1) Message boards : Questions and problems : BOINC Manager keeps attaching to a different account (Message 103245)

Problem solved, possibly.

I finally figured out that the incorrect account key belonged to another person who had installed BOINC on both this computer (years ago) and on the second computer (months ago).

Are you the owner of that "other persons" computers now, and it's the same computers that you are using?

And that has something to do with the message board timing out?
Well, if it involved loading new software, and then reinstating a code database onto a replacement server that's trying to handle too much already, it might. Just a suggestion.

Ah, OK, that's plausible.

And the problem is back again, after having been gone for awhile.

Who is DoS'ing the SETI messageboard?
It's timing almost every time.
No idea, I'm seeing the same.
Raistmer emailed Eric K yesterday, to ask him to re-instate the SVN repository holding all the SETI application code...

And that has something to do with the message board timing out? (Message board is now totally useless)

So, this thread, as well as some other threads, has now become the home of a true anarchist. Yeah well.....
And just what have you got against anarchy? Anything is better than the Big Brother world we currently live in.

So why do you live in a country you do not like? There are many countries, or regions, with anarchistic tendencies left in the world, where I'm sure you would find many like minded friends,
Yemen is a pretty anarchistic country, why not select Yemen as your home. I'm sure it would fit you better than the U.K. Nobody there will ever bother you about speeding, or sending you
SMS Alert messages about abducted children.

Don't tell me that you chose to continue living in a democratic country like the U.K, only to reap the benefits, like the NHS and the welfare system.
It can't be that, can it? :-)

And yes, I do think I will filter you out now, so don't bother answering any more. Have a nice stay in Yemen.

The military according to the constitution they themselves wrote, held 25% of the seats in the parliament. No matter what any election would say.
That in itself makes this coup even more strange. Other than that they didn't like the outcome of the election of course :-)
(hmm who else in recent times, didn't like the outcome of an election, and tried, but failed, to stage a coup??)

And yes her tacit approval of the human rights abuses, especially the Rohingya genocide, does not give her any sympathy from me either.

Goodnight Myanmar (Burma)

There went the quasi democracy of Myanmar (Burma). Not a big surprise though.
Internet, phones, and TV, is down of course.

Jord, I'm so sorry to hear of your loss. My deepest sympathies to you and your family. No matter how old we are, it’s never easy to lose a parent.
Please accept my deepest condolences for your loss.

The past days I was up at 6am already anyway. I've known I was the designated driver since the day she told me she was pregnant. So no shock there. So this morning when she called at 02:48 I was out of bed and into my car and at her house within 12 minutes. No problems. :)

Congratulations, and then of course some questions, that I politely will refrain from asking :-)

It's OK with me, since the Interweb is destroying itself, and will soon only consist of pages full of ads, conspiracy theories, and in general people who in past-times would have spent their life in mental health institutions.

Social media is making people dumber and dumber, sitting in their own little bubble, not able to see anything else than what confirms their own twisted view on reality.

If this "pushing SU" continues here on the BOINC site, I'll uninstall the normal BOINC client, and install the WCG BOINC client instead.
Why, oh why, try to fix something that isn't broken???

Why would I hand over control over what particular project I want to crunch for, to something like Science United?
The the day I crunch via Science United, is the day it's time to carry me out feet first.

If you hibernate the computer instead of shutting down, that problem will never happen.
There are WU's on WCG for example, that has hours between checkpoints (depending on computer of course), so when running those, hibernate is the only way to stop them from jumping back hours, if you want to "pause" the computer.
