I know some feel it has been a little bit boring here lately, but that does not mean that nothing has been happening.

First, I belive I have found the cause of the problems with the 'hello' application on Linux. You can read more about it here. Initial tests are encouraging, and we'll test it more thoroughly soon.

Next, we'll be upgrading to the latest development version of BOINC soon. The thing that has held us back is the need to deal with code variations between three separate projects. I have set up CVS repositories for the two that I can control, and some scripts to manage correlations between them. An added bonus of this is that I can use this to distribute the source code for Pirates apps via CVS, not just tarballs.

So hang on, things will be a little more interesting soon, I hope.

Actually, there is also some new treasure, but the crew has yet to find it...

I grabbed the last of the "porthole" version of the treasure. Or are you speaking of another kind of treasure?

I found a bunch of coins too, actually approx. a square dozen of them. Although, with crunch times starting at 6-11 seconds, we can merely speak of change than treasure coins :-)
And the question is, what/where is the treasure!

So far there's only one person who has 1 dubloon in his account. Want us to kill him for that one piece of gold?

So far the only one that proud / brave / couragous / risky to tell us.

[edit]not quite true, found another one, hope it will not cause some uprising on the ship ;-)

And another one - OK, I quit searching. Please note that his Account data shows 7 messages, but the Profile tells abount only one! Database quirk? Also disproportion between Byron's posts count... Maybe few others too with different message counts? Yes![/edit]

[edit]And fer more dubloon-awarded persons: this and this - something common? I think all belong to any team, have credit and Profile (I'm out :-( haven't written any) and are on this ship since 2004.[/edit]

On few projects we've seen users being UOTD more consecutive days in a row (yes, a bug on the project's side, maybe their capt's fell asleep or got drunk, oficially called less priority problem, doesn't matter).

If this would happened here, would it mean more doubloons?
