Bill, thank you very much! This seems to have finally solved the problem. Now getting work units for all 3 projects, have available disc space for BOINC and not (yet) getting memory needed messages. Thanks again!

Thank you for your response. Two things stand out: first, my disk space graphic (sorry, can't figure out how to post a picture here) only has 3 lines of text in top left section under header Total Disc Usage, not 4. The missing line is: "Free, available to BOINC."

Secondly, your 3rd graphic shows a dialogue box with tabs for Processor Usage, Network Usage and Disc and Memory Usage; I can find no such dialogue box anywhere, so I am unable to clear anything.

I really appreciate your ongoing attempts to help me figure out the problem. I apologize for being so slow.

OK, I've done everything indicated, problem persists. For the record, receiving error messages such as:

"SETI@home: Notice from server
AstroPulse v6 needs 60.00MB more disk space. You currently have 0.00MB available and it needs 60.00MB."

I'm getting the same message for SETI@home. I'm also running Rosetta, no error messages yet.

HP Envy, I7, 6-core processor, 2TB hard drive, BOINC version 7.2.42, wxWidgets version 2.8.10.

Now, I'm not receiving any AstroPulse or Seti@Home work units.

Thank you, HAL9000. I have updated my preferences to those given in your first example. Your explanation was concise, coherent and very easy to understand, and I thank you.

Further questions: I note in the preferences there are other changeable values:

Suspend work when non-BOINC CPU usage is above
0 means no restriction
Enforced by version 6.10.30+ % (my current value is 50%)

On multiprocessors, use at most processors (my current value is 2)
On multiprocessors, use at most
Enforced by version 6.1+ % of the processors (my current value is 100)
Use at most
Can be used to reduce CPU heat % of CPU time (my current value is 100)

Swap space: use at most % of total (my current value is 75)
Memory: when computer is in use, use at most % of total (my current value is 50)
Memory: when computer is not in use, use at most % of total (my current value is 90)

I have no clue what these are talking about. Any suggestions here? Again, thank you very much for your help.

I keep getting messages that state, for instance: "SETI@home v7 needs 32.00MB more disc space. You currently have 0.00 MB available and it needs 32.00 MB."

I'm getting these messages daily now. Using HP Envy, Win 8.1, Intel I7 6 core processor. I processing for 3 projects: Einstein, Rosetta and SETI. Hard drive is 2TB, each project has 6GB disc space dedicated.

I'm a youthfully challenged, gastronomically unstable (O.F.) user who is not very sophisticated tech-wise. Can anyone tell me in simple words what the problem, and solution, is? Thanks.

By the by, for those of you wondering what to do until the new servers are up and running, there are a number of BOINC projects that could use some help. On the BOINC main page there is a link to some of the other projects available (there are 20 others listed). So if you've a mind to, by all means run other projects. Myself, I have Einstein and Rosetta keeping my box occupied...

10) Message boards : Cafe SETI : Nuclear Energy Debate (Message 320536)
Posted 3018 days ago by Profile Bill Price
For reference, read Waldo & Magic, Inc. by Robert Heinlein. Until such time as we can draw energy from alternate universes, it seems to be that nuclear energy, properly done, is the best alternative we have. I haven't looked to see if they've (the U.S. DoD) ever stated what the problem with the U.S.S. Thresher was (reactor meltdown? playing tag with a Russian sub?), but outside of that I think the U.S. Navy has never had a problem using nuclear power for their fleet. My belief is the problems we've all heard about (Chernobyl, Three Mile Island) have more to do with private sector problems. I've thought for a long time we should do nuclear energy in a big way, and let the Navy run it.

Or to quote Dennis Miller: "That's just my opinion; I could be wrong."

Like an idiot I aborted the upload of several work units, so when they reported I didn't get credit (sure hope E.T. wasn't in one of them!!!) Now that they've turned off the downloader I won't be getting any more BOINC work until they get it all sorted out. Well, there's still Einstein....
