I have been getting this for the last couple of days...So has my compuiter screwed the file up or is it a bug. This happens on both my systems. The 1`st upload for both systems was smooth, but it will not up load now. There is info under the transfers tab and this info will disappear at times but nothing is uploaded.....running a p4 3.0 and 1.8, xp pro sp1 on both. I have almost 20 completed WUs and no where to go hehe.....

This problem is due to a software problem on one of the servers.
I guess it will be fixed once the people are back at work at Berkeley.


Greetings from Belgium.

As you just discovered, upload is a two step process. Upload of the data followed by the report sometime later. The report will go during the first of: a manual update, the next request for work, or within the day before deadline.

And also as you discovered, until the data is reported, completed results will not show up on your credits list. (pending or granted)

So if you're of the instant gratification mindset, manual reporting is the way to go. (This is accomplished by right clicking on the project name in the "projects" tab, and selecting "update") This will attempt to report any WUs "ready to report". :)

Now some they do and some they don't
And some you just can't tell
And some they will and some they won't
With some it's just as well
