Your personal background.
When I find my code in tons of trouble,
Friends and colleagues come to me,
Speaking words of wisdom:
"Write in C."

As the deadline fast approaches,
And bugs are all that I can see,
Somewhere, someone whispers"
"Write in C."

Write in C, write in C,
Write in C, write in C.
LISP is dead and buried,
Write in C.

I used to write a lot of FORTRAN,
for science it worked flawlessly.
Try using it for graphics!
Write in C.

If you've just spent nearly 30 hours
Debugging some assembly,
Soon you will be glad to
Write in C.

Write in C, write in C,
Write In C, yeah, write in C.
Only wimps use BASIC.
Write in C.

Write in C, write in C,
Write in C, oh, write in C.
Pascal won't quite cut it.
Write in C.

Guitar Solo

Write in C, write in C,
Write in C, yeah, write in C.
Don't even mention COBOL.
Write in C.

And when the screen is fuzzy,
And the edior is bugging me.
I'm sick of ones and zeroes.
Write in C.

A thousand people people swear that T.P.
Seven is the one for me.
I hate the word PROCEDURE,
Write in C.

Write in C, write in C,
Write in C, yeah, write in C.
PL1 is 80's,
Write in C.

Write in C, write in C,
Write in C, yeah, write in C.
The government loves ADA,
Write in C.
Your opinions about BOINC
+ The idea is very good, not unique and not the first one, but still good

+ Some very interesting projects out there

+ 4.19 was a fine piece of software, simple enough and transparent, just like a DC platform should be

(+) at least a few good ideas of users make it into the source - often 5 years later though


- More BOINC versions than windows patches

- The new client side scheduler is a piece of crap, not better than the old one

- BOINC takes too much influence away from the user, this gets worse with every new release

- There should be an optional ZIP delivery for manual installation

- Most projects don't like 4.19 anymore

- Captchas are crappy if not done well (BOINC is a good example)

- Whoever invented Long Term Debits should have his head dunked into dog doo once the day. It simply makes no sense to tell the scheduler (positive STD) that a project has to crunch, but tell the cache manager, it shouldn't download anything (negative LTD).


Overall BOINC is becoming microsoftisher from year to year :-(
