    Communication deffered usually means you asked it to synchronise, or it tried to synchronise, but the server was too busy, or you dont have anything to send/recieve, or you asked it too quickly. yes thats normal!
    Yes, it seems to be doing some work.
    I will set up a couple of PC's at work next time im in.
    Is it best to merge them?

    The easiest way to do that is to:

    1. Email yourself (to your work PC) the long account code SETI sent you mine looks like this: Account Key: 1dg9e8372bdb35bf7021fc5a86b57k59
    2. Download the BOINK software onto each PC
    3. Run the BOINK set up
    4. Attach top SETI project using the same URL as today
    5. Paste the code in (no need for a user name or anything else)
    6. Dont merge the computers

    Merging the computers is used when you upgrade a PC, and it shows twice on your computer list. Each computer does its own work, and makes its own contribution

    If your PC is doing some work, leave it, you are set up properly. Assuming you have an always on internet connection, it will just get more work when it needs to. I dont know how BOINK works with dial up

    I did, because my email address, is accociated with my computers on SETI. My email address has been used online with my home address. so I dont want to advertize a powerful computer or two, or three, with my home address.. you know what I mean

    You could try and Re-Attach to the project.......select Projects from the menu...and then when prompted type in http://setiathome.berkeley.edu.

    It says I am not connected to a computer and prompts me to go to file-select computer.
    I have entered localhost is this correct?

    In the File-Select Computer,leaving it blank is usually best........But in some instances certain firewalls will require you to type in localhost. I had a prob a bit back similar to this and all i did was reboot and relaunch the Boinc and it resumed with no prob.

    I have tried the above, I guess I will reinstall and see if that helps.

    Wonder where the illustrious leader (QDO1) has been of late.

    Haven't seen a QDO1 post in months.

    I have been running both Einstein@home (search for gravity waves) and SETI@home on a new Mac mini with the "IntelCoreDuo" architecture. I've been running the latest Intel-target software versions and it's really ripping through those work units - for both applications. If I only wanted to do the SETI, I would have joined the OptiBoard team.

    I posted about these BOINC "science at home" applications - hoping to attract more volunteers ...

    Hmmmph.....with the exception of Rick seems as though everyone else has stopped. Maybe it has to do with the longer WU's.....i dont blame people for not wanting to give up that much cpu time.I myself am running running it on one of my P 3.4 HT's and have been thinking of shutting one of the cores down as of late. Why not join the team?.......

    Hello, Sean

    If I joined the OptiBoard SETI team, I would have to run SETI only, and not any of the other BOINC projects.

    I like running some of the other projects, such as the "Einstein" gravity wave experiment.

    Yours truly

    Understood.......:) What kind of RAC are you getting with the mini?

    Well, now that you (Sean) are asking ...

    We started running the Intel target versions of SETI and Einstein just about June 1.

    Einstein@home statistics
    total credit to date: 9150
    RAC: 354

    SETI@home statistics
    total credit to date: 7757
    RAC: 278

    I set the BOINC parameters to run the science applications "full throttle", 24/7. I don't remember the few parameters that are adjustable, but whatever they are, I set them all for maximum throughput. This must be loading the Mac to the limit. It has a temperature-controlled, variable-speed cooling fan and that fan has been running at the highest speed, ever since I updated to the Intel targets and maxed out the parameters. Before, I hardly ever noticed the fan, because it always ran at the lowest speed.

    The CPU temperature has been as high as 183 degrees F --! But I did some checking of an online database, and that does not seem to be out of line for these new Intel core Macs.

    Now here's the truth: I have the Mac running SETI. The cooling fan is on high and the CPU is at 130 F. I suspend SETI processing. In a few minutes the fan slows down until I can't hear it anymore and the CPU goes down to 84 F - the lowest I've ever seen. I restart SETI. In a few minutes the fan goes right back up to that high speed again, and the CPU goes back up to 130 F. Proof positive!


    Only you can prevent CPU fires

    It seems we are keeping the project going at the minute.
    How many machines are you running?
    I have been trying to catch you up for months but to no avail!

    Just one.......a Dual P 3.4 HT ....but i only run it on one of the cpu's with ht enabled. The other cpu i keep to myself :).
