I have this problem, when something comes up that I do not like or is not working correctly, I do one of two things, 1. change my position in relation to the item I do not like or is not working, or 2. fix or have the item fixed.
AT this point there are somethings that I do not like about BOINC and there are some things that I feel are broken, but I will not move nor can I fix them so I will just wait and let the people who know the talk and walk the walk do their thing. I support the TEAM not the individual. We are here of our own free will and you can leave of your own free will.
Seti@Home, it is really about the science, isn’t it!!
