I have 15 pc's and even though PrimeGrid is suspended on some of them I STILL get 'Notices' from PG about anything and everything, on EVERY ONE OF THEM!! I tried turning off the Notices in my settings but I cannot! I CAN change it so I get an immediate or delayed email. but that is not what I want either!! I do not mind getting them on ONE pc, but to have to see the SAME Notice on every single pc I own is just ridiculous!! What about those people that own 50 or 300 pc's, this is annoying! Can't you add a setting to NOT get Notices altogether, or even change it so only the last pc that was connected on an account gets the Notice, not every single one of them?

I was about to say, "This is a BOINC client issue and is something we have absolutely no control over", but decided to check first to see if there was some method I'm not aware of for disabling the notices -- and sure enough, there is.

In the BOINC manager GUI (*not* our website), click on Tools->Options... and then on the general tab there's a Notice reminder interval setting. Try changing that to "never".

That's supposed to suppress the notices. I don't know if it works the way I think it should.

I only run BOINC on at most 3 computers and I find the notices annoying too, so I definitely understand your frustration.

That is one of those little settings I do for every pc now, and I am still getting the notices. It works to suppress the little 'lack of internet' notice that pop up when a wire is loose or your provider has a problem.

I'm a bit confused now, because no notices have been sent out since I suggested making that setting "never".

Is the problem that you're getting the notices the correct number of times, except that you're getting them on every PC and you would prefer to get them on only one machine? Or is the problem that you're getting them more than once on every machine?

(Also, please understand that PrimeGrid doesn't send notices to anyone. The BOINC client that is running on your computer (which you downloaded from BOINC, not PrimeGrid) is fetching the news off of our server. We have no control over that software, including when or if it fetches the news. This isn't a "not my job!" kind of situation; I just want to point out that we have limited control over what the BOINC client on your computer does. As far as I know, the only reason you'll see more notices from PrimeGrid is because we're a lot more active than most BOINC projects and there's a lot of news to report.)

The problem is that EVERY machine gets them, I have NOT gotten any since the one about the "Tour de Primes" on the 29th. I am NOT getting multiple instances of each message on each machine, just EVERY machine gets the exact same message. How many time do I need to see it before I couldn't care less about it anymore?

Collatz went down for several days, as did Asteroids and I got NO messages from them. I do NOT care if I got one message, but I check EVERY pc EVERY day and when I see the same exact message 15 times it is more then a bit annoying!!

I am only crunching PG on three machines right now, but I will bring others back as soon as I reach a goal elsewhere. I was hoping not to have to detach and then reattach each and every machine each time I suspend and then want to start crunching for a project again. Boinc is designed to just sit there and patiently wait for me to "resume" crunching for a project again, but the Messages are NOT suspending! AND even when I am crunching full time for PG I still do NOT want to get the exact same message on each pc attached!

I hear you, and agree 100%. Unfortunately, we (or any other BOINC project) have no control over this behavior as far as I know. If you are aware of projects out there that don't behave this way and you only see the notice on a single computer, please let me know and we'll try to make that happen here.

Other than that, I can suggest two courses of action for you.

The first is to bring this to the attention of the BOINC developers on their forums. Click on "Help->BOINC Website" in the BOINC manager.

Second, if you're so inclined, download the source for the BOINC manager and modify the code so it doesn't fetch news articles from projects. It should be a simple change and likely involves commenting out a single line of code somewhere. You can then run that on 14 of your 15 machines. The downside is you'll have to do that again each time you want to upgrade BOINC.

If TheDawgz understand the issue (we make no guarantees that we do) ...

TheDawgz are running BOINC V 7.2.7 under Ubuntu and we don't see messages unless we explicitly click on the "Notices" tab and never get reminders that there are unseen/new messages.

We eliminated the "message reminders" as follows:
From the Boinc Manager (GUI) click TOOLS, OPTIONS, GENERAL and via the drop down list change "Notice reminder interval:" to NEVER and then click OK.

Hopefully this will work for you as well - if it does please feel free to send us a few virtual belly rubs!

If TheDawgz understand the issue (we make no guarantees that we do) ...

TheDawgz are running BOINC V 7.2.7 under Ubuntu and we don't see messages unless we explicitly click on the "Notices" tab and never get reminders that there are unseen/new messages.

We eliminated the "message reminders" as follows:
From the Boinc Manager (GUI) click TOOLS, OPTIONS, GENERAL and via the drop down list change "Notice reminder interval:" to NEVER and then click OK.

Hopefully this will work for you as well - if it does please feel free to send us a few virtual belly rubs!


As discussed a few messages ago in Windows that only seems to stop the 'no internet' notices that happen when either a wire is loose or the net goes down by the provider, it does NOT stop the "tour de primes" type messages that I am getting even if the project is suspended on the pc.

Sorry about that!!
TheDawgz should have paid better attention while reading -

We just tried something - have no idea if it will solve the problem or not under windows - but this didn't cause any problems with Boinc under Ubuntu.

TheDawgz take no responsibility if this makes a mess of things!!

Find the notices subdirectory (Under Ubuntu it is in /var/lib/boinc-client) remove the ability for anyone to read or write to it as well as all the files contained within the notices directory.
Restart Boinc.

In our case everything started back up just fine with no errors or complaints and our notices tab is now empty with a notice count of zero.

The above is UGLY and we have no idea if this will cause problems under windows, older or newer versions of Boinc, or even fix the problem for you. We hope it does!!!

Windows has one too..c:\programdata\boinc\notices I will try it today on one machine and see if they are blocked on that machine, THANKS!! What I am thinking of trying is just restricting access to the PG one, I have two an archived one and an active one, I might try restricting access to the active one and see what happens. Then block the whole directory if that doesn't work and it just creates another .xml file.
THANK YOU!!

IT WORKED, IT WORKED!!!!

I made the file c:\programdata\boinc\notices\www.primegrid,com_notices.php.xml read only on one pc and I did NOT get the most recent notice on it!! But it did come thru on all the other pc's. Thank you VERY much!!!! That is EXACTLY what I wanted!! I can now go thru and make the file read only on all my pc's but one, and until I detach from PG and then reattach, I should be okay.
Thanks again!!!

I'm sure everyone running BOINC on more than one PC will find this to be useful information.

Altering the single file is a much cleaner solution than our brute force fix!

Yeah I hope it stays fixed now, it would also be nice if the projects would get DA to change the 'system' so it does something about it as opposed to us playing with the file system.
THANKS!
