So, technically, an under 16 year old is not supposed to sign up for Einstein?  Why forbid astrophysics from kids?  Hardly porn is it?

Where did you see that written?  I was not aware of an age limit for Einstein.

When I attached to Einstein

When I attached to Einstein in the normal way using Boinc Manager.  I had to get past one of those T&C screens.  It said I had to be old enough. First time I'd seen it, but I usually use Boinctasks or an account manager.

I think I saw that once a long time ago. Basically the computer is using electricity and kids signing up all the household computers would increase the monthly cost. So I guess that makes sense to make sure they are old enough or had parental consent to run it.  My opinion.

Yes that's where it is on the initial sign-up to crunch for Einstein pages. but I too am guessing Zalster is right about kids signing up without parents permission and then the electric bits comes and WHAT DID YOU DO happens.

Er yeah.... when I was a teenager (over 16!) I kinda made the phone bill £250 a month.  Internet didn't used to be always on.
