Hi all,
I got quite a lot of Downloading Errors by albert on Windows platform. Works well on Linux. Which version of BOINC Manager albert app requires?

Everybody who has this problem lives in the same timezone(mid european) and tries connect to einstein.aei.mpg.de when downloading the app.
I'm not sure of this yet,but if you change your timezone in your computer (try UK or something) to try to download from the UK server.(Let me know if it works.)
My albert works alright on all my 4 boxes but I got "couldn't connect to host[einstein.aei.mpg.de]" on every box,so I think my downloads might have come from another server(probably UK).

Pay attention on "Couldn't connect to hostname [einstein.aei.mpg.de]".

This machine has BOINC 5.2.7 version. Hope now everything will work OK. Will se in about one hour, when I finish my einstein WU. Will keep you all posted.

I'll try tomorrow with my office machines. Hope I will succeed with them too, so I can resume crunching for E@H at full speed.

Congrats Edo. I think your on dry land now. :)
The trick is to download when you can't reach the german server. :) (at least till they fix it.)

For me it looks like when using Albert there is much more activity on my hard drive.

I see the same thing. My system started running Albert units this morning, and is doing a disk write every 5 seconds. My preferences are set for 60 seconds and I'm still within my actual system memory (with swap space showing 0% in use).

Just to report back... finally Albert works fine on at least one of my machines! Hope tomorrow I will manage to make it work on other machines too.

Just being interested in Albert: What exactly does Improved (all-sky pulsar search) mean? (I don't refer to the WUs) Or is this a secret?
Thx in advance

Read the 1st post in this thread, including the Q&A section. I've got a batch of Alberts that have 17% less estimated runtime than Einsteins. 1st one should be starting ~noon tommorrow if I've got the timing right (my cores are currently half a work unit out of sync, drifting closer/farther depending on the vagarities of which core windows decides to use for housekeeping tasks.)
