The most reasonable explanation is a TYPO in the project files. Someone fatfingered a "t" into a "f" - which is not too hard to do since they are next to each other on the keyboard.


How careless they are! A number of people are contributing their computational power to MilkyWay@Home without and charge and MilkyWay@Home just work so casually. They clearly understand that if they loose you, they will have other people. So they don't even care about your feeling. I have already quit, and before they solve the problem, I will not be back.


Actually, it's not fat-fingering at all, as I discovered by getting the application source from github and trying to remember my C/C++ programming from 20+ years ago!...

For more information, I refer you to my response to Chris's post entitled "Fix it or I'm gone" in the MilkyWay@home Science board. Whilst it doesn't make the issue go away, it does try to explain it and point out a possible solution...

Cheers - Al.

P.S. I'm just a user, like you folks...

P.P.S. How many (full time or otherwise) programmers and technical staff do you think this project has?


Interesting. I have already read that. Any it seems that nobody from M@H dare to come and reply.

Does anyone know why I cannot go into my account task page? I can log into my account normally, but I am having such issure for more than a week.
