This modification works great for updating the SETI work units, but I've noticed that my upload speed has greatly diminished with it. The ISP limits my uploads to 125kB, but now I'm only getting just under 20 kB, and my FTP server isn't accessible at all. I guess I'll have to undo the mods. If anyone has any ideas what other setting change may correct this, I'd appreciate it.

If all is set right, it will process 24 units simultaneously with just one BOINC install, and even another unit or two using the video card's processor.

I remember when finishing a work unit was quite an accomplishment back in those days. Now we can knock out dozens a day.

Still no joy on getting more work units. Got those 44 a few days ago, and nothing since.

That opens to this forum. The one I had opened to this page....

http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/tech_news.php

Thanks for that! There's an RSS link at the bottom of the page but it opens to an error page.

I used to have an RSS feed that showed only the Technical News. It seems to have been lost during the recent upgrade. The main SETI News RSS is working fine. Would it be possible to restore this sometime soon? Thanks!

Thanks BilBg. Trend did try to block it, and I placed it on the 'approved' list. I replaced the one in the folder which was only 9kB. Time will tell, once I get another AP download.

I would be delighted to just download some AstroPulse files that would run! Every one shows completion in the Transfers tab, but the Tasks list always says 'Download failed'.

Running all other WU's in Seti and Einstein with no problems.
