from the Setiathome front page:

Keep your computer busy when SETI@home has no work - participate in other BOINC-based projects.

from Gary:
"
Will we be provided with sufficient work to carry over those dates?

Of course not! You were never promised that any work would be available. Join another project."


The above response is one of the reasons I no longer process Seti files. You beg us for money, You beg us to use or machines, and when we ask for work, we get wise A$$ answers like that. I have moved on to other projects, and have had NONE, ZERO, problems that I had with Seti, nor have I ever seen or gotten a WISE A$$ Answer like that. Keep it up . . and you will have only the HARD CORE people supporting you who , are too stubborn to leave. I left, and have never been happier.

I still like to check back once and a while so see if your “Growing pains ???” have been rectified, (they have not ). Yea yea I know you never promised any work, you just beg to use are machines . . . . for nothing !

THE KING HAS NO CLOTHES ! ! !

You are aware that Gary is not a project scientist, administrator, or anything like that. He's just another user.

You are also aware that just because you're doing other projects doesn't mean you have to stop doing Seti.

If you are aware of those two things and still want to leave, then the only thing I (also just another user) have to say is, don't let the door hit you in the electronic a$$ on your way out. (And I say that only out of concern for the door.)

Because the project can't afford to fix the door! :-)

Just highlight the uploads and select 'Retry now', they'll likely go through with a little bit of prompting,

My Situation is the opposite. I can upload completed work, but i'm not getting any new work. however, I must admit that The Current Work that II have (In Progress and Witing) is not due 5th february, 2013 ... Could this have anything to do with not receiving New work; even though I have only 4 Tasks (including the 1 that is Running) ?

If they run as poorly as Seti, when it is having one of its fits, that would be a toss up. Today, I have been crunching my backside off and I keep getting serious lags before it will take the work done. What are you brainiacs doing? Are there any Republicans from DC in the bunch. Might explain a few things.

What is a problem really? IMO, I had no problems at all with SETI either. True, there are occasional hick ups, but as I see it they are problems for SETI and the guys in charge there, not for me. When they take too long like the whole week down end last month / begin this month, other projects happily get some more work done, no big deal. Anyway, that´s how I see it.

Coming back on the thread, thanks for the warnings. It´s nice to know up front that something will be happening.

Hey, Seti is non political, and always has been. If Seti is not for you then so be it. There are many other worthwhile Boinc projects. We wish you well.

They are from California, land of Moonbeams.

If you want a always up project join http://lhcathomeclassic.cern.ch/sixtrack/ or http://orbit.psi.edu/oah/ Grab all the work units you can! Now if you want a different kind of project, one that has lots of server crashes try http://climateprediction.net/ or http://milkyway.cs.rpi.edu/milkyway/. They will keep you in work. Now for a project you need to really babysit try http://lhcathome2.cern.ch/test4theory/ Real good science on that one, but it may not play well on windoze boxes.


BTW, if you don't want sarcastic answers, don't ask sarcastic questions, especially ones that have been asked and answered a 1000 times before.

I love the BOINC project SETI@home.
My PC/s will calculate SETI@home tasks as long as SETI@home exists.

'The admins' don't have the equipment & 'manpower' to let run the project 365 days/year - so that no 'problem' occurs.
'The admins' do their best - and this is very appreciated.
'The admins' work at/for SETI@home in their free time. They don't get money for their time & work.

SETI@home is a nonprofit educational and research organization that relies significantly on 'donations' to continue operations.

They don't make tasks for to make us happy.
They let run this project for the science, for to search extraterrestrial intelligence.

If here or there are currently no SETI@home tasks available, you don't want that you PC idle, you could join also other 'BOINC projects' (a small selection) for times like these.
Set SETI@home 100 % resource share in BOINC.
The other projects 0 %.
If no SETI@home tasks are in BOINC, BOINC ask at the other projects for tasks.

SETI@home was the first BOINC project. Because of SETI@home the BOINC software exist.

SETI@home have the most active members compared with the other BOINC projects.
No wonder, why other projects should run so smoothly (allegedly). My experiences are different.

O.K., Earth's population - please calm down, think now a 2nd time about ..
What should think the extraterrestrial intelligence about us? ;-)

By the way ..
For the future - please no ranting in the 'News' or 'Technical News' subforum.
For this we have the 'Number Crunching' or the 'Cafe'. ;-)

Thanks for your time.

You might want to check this discussion out next time there is an outage here and you are feeling lost because you can't find the post button.
http://boinc.berkeley.edu/dev/forum_thread.php?id=8105
Of course this is also on a computer at the SSL so it will be down during the Jan 4-6 power outage, but perhaps for less time than Seti is down.

.....and here I thought Community Forums were for open discussion - not a place to complain about 'Free' services being offered. You must know that any message received was created hundreds, even thousands of years ago - so, what's the rush?
By-the-by, it's not 'your' "BONC" (spelling - BOINC), rather, you are a Volunteer - please be grateful for the thousands of hours of work provided by others [they really are not out to get you]. Try saying thank-you for the efforts of others. Yes, you really should try saying "Thank You". ~Sailor

-----in response to the following Post-----

My BONC wont upload packages back to server? Is there any reason, or what? Stop uploading when we go to 2013. Let me know guys =)

What about prior to that time frame. I am sitting with files that are done and no input of new work. My other pc is on the last 2 files and then no work. Whats up? Haven't had any new work since yesterday.
