Hi guys, im new here and im really interested in helping but im pretty confused as of now lol. when i open my BOINC manager it shows "downloading work from the server" for SETI@home. This is not the only project i have downloaded but i went to my account and looked at projects and it showed i had one. I thought maybe it just isnt showing and it will work when my screen saver goes on, but it says i have no projects. Am i supposed to wait or is their something wrong? please help! :)

As you can see here , you've received 4 workunits. These should have downloaded prior to the power failure earlier today, and should be in your tasks list. depending on your other projects, one or more of the S@H workunits might be running, but in any case, they will all run eventually and be uploaded and reported to the project.

As you can see here , you've received 4 workunits from the project. One has been completed and returned, validated, and credit issued. The other three are "in progress". Everything is as it should be.

Hello, I need help viewing my account certificate of completion. Every time I click on the link to view it I get a web page of garbled characters and code. Does anyone know why this is happening? I would appreciate if someone can help clarify that. Thank you very much

You found a newly introduced bug, this page was working a few months ago:
http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/cert_print.php

I tested on Win 98 + Opera 10.10

I don't see any "garbled characters", I see some (PHP?) code.
Appears to be PHP - it ends with ?> but misses <?php in the beginning:
http://www.w3schools.com/php/php_syntax.asp

Some part of the code was deleted by mistake?:

Show SETI@home/BOINC credit
Show SETI@home Classic credit "; } function sah_credit_string($user, $bolden) { $show_boinc = $_GET["show_boinc"]; $show_classic = $_GET["show_classic"]; $cobbs = number_format($user->total_credit, 0); credit_to_ops($user->total_credit, $ops, $unit); if ($bolden) { $lbold="[["; $rbold="]]"; } else { $lbold=""; $rbold=""; }
.........
$firstWordOfLine = $lastWordOfLine; $actualWidth = 0; $wordSize = 0; $initLineFont = $currentFont; // save current font } } ?>



Looking at the page source it looks like this:
<? 

function show_credit_checkboxes() {
    echo "
        <br>
        <input type=checkbox name=show_boinc checked> Show SETI@home/BOINC credit
        <br>
        <input type=checkbox name=show_classic> Show SETI@home Classic credit
    ";
}

function sah_credit_string($user, $bolden) {
    $show_boinc = $_GET["show_boinc"];
    $show_classic = $_GET["show_classic"];

    $cobbs = number_format($user->total_credit, 0);

    credit_to_ops($user->total_credit, $ops, $unit);

    if ($bolden) {
        $lbold="[[";
        $rbold="]]";
    } else {
        $lbold="";
        $rbold="";
    }
..........
