    “Sorrow comes to all...Perfect relief is not possible, except with time. You cannot now realize that you will ever feel better and yet you are sure to be happy again.”

    Abraham Lincoln


    After helping those that need you, comes the most difficult moment of grief, when you are alone and then for the fist time it comes the silence and the pain for those that you have lost forever in this land.

    I needed to be alone and in silence to feel, to ear my own sorrow and speak with my own grief,

    It is with great sadness that came to my knowledge that our friend Dr Dan is passing for difficult moments as he did in the past.

    Dan you always fight for your ideals and took care of the Team Musketeers since the start, so you are not man to give up to your illness. You will be in my prayers and on my small talks with God. I will ask Him for you, for your health and to give you the strengh you need to pass this dificult moment.

    I ask all friends of every team to crunch for the Team Musketeers for a while and put a smile on Dr Dan face. So, when you can dedicate a week of your crunching to our friend and former member of our team.

    It is always a good time to found peace in our hearts and give peace and joy to others.

    Does the team fired me? 15 posts is much even for me.

    Maybe I can go on vacations for a while.

    Re: Duke the menace

    I am tired of pushing the update button and looking for apps or cc_configs all the time.

    BOINC community was made for people that WANT TO HELP but have NO SPECIAL SKILLS to do it. Some projects and project administrators are making of BOINC a real hell, a big confusion of choices and options.

    It is for the projects and their administrators to give the best options to RUN BOINC on CPU or GPU. I dont intend to give lessons for people that are here for so many years but the reallity is that BOINC is getting worst for the common users day by day.

    Of each 10 persons that come to help, 8 just go away, it is not that there are less people with the intention to help, if that was true we shouldnt have people working on SETI anymore because SETI is a basic project that people just download and IT WORKS.

    There are projects that just dont work except if we push the update button or have the right apps, download the effective libraries, or look for a good cc_config, it is too much for the common user that just want to HELP.

    Afterall does BOINC needs help or not because this way looks that we are doing a favor to the projects running them. It is time for administrators look for solutions to make the projects run on THE MOST SIMPLE WAY.

    I agree, if BOINC wants users, the need to keep things as simple and easy as possible. I can usually manage to get things to work but I'm not as good at this stuff as I used to be... I've forgotten way too much.
