Geez...a week and no work units given, no multi-computer queue system, piss poor premature rollout of the public version....forget it. I'll still try to hit 50k units on classic if it lasts (@ 38k now on an inactive email account that I can't transfer to PLOINK) but fark me if I'll take my 100+ per day worth of classic crunching to that POS PLOINK! I haven't even been able to get a single damn work unit since it went public. Forget it. I'm done. BOINC sucks. It might be good eventually but y'all lost me as a cruncher. Me an my 50ish machines say good riddance and goodbye to the $400/mo power bills once seti classic flips the off switch. Bah. Humbug. Fark you. Goodbye and good riddance.

Do you..... have something to get off your chest?


How about you forget that they went public with BOINC for the time being and stick with Classic for a while. Then, in a month or two, come try BOINC again once they have things smoothed out.

As early adopters of new technology, people really need to stop complaining when things don't always work. Do you buy the highest of the high end computers, the top of the line video cards, the brand new version of MS Office as soon as they are "public"? My guess is no.... you sit back and wait a bit, let things get patched and worked out. BOINC is no different.

Who cares, just go! What a cry baby.
