1) Message boards : Number crunching : "Cannot open socket" while trying to create profile??? (Message 18634)
Posted 837 days ago by Profile Tuna Ertemalp
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

3 days later, still the same problem. Is any admin watching these message boards?

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...

8) Message boards : Number crunching : Unfair that creating a profile requires 100 recent average credits, yet there is not enough WUs to collect that... (Message 18614)

I signed up a bit more than two weeks ago, but during all that time only 64 tasks were sent to some of my 8 machines, all of which got returned after churning, and only 56 of them got any credits since 8 of them ended up with a computation error, receiving 0 credits. All that work collected just 54.68 RAC for a total of 987 credits. And, when I try to create a profile, it says "To prevent spam, an average credit of 100 or greater is required to create or edit a profile. We apologize for this inconvenience."

That is a bit frustrating. All of the other 40+ projects I am churning for and created a profile for either didn't have that limit, or had a limit based on total credits (many just 1 credit, i.e. you have run and returned at least 1 WU), not RAC. Clearly someone with 8 machines and 987 credits is not a spammer, and using 100 RAC as the bar to entry while not sending out WUs is a bit overly protective.

Thanks for listening
