thanks! got it.

ps: i think it's just a little bit creepy that hilary knows so much about me, if only because it means that more nefarious entities (like, say, american crossroads) does too. not that i'm privy to any useful intelligence, but i'll bet some people around here are..

thanks for standing up for those of us with old cruddy outdated equipment. we love SETI and are happy that our meager contributions are appreciated!

i'm getting decidedly cranky. i STILL can't edit my profile, after originally discovering the problem several months ago...

just so we're clear, i DID have an image uploaded and displaying next to my post. then one day when i looked it was gone - don't know when it happened or why.

reason given to me as to why i could not edit my profile was because my RAC had fallen below 1. well, it's above 1 now. my original image (which i wish to change) shows up on my profile page, but when i attempt to change it i am ignored. i receive no error message, nor any message at all. i am asked to enter my secret woids, and then...nuthin. so what gives? i'm tired of still looking like a complete newbie...

SOMEONE PLEASE HELP A DAMSEL IN DISTRESS!

THANKS
LENETTE

i did upload the pic to s@h and it had been displaying properly. i hadn't posted it to any of the other sites. signature was text only...

oh well, it's not a big deal. i'll just redo it. thanks for your thoughts and your help.

hey john -

thanks for the help! if you don't mind perhaps you would indulge me by answering one more question:

any idea why both my picture and my signature have gone away?

is there a way to allocate resources to allow more than 2 projects to run at one time?

also, do you have any idea why i no longer have anything showing on my 'transfers' page? it is completely empty.

i've been a member of seti for years, but today when i tried to edit my profile i received this message:

To prevent spam, an average credit of 1.0 or greater is required to create or edit a profile. We apologize for this inconvenience.

what does this mean and how do i fix it?

thnx
10) Questions and Answers : Windows : STATUS keeps showing as 'suspended' (Message 1270968)

11) Questions and Answers : Windows : STATUS keeps showing as 'suspended' (Message 1269749)
Posted 767 days ago by Profile lenette
i've been noticing this problem for a couple of months now, and i need help... when i check in BOINC mgr TASKS, my projects will show up as 'suspended - cpu is busy'. withing a few moments it usually will switch to 'running', but invariably it will return to 'suspended' again.

i am running (or trying to run) seti, climate, einstein, LHC, milky way, and rosetta. however, never are more than 3 running at a time, and sometimes only 2. i used to see ALL of them running at once.

what can i do (if anything) to improve my projects' performance?

thanks!

12) Questions and Answers : Windows : where'd my work go? (Message 1219651)
Posted 881 days ago by Profile lenette
thanks so much for the answer. in fact i just tried seti again and connected with no problem, altho now my statistics graph shows dec 69 - jan 70, so i'm a little puzzled by that. i have been participating in seti for many years but certainly not 40 years. if this problem persists i will submit another question.
thanks again,
lenette
13) Questions and Answers : Windows : where'd my work go? (Message 1218893)
Posted 883 days ago by Profile lenette
SETI appears to have stopped running, although it shows on my projects tab. it isn't showing under tasks and my statistics graph is very peculiar. it shows a very slight incline up until april 12. then it shoots almost straight up and disappears off the grid. when i took at my results page online it shows no tasks. i removed SETI and attempted to reinstall it and received the error msg 'project communication failed'. it also says 'internet access ok, project servers may be down.' however since i am running rosetta and climate and they show as 'running', i don't think project servers are the problem.

any suggestions?
14) Questions and Answers : Windows : Finally installed BOINC 5.8.16 but now seti icon gone and... (Message 566293)
Posted 2683 days ago by Profile lenette
First time after installing i got a boinc icon which gave me the install wizard. ran that and everything looked fine - climate and seti were both present and accounted for. BUT my seti icon is gone, and the only thing i have is that BOINC icon which wants to re-install BOINC rather than just start the program. what went wrong??

15) Questions and Answers : Windows : Running ClimatePr. w/Seti but only Climate getting computer time (Message 556973)
Posted 2695 days ago by Profile lenette
wow. thanks everyone - i had no idea the answer would be so complicated, but i think i understand. What i've been doing is running Climate at night with Folding. When folding runs with seti it takes all the resources, but watching it with climate, they both seem to run, but climate runs slower (about 1/2 speed).
Then during the day i suspend both and run Seti alone.

does anyone see any problems with that?]

thanks again,
Lenette

Posted 2698 days ago by Profile lenette
i don't understand...each job says 50% but seti gets no time at all unless i suspend climate. i just installed 1GB of memory so it's not that. any ideas?

thanks,

18) Questions and Answers : Windows : what do i need to do to install latest boinc version? (Message 553506)
Posted 2700 days ago by Profile lenette
i am running v. 4.43, and i'd like to install current version. i read one post that said use add/remove programs, but boinc doesn't show up there. i seem to remember that i need to uninstall something before downloading latest version, but i can't find any info in the q&A.

thanks,

19) Message boards : Number crunching : SETI IS ONLY USING 8% CPU with nothing else running (Message 475296)
Posted 2840 days ago by Profile lenette
damn!

thanks Martin, i'm sure that ultimately the problem is not enough memory. i had a more complete answer which responded to your remarks, but i wanted to check to see if BOINC was going to hijack my machine again like it did last nite, when i clicked preferences. i'm happy to report that it did not. i'm unhappy to report that it deleted everything i had typed here.

hey richard -

what if i pay for your ticket to fly over here? you talk as if i would have the foggiest idea of how to check the motherboard. i don't even know where it is. and i have no geek friends who know either. believe or not, I'M the geekiest. which means i know how to install hardware and plug components in correctly. WHEE.

i have a feeling it would be cheaper to fly you out than to call Geek Squad or some other outfit. and then god only knows how knowledgeable the 'geek' they send out really is...

you know, the chinese have a curse that goes 'may you lead an interesting life'. describes me to a 'T', unfortunately.

anyway, thanks to everyone who chipped in with ideas and help. i'm just gonna hope for the best - i'm sick of the whole thing and i'm sure everyone else is by now too.

ALSO -

when FOLDING runs (and at 100% or damn close), it has no problems AND it does not interfere with anything else i'm trying to do.

when i run SETI any more, not only does it NOT run anywhere near 100%, i cannot do ANYTHING else unless i suspend all jobs. if a job is running it totally degrades my system, and brings everything to a virtual standstill. i don't understand it. is this how it's supposed to work? i can't believe it. if i can't find someone to install more memory, i may have to give SETI up and stay with apps that behave themselves...
