Hmmm.....Let's see here.....

Since removing Boinc, my 'puter has suffered no slowdowns, no problems whatsoever. AVG didn't give me any false-positives. Still hasn't. And though I may not be a "geek," I do know my way around the 'block.'

I had never, ever had a problem running Boinc & Seti before. Nada. Zip.

My problems only began AFTER the router-problem transpired. But you would say the time-line here is meaningless, eh? On that note, perhaps you could recommend a good astrologer?

Homework Assignment:

Look up 'Occam's Razor.'

'ta!

Ever since the router-problem, Seti has been running erratically - slowing up my system, refusing to upload/download,causing AVG to malfunction, etc. These problems would vanish when I suspended Seti. This tells me there is a problem. Claiming it's a false-positive, etc. doesn't fit the bill. Each time I 'resumed' the project, the problems returned and became worse in short order.

I am truly sorry to say - I have removed Seti altogether before I ended up with data-loss on other things I engage in.

I'll check back periodically to see if there is any news. I hope to re-connect sometime soon.

Good luck, all -

Ist kaput.

Some variety of server problem in California. It's not a problem on your end. Please do not keep hitting 'Update' as that serves no purpose but clogs the system further.

They'll fix it when they figure it out in California.

Have fun -

Now I have 13 waiting to report. I hit the Update and Scheduler request pending just sits there. I hope it clears itself soon. It will run out of units pretty quick at this rate.

Greetings Earth -

Planet Vermont here. I've been trying to send what is now 6 units back to you that are Ready To Report. But they won't budge. Did you have another fire or something? Everything else is working fine. My ISP is running fine - as you can see if you're reading this.

Any ideas? I'll be checking back later and do so until resolved. Need me to organize a bucket-brigade?

Ditto! It's running! Yay! My computer was getting bored here in Podunk. I'd even be happy to find a Martian version of I Love Lucy. Now that is being bored.

Thanks all!

I loaded the latest version of BOINC, as well as the Oracle VM, and I have received work. My only problem was the "Oracle" trying to access my network-connections. That caused me to freeze/crash off the net. I disabled it. Problem solved.

Keep tinkering!

Matt,
Hope the database reconstruction goes well. Glad to see Green Banks data soon. My father told me as a kid, the GBT site was on my aunt's farm. Who would have thought years later I would be processing GBT data??

As such has been made clear to me for many years, it would seem the universe has a sense of humor. Examples abound!

I certainly hope we get the GBT data running soon. That little blue 'X' with a yellow dot is looking quite lonely sitting in my taskbar.

I have fired off my missive to the FCC. My focus was on the handing over the keys to what is nothing short of a miraculous experiment in diplomacy and the free sharing of knowledge and ideas on a truly global scale, to the proverbial 1% of the wealthiest corporate entities.

Hope they choke on it. I was a radio DJ in Boston for about 10 years. And I saw the FCC hand over every single "unassigned" radio frequency to 4 major corporations: Westinghouse, Disney, GE, and Turner Broadcast. If you have/had a independent station, and you lost your license somehow - BANG! It was now wearing Mickey-Mouse ears! And they went out of their way to try to cause "indies" to lose their licenses.

So I've seen how low they will stoop.

Good Night & Good Luck,

Dave
