It seems that uploads are stalled -- multiple systems for me.

New database I saw was 270Mb in size. Expect every single person is downloading it over the last day or so. It should ease down shortly. Except the server is currently down for maintenance at this precise moment

All my uploads went through 30 minutes ago, I\'ve already sneaked 3 tasks down and there\'s a message on the front page.

I hope they fixed it good. The servers are going to take one helluva hammering now! ;)

Keep trying. There are an extra 100,000 WUs in progress compared to yesterday, but they\'re all getting swallowed up as soon as they\'re issued. They\'re coming through in fits and starts. Seems like you have to be lucky to get a turn first.

Failed humour on my part. Sorry.

I\'m running another project as back-up but I much prefer Rosetta. It looks like there are many tasks but the make_work server is the problem. Someone give it a kick. Quick.

Just be aware that when you change the target runtime like that, that it effects all of the tasks that you have on-board at the time you update to the project and your machine gets that setting. So you want to be sure you don\'t have a big cache full of tasks, otherwise you will end up with too much work to finish before the deadlines...

What are the chances of that at the moment?! Tending rapidly to zero right now.

Post:
Has their been some hanky-panky with the way RAC is calculated? To favor users of one O/S, over another?

I have it on good quthority that it\'s aimed at reducing your RAC in particular. Nice to see it working.

Unfortunately I haven\'t had anything awarded for 2 days and more either, but it\'s a price I\'m willing to pay if it affects you.

PS: I\'m joking of course. It\'s all money in the bank and just give you a mega payout when it\'s all sorted out.

What I\'m really asking is if the problem has been resolved or if it\'s possible we could see continuing issues at unexpected times. Things still don\'t seem quite right, even now.

Either you\'re a fortune teller or a curse. Servers disabled.

Hopefully it\'s to put in a more permanent fix.

I crunched everything while the server was out. Everything uploaded now, but not fully credited yet (must be overloaded of course).

I have had 3 WUs come down, so work\'s trickling out, but I bet everyone\'s asking for everything all at once. It\'ll work its way through, I\'m sure.

Posted 23 May 2009 by HW&JC
Post:
1.67 is also still triggering Kaspersky Internet Security\'s detection, (and being automatically moved into the Untrusted apps category, it cannot be loaded by BOINC and just exits with 0 status constantly).

My sympathies. Same for Norton Internet Security 2009 as posted by me at http://boinc.bakerlab.org/rosetta/forum_thread.php?id=4876&nowrap=true#61205

As I said there, is there no way of getting both Symantec and Kaspersky on board with Mini Rosetta to whitelist it?

How many people are running away from Rosetta because all the WUs abort? Maybe we\'ll never know :(

Posted 15 May 2009 by HW&JC
Post:
In case anyone was wondering, Norton Internet Security 2009 rejects MiniRosetta as a suspect application again. Solution same as before.

Is there any way to get Symantec on board either by submitting the application to them or getting them to whitelist the suspect signature or to sign the application so that is passes through for every new version automatically?

I wonder what happens to those people who don\'t babysit the application when a new version comes out. Do they sit idle until Rosetta Beta WUs get issued?

Post:
Ditto for NIS2009 with MiniRosetta 1.65
Go to \"Security History\" and select the \"Resolved Security Risks\" option from the drop down. Click \"More Details\" and chose to \"Restore Risk\" and ensure that the MiniRosetta executable isn\'t rejected again. Not sure where the option went to report the false positive to Symantec, but it sorts you out.

I think the way to report the false positive is to chose the report option first, then restore risk. I did it wrong again but I\'ll remember next time.

For those who run Norton Internet Security 2009 it would be wise to check the new executable hasn\'t been quarantined in the way previous versions have, as reported here. That message shows how to restore the file from quarantine and report it to Symantec as a false positive.

Yup, it does it again:

Not sure where the option went to report the false positive to Symantec, but it sorts you out.

Strange, because a lot of 1.64 tasks went through ok before it rejected all the tasks at once. Click my name on this message to see my reported results - but also note that I have a lot of computer problems anyway, so there are always a lot of errors. My fault rather than Rosetta\'s in those cases.

18) Message boards : Number crunching : NIS 2009 does not like some work units (Message 57872)
Posted 14 Dec 2008 by HW&JC
Post:
Norton Internet Security 2009 has started to detect, via it\'s Sonar advanced detection system,certain Rosetta work units as \'High Security Risks\' and is automatically deleting them.
Is this a Norton or Rosetta problem?

Running XP fully up to date.

Same here on XP with NIS 2009. Click on \"More Details\" in the Quarantine and you have the option to \"Restore Risk\". I tried doing that and it seemed the file was already back in place in the right directory anyway. Restoring the risk sets up an automatic exclusion to prevent it getting quarantined again.

Report it to Symantec using that More Details link in NIS - sounds like a False Positive they ought to know about.

Also, for what it\'s worth, the claim that Norton Firewall adds 20,000 registry entries is a straight lie. On my machine under XP with NIS 2009 the total for everything mentioning Symantec or Norton is 500 entries. Anyone claiming 20,000 has to be scaremongering - a lot of it about. Lots of people like to do that who\'ve never even used Norton or did so several years ago.

It\'s all down to it being a pay product. AVG was great until people had to pay for it. Now it\'s slated. Avast was always ridiculed next to AVG when they were both free. Now it\'s brilliant. Until it becomes a pay product as well and people will say they never liked it.
