Help!!! I've downloaded Windows BOINC and now I can't get any work for it... all I get in response is:
--- - 2004-07-01 08:18:02 - Fewer active results than CPUs; requesting more work
SETI@home - 2004-07-01 08:18:02 - Requesting 86240 seconds of work
SETI@home - 2004-07-01 08:18:02 - Sending request to scheduler: http://setiboinc.ssl.berkeley.edu/sah_cgi/cgi
SETI@home - 2004-07-01 08:18:15 - Scheduler RPC to http://setiboinc.ssl.berkeley.edu/sah_cgi/cgi succeeded
SETI@home - 2004-07-01 08:18:15 - Message from server: Not sending work - last RPC too recent: 283 sec
SETI@home - 2004-07-01 08:18:15 - No work from project
SETI@home - 2004-07-01 08:18:15 - Deferring communication with project for 10 minutes and 0 seconds

This is really dumb and frustrating!!! So when is BOINC going to work properly??

Please be patient. Starting something very new is not always that easy. The world has not been created in one day, as space also.
Be sure Berkeley people are working hard to get problems fixed.
I would advise not to try desperately each 5 minutes to download WU's. This overloads the servers even more.

Greetings from Belgium.

The server has a minimum of 10 or 20 minutes between retries. Don't try to retry any sooner than this.
