There must have been some spelling mistakes because my translation sure didn't make any sense.



it could be, because all of the text is written without any polish signs (as we call it letters with tails;) )

I think the best way to deal with it is to mail the admins with the translation of the Polish text.


yes, but i couldn't find any email to project administrator ( i thought, they don't make them public, because they don't want to get hundreds of emails everyday)

and the translation is
Personal background
Lecze sie na Oddziale Zamknietym i wam gwarantuje, ze siostra, ktora sie mna zajmuje to przybysz z kosmosu.

I'm treating myself on closed section (at psychiatric hospital) and I guarantee that nurse (sister) who is looking after me, is an alien.

Thoughts about SETI and SETI@home
Szukam starszych panow

I'm looking for old males.

So as you can see it does not make big sense..

I've found account that, i think, was created only to offend some other user.

this is link to that profile

it is all writen in polish, and it's not in good taste. i have suspicion that this account was created by cracovian
to offence my friend

some time ago they had an argument and it might have been sort of revenge, which should not be tolerated in our community.

please investigate this problem and make any step.

yeah, right! some unexperienced users, on many forums are asking:

"hey, guys! i've opened task manager, and i have one question... what is idle process (proces bezczynnoœci)? IT'S GETTING 100% OF MY CPU!"

so why are we talking about searching for some specific files like client_state.xml?

but wouldn't it be much more safer and easier (for users) to add to BOINC special codes that would make it anuseful, when installed with different name than boinc.exe or in different location than drive:\\program files\\BOINC, or even more simply, and allowing everyone more free play (but not too much), drive:\\...\\...\\BOINC\\ ????

maybe it would be a good idea to include to BOINC software some protection option, that won't let processing any BOINC application if there is no folder called projects, or file boincmgr.exe, or even boinc.exe...

it would not make cheating impossible, but for sure it would make it harder, and easier to detect...



or not... reading that forum more carefuly, i found, that there were all BOINC/seti folders...

but then maybe there should be some special codes, that would make, changing name of boinc.exe this file completely unuseful...

7) Questions and Answers : Wish list : improvement of BOINC (Message 222769)
Posted 3189 days ago by Profile bartsob5
if there is anyone, who can do it, this is my proposition.

In my opinion BOINC should have an option, giving chance to hundreds of computers not being connected with internet. i'd like to propose that boinc should be able to read (on its own) data form for example FDD drive. Then there would be necessery only one computer connected to internet, and having BOINC-mother program, which would download workunits, newer versions of applications, and writing it to a FDD drive or flash memory. On computers which, are not connected to computer there should be also an option to export any data, if need (e.g. benchmarks, version of application) and of course results of WU being crunched.

Is it executable in general?
i'm looking forward for your opinions at this topic..
8) Questions and Answers : Windows : boing 5,22 and its password for remote control (Message 182946)
Posted 3252 days ago by Profile bartsob5
i've been running boinc on my 2 machines connected by LAN. few days ago i upgraded boinc version to 5,22 on computer which i want to control from the 'master' host where is boinc v4,68. unfortunatelly i can't connect to that host, because boinc v5.22 is requesting password, which i dont know. before i had upgraded it, i could fill in only ip adress and click ok button.
do you have any proposition how can i get or create this password?
9) Questions and Answers : Wish list : error on seti website -> translation (Message 165556)
Posted 3299 days ago by Profile bartsob5
i don't know whether someone is reading it, and can fix it, but on seti website, which is translated into polish there are some spelling mistakes... so:
instead stwyrz konto there should be 'stwórz konto'
instead ksigkarnia there should be 'ksiêgarnia'
instead tablice ogioszec there should be 'tablice og³oszeñ'
instead zespoiy there should be 'zespo³y'
instead tiumaczenie there should be 't³umaczenie'
eventualy instead of polish letters here can be only standart latin letters:
³=l ó=o ±=a ê=e ñ=n
of course i could have fix it on my own, but i'm not so good at informatics
10) Questions and Answers : Windows : on boinc version >4.35 isn't downloading new WU (Message 116445)
Posted 3402 days ago by Profile bartsob5
now i've got boinc version 4,44. it isn't downloading any WU from either seti, einstein, nor proteinpredictor. now i'm running only WU from climateprediction. Last time, when it was, i just install newer version of boinc, but now (from 4.43 to 4.44) it doesn't work...
if anyone understand what am i saying and say what do to, i'll be very gratefull;)
