Have been accepted since July 27 of this year but not a single unit has been send to me.

Will we get a mail advice as to when reattach?

I have been attaching and detaching because of the same message through all these months - no work available.

At least one unit to help is all I was asking for.

We have been working on the project and converting it to BOINC 4, and it was easier to do so if we did not give out work to everybody.

When we are fully converted over then we plan to put out some work for everybody, just to see who is there and who has upgraded to BOINC 4, and to encourage those still using BOINC 3 to upgrade.

So thank you for attaching and being patient. We'll be giving out work soon, we hope.

No need to attach yet, until we get the file download problem solved.
At that point we may have to ask people to reset the project to clear
out some bad .exe files or clear the workunits for them. The news on
the project will announce when it's fixed.

Thanks again for the prompt reply. Hope it happens before I have to leave for a 10 day trip out of country.

At one time I did receive a couple of WU's but for some reason they never processed and by the time I saw them the return by date had passed.

When we first started learning to use BOINC we created very short workunits and they went by rather quickly. We still use them for testing, but now we will have longer workunits. Still a bit short, maybe 5-10 minutes, but long enough that you have really done something.

The download problem is fixed so we may have some work in a day or two...

that would be funny look and see cpdn 0 and counting. seti 1987.29. pirates .05. but any ways even with there being no work couldnt you send the applications out when you fix your problem(s)? ive been lead to think it would stop boinc from dropping the project?

~boinc its not about credit or the satisfaction its about the screensavers~

BOINC is different things to different people, but just so everybody knows,
Pirates@Home right now is *just* about the screensaver, not about crunching.

"12 September 2004
We 'found our keys', and now the scheduler is up and unrestricted. We are letting out some very small test workunits, but only a few at a time to see how they do. BOINC version 4 is now the required client."

Stop teasing. There is no work. I have been attached to this project for over a month and got nothing. Still have nothing even after the message of hope. Getting work units from this project is like getting a glimpse of the "Black Pearl". You've never seen it, but someone says they know somebody that has.

Till then I'll just keep swabbing the deck.

There is a little bit of work being sent out. I got a work unit here but without credit.

You just have to be on the lucky list to get work. :)
