Well, we agree. Use of the optimized client should stop, and I fully support your plea for reverting to the official client.

NickOfTime has done a great job in showing what can be achieved, and I certainly hope the project will work with him when building an official optimized app..and I hope it will happen soon :)

Hold your horses. I agree, anyone still using the unofficial client should think it over, again...and again.

But, Some people are running several systems, which may not be available to them at all times. So, it might take some time to revert to the official client. Also, DPC has their annual stampede going on, so there will be users getting a very high score with the official client.

As far as I can see, most users in that top-10 have had a large increase in daily credit for a few days, but numbers are going down. Remember, due to validation of their WU's, the daily points will take a while to decrease. There are a bunch of users in that top-10 I know for a fact have either reverted to the official client, or never used the optimized one at all.

So, let's wait for a few days before naming and shaming, please.

Don't get me wrong, I fully agree that running an optimized client is simply NOT DONE if the project says no.

Sure, but he may have overlooked the fact that there is a question mark in the filename. Just trying to help out.

It's not so odd I think...Since the WU's have a question mark in their name, BOINC tries to create a file with a question mark in the name. This is not possible (at least on windows, dunno about other OS) since the question mark is not an allowed character in a filename.

Same here. Seems like the question mark in the filename is causing this. But BOINC seems to not fetch any other work once your system encountered this error.

Aboring the offending downloads seems to clear things up...untill the next error comes up :(

Guess those WU's with the question mark in the name will have to be removed from the system by the project admin. As far as I have seen, they have very different names than the WU's that work OK. So far, all failing WU's have names starting with ESO558-PN?.
