I've just attached to BURP, but I've noticed that when I use boinc manager, the project name is so large (BURP big and ugly rendering project). Could you just use BURP? I know that it's more an aesthetical wish than a practical one.

Thanks,

G

What happens to the BOINC manager when the name is so large?

Nothing at all. Just that you have to make the project name column wider to see the whole name. Forget it, it was just a design wish.

Oh, no - it wasn't ment like that. The reason I ask is because I don't run the BOINC manager myself, so I don't know what it looks like.

I don't have where to place a screen shot, but I have a keyboard... Here you have more or less how it looks: :-)

project | Account | Team |....
====================================================
SETI@Home | groucho | Pirates@Home |
LHC@Home | groucho | Catalunya |
BURP - Big...| groucho | Catalunya |

So, in order to see the whole BURP project name I have to maximize the window and then make the project column wider.

I would agree also.

The long name is fine for a webpage where people may not know what BURP means.
In the BOINC CC, the user already knows what BURP means.
The project column info should be short and sweet to get the project name across to the reader.

The project name shown in the client has been changed to "BURP".
I guess you will see this change next time there is any work.

You may have to "reset project" or something like that, but please don't try it before there is any work. Thanks for the feedback!

nope all you have to do is hit "update" as long as the servers are up it will change on connection.

All i can say is thanks you.

And i confirm that "update" the project or "mettre à jour le projet" for me has set it right. But too many people doing that might not be so wise.
Project suspended for now.
