Message 46299 - Posted: 15 Nov 2012, 19:30:32 UTC

Could somebody with posting rights on ABC@home

copy and paste the following information to the project's Problems Message Board , please?

perhaps the following ?

a new thread here: Dear Alyssa Milburn - Forum moderator - Help!

my message:

Dear Alyssa Milburn
system administrator/programmer: - ABC@home
Forum moderator
Project administrator
Project developer

Could you possible help me access my account at ABC@home ?

I have an account at: ABC@home by mere fact that I am founder of the BOINC
wide team: Carl Sagan
so BOINC automatically creates an account for me:
http://abcathome.com/show_user.php?userid=76024
my account's email address is: xyz
my userid=76024
my username is: Byron Leigh Hatch @ team Carl Sagan

I have e mailed amilburn _at_ abcathome.com

no answer ?

my ISP Blocking e mails from ABC@home ?

I never have had my computers attached to ABC@home
so I can't use the following option:

If you have run BOINC under the account, you can still access it. Here's how:


  • Go to the BOINC data directory on your computer (on Windows this is usually C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\BOINC or C:\Program Files\BOINC.
  • Find your account file for this project; it will have a name like account_lhcathome.cern.ch.xml (where the project URL is http://lhcathome.cern.ch).
  • Open the file in a text editor like Notepad. You'll see something like


etc ...

or ......

I have tried the following:

If you know your account's email address, and you can receive email there:
Enter the email address below, and click OK. You will be sent email
instructions for resetting your password

If the email doesn't arrive in a few minutes, your ISP may be blocking it as spam.
In this case please contact your ISP and ask them to not block email from:

abcathome@math.leidenuniv.nl

some how my ISP must be blocking e mail from: abcathome@math.leidenuniv.nl

I have contacted my ISP but they say they are not blocking e mail abcathome@math.leidenuniv.nl

???

can you please help me access my account at ABC@home ?

Thank in advance for any hints, suggestion or help.

Byron

my account's email address is: xyz

I guess my main problem is I'm not able to reset my password at ABC@home:

Email sent

Instructions have been emailed to xyz@xyz.ca.

If the email doesn't arrive in a few minutes,
your ISP may be blocking it as spam.
In this case please contact your ISP and ask
them to not block email from abcathome@math.leidenuniv.nl.

hello every one,

once again could some kind soul, with with posting rights on ABC@home Message Boards,

Copy and paste my following message to:

http://abcathome.com/forum_thread.php?id=891


Dear Alyssa Milburn
system administrator/programmer
ABC@home

I'm trying to attach my computters to the project: - ABC@home -
I already have an existing account at: ABC@home -
http://abcathome.com/show_user.php?userid=76024
I just need to Re Set my password at: ABC@home

would it be possible for you to look up my authenticator code number in your database - using my account's userid number - 76024 - ?

and email my authenticator code number to me at my account's email address:
- as for my account's email address -
I think ... you should also be able to find my account's email address - in your database - ?
- using my userid=76024
I don't want to post my account's email address on an open fourm.

I could then use the authenticator code number to reset my Pass word at ABC@home
and then: attach my computters to the project: - ABC@home -

my account's userid is:
my userid=76024
http://abcathome.com/show_user.php?userid=76024
my user name is: Byron Leigh Hatch @ team Carl Sagan

if you have any questions for me - could you contact me at: - my account's email address -

or by Private Message -

here --> http://boinc.berkeley.edu/dev/forum_thread.php?id=7992

thanks in advance for any hints, suggestion or help.

Hi mikey,
mikey wrote the following:
I am NOT an admin anywhere but I THINK he - [ Byron ] - can go to any account on any board
and see his "cross project id" under 'my account' on the webpage
and use that to login with instead of his username and password.

thank you very much for trying to help.
I tried your suggestion ... but sadly that did not work __ :-(
apparently there are only two (2) ways ... to log on to one's account.

  • (1) - Log in with - e mail + password

  • (2) - Log in with - authenticator number


I had a similar problem attaching my computers to my account at malariacontrol.net
and that was solved by Jord and - the system administrator - sending to me - by Private email - my authenticator number.
authenticator number and the "cross project id" ... are two different things.


Dear Byron,

Jord sent me a mail about your problem re-attaching to malariacontrol.net.
I think you should be able to recover your password
by using the - authenticator - I found in our database for your account:
Hope this helps, otherwise let me know.

Best wishes,
Nick

so I guess the bottom line is that I need - one of the ... Project administrator ... at ... ABC@home
to search their database for my account's - authenticator -
and to send it to me by my account's private e mail ... or by Private message ... here

thanks again, if you have any questions for me - you could contact me here --> http://boinc.berkeley.edu/dev/forum_thread.php?id=7992 --> by Private message

any ideas ? :-)

http://abcathome.com/forum_thread.php?id=891

Yes, but only a small chance though :

Check your browser for a cookie named "auth" for the ABC server - even if you login with mail+password, the browser creates that cookie containing your account ID.

I think for that to work I would have had to ... to have had my computers attached to ABC@home no ?
I have never had my computers attached to ABC@home

the reason i have an account at ABC@home is because:
I am founder of a BOINC a wide team

team Carl Sagan

http://abcathome.com/team_display.php?teamid=1999

BOINC code automatically creates an account on all projects ... for any founder of a BOINC wide team:

No Byron, cookies are sent to your browser, not to the BOINC client.
A cookie is a small piece of data sent from a website and stored in a user's web browser while a user is browsing a website. (source)

So you'll have to check that under the cookies in your browser's options.
E.g. in Firefox, that's Options->Privacy->Remove individual cookies.
For IE it's in C:\Users\{Your User Name}\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Cookies

Will you let me know if this worked ?

Good luck,

That's news to me. You have me too high, Byron. I don't develop BOINC, just test and run it and talk to the developers about it. :-)

could you please help me by: sending an e mail

I'll do that tomorrow, after work and before I have to take my mum to the hairdressers. ;-)
