1) Message boards : Help! : Total Credit and Resource Share won\'t update (Message 1219)
Posted 5740 days ago by Heffed
You can change the resource share manually if you want.

Exit BOINC, backup the pirates .xml file, (in case you mess something up) edit the file with whatever resource share you want, save the file.

When you restart BOINC, it will reflect the new resource share.

Just remember to make the change on the Pirates website as well, otherwise it will switch back when the servers are giving work again.

HeHe... Yes, just taking it out would indeed be easier to implement. :)

Works just fine here.

I believe this is a function of BOINC itself and the Pirates team can do little about it.

Perhaps post in the Seti@Home wishlist forum?

I see. Thanks John.

It's public? Whatever happened to being sent an email when the project was starting up? Wasn't that the point of registering?

Ah, and account creation is closed. Nicely done... :(
7) Questions and Answers : Windows : BOINC 4.13: Pirates@home changed to LHC@home (Message 221)

That's odd, this was supposed to be fixed after 4.09.
8) Message boards : Preferences : Punishment? (Message 208)
Posted 5860 days ago by Heffed
Just curious what form of punishment people have chosen in their P@H project preferences.

I have set mine to \"Walk Plank\". Of course, my lucky number setting will ensure I never receive said punishment. ;)

Was the project app named "Jack"? Earlier WUs were named after fitness guru Jack Lalanne.

Yes, if you don't have network access enabled, you won't see it. The BOINC devs have determined that BOINC gets confused if two projects are making contact at the same time.

So if LHC opens connections to the LHC server and S@H butts in, S@H now believes it's LHC. They are working on a fix.

I also don't believe disabling network access will have any effect on client speed. BOINC is doing the talking, not the project app. that's doing the work.
