1) Message boards : Number crunching : Observation of CreditNew Impact (Message 1382313)
Posted 400 days ago by Profile Yonaton
Every time a new version comes out its the same story. Every time Dr A. changes the way credit is granted its still the same story. Some peolpe quit, Most complain.

The way I see it, Credit is just a usefull tool to see how your own rig is doing. I tweak this, add that, overclock this, And hey I just got a little better RAC.

It could be like the old classic days. You get one credit for each work unit you do.

As for myself, I will crunch till Seti@home turns off the power or I die first.

Screw the credit.


That works!

I mean hell, one's gotta be one whiny baby to worry so much when you *know* that it's all going to average out again *anyway*. Hell...the slow computers are slowing down also, so what's the BFD?!

@msattler - You should post War & Peace next time.

@big pic posters in general - There's still folk who are on dial-up that really are trying to help seti@home, but when they run into stuff like big pic's and book-length posts, it's disheartening and especially so when they really, really want to ask for help or even post a few lines and be as inane as too many on the forums who forget they have fat pipes and tend to go overboard with what they post. Yeah, 216Kb don't seem like nothin' - to someone with dsl or satellite - but get your butt's back on dial-up and let's see you *NOT* complain about many of the things posted that just don't have to be.

It's okay to hate me now for being so brutally honest...I'm used to it since most people I've run into simply can't handle honesty and my kind of honesty especially (in other words, don't ask me what I think of what you're wearing or how you look or if your car is shiny enough if you don't want to hear anything but sugar-coated white lies).
3) Message boards : Number crunching : What model/brand of UPS are you using (Message 1342776)
Posted 506 days ago by Profile Yonaton
BackUPS Pro 500. It's old as dirt but works beautifully and my battery lasts almost exactly 5 years +/- a week or two, and where I live is out in the woods and our power lines and poles are old, old, old so we are constantly getting small and short brownouts and blackouts and during big storms it's pretty much a guarantee to lose power for an hour or five. This UPS has saved my system many a time and the app for linux I use, apcupsd, works perfectly too.
4) Questions and Answers : Unix/Linux : Where or what has this? (Message 1230482)

Thanks guys. Looks like I'd also need to install a newer gtk+ (and all the deps for it) and I'm on dialup so it just isn't worth all the hassle just to run a newer version of BOINC when this older one is working fine. Appreciate the help though, thanks again.

This is the message I get on Slackware 13.37 with the 7.0.27 BOINC:

-----
./boincmgr: error while loading shared libraries: libnotify.so.4: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
-----

What package has this libnotify.so.4? Until that gets figured out, 6.12.34 is working fine, I just hate all the time the 'notices' I keep getting to download the latest.

No, there is a problem on the server side in the moment.


Okay, that's what I was thinking. Just wanted to make sure it wasn't something wrong with my system. Thanks Dotsch!!

Anyone else not able to upload finished tasks? I've got 3 now in line to be uploaded, and even when I click on 'retry communications' I can see something happen for a second or two but nothing gets uploaded.
