If they would at least communicate more ...

In this case: What's the problem? What do they need to make it better? Something like that?
It's a quarter to seven in the morning in San Francisco. You expect someone to be working on things and communicating that to you at that time?
2) Questions and Answers : Windows : No Work to be Done (Message 1913472)

Post:
a) there's no work to be had from Arecibo;
b) so no Astropulse either;
c) the splitters are off line for Breakthrough Listen, the only place where work's to be had;

So that's why there's no work, other than the occasional resent.
Keep an eye out on https://setiathome.berkeley.edu/show_server_status.php, once Current result creation rate for Seti@Home v8 increases to more than just 0.4/sec, you'll know the splitters are working again.

Post:
According to your computers, you have a RAC of 101, your task list shows you have work in progress and validated/credited. So you are running Seti already. Is it possible you didn't notice?

You may be missing the screen saver, but that doesn't work under Linux without extra help, and even then, perhaps not.
I suspect your friend installed BOINC as a daemon (starts automatically as soon as you start the computer) from Ubuntu repository. So it'll start silently, in the background.
7) Questions and Answers : Web site : Valid work units vanished (Message 1912683)
Posted 5 days ago by Profile Ageless
Post:
It's impossible to keep all work forever in the BOINC database, it is already several terabytes as it is. So all validated work has one copy of itself put into the scientific database and all its copies in the BOINC database are removed 24 hours after validating.

So no one thinks of putting this whole error into Google and see what it comes up with?

Anyway, check S.M.A.R.T., see if anything's out of the ordinary

Make sure that If no work for selected applications is available, accept work from other applications? is also unchecked, else you get exactly that. Make sure you use the correct venue as well.
14) Questions and Answers : Windows : cant log in (Message 1911247)

You do not log in to the forums (or the server) via BOINC Manager.
When you see the message that the password is incorrect in BOINC Manager, then this is the password that allows you to control BOINC Manager and it having contact between itself and the BOINC client. It's something completely different from forums log in.

When you see this message in BOINC Manager, first check that both the client (boinc.exe) and the manager (boincmgr.exe) are running. You can check that in Windows Task Manager.
If only BOINC Manager is running, exit it, wait 30 seconds, then restart it. That should also start the client.
If you here still have the message, exit BOINC completely and then navigate to your BOINC data directory (default in Windows at C:\Programdata\BOINC) and remove the gui_rpc_auth.cfg file. Then restart BOINC.
If that didn't fix it, add an inbound and outbound rule in Windows firewall for boincmgr.exe and boinc.exe, or if you use a different firewall in that. If necessary to give it a port number, use 31416.

From https://newsroom.intel.com/news-releases/industry-testing-shows-recently-released-security-updates-not-impacting-performance-real-world-deployments/

As Intel and others across the industry partner to protect customers from the exploits (referred to as “Spectre” and “Meltdown”) reported Wednesday, extensive testing has been conducted to assess any impact to system performance from the recently released security updates. Apple, Amazon, Google and Microsoft are among those reporting that they are seeing little to no performance impact.

Don't use comments in the XML files. While they are XML files, they're especially made for BOINC and adding comments can break them. If you need to, use <!--- this is a comment --> style commenting on its own line.

If you do not want to use Astropulse at all, go to your account (click your name in the top right corner), then Preferences for this project, Edit preferences, uncheck Astropulse, Update preferences, the next time BOINC contacts the project it will get those prefs in.

There's no need for a cc_config.xml file here to exclude your GPUs because you do not have them detected by BOINC.
Even if they get detected, you can go through those same Preferences for this project to uncheck Use NVIDIA GPU. Way easier than swapping cc_config.xml files.

As for anything with Gridcoin and wallets and cryptocurrencies, ask about that on the Gridcoin forums. There's not many people here using them, or interested enough in them to help you figure out what to do about your predicament with them.

18) Questions and Answers : Preferences : Can we use the GPU (though tiny) of for Raspberry Pi? (Message 1909646)
Posted 18 days ago by Profile Ageless
Post:
No, because it doesn't have an OpenCL implementation, and while VC4CL is being developed, it's nowhere near complete. Aside from that, I doubt most Pi owners want their GPU to all of a sudden do calculations here, because of heat problems and lack of adequate cooling.

Hi there,
Most people here run Seti for the science, or to be paid in credits, not to be paid in Gridcoins or other cryptocurrency. For the how to on linking your wallet to your account, you'll have to ask at the pool you joined. That's where the people will be who have done it before and have that knowledge.
