1) Questions and Answers : Web site : no units to download (Message 1195384)

Turns out you are quite correct about the number of units. Sort of confusing, bearing in mind that this machine covers some 15k of credits. All this for just 5 units seems a bit odd. Once again: this started only about a week ago. I never got these readings before, didn't change any settings, and it's the same host after all. And: applies to Win only - at least as of today. Guess I'll just hang in there waiting to see how the next units are going to do - give or take 3 or 4 days from now.

?? Looking at my stats, it ought to be clear I've done just a few more then 10 units over the years. However, the issue seems to exist on windoze only. Debian never reported such timings. On the contrary, Debian still doesn't get new units. The image link to a screenshot I've just taken verifies my numbers. One of the last units - aprox. a week ago, and both of those received this evening are indicating times 100+ hours. I'm fairly sure it's the units, not my system, nor any fancy new algorithm.

Um, any idea what kind of units are /these/? Average processing was between 6 and 8 hours per unit. Lately I seem to be getting monster packs with processing times soaring up to well over 100 hours each. Anyone seeing the same? Didn't touch the settings.

Seems to have been fixed. At least one machine is fetching new wu's again.

Hi all, not sure if this ought to go here but since the topic reads SETI website... Anybody else having this /problem/ or is just me? There don't seem to be more units. Started a few days ago when my Debian box didn't get anymore: Project has no tasks available. What gives? Any ideas? Regards, Peter Heinrich Claus.

Well, it seems, I'm answering myself :)
However, the only way, I could get BOINC working after my time-out, was to install a 5x version. That one is running without problems. I have just posted this here: http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/forum_thread.php?id=66184

Hi all, just thought, this might help someone with similar problems. A while ago, I had installed the latest client, but if refused to connect. The issue was the same on Win 7, Vista, XP. So I went to fetch one of the older 5x builds, and that's working like a charm. Regards, Peter Heinrich Claus.

Didn't really put a thought in having trouble on my end.
Just got back in, trying to connect. Pretty much the same.

If it's patience, they want, a coffee-shop would be ok.
I had thought, it was some number crunching, though.

Never mind, will try again tomorrow. Either it connects,
or uninstalls; as easy, as.

Hi all, after quite a while. The issue: After some 3 years of inactivity, I jusy went to fetch the latest BM for win (7-32-u). Installing, ok, reboot, ok. Now, the only reply I get, is communication deferred. Any ideas, anyone? -tia-

well, i know about other boinc projects, but thanks for the dvice anyway ;-) okay, so i went to the same cafe again today, right now to be precise, and guess what? yep, all but one unit have left my machine to join the server. i guess, the second advice was the more apropriate: atience is the name ;-) thanks for your responses, the problem seems to be solved.

hi all, i am currently in mexico and was wondering why i can not upload any results anymore. once in a while the server will give me one or two more units to crunch, but never i get to send the finished units. i am running boinc on my lap, using xp home. could it probably be because of wpa security? while in germany i did not have any such problems. any ideas anyone?
