Because it is an autonmatic message & they are too busy working on the disk space issue to bother with such a trivial matter only to have to reinstate it for next week.

I they took a moment to update the front page (the column IS called news after all, not old outdated news), maybe the much hated (for some in here anyway) users would maybe get the picture and would stop complaining.

Matt:

Just curious-- as if you don't have enough to do putting out server fires-- how is it possible to have successfully downloaded a "master file" when the status returns indicate the servers are done? Are these files stored elsewhere in the system, or is my success just due to sporadic server operation?

Have you ever considered separate servers for dishing out unprocessed packets versus those for receiving processed packets? At least when the receiving servers failed, we'd still be able to retrieve new packets. At the moment, I am at a CPU standstill.

Keep up the good work, though.

WATERHOLE

The "master file" is on the web server, so while these web pages can be accessed so can the "master file".

The "Master file" is actually the web page "http://setiathome.berkeley.edu". There are some tags buried in the XML that the client knows how to read that direct the client to where the update servers are.

I'm just curious too.
Anyone know why the Boinc Stats have not been updated for the last 8 or 9 days?
Thanks in advance for the info.
Chuck
