I had to turn the splitters off, again. I underestimated the rate at which we were creating work (damn moveable decimal points!). I thought we could go without adding more space to the database until we had time (tomorrow morning) to delete the old database spaces.

I was wrong, we really zoomed through the files on disk, and we ran out of space. Deleting database spaces is dangerous, so I really want Jeff to check the command script before it gets run. That won't happen until morning. But once it does we'll be back in operation.

Hopefully most SETIzens won't even notice this short absence of work.

Don't worry Eric take your time, better to get it right than rush in. The faithful will still be here.

Thanks for the update. I ran out of work. I am running SETI only so my Task board is empty. Any recommendation for other projects?

Einstein is a popular backup project.

EDIT: HINT: Set Einstein project priority to 0 <zero> so it only downloads when your cache is empty or it will download a LOT of tasks.

Thanks Brent.

First check what "Location" your computers are assigned. https://einsteinathome.org/account/computers/all
Then set your Account/Project/Preferences for that location https://einsteinathome.org/account/prefs/project/edit/generic
The Resource Share is on the top, set it to 0 <zero>
I hope those links work for you. You will have to be logged in.
