Re: Advertising on UBT forum

Hi all Well, I'm *STILL* waiting for Google AdSense to kick in....I believe they need to assess the website and make sure it complies with their criteria...but as they've not told me what the criteria is or even what they expect me to do (other than to add their code snippets), then I'm really not s...

Re: Leiden closing

Hi Mark Shame....was always a good project with very few issues (IMHO). It really does look like a few projects are giving up on BOINC, for whatever reason. And it won't be long before Johns "ubtstats" website is just kicking it's heels, with very few stats to update. :-( Hopefully some other, bette...

Re: Duchamp Sourcefinder closing

Hi Mark That's a shame...but OTOH, it might mean that the projects that continue to be active might attact more members crunching for them. The obvious downside is that the data gathered by projects will end and hence whatever research it is they are/were carrying out, will end. However, some previo...

Re: Sztaki closing

HI Mark Thanks for the update - with hindsight, it's obvious that the Pentathlon would have an effect as teams clambered for credits...and where we don't have enough "firepower" so those projects would suffer...hence we lost lots of positions on Numberfields. Sadly that project is the Pentathlon mar...

Re: Sztaki closing

Hi Mikee Well, we've gained 15 points on Sztaki and gained 10 points on the last Sprint...so that makes a gain of 25 points...and yet we're still on 178 points overall...I'd have thought we'd have more points than that? Have we lost out on some of the other projects recently? Maybe Mark has the answ...

Re: Damn, bloomin' computers

Otherwise, maybe you could set up a Boinc project to crack the codes? :D Mark Hi Mark OK - so, I'll set up such a project and you create a nice website which allows users to easily upload their "Login Data" files to me. Some sort of batch file that members download onto a USB stick and it "auto-run...

Re: Damn, bloomin' computers

Hi Mark Thanks for the info - extremely useful :-) I was aware that Chrome uses encryption to hide the password data...it was just a question of finding where abouts the actual file was.... I've also learned about this, a nice looking tool called ChromePass: https://www.nirsoft.net/utils/chromepass....

Re: theSkyNet (POGS) has finished.

Hi Mark

I knew it was coming but I had hoped to raise my project total a bit more...though getting to #1 UK spot was going to take a monumental effort, as OcUK are so far ahead.

Still...at least it means we can concentrate on some other worthy projects.

Once my account with Google Adsense is activated (probably within the next 24 hours or so) then in theory, as one advert should appear underneath the footer of one (or more) forum pages (in theory - as I though...

Hi all So, I had to have a bit of a shift around at home, to accommodate a new piece of furniture, so I ran down my caches and shut down the PC (which has been on since I moved here 8 months or so ago). Got everything back in place and powered up the PC, which had moved literally about 8 inches...an...

Re: dDM closing down

Hi Mark

Thanks for the heads up.

Shame about dDM....I didn't give it a lot of time, but I never had any issues with crunching their tasks.

Shame we can't go out on a "high" stats wise, but that's life !!

Re: New project - Acoustics@home

Hi Mikee Thanks for the heads up on this projects "status". The downside for me is that they have used the BOINC Wide database, in order to populate existing teams into their own database...and this includes the founders of the teams too... However, due to them not having bought an SSL certificate, ...
