Is there then a preferential setting for the science side?

If I go to create a profile, enter all information and submit everything appears to work. Until I go to view the profile at which point I get an error of profile does not exist for that user id.

"Me too."

My three AMD X2 rigs at home are now suffering from this. Manual update works fine though.

Which client are you running Jeff? I've not seen this behaviour on any of my machines.

Imagine that your work unit produces three different structures of the same 'energy'. The client could (assuming that you set your preferences) then flash the three structures on your screen and ask you to choose the two that were most 'similar' to the eye. I don't know if this, something like this is going to happen, but I think there are things that just about anyone can do much more easily that a computer and we should use you to do it.

If something like this does happen, can I suggest two different applications?

The first for those that run single or even a couple of machines that can take the time or have the opportunity to do a visual check. The second would be for those that run the project across medium to large networks that cannot do the interaction part of things.

I'm sure things like this would be thought of but... just in case. :)

I think you will find (for the most part) that larger corporations and such will not and can not run DC projects on their PC's because of policies that prevent/forbid it. It doesn't mean that they shouldn't be asked but do so in a professional manner and maybe even draw up a proposal citing energy usage, what projects you want to run and what the possible benefits are.

It's taken a long time to get these policies in place and to change them almost takes an "act of God". I run BOINC on my lab machines only as the policies there are more lenient. I wouldn't even think... well, actually I would... of running a DC project on all of the client machines. I wouldn't actually do it though.

There are some VP's and such that won't mind the processes running in the background but for the most part, they are technologically challenged individuals that will see it as a waste of time because there isn't a way for them to make themselves look good. Harsh but true.

A bit off-topic... :D

Hiya Jeff. Imagine seeing you here?

Timestamps would be nice as well. :)
