    I have been trying to get work for a couple of weeks with no success. the last post on the main page is 184 days old...

    If you are not going to maintain the project at least say so, Please...

              Would be nice to get some sort of update as to whether this project is going to go on, or going under.

                Be nice to see some work for even a few days. I (and others) are a whisker away from 1 million credits :)

                Perhaps the project has reached it's goal? It would be nice to know :)

                I'd be sorry to see this project go - Was working very nicely on my old, slow hosts. Back to Mersenne for the forseeable future I guess.

                      Ahhh a sign of life! Thx for giving feedback ... I guess visitors of the homepage would feel more comfortable if they could read some updates in the twitter/newsbox. 191 days old news are not very attractive.

                      Let's hope the project come back activity soon. We can understand downtimes, personal and technical problems, but we are curious people ... we want to know what is going on.

                      So if you are trying to improve communication skills, try to post at least once per month - even if there will be no breaking news. So everyone is aware that the project and its admins are still alive.

                        Once a week would be more like it.
                        How long does it take to post a couple of lines?
                        Its just common courtesy.

                                    This virtual machine doesn't have enough disk place, so I have to stop the work generator to prevent an out of disk space error.

                                    I'm working to move this virtual machine to the university, to get much more space, memory and CPU.

                                    Sorry for that ...

                                          I wonder why it's not possible to clean up the server, so that results can be uploaded and reported before the server is being moved.

                                          At the moment 34,228 workunits are in progress. If these results can't be reported, the cpu time has been wasted. :-(

                                            Yes, it would be nice to return the completed work. I only have 75 hours worth, so I'm not too concerned. I've lost much more on other projects :)

                                            Nevertheless, can you run the server for just a day to let us all clear our backlogs?

                                              Nevertheless, can you run the server for just a day to let us all clear our backlogs?

                                              Of course this would be nice... :-)

                                                Well, I'm not keep completed work that expires in a day or 2 till January, I detached from the project. We'll see how things run after the new year when things are supposed to be up and running, maybe I'll re-attach.

                                                  the primaboinca server will be down until 01.01.2012. we're now moving all the data to a new server. sorry for that ...


                                                  Upload/Download server is working now, new work has been generated ... did you change your mind?

                                                      I still cannot upload. Is it still broken? Or broken again?

                                                          Ahoi Fabio,
                                                          also können die fertigen WU's noch hochgeladen werden und sind trotz des eventuell abglaufenen Datum gültig?

                                                          Habe gesehen, daß einige Leute ihre Arbeit noch hochgeladen haben.
                                                          Da auch ich noch einiges in der Pipeline habe wäre es schade, wenn die schon verrichtete Arbeit verloren gehen würde.

                                                          Hoffe sehr, daß bei Dir alles klappt und das Projekt Primaboinca den Serverwechsel gut überstehst.

                                                              Also ich hab hier 3 Rechner voll mit fertigen Wu´s bis zum Anschlag.
                                                              Wäre nett, wenn ich die noch hochladen könnte.
                                                              Zudem hätte man vorher eben einfach keine Arbeit mehr ausgeben sollen, dann hätten wir jetzt das Problem nicht.
                                                              Wenn ich hier jetzt über tausende von Credits in den Wind schießen muss, wird dieses Projekt wohl für mich leider nicht mehr in Frage kommen.
                                                              Ich hoffe, dass dies noch geregelt wird

                                                                  could just upload a few of my results, server is working, got also credit for this results.
                                                                  If there is enough space on server, results will upload till server space is full again. And so on.
