Finally my RAC is over 100, so tried to create my profile since I am now allowed to, but after entering the text about me and selecting a photo and doing the CAPTCHA, clicking the submit ends up displaying a blank page with an error text about not being able to open a socket.

I didn't know it would be so hard to create a profile on CAS@Home...

3 months and 9 days later, still: "Could not open socket". What is going on here? One is able to try to create a profile from the Account page, the http://casathome.ihep.ac.cn/create_profile.php page does come up, one can enter the text, browse for and add a photo, and enter the CAPTCHA, but clicking on the Create button at the bottom churns a while before giving the above error. Seems like something that can and should be fixed quickly.

Thanks
Tuna

Well this project has it's problems. The one involving uploading completed w/u's before they "expire" seems to be resolved; at least for the time being. However, the forums are still on "ignore" status of things to do. I finally have a RAC high enough to create a profile. But now I'm seeing the "Cannot open socket" response. I suppose another email to the only person that responded to my "blanket" email to the "people in charge" is now in order.
