• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

The last time I participated in folding@home I ran out of disk space on my hard drive. The folding@home software kept adding data to a file which grew to over 20 gigs.

I ran F@H about a year or so ago for a few months. Never had any real problems with it, till it filled my hard drive. I'm not sure which software version I had running at the time, they probably fixed that problem by now.

I ran SETI for years, and it was great until Berkeley decided to make sweeping changes in the program to appease those that wanted to elbow their way in and do their work with the same application. They completely ignored millions of users and just went ahead with an implementation that holds the user responsible for other users failures, ie credit isn't awarded until the iterations have gone through multiple levels of users. At one point I had 5 machines running SETI, and a WU finished was a WU credited. That's not the case anymore...I dropped them a year ago, which is a damned shame considering how many billions of dollars users invested in multiple machines for the work, usually on dedicated PC's. No endeavor survives when those running it refuse to listen to their customer base. -Rod-
