Ahoy! me Hearties!

'Tis Beethoven, mates, rarin' to sail!

But no work units!

'Tis but a while ago, I reduced that Templar Seti@home raiding frigate to but 50% allocation, yet still she sails on, while my good pirate ship catches nary a breeze! Not a work unit to be found!

The Project be saying "Scheduler Request Pending". ARRRRGH!!!

What shall I do, me maties?

Belay that last post, me Hearties!

We've trimmed the sails, reset the rudder, caught a good stiff breeze and we be off and running!

Avast! We're off to roam the seven seas, a drinkin', a rollicking, a sailing and a plundering!

Ahoy! Virgin schooner of the starboard mast!

Aye! Let's be catching her! Arr!

Take a galoon of rum and sit down, to be able to wait few weeks until next WU sails in. No need for 50% ship allocation, 1% is more then enough.

In the mean time you can read through older messages, the treasure is actually hidden here!

Pepo! Ye olde scurvy Dog!

We have units in hand already! 'Tis what I meant when I said "Belay that post...we be off and running".

We sail quick on my frigate! Hahah!

Aye, I'll be roaming through the posts here. ;)

Have some rum with me, Matey!

Split me bloomers, Beethoven, I knew you are a fine looking man for a wench like me. ;-D

Do as Peter tells you to do, have some grog, but stay on deck, because when the Cap'n set sails to sail out for plunderings on the 7'th sea, and he hands out treasure, it's only for the crew who are on the ship. The crewmembers, who leave the ship like a flock of landlubbers, will get nothing. And no treasure, no grains of gold.

And keep whatever setting you want, when Captain Wormholio hands out treasure, you'll see messages like these in your log:

8/16/2006 5:09:30 PM|Pirates@Home|Starting task wu_1155737904_151_0 using lalanne version 502
8/16/2006 5:09:33 PM||Suspending work fetch because computer is overcommitted.
8/16/2006 5:11:37 PM||Rescheduling CPU: application exited
8/16/2006 5:11:37 PM|Pirates@Home|Computation for task wu_1155737904_151_0 finished
8/16/2006 5:11:37 PM||Resuming round-robin CPU scheduling.


and this means that your BOINC manager drops everything else to crunch your treasure, because of the deadline of those. So don't worry, stay on deck, and the grains of gold will fill your purse, slowly, very slowly.

And just a warning, coming here and howl for treasure will get you keelhauled. Or you might even get to taste the cat-o'-nine-tails with your back...

You maybe surprise to know that I didn’t know about it before…
