I be nah sure if ’tis starb’rd galleon[size=-2] [1][/size] t’ post a miscellaneous issue that may or may nah indicate a problem wit’ th’ code -- mods, move th’ thread if thar’s somewhere better.

It could be that it wasn’t boarded[size=-2] [2][/size] in an commandeer[size=-2] [3][/size] format, but I thought I’d point it out in case ’tis a symptom o’ one o’ th’ encodin’ bugs that infested previous-version BOINC websites.
