Calibration movies consistently graded wrong

HELP? I've had four straight CMs judged wrong in the past few minutes. Spates of these errors have been going on for the past two weeks. Here is an example: I clicked on the plainly marked "track" in the upper left of this sample, and it was counted wrong. If that isn't a track, then I don't know a ...

cannot access VM samples consistently

Can someone help? I access VM, read a few samples, and the page goes blank where the sample should be. Today, June 13, has been particularly bad for me. I've been on VM just 15 minutes total. I've tried clearing cache, resetting security to "low," and restarting my computer. Nothing seems to work fo...

VM not loading reply

Thanks to Wolter, and others who have answered me. I'm sure your hints will be of value to others who have the same problem. I have a G-4 iMAC, with 40 GB HD unused, and plenty of memory---1120MB. Mac OS 10.4.9. Am on cable with medium fast service. I changed my security back to medium---it had chan...

problem focusing

I'm having the same problem. The sample "freezes" on my screen. I scroll down it but sample image does not change. I've tried reloading and that worked sometimes. Most of the time I have to log out, restart my iMAC and then the sample will respond to scrolling-focusing. Any way I can get out of the ...

VM sample will not load

Problem began suddenly May 30, 2007. I can sign in, access everything else on site, When I click on VM that window opens and the page loads. But the actual sample does not. There is a white area where the sample should be. I've tried rebooting, but that didn't help. Anyone help me with this? Thanks,...

Top 100 tribute

Thanks for giving us all the details about you and your work effort, Ronald C. Spencer. I poke along at two to three hours a day and rack up less than 100 score points daily, so I am a novice compared to you! You didn't give us your rank. Where are you in the rankings? I'm at rank #127 right now (3-...

Focus bar doesn't work

I've had the same problem, maybe, a dozen times in the seven months I've been dusting. Usually, clicking on STOP, and then RELOAD, will correct the problem. When that doesn't work, I've found I have to ESCAPE the session because it is frozen. Hope this helps. ERSTRS

When will project end?

Reply to MahFL, I've been dusting for seven months and am currently at rank #137. That means MahFL and I must be working close together. It would be nice to know who our nearby teammates are. Reply to xxxxxy, I, too am eager to hear an end projected. I would dearly love to see a list of the top 500 ...

top 200 dusters reply to rcschroter

Hang in there, fellow duster, you'll break out of the stalemate at 177 and move on up. I've hit what I thought was a solid brick wall several times, but by keeping working, I'd get ahead again. My score is now 10,212 and rank is #141. I was in Rank #144 for six entire days before moving out of it. D...

Publish list of top 200

Stardust@Home staff does an excellent job of keeping us informed and motivated to stay with the dusting. I think, however, if the list of top 200 were published too (as it was in the beginning) those of us in that group would appreciate their efforts since we have no chance of ever making the top 10...

photos of dusters

fflo, Thanks for your help. I'm a good "jerry rigger," and have managed to get this operable URL onto this forum. If anyone clicks on it, they will get my pic that my hubby took while I was this dusting this Saturday morning, Jan. 13, 2007. ERSTRS http://hometown.aol.com/erstrs/myhomepage/index.html

If my attempt at adding photo isn't successful, could someone tell me how to add a photograph? I have iMAC with iPhoto. THANKS. I joined the StarDust Team in August 2006. I’m an old Lab-Tech and I have not missed one day dusting since. I’ve loved every minute of it. My husband and I are resident...

Posting loading errors (Java script)

I agree that you will be swamped if everyone posts the Java script loading error messages. There are so many that I'd never get any dusting done if I took time to note them for you. I'd estimate that I average one error out of every 10 samples I try to read. On January 5th I averaged an error loadin...
