Forget the rest join the team thats probably somewhere in the middle(ish), maybe!!


You know the drill! Join us blah, we're great blah blah, friendlist team in the world blah blah blah.

If you don't want to join then at least pop by the forum and say hi.

A double milestone for me. Just got into the top 100 for total credit and about to hit 500,000 credit in total for rosetta. And well done to everyone for their milestones whatever they maybe.

Seems a bit suspect, what do you think??

13,000k higher than the second placed computer in RAC.

Welcome to Rosetta to Mirek Sabiniewicz from Poland who has joined from our old Seti classic team.

The hunt for member number 54 is now on :o)

And of course I'm going to be the first!

Ive just got above 10,000th place in all my projects, based on the total credit figures from BOINC-stats. So all my positions are in four figures (or less).

Next goal - get above 1000th place (ie into 3 figures) on Rosetta while there are still few enough people to make it easy ;-)



Well that was easier than I thought - just got into 3 figs on my Rosetta rank and into 5 figs on Rosetta credit. And heading for 6 figs BOINC overall by the end of the year.

Makes me feel a bit better - all those dodgy wu can't have been doing me as much harm as they felt like :-)

And then I read Paul D Buck's aim to get a third project larger than SETI, so I just got me 6 projects ahead of SETI ;-)


Nice going River. I stopped doing Boinc after I reached 100k in seti and moved to Folding@home. I now have 4 computers on Rosetta and a dualie on Folding. Do you think any project will get more users than SETI? Off to get off topic there :os

Woot, I just passed 30,000k

Mended my brothers PC to and the charge was for me to be able to put Rosetta on it :D

Only running part time but better than nothing hey :)

Welcome to the Rosetta team gfischell, member number 49.

Just think, you could be TPR 50th member. Free invisible t-shirt and invisible car for the person who becomes our 50th member.

Help us reach 50 members, why not be number 48!! 48 is such a nice number, and also is one closer to 50.

Congratulations on the milestone you're about to reach. My wife is 1/2 Dutch(No, that doesn't mean you can have 1/4 our computers crunching for you.)

Keep crunching from your friends at TPR.

There were two statues in a park; one of a nude man and one of a nude woman. They had been facing each other across a pathway for a hundred years when one day an angel comes down from the sky and, with a simple gesture, brings them both to life.

The angel tells them 'As a reward for being so patient through a hundred blazing summers and dismal winters, you have been given life for thirty minutes to do what you've wished to do the most.'

He looks at her, she looks at him, and they go running off together behind the shrubbery.

The angel waits patiently as giggling sounds come from the rustling bushes.

After fifteen minutes the two return out of breath and laughing.

The angel tells them 'You still have fifteen minutes left.'

The male statue asks the woman statue, 'Would you like to do it again?'

'Oh yes. Let's,' she replies. 'But let's change positions. This time, I'll hold the pigeon down and you poo on its head!!'

Joke time!

How many mice does it take to screw in a light bulb?





2, the hard part is getting them into the light bulb. =)



Yikes! I need another g-string to wipe up the cider (the Korean term for Sprite/7-up) off the computer again.

I'm going to have to put about the soda bottle when reading this thread in the future.


The joke doesn't worry me, I liked it. The fact I haven't heard it does. I need to get out more:o

Which version of BOINC are you running?



Oh, and if you tell us where we confused you in the Wiki, we can take a look to see if we can make it clearer. But, if you keep that to yourself, well, it helps no one ...

...........................................................................
I am running version 5.2.13 which I just started on at the first of this month. I guess I should have made it clear that my confusion is actually my fault, due to my ignorance of the inner workings of computer programs, so when I say that the WIKI is confusing, it is basically that I dont understand the terminology, etc. That makes it difficult to even know what questions to ask, or look for. I checked this morning, and Rosetta had done fine, and of course, Setti is still just sitting there, not uploading due to inability to connect with their servers. I might add that Comcast is going through one of its fits this weekend...I believe they have sold to too many customers, without the infrastructure [just my opinion], so in the last few months,sometimes I have no, or very slow connectivity.
I am beginning to think that if I just be patient, and realize this this system just works differently, my 'problems' will disappear. My apologies if I stepped on any toes..Im just old and cranky.



Seti have been having issues over the last few days as far as I can gather from my forum friends and is just getting back to normal. But on the other hand thats the beauty with BOINC, if you have another project running that takes up the slack if one project goes down(ie if you run out of work). You may need to check your prefernces on your account page to see what your settings are but I wouldn't worry at all about having a few units(Whether seti, rosetta or otherwise) in the cache waiting to be returned, they all have a deadline date which is shown on the work tab. I mayself have 4 units unreturned on this computer and I have one thats not net connected which I send in once a day manually. As you can see from my post I'm not a computer person at all, it just takes some getting used to when you switch from one platform to another. Stick with it and you'll find it as easy to use as classic, even I do.

Regards,

Neal

First is best.....the whole premise of the last movie was ridiculous. Here we are in the great future....light sabers etc, etc, and we have a woman dying giving birth!! What drivel....give me a break!!


Yeah, she was dying because she had just given up, was rather weak that.
