Thanksgiving - Celebrated the 4th Thursday of November.
In the United States, Thanksgiving is a four day weekend which usually marks a pause in school and college calendars. Most business and government workers (78% in 2007) are also given both Thanksgiving and the day after as paid holidays. Families and friends gather for a reunion, a day of thanks, and a festive meal.

Thanksgiving meals are traditionally family events where certain kinds of food are served. First and foremost, turkey is the featured item in most Thanksgiving feasts (so much so that Thanksgiving is sometimes facetiously referred to as "Turkey Day"). Stuffing, mashed potatoes with gravy, sweet potatoes, cranberry sauce, corn, turnips, and pumpkin pie are commonly associated with Thanksgiving dinner. Often guests bring food items or help with cooking in the kitchen as part of a happy, communal meal.

In keeping with the holiday theme of giving thanks, during the socializing or meal, people talk about what they are thankful for or tell about experiences during the past year which have caused them to feel grateful.

One of the long-standing traditions of distributed computing projects is the formation of teams.

Not just a tradition, a little healthy competition encourages active participation, to the general gain of the project.

Team USA was created to show we have American pride and that good ol' American know-how is still a reality.
If you're a patriotic American, this is the team to join.
If you're not an American at all, you're still welcome.
This has always been a country with open arms.

I tried again today to attach to Ralph. Here's what I got :

16/02/2006 20:59:19|ralph@home|New host venue: home
16/02/2006 20:59:19||General prefs: from ralph@home (last modified 2006-02-16 00:11:12)
16/02/2006 20:59:19||General prefs: no separate prefs for work; using your defaults
16/02/2006 20:59:19|ralph@home|Successfully attached to ralph@home
16/02/2006 20:59:19||Suspending computation and network activity - user is active

Check your preference settings. Your host is set to 'home' on ralph , but the hosts boinc is trying to use 'work' and no preferences exist on ralph for 'work' so it defaults to the general preferences.
Create the settings you want for this host under the 'work' venue for general preferences.
Probally the don't do work if user is active is set under the general settings so thats why it stopped all work.

I am testing this with host 34
I have a 30 minute time slice so all work units should get swapped out at least once.

the fisrt wuid 1410 result 1445 finished after 00:57:53, but has not been reported yet.

the second wuid 1373 result 1408 shows a computational error after 00:55:38 run time. At 07:53:33 AM it was paused (removed from memory), Then at 07:53:34 AM it shows unrecoverable error ( - exit code -164 (0xffffff5c)) and then finished.

I have 15 more to process. I am going on vacation, sorry bad timing, I will let them run and they will be reported when finished but I will not be able to comment on them. but I'm set for no more work so only those now showing for my one host will run. When I return I can do more and put some of my other krunchers on this too.
