen grab and typed it :)

Doesn't seem to be doing any harm, I imagine some counter somewhere isn't.

Re: Rakesearch problem

Hi Chris,

Have you ran it recently?

They ran out of 9x9 squares nearly a year ago and changed to 10x10 squares instead. I imagine your app_info file still references the old 9x9 application?

I don't think an app_info file is essential so you could try just renaming it?

Just cancel before the end of the trial (eg click a button) and you won't get billed. You can watch all of these services on your computer and other devices. If you have the hardwar...

Re: SETI@home hibernating

Yes, that seems about right. Well done :) Thought I might have more CPU hours under my belt though, since one of my work hats in 1999 was to handle IT ... and that meant putting SETI screensavers on the PCs! You made the twenty years club then :) Well it was nine months of screensavers, did the com...
