My host has just tried connecting to the "Pirates" servers to get work and received the following error message (from log):

Pirates@Home - 2005-02-17 19:18:22 - Requesting 38298 seconds of work
Pirates@Home - 2005-02-17 19:18:22 - Sending request to scheduler: http://pirates.vassar.edu/cgi-bin/scheduler
Pirates@Home - 2005-02-17 19:18:26 - Scheduler RPC to http://pirates.vassar.edu/cgi-bin/scheduler succeeded
Pirates@Home - 2005-02-17 19:18:26 - Message from server: No work available (there was work for other platforms)
Pirates@Home - 2005-02-17 19:18:26 - No work from project
Pirates@Home - 2005-02-17 19:18:26 - Deferring communication with project for 1 days, 0 hours, 0 minutes, and 0 seconds

Anyone able to shed some light on this? Why can I suddenly not download a WU, even though some are available, never had a problem before!

What are these "other platforms" the error message mentioned? Is it just that no work is available for "Windows" platforms, but is for Unix/Mac?

Hi,

> They are Linux WU's.

Thanks for the info, you've confirmed my suspicions.

Not been around here very long so am still picking things up, IYKWIM?
