Yep, we found a handful of beams on the floor when we cleaned up under the tables.

But no really new data from Arecibo (yet).

Found some more? I got a new one today and the status page shows that I am not the only one.

Great! 'Fresh' fresh, as in newly recorded after the repairs, or just a batch that got stuck in transit?

Well, fresh for us, arrived from Cornell yesterday, but was taken before the earthquake. My last info about Arecibo is from a PALFA-internal mail saying that they expect to be fully operational again in mid March.

Hi, I didn't want to open a new thread for this, cause I don't think it is a major problem. Usually my system is very stable and I even can't remember the last workunit that errored out. However, today one showed an "error while computing". I'm just curious about what caused the error. Maybe somebody can identify the problem.
Btw: I run BRP4s on my NVIDIA 610m (one at a time) and on my Intel HD4000. From time to time I also run some Seti CPU tasks.

Welcome. You can learn quite a lot about things like that by following the links on your account page, first to your computers, and then to the tasks that the computer has processed.

To save you time, I found Error tasks for computer 6684045 - just one of them.

Normally, we'd take further discussion out of the news area and into Cruncher's Corner, but the error message is interesting and worth posting here.

I don't think there's anything for you to worry about there - just one of the random glitches that happens from time to time.
