Auto-update capability for BOINC: Would that be good?
Posted 25 Mar 2007 by rinselberg
I was thinking that if the @home applications automatically update to the newest software version, why not the same for BOINC?
Or is that something that is already "in the pipeline" - planned for some future version of BOINC?

No "biggie" - but I don't think that Profile is working for me ...
Posted 7 Mar 2007 by rinselberg
I realize that this wouldn't be anyone's particular priority as far as distributed computing, but I would like to report that I have tried to create a Profile for my account on this BOINC Message Boards and I do not see that it is working for me.
I have created Profiles for myself on various project message boards like seti@home, etc.
After my latest attempt, when I clicked on the icon at the bottom that is used to enter the new or edited Profile data, it faced me with the page of http://boinc.berkeley.edu/dev/create_profile.php but the page was completely blank. It did not even say "Profile data has been submitted" - which is what it said on some previous attempts.
If I could get past this submittal problem, would my new Profile data become effective immediately - or would there be a time lag to allow for database updates or rejection of unacceptable Profile data, etc ..?
I am using a Mac/Intel with Mac OS X and the Safari browser and a DSL Internet access. My software is very up to date.
I do expect to post here from time to time, as I am running a few @home projects and also try to do @home beta testing.
A member Profile, of course, is just a "bell or a whistle", but if anyone has the answer for me, I would like to be able to create one.
