Ok, so the videos are from 2011, and Matt may not be the best presenter and the audio sucked quite a bit.
However ... I found them to be quite informative in several aspects:
You have to have respect for someone who can re-develop an app from scratch without the original code.
You can understand the extreme patience required by the BOINC server operator who is applying many arch-based clients and having to recompile the server software to do so - while the server software is breaking for various other reasons.
I recon 2011 was a very trying year for Matt and he did well to push through.
Now he's got a solid platform and some cracking client apps.
Quite the coup, and well deserving of some adulation, I think.

Great work, Matt!
Thanks for sticking with us.
PS - Thanks also to Jeff who has taken some of the load off Matt. Also a noteable effort.

After about 15 attempts I just got a complete stars.txt file and now I'm crunching something.

Installed 5.10.8 on AMD64, RHEL5, 2.6.18-8.1.15.el5

I can see the files downloading into the folder
~/BOINC/projects/milkyway.cs.rpi.edu_milkyway

astronomy_1.07_i686-pc-linux-gnu
parameters_generated_1194765844_83
parameters_generated_1194773034_362
parameters_generated_1194773041_456
parameters_generated_1194802758_61

parameters_generated_1194804159_288
parameters_generated_1194804163_343
stars.txt
volume2.txt


But the BOINC Manager says all of the downloads have failed.

Some of the files created have a zero file size including stars.txt
The message log shows the download is successful.
So it looks like they were sent from the server that way.
