I am curious, not hostile. I have been running SETI since 1999. The old Seti used to run great, never any problems and I could store enough units to keep going when the servers did crash. Now I am about ready to take it off my system. It seems SETI is down more than up lately. Is it Seti or Boinc that is the problem? Is it ever going to be fixed? It just seems the "better" the program gets the worse it performs.

The computer in question is a laptop that I turn off and move around a lot so I do not have much in the way of messages to show.

The filter is St. Bernard Internet filter in place at my work. It limits where you can go but Seti is not affected. However, I must sign in every two hours or it disconnects until i sign in again...

I never had this problem running the old Seti. I must admit I am not a big Bionic Fan. Everything used to run smoothly. Now I can't get downloads for all different reasons. Over limit, servers down or whatever. Old Seti just purred along for years without one glitch.

Here is what I have as far as messages:

Could a spam file=ter with a two hour limit be the cause if the computer is on 24/7?

I keep getting messages stating I have exceeded either 25, 35 or 50 units. Why is this and why do I always get different limits? Also, any idea why the slowest of my computers is always the one to "over process?

I have been a member since May 99 and never got these messages until recently. I don't wnat to be limited on what i can process! I need input...input.

The limit is 100/day/CPU and it is reduced by 1 every time you return a bad result. This is to prevent a rogue computer from draining the queue of WU on the server. It doubles for every good results up to the limit. If you look at the results for that computer you will find a lot of client errors. I think that system may be having problems. First thing I'd look at is overheating due to dust accumulating on fans or heatsink. Possibly a bad memory stick. It definitely needs to be looked into. Seti can often work as an early warning system of something breaking down on a computer.

EDIT: A second look indicates that the problem appears to be with downloading the WU ?????[/quote]
