When I go to my "All tasks for ..." page (http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/results.php?userid=...), it doesn't show any workunits, although I am currently processing an Astropulse v505 WU and I finished a Seti@home WU just today. (Also, my BOINC Manager doesn't indicate, that the results of the completed Seti@home WU was uploaded. The WU just disappeared from my processing queue. How can I find out whether the results were really uploaded?)

The page reads "Keine Aufgaben verfügbar" and "State: Alle (0) | In Bearbeitung (0) | Ausstehend (0) | Gültig (0) | Ungültig (0) | Fehler (0)
Anwendung: All (0) | Astropulse v505 (0) | AstroPulse v6 (0) | SETI@home Enhanced (0) | SETI@home v7 (0)".

There should be at least a "(1)" after "In Bearbeitung". So, what am I doing wrong?

Are you sure you didn't accidentally create a second account? Is your computer attached one one account while the account you're posting with here is a separate account?

Well, when I click on "Ihre Resultate" in my Boinc Manager, my internet browser opens the empty results page I mentioned. So, no, I don't think think there's a second account.

Ok, the computer I see in your account appears to be a Core 2 Duo P8600 2.4GHz laptop running Windows Vista Business 32bit and an nVidia GeForce 9200M GS video card. Is that correct?

Ok, when you open BOINC Manager and click on the Projects tab, what account does it say is attached to SETI@Home?

It is attached to "1420MHz".

The table in the projects tab looks like this:

Projekt | Konto | Team | Arbeit erledigt | Durchschnit. Arbeit | ...
climateprediciton.net | 1420MHz | | 0,00 | 0,00 | ...
SETI@home | 1420MHz | | 0,00 | 0,00 | ...

Synchronization with BOINCstatsBAM! semms to work, too. At least, there is no error message when I synchronize.

Yes, this is strange

(If you really recently (a day ago) have/had SETI@Home tasks in the computer 6434029

You say something very improbable (or you are very lucky?):
"I am currently processing an Astropulse v505 WU and I finished a Seti@home WU just today"

There are only 3 Astropulse v505 tasks 'in-the-wild' ("Results out in the field"):
http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/sah_status.html

When (date) did you received those tasks?
What date is shown in "Report deadline" column in BOINC Manager - Tasks tab?

Probably they are/were too old ("timed out") and already "not usable"?
)

Tasks 0
Number of times client has contacted server 19
Last contact 24 May 2012
http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/show_host_detail.php?hostid=6434029


In BOINC Manager -> Projects tab - select SETI@Home - click [Properties] button
What is the Computer ID (is it 6434029)

***

But this is probably your older account:
http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/show_user.php?userid=1904356

... and your older computers:
http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/hosts_user.php?sort=rpc_time&rev=0&show_all=1&userid=1904356

Alright, maybe that's be the reason. The WU is already beyond its deadline (22 March 2012). Its name is ap_16dc11aa_B5_P0_00350_20120226_09587.wu.

However, I can't see any "timed out" or "not usable" message in BOINC Manager. And shouldn't my results page indicate the work units I am currently processing regardless of what their deadline is?

My computer ID is 6434029.

Yes, 1904356 is my old account. (Is there a way I can transfer my old credits to the new account?)

Abort it.
You will not receive any credit for it.
The result will be refused by "not usable" message in the "Event Log" (Ctrl+Shift+E)
(sorry, I don't remember the exact wording of "result not usable", it may be "result unusable" or similar)

It's no longer in your tasks list:
http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/results.php?hostid=6434029

This means the WU is already done OK by at least 2 other computers.

("Timed out - no response" is shown on the web (the example is Not from your computer):
http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/results.php?hostid=6379672&offset=0&show_names=0&state=5&appid=

Your expired task(s) certainly was in this state (maybe for months) but now is gone from the list
(as is already done OK by at least 2 other computers, SETI does not need your result anymore and will refuse to accept it)
)


Yes, 1904356 is my old account. (Is there a way I can transfer my old credits to the new account?)

No.
Only if you can log-in the old account you can attach your computer to it (and abandon the new account).
