1) Message boards : Help! : new version (4.39) of the BOINC core client... from this ... web site (Message 1399)

27-02-05 22:03:53 |Pirates@Home|Message from server: A new version (4.39) of the BOINC core client is available from this project's web site.

Don't see a v4.39 on Pirates or BOINC websites? There's v4.24 of the BOINC manager at the BOINC website, but server is saying this new core client is here at Pirates?

This a server goof or someone forget to put up new client? ;)

2) Questions and Answers : Windows : Screensaver - Location Icon changes forms after intial start (Message 495)
Posted 5522 days ago by The Astro Desk
When you first go into the screensaver, the location icon that shows you the point in the sky it is scanning is a large yellow cross hairs icon. However, if you leave the screensaver and then return to the graphic again, the icon turns into a small orange almost translucent dot about half the size of the original icons. It remains that way unless BOINC is restarted and then it revert back to the cross-hairs.

Unfortuantely I didn't catch the 2nd WU to see if it launched (in the graphic) with the yellow cross-hairs. =/

This was only the second time I managed to catch Pirates in action. Most of the time I don't see it till I check the work tab and see 100% done. If I can more than one WU again and I catch it, I'll watch the launch of subsequent WUs.

3) Questions and Answers : Windows : time to compute too briefly! (Message 494)
Posted 5522 days ago by The Astro Desk
Simply crank up the resource share on the Pirates project to a ridiculously high share in comparasion to the other projects. So if your other projects are in the low 100s, put pirates up to a share of 1000.

This does not become an issue because A.) The WUs are very small, and B.) if you are very concerned about Pirates preempting your other projects you wouldn't be running it. =)

Best,
