It tried, all night, to do something. Mostly, I get dozens of couldn't contact servers msgs, but I've also got dozens of CPU usage too high msgs. Am I wasting your time? Is my computer too little? I'm bummed.

the contact server msgs are inevitable due to the servers being down. See the S@H home page for more info.

the CPU usage to high warning is usually due to the preference being set to low in your BOINC computing preferences. If you'd like Seti or BOINC to crunch all the time just change the % to 100% and you wont get that message ever again.

OK, I reset my CPU usage to 100%. We'll see what happens tonight. If there's anything else I should reset, let me know. If you don't hear back from me, it worked. Thanks!

The preference you have to change is this:

Suspend work if CPU usage is above  	--- %
            0 means no restriction
      Enforced by version 6.10.30+

Set it to 0 (zero) or 100%
