3/26 - 4/2

This is a stress test of the servers to see if the project can handle the additional load from a challenge.

If you still have the issue when you get home, could you try adding <http_1_0>1</http_1_0> to your cc_config file and see if it helps. I know it is normally for proxies, but it can't hurt to try. :D Keep us posted as the more info we can get on this the better for others in the future. You may also want to state which version you went from and which version you went to specifically including whether they were 32bit or 64bit versions in case there happens to be a correlation.

Neo, are you:
1. Using a proxy
2. What security software/firewall are you using?
3. having troubles with any other project?
4. trying to use a cc_config with any flags in it? (If using a proxy, I would suggest adding <http_1_0>1</http_1_0> if you haven't already)

I agree that I do not care for Credit New at all. Those projects do have an unfair bias that has turned quite a few of the bigger crunchers off to the projects that use it. I understand making things easier for the administrators, but I also feel that they need to keep their donors happy. Anyone can say a project was made for the donors, but as mentioned above there is no answer to how that really is. Prime numbers may be used in encryption, but lets face it, the mass majority of us are not suffering due to the lack of Prime numbers. So, I don't see a prime generating project to be for "us". A project that seems to be for "us" is WUProp as the data is very helpful to "us". A project like WCG that is putting out humanitarian research results could easily be argued as being for "us" even though that approaches a large grey area.

I think rebirther does a good job with the limited resources. However, as others have suggested, he needs to work on his organizational skills when it comes to information posted in the forums. I have a heck of a time at BU gathering the current information because it is so clustered. This may not be BU, but it seems to have a similar issue with information. This is very frustrating.

I have withheld contributing a lot here simply because it is new and going through the growing pains as many projects do. However, calling it a BETA project and justifying its failings in that way is just stupid IMO. I have argued this before as some project ride that "BETA" title for years. Technically all projects are always growing and refining. If you have live usable data, then you should be considered production. Again, that is my opinion. That doesn't mean they can't have BETA work. If a project is labeled ALPHA or BETA, to me that means they are ironing out their project and don't have production work going. Test servers should be used for that. A good example of a BETA project should be YAFU as they use the project for testing the latest BOINC server software on top of other work. It is used to test multi-threaded apps and how Credit New works.

Michael Goetz, there is no reason why you shouldn't continue posting. I think even if your comments are addressed to rebirther, others may learn from them.

If there is a Linux app, could this be put in the list of applications? Currently only Windows is listed.
