And you pay more than the UK?  I thought ours was absurd, I pay 0.18 Euros per kWh.
0.18 if pretty cheap, think California $.40 when you use a bit more than average. Expensive and not reliable, like now they threaten to switch off large areas because of the fire hazard (lack of rain).

Any progress on BoincTasks for Android?
Even some sort of alpha status would be nice to test.
I'm getting closer, but it's an incredible amount of work.
Right now I'm removing all the bugs.
.. First impression is everything

For now i stuck with this version as it seem to work pretty well.
Not sure if I can get separate android build files.

I think those errors might be Einstein refusing an upload for a completed task - there have been a few complaints about that today. But a more 'user friendly' error message might be helpful.

Could we have a cheat-sheet for those State messages, please? I've got 00122 running, 01002 suspended by user. Also 1 for downloading, 4 for uploading, 5 for ready to report.

I'm very close to a full Functioning BoincTasks for Android.
The output is just for an indication what's going on, for the rest it's running and forget about it.
The icon now shows if the Client is running correctly.

State

"$hpState$gState$aState$sState$state"

hpState HP
gState Suspended
aState activeTask
sState scheduler state
state result state

Yes, that's the one.  I wanted to put my high priority projects at the top of the task list.  They're currently in alphabetical order.
Add to the list.

It's a very rare thing, and I think is related to overloading a computer.  I get weird stuff happening with LHC tasks as they use a lot of RAM, disk space, and internet bandwidth, and use Virtualbox which is taxing on the CPU.  The error "postponed" I think only occurs when it can't allocate a slot directory for a task, because it's already occupied.  All I could find is this:
A lot of things can go wrong in a Virtual box. It's probably easier to use a Linux program that way.
This is something you have to ask the project. They probably do something wrong, maybe something crashes.

I know this may be an odd thing to ask for, and maybe I'm the only one that wants it, but if you could add a tickbox to allow adding a column to show the project's weight, so I can sort by it, I'd be extremely happy :-)  I'm attached to 13 projects, some a lot higher weight than others, so it would be nice to see the important ones at the top of the list.
Like the Share% in the Projects tab?

Look what I've got!

didn't need to disable and re-enable

BTW, the WiFi address fields are labelled 1, 2, 2, 2
The 1,2,2,2 isn't only on the screen but in the code as well, causing interesting overwrites.
Any change you make results in a rebuild of the whole connection, so you do not use the disable, that was only for testing.

Maybe add a quick start screen in the manual. Like a screenshot and what to setup.

I need to do an orderly run down of the previous version, and then try attaching to a project - but looking good. Well done.
Thanks for testing, you did a great job catching interesting bugs.
There is one, that doesn't correctly retrieves the right allowed WiFi IP addresses at startup, but it works right after changing them.
I made a stupid copy paste error, easily to miss in a part that I trusted.

It's getting more chatty, but still doesn't like my WiFi:
I see, check the GUI setup. The WiFi IP doesn't match 192.168.173.185, maybe the wrong number or a space.
The logging shows 2 identical IP addresses, that's incorrect and rather misleading.

I see your second IP detection:
And I see the first IP is correct after all.... that's puzzling.
The GUI setup in this version isn't working anymore.... I'm working on 1.7, adding more logging and fixing the bug.
I tested it with the BOINC Manager, no problems there.
