<i>Here is my transaltion, not exactly word by word, but you should understood the most interesting parts.</i>

<b>Seems we have found our Slavic translator!</b>

JaiL, do you have some time on your hands for other translations on this site?

These last several posted wu's are old news...in the past.
We have all 'wasted' more CPU time than all these put together.

The exciting thing here is it seems the problem is solved for the future.
I see no unexplained 0 credit for wu's issued yesterday or today.
Maybe this small pain is over!

<i>The platform problem is back?</i>
Nope, I don’t think so now.
Taking a closer look at latest results shows many 0 credits for same platform.
Seems similar to 0 credit problem in other projects a few months ago except this time BOINC is not reporting 0 CPU time.
I think the fix back then was to use updated code for both server and apps.

<i>Strange, because there are 3 successful results for WU 639</i>
The platform problem is back? There is a Mac in that group.
Here is another wu with same symptom but linux was the different OS.

There are many other examples.
15) Message boards : Észrevételek, tapasztalatok : Underestimation on Completion times...!!! (Message 655)

<i>We now have 4 days for deadlines, if you start complaining about it's too short, I'll commit suicide :)</i>

Ahhh... You understand the BOINC community fully now :)
But do not suicide. That is not funnn. Try to remember that after some complaints come better clients and apps. And then on to other complaints. And then more tweaks. That is funnn…

<i>Please note that estimating how many cycles a program will do (which is needed for the estimated time) is a hard job, nearly impossible. So correcting the estimated time is a thing that if I'll ever do, I'll only start when everthing else is smmothly running...Sorry</i>

No BOINC project estimates correctly. May be an impossible goal for some projects.
John McLeod VII says below
<i>if the time is underestimated, the estimate should jump up to whatever the actual time was for the next result.</i>
So at least the client is trying to help this situation.
16) Message boards : Észrevételek, tapasztalatok : 11 Dim. WU, Change Deadline? (Message 621)

<i>why are units with deadlines shorter than my connect to downloading they should not...

<b>There are two reasons. The first is that the latest server code has (stupidly IMO) turned this off. The second is that even with this on, you could get one WU (again stupid IMO).</b></i>

Yes. At 1st i considered a gift. Now it becomes a pain.
But Adam will eliminate these problems by increasing deadline!
I cast a vote for 6 days.

&gt; I cannot understand why ~7days are "better" for the new scheduler than 10
&gt; days.
&gt; in my opinion 10 days are a longer time than 7 or 4 days, so i had to get
&gt; more work!
&gt;
The logic used by BOINC is that if you say you will connect next in 10 days a wu that wants to be back in 4 days will be overdue and maybe a waste of CPU time. Better not download says BOINC. It is smart enough to give you 1 wu. Consider it a gift.

&gt; I walked through this wiki - up and down - I think it's a little bit more clear for me now.

Yes. This wiki is an awesome effort.

@ <b>Attila Csaba Marosi</b>. <a href="http://boinc-doc.net/boinc-wiki/">BOINC Wiki</a> is worth a link from the mainpage.

Maybe the huns can get in touch with Paul D. Buck and offer input.

<i>If anybody can tell me what have changed in higher versions give me a link pls.</i>

Unfortunately a list of changes is not available at the moment. Most efforts are focused on improving code.
If you are interested and have some time you can browse the <a href="http://www.ssl.berkeley.edu/pipermail/boinc_dev/"> boinc_dev archives </a> to get an idea of some of the areas being worked on.

Last few versions I see the CPU scheduler getting smarter and BOINC Manager being more dial-up friendly.
Lots to be done yet, but in general (and ignoring the snags along the way) BOINC gets better with each release.

Since this project wants results back in about 4 days, you must set prefs to connect less than 4 days.
