well here is the probelm, its currently 2PM here and my deadline for sending the WU off is 8PM, they are all completed and ready for sending but the only problem is this: Deferring communication with project for 20 hours, 28 minutes, and 48 seconds!!

clearly i am going to miss the deadline for sending them back and i was wondering if there is anyway to 'purswade' it to send them off sooner

also just as a matter of interest what happens if you send them in after deadline?

Unfortunatley folks we seem to have landed ourselfs an entirley windowscentric system here everything is in favour of windblows . I am trying to find simple information like how to reset the project no hope i see they are talking about version 4 of the software and it is no use running the version 3 stuff Err where is the version 4 software i cant find any .

I think the Goat from M$ Corp has gotten into the frame and is cutting us out the obvious answer is re-instate the Classic way of doing things far better IMHO .

How about:
Usage: ./boinc_4.05_i686-pc-linux-gnu [options]
-version show version info
-exit_when_idle Get/process/report work, then exit
-show_projects show attached projects
-return_results_immediately contact server when have results
-detach_project URL detach from a project
-reset_project URL reset (clear) a project
-attach_project attach to a project (will prompt for URL, account key)
-update_prefs URL contact a project to update preferences
-run_cpu_benchmarks run the CPU benchmarks
-check_all_logins check input from remote users
-allow_remote_gui_rpc allow remote GUI RPC connections

Do not worry neither client is able to get anything from s@h at the moment. They will update the download page with 4.05 as soon the have the servers ready for it.

I am afraid, but your not returned result will be lost. They won't accept v3 results after the switch.

Not nice, I know.
