Breaking News,

Amalgamated Union of Servers calls for a rolling strike in its current dispute with Mgmt over Xmas working hours.

As a result of the industrial action the E@H upload server has withdrawn its labour for an unknown period!

Management are commencing talks with the Union in the morning..

Well its a bit of an attempt at humour anyway:-)

Regards,

Cliff,

Nice one Cliff, that gave me

Nice one Cliff, that gave me a laugh too. What's weird is that I have some uploads stalled in backoff on one system, yet it just allowed me to download new work. I always thought that BOINC wouldn't let you get new work if you had uploads pending. Hope they clear out soon or before I have new tasks completed to upload that won't just add to the queue.

Cheers, Keith

Just checked again in

Just checked again in BoincTasks and still haven't been able to upload the results from 15 tasks I have completed. Some have as many as 8 retries so far. I guess my lottery number hasn't come up yet in the upload pool.

More breaking

More breaking news,

Bribery is strongly suspected, as rumours circulate that an as yet un-named 'other' project has gotten to the AUoS shop steward with promises of great gifts of RAC if [s]he calls another outage..

Remember you heard it HERE 1st:-)

[continuing the fine press tradition of reporting unverified sensationalist stuff]
