Hi:

I've a MacBook, OSX 4.11, and SETI/BOINC seems to be stuck. I've had the "Communicating with BOINC client" for at least 24hours (I tend to let it just run and ignore it most of the time).

Now I want to shut down, and I get a message saying that BOINC will be grumpy if I do.

Someone have answers? Or questions that will help me lead you to an answer???

Thanks,
Neil

I've force-quit, because SETI/BOINC was "not responding."

When I (think I) restarted it and looked at the messages, I found the folowing huge list. If someone can figure out what the Heck is happening, please offer any intelligent advice you can:

Gosfrei,

I had the same thing myself just now. I had to force-quit it to get it to behave. It's now behaving itself.
