Boy, they don't make it easy!

First I tried to create an account on the website. I kept getting that my CAPTCHA was invalid, even though Google seemed to think I was fine. Finally, I found this thread that suggested creating the account with BOINC manager. OK, that worked.

Now, I need to set up the TeAm. I go to do that, and it says:
Unable to handle request
You must complete a task to create a team
So now I'm downloading a 500MB WU just to complete a task. :mad:

I completed a task. Looks like maybe I can't create a TeAm until a task is validated. :mad::mad:

Shouldn't take long. I have a few waiting for validation, but most have been validated very quickly.

I got one done. :) Then Google ReCAPTCHA blocked team creation too. :( I posted on their message board.

Until we can get TAC established and TeAm AnandTech created, perhaps we should show some appreciation for @PDW and OcUK, and join their team.


EDIT: ....and now they are low on tasks. :(

It was fun while it lasted. Hopefully they'll add more work soon. I didn't get nearly as much as I would have liked to. Gotta feed my milestones addiction! :D

Don't know how long it will last this time, but the project admin just uploaded some new tasks.

They also fixed the credit algorithm so it gives the correct amount of credits now. Still a decent credit rate, but not ridiculously high like it was before.

Still can't create a team. Apparently marsinph (team BOINC.BE) has the same problem.

It looks like the dev fixed account and team creation. I was intending to just test it and (probably) get the error again, but it actually created the team. Let me know when you're ready to have the TAC account take ownership. :)
