Finally, I can contact the Seti server to update everything - no WUs to get but that is another story - and all the WUs I had sent in over the downtime are not credited to me and I drop to around 33% of RAC as opposed to what I had before.

Frustrating to say the least. I dont have the machinery most of you had but I had about 89 unreported but uploaded WUs to get credit for and now have lost.

Sheesh.

Wait until everything is in sync, and I'm sure you will be credited for your work units.

And don't forget that your wingmen have to report their work to before you get credit.

Cheers.

And don't forget that the validator has to come across your results. At the moment, there are waiting more than 600,000 workunits for validation. This will need some time ...

In the scheme of things what's forty or fifty work unites. I am hoping to get to my first million soon enough.

I don't have a clue what I might or might not have lost.

Does not matter, unless the science contained within were lost.

I think the backend can handle a few missing WUs.

My own response or the lack thereof should not matter to the project, and does not.

And that's the way it has to be.

Get a grip.

A single response from a single user just does not matter.

It has to be that way, or the project could not possibly continue.

I am no more important to the project than any other user on the freakin' planet.

Although more vocal than most...LOL.

I do make a difference, in my own special way.

In the long run, to Seti, this is very true.

However, I'm guessing it matters more...to the original poster. If we, as users, stop caring about even a single one of our responses--then it follows that we'd eventually stop caring about the project as a whole.

I didn't see his post as whining, but rather as trying to share and validate his frustration and possibly get answers. He cares...and to me, that's a good thing!

What I MEANT,
Was that, as far as the project and it's scientific goals are concerned....

Yes, I understand that to a specific user, especially one who's computer may take days to finish a single task, it does matter to them.

My point was that it does not insofar as the project is concerned.
