Re: 1Million on latin squares ( ODLK1)

Hi Dave Well done on reaching another Milestone :-) I assume the "Rakesearch" you are now crunching is the other "Rake search" project, as they have just relaunched and have plenty of new, short (claimed to be about one hour each, but probably shorter !) tasks available. https://rake.boincfast.ru/ra...

Re: Rosetta UOTD

Hiya

Thanks Mark - although given that I haven't returned many Rosetta tasks recently, I'm a bit surprised...but you "can't look a gift horse... " !!

And it's nice to get a bit of "free advertising" on their website :-)

Upload/download issues on a few BOINC projects
