41) Questions and Answers : Getting started : No work from project (Message 4938)

This is just driving me nuts because I guess the thing that SETI BOINC doesn't realise is that some of us still live on a modem, and can't wait on the phone line for 24+ hours in line for a darn wu! That's what I like about SETI Classic... if you need it, you can dial up and have it.

Ok, sorry, I understand about the shortage and all, but people like me are being left in the dust and may never see a wu in our lives *_* !

Sorry again (& peace),
Eric

Hey, have anyone with a Mac been successful with downloading a wu with BOINC? If you have or haven't, could you post your general prefs settings, how many wu you've downloaded (if you have), your Mac/OS, & connection type, and see if it could help the rest of us Macies be successful in getting this thing to work (& start downloading wu :p )?

Best wishes to SETI & the future,
Eric

wu downloaded: 0
wu completed: 0

44) Message boards : Number crunching : @Berkeley Team_STOP THE PROJECT at this time to much Error in all Things (Message 4309)

Well, I did some more tinkering, and this is what I have in my prefs:

Keep enough work on disk to last between
0.1 and 1 days

On multiprocessors, use at most
1 processors

Write to disk at most every
60 seconds

Use no more than
5 GB

Leave at least
0.01 GB

Use no more than
90% of total space

...because I only have 10Gb free on my Powerbook right now, and since I'm using a modem here in China *_* until August, so I want to save telephone time & room for photos on my HD.

But this time around, I must have done something right 'cause now it no longer gives me the same old 'not enough room' error message, it now gives me "no work from project"... which looks to be the bigger problem in the Mac community via the Questions and Help page.

*sigh* Oh well, I guess I'll just wait some more ~_~ heheh :p . Thanks for your help guys ^_^ !

I still as of yet have been able to download 1 wu from Berkeley... always "not enough disk space" even though I try everyone's suggestions in my preferences to correct this for my Mac. I just want to see how Boink works with seti, I'm not in it for the numbers.

There's still things to be worked out with Boink, so just be patient (like I have... ever since downloading Boink from day one of the release :p *waves flag of help to Berkeley* heheh).

Peace,
Eric

I've tried many different settings day after day on disk space to get at least ONE wu downloaded, but I seem to never to have enough disk space... on my AlBook G4 of all things (or so the "command-line" tells me so - oh whoopty-do)!!! It seems like while everyone else is happily chomping away on wu's (on Windows clients, maybe ^_~ ???), something totally different just isn't working here in the Mac world. Man, don't go GM with Boink until you can get all the bugs worked out! Oh well, I'll just stick to the good ol' tried-and-true "classic" 1 wu/download SETI client until then and try to hit that big 500 mark ^_^ ...
*sorry, end ramblings now*

Peace,
Eric
