1) Message boards : Number crunching : Did I take the wrong off ramp? (Message 68172)
Posted 19 Feb 2019 by surfelvis
I noticed that my Average Credit for Milkyway@home is 0 although my total credits are 2,303,306. I have been crunching for Milkyway since April 2010. I've been with Seti@home since 2006 (it was actually years before that but I couldn't remember my old e-mail address), and I've been with Universe@home and Asteroids@home (also did Orbit, but that shut down). My computer is actively crunching for the other three but not Milkway (or at least I think so).
I have no tasks under my account for Milkyway@home, although I do under Seti@home, Universe@home and Asteroids@home.
I also haven't received any e-mail newsletters from Rensselaer or Milkyway, i.e., fund raising, badges, etc., like I did in prior years.
Did I miss doing a required update or something and continue on my merry way oblivious to the latest requirements necessary to continue to crunch for Milkyway?
I want to continue to support you, so if I need to do something to get back on board, please let me know.
I'm not very technically proficient, which is one reason I try to avoid these message boards in the first place.
I also thought that I had uploaded or downloaded a Boinc app for my Android, but maybe I was just dreaming...
2) Message boards : Cafe MilkyWay : How can I buy a Milkyway @ Home t-shirt? Can't afford to donate $100 ... (Message 62675)

I donated each time the request was made, however, I can't afford to donate $100 to get a free t-shirt. I would, however, love to purchase a t-shirt. Hey, it's free advertising for the cause, right? If anyone knows, please let me know. Thanks!
3) Message boards : News : Visualization/Screensaver Work (Message 56281)

Are there any graphics that are currently usable at this time? or is this something being worked on? Sorry if I'm asking a redundant question. I've been crunching for a couple of years here but never really have visited because there's nothing to look at to interest me and which can tell me how much we've done already, etc., like Seti@home has. I've been with them for years and love the graphics and screensaver. Just wanted to throw my two cents in and support the idea! Thanks!
4) Message boards : Cafe MilkyWay : Milkyway chit chat - drop in and say hello! (Message 55149)

I have a question: this is the first time I've visited the site but I've been running Milkyway@home for years. I also run Seti@home. Are there any graphic programs we can download to show what we're doing, i.e., like seti has = graphs, etc.? Thanks everyone for allowing someone like me to participate in something so important as this project!
