Problems with timeouts will continue to occur, but less frequently, we hope.

thanks for the fix partial though it maybe, good luck with the rest of it.
two questions though, with even a modest gpu speeding up older systems several hundred percent
will we be seeing more gpu compatible work unit's and how will this effect problems like we are having now?

I don't get it. What is it with all these power outages over there?

The last two power outages that I've experienced here in Germany, have been about 10 and 25 years ago. And they only lasted some minutes. :)

Quite frankly I don't see how you get anything done! Priority #1 should be a fail-safe program that would involve some sort of emergency backup!!!! At least A.T.&T. sees to it that any program that involves as much as S.E.T.I. has many fail-safe options. You probably would have paid for it with all the down time you have incurred since I've joined! Next you should get a programmer that knows what the heck he is doing! I cannot believe the amount of time lost due to software issues. S.E.T.I. has effectively been offline since the latter part of November. Can you imagine the uproar if A.T.&T. had been off-line as much as S.E.T.I. has been? By the way, in case you did not know it, all of A.T.&T. is electronic, or in other words computers. All the Area Codes, first three digits, and then local numbers, are computer driven. There are no mechanical switches left!! So imagine what telephone service would be like if A.T.&T. allowed their computers to be as messed up as yours!?!? So your working on a shoestring! Okay. I would rather you be down while you got a backup program (and got it together with software) than be teased! Sorry guys! But I don't let my P.C. to fall into such a mess. But then I've worked with computers since 1980 and worked for Ma Bell for 26 of those years. I'm used to superior quality!

Paganswyrd, I'm so glad you are willing to do all that work and buy all that equipment on a budget of $10k a year.

Hmmm, is Seti being compared again against a commercial outfit with plenty of money? Is this being done again by a joker that in fact invented the personal home computer and therefore knows everything better than those know-nothings at the project?

When will people learn to read the front page, where it says: Keep your computer busy when SETI@home has no work - participate in other BOINC-based projects.

But no, "nag nag nag, complain complain complain. I know better than you guys how you should do things. I'll prove it by forking Seti into a full-fledged commercial outfit that does work." ... don't you?

Seti is open source. Nothing much that stands in your way to go out and prove that you can do it better. Well, nothing but your big mouth, that is.

And before you fall into the pitfall of UPS systems that people think should run for more than 20 minutes, read all about them. Now that you're warned, go and do it better. Hmmmm? :-)

Paganswyrd, your comparison is a nonsense. How can you confront the biggest American company of telecommunications (more 300.000 employees and billions of dollars of revenue) with the scientific project SETI@home ? Don't forget that SETI@home is a scientific project with non-lucrative purpose and that you pay no subscription. The contribution of each of the members is based on the voluntary service. It's thus necessary to compare what is comparable. Any proportions were kept, I'm certain that the staff of the project SETI@home cares more about its members than the AT&T company. And what realizes the tiny staff of the project with the tiny budget which it has is already considerable. This is why it's important that the members who have the means made a donation ($10 minimum). Advancing the SETI@home project needs determination and self-sacrifice sometimes, the qualities of the project members and all the staff. And I'm sure they're also yours. Stay with us.

Can you imagine how A.T.&T would run if it had to accommodate power users and

regular users with left overs and donations from a public that demanded the

service but didn't want to pay for it and could not be compelled too.
