It's time to appologize ...

Accepted.


I don't believe that Martin was apologizing to you. He was saying that several members on this board owe Travis an apology. Those of you who have busted on Travis for not giving out information, when in reality he HAS done a very good job of keeping us informed need to apologize to Travis.

The messages only turned up after this topic started. Other than that we were waiting for the best part of 12 hours for info.



12 whole hours, huh? Must have been a killer to sit in front of the computer watching the seconds tick away while not know what was happening with MilkyWay.

I wonder how people survive for days, weeks, or even months between informational posts by the admins on other projects.

I've been trying to keep the news updated (somewhat more briefly than what's in here) whenever something new happens. Other more minor details i'm keeping here in the forums :)


Dear Travis,

I DO NOT second the original proposal of this thread! You do a magnificent job of keeping us informed about what's going on (e.g. server crash, electricity blackout, etc.). You do this in a much more detailled way than in most other BOINC projects. Plus you DO listen to the suggestions that are made in this forum (e.h. credits, cheating, etc.)

Thank you very much for this effort and keep this information policy!


I feel like this project does a good job of keeping information flowing, also. Especially like last night when they were trying to update the binaries but ran into other problems. They posted several messages on the front page explaining what was happening. Keep up the good work.

Aborting and asking for new work seems to solve the problem.


Didn't work for me. :( Also, waiting a random amount of time and retrying the download also didn't work for me.

[edit]I spoke too soon. It finally did work for me after I aborted and asked for new work. It still failed the first time or two, but it did eventually work.[/edit]

I have a couple of items stuck trying to download to my machine, with the message "file not found". The two items are stars.txt and volume.txt. Should I abort or continue to wait?

Thanks!

Edit: Found the same problem on three other machines.


Just to confirm that I have the same problem with the same files.
