Let me rephrase that. Is there away to combine the seti@home/AstroPulse beta (phone app) and my regular seti@home (computer) to the same accounts. I mean they are both on the same name and email or is that not possible at this time?

This may not be the correct place to ask this . If not i do apologize, but! How do we find the stats from our phone app? I know you can see them on the phone, but i would think they would be added to our account here or no? Am i missing something? lol


Thank you

What does this mean??????????

Your probably having problem contacting the Seti servers. They have been having intermitent problems today. The reference site it Google. Boinc pings it to check if it has access to the internet when it can't contact a project server.



Thanks again :-D

Your results are checked against 2 other users to see if it was crunched properly.
I checked your account and the other 3 people that received the same WU returned invalid results so the WU has been reissued on the 2nd of August to 3 new people. This means that there will be a longer delay than normal before your result which appears to be good will have a chance to be verified and credits given.



I noticed rosetta in your list of bionic projects. What is rosetta?

10) Questions and Answers : Windows : could not upload the result (Message 386747)
Posted 2966 days ago by Profile Claude Taylor
It says on the status page that the upload/Download server is up


Software diagnostics isn't always correct!
Computers often LOOK like they're ok, but operate slowly, and need to be rebooted. If you're running any form of Windows, you will have no doubt noticed this. :)



All i can say to "If you're running any form of Windows, you will have no doubt noticed this." Is: lol! hahahahaaaa! True so true.

How long does it usually take for WU to show up in your account. I have sent in a work unit but it seems i havent gotten credit for it yet.

It can take up to 2 weeks, or more, depending on may things. Credits in Boinc are done on a consensus basis. No more you automatically get credit if you send in a unit. If the work you do is not Scientificaly valuable, you do not get credit for it. Makes sense to me, sense this is a Science project.
The wiki, a sort of cross between a dictionary and an enclopedia, for Boinc is here http://boinc-wiki.ath.cx/index.php?title=Main_Page.
It is searchable and almost 1300 pages long.




Thank you for your response and answer to my question.


Ya'lls thoughts on this. The only way that a unit can be valuable is if it has signs of extraterrestrial intellegence(scientifically valuable). so therefore everyone should get credit for turning units whether it shows signs of extraterrestrial intellegence or not, or every credit that is granted means that those units have evidence for alien intellegence. As i said above this is a search for extraterrestrial intellegence, if only the valuable units get credit then noone should have any credits, except the units that show proof of E.T.I.. Since there are hundreds of thousands of credited units, that means there should be hundreds if not thousands of possible intellegent signals. Then why hasnt anyone confirmed these possibles???????????????????????

The problem was at Berkeley and has been solved. Per the Tech news page...

"August 2, 2006 - 17:30 UTC
We had to bring down the project briefly to reboot the upload server. Once in a while it loses random NFS mounts, this time resulting in the inability for the assimilator to insert into the science database, and for results to be uploaded in general."



OK then how come my WU hasnt been posted or how long does it take to post a work unit after its has been uploaded?

About the upload port that BOINC uses: I'm not positive, but since it was an HTTP error, I'm guessing TCP Port 80. I have no firewall enabled, and I've used things like Bittorrent and MUSH clients on this machine before, so I don't think that's the problem.

To me, it looks like whatever server takes the results is not working. If anyone has been able to upload results recently, please post here saying so.

15) Questions and Answers : Windows : Getting Credit for Classic Units (Message 386207)
Posted 2966 days ago by Profile Claude Taylor
Actually, your Classic workunits are recognized and are visible...I checked before I wrote this. If you go to the "Your Account" section of the website you will see them there referenced as Classic Hours and Classic Units. The old and the new stats will NEVER be merged: the two systems use a completely different algorithm to grant credit and are incompatible. They will always be reported separately.



Ok! Cool! I understand. Thanx for your help :-D

I have a problem with my SETI units.
My problem is that I was part of SETI classic, I took the steps to get my classic units recognized with my new units but! Everyday I check and all I see are my new units. I have over 4,000 unit nearly 5,000. I am proud of my seti units and would like the SETI community to see this. Please help!


Thank you
