The servers are behaving in their usual manner - badly...



Some people are suffer from being unable to up/down load any work, while others are having no problems.

They're not offline, but they are having lots of trouble. Sit back and don't fret over it. If you want, add another project to your Boinc so you're still doing something for someone somewhere [but give it a low resource share so that when Seti work gets through to you again your computer will give most of its effort to that ;-) ]

ah thanks, seems like I am one of those suffering the problems then.

So the PC is getting a rest, with no units to crunch.

... And the others (plus those having partial success) are sufficient to keep the Cricket graph showing the download pipe fully occupied.

I have some hosts without work but if I go to see them here http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/results.php?hostid=5381180 I see that they have 3323 task in progress.
Other case is this http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/results.php?hostid=6334665 (no work but 86 running.
Other hosts are going to finish work.
Of course I cannot get any new job if seti is thinking that I have what I don't have ...

For a time (not sure how long, but I hope it wasn't more than a couple of days) they had turned off lost-task-resends. That's how you built up a bunch of work the server thought you had that you didn't really (we call them ghosts). But, if you're requesting the same kind of work, you should be getting them now (if you ever have successful work requests at all).

Two hosts, an i7 + 2 ati 5870 GPUs and a C2Q6600+gtx470, have work.
And my LT has had 1 AstroPulse.... taking 40 hours while a ATI 5870 GPU does
it in 40 minutes.

And SETI BĂȘta ofcoarse, almost always work.
