The project's homepage says " You can download a climate model from this website. It will run automatically as a background process on your computer whenever you switch your computer on."

When I try to run the thing I get the error message "No work available(there was work but you don't have enough disk space allocated)."

I just read through many many dozens of forum messages ... and this is /mentionned/ now and again ... and folk talk about setting preferences.

Setting preferences? Where?

The startup documentation says "Will run autonamtically" ... I've crawled the interface and have found no place to set the preferences.
Wierdly clumsy

Hi and Welcome

If you go to the 'Your Account' in the left hand menu then to View or edit general preferences, the three preferences dealing with hard disk space are there.

And CPDN requires a lot of disk space.
You can check <a href="http://climateapps2.oucs.ox.ac.uk/cpdnboinc/forum_thread.php?id=1835">this thread</a>.
Or use the link to the right of my signature to search the forum for things like disk space.
