    Are you having any problems with the machines running this ? It killed one of my boxen due to the high amount of disk writing, which is why I stopped it..probably just a bad drive though. Ramdisks would likely help a lot..

    Too hot to run too much right now and I shut down a number of machines anyway..

    Just leave it on Good thing come to those who wait
    I started in late yesterday But I still made 78.000 points

    Whenever the server stalls VTU takes up the slack

    It is strange to have 29 WU's running at one time within BOINC
    And all 25 FreeHAL and 4 VTU running up time

    Wow, I got another unit. It's that Lauren guy monopolising the servers again and trying to beat them into submission
    I always run more than one bonk project and WCG is still getting plenty of efforts.

    Tah Lauren, I'll try that. Seems the normal bonk method of getting x days of work doesn't work.

    According to this, I had 26,415 credits taken away and laurenu2 lost 222,135. This is the second time I've been burned there and it will be the last. Tobias, instead of solving a problem just punishes everyone. My boxes are gone.

    It wasn't a full reset per se, just a reset to a known valid state. The project got buggy there for a couple days, and was granting RIDICULOUS credit that people didn't earn. I lost ~97k. Some of that was valid credit, but most wasn't. One dude lost ~11M, most of which (~10.8M) came on a single day (and we know that can't happen).

    Now the limits are a separate point of contention...

    Confiscation of our servers
    In recent days, apparently carried out on my home computer through a trojan various hacker attacks. According to current information, the server FreeHAL the project were not affected, but these were also the end of March seized by the police and possibly be used as evidence.

    The possibility of a compromise of the BOINC server can be excluded since no unauthorized access is to be the compiler or the secret key. The aim of the attacks apparently was blackmailing several people from my private life, a school and an institution for the publication of private information of individuals and the threat to sabotage online stores.

    Unfortunately we have yet no precise information about the nature and scope of the investigation, therefore no conclusion can yet be made as to when a controlled operation is again possible. We try to explain this matter as quickly as possible.

    For more information please send an e-mail to freehal@gmx.de. Responsible for the investigation, the police headquarters and the central Hesse Heidelberg Police Department or the respective prosecutors' offices.

    We are delighted of course any donations, both financial as well as in the form of hardware, as it currently does not look like that we get the data and the hardware in the foreseeable future.

    Yes, i saw that too, not sure how much faith I would put into it as it seems he posts something extraordinary like this fairly often. It doesn't really make too much sense at all.

    I'm not seeing any problems with their website or WUs (the few that I've gotten so far anyway).

    MWB isn't warning me about the site, and it's usually *very* fussy about what it'll let me look at

    But then again it might be Adblock blocking something naughty. Or maybe my firewall.

    Just visited the homepage again and all I see is a bunch of blocked port scans from some noob on a US SDL block. Pretty sure it's unrelated.

    Cheers,

    Al.

    Puhleez, I do have some standards

    No, using XP on the main desktop machine. I have the paid-for MWB running at the moment (I don't generally use any AV software, but I was trying this one out for the wife's business).

    Out of curiosity I ran a full MWB scan, and a bunch of rootkit tools, anti-spyware stuff, free AV stuff, and pretty much anything else I had around. Nothing came up with anything. Dunno. Like I say, SPI firewall in the router, adblocking etc might be stopping any naughtiness.

    Only thought that occurs to me is the site security cert being self-signed and pointing to the 'wrong' URL or something. Firefox kept blocking me for a while but I just added an exception. Maybe something to do with what @gopher_yarrowzoo mentioned?

    Cheers,

    Al.
