Hi,

I've noticed a serious degradation in the availability of work units since the server change-over a few weeks back. I'm now getting no units at all, despite repeated updating of the project.

My average work done has now gone down from around 17,000 to about 5,800 and I've had nothing in the past two days. I got one unit prior to the weekend, and that was it.

Is there an issue?

It is just my theory, but I think work is being run down as they work out how to make the current projects into sub-projects under the one banner, it will include Goofyxgrid and I think one other project as well, with possibly more to come.
A bit like what Community Science Grid did.

But I have heard nothing about this on this web-site only on the Goofyxgrid site, which also has cleaned out work units to make the change.

CSG, Citizen Science Grid is unified because the admin of all sub-projects is only one, Travis Desell.
Recent "union" of different project was not so good (drudiscovery@home)

Firstly we would like to unite BOINC@Poland projects together (slowly) to make some cost reducing.
(Mainly because the servers are on few rented servers and we now have some strong machines with lover cost)

DD@H and Universe are not B@P projects - just I'm from B@P team but this the projects are not my nor B@P.

So, on Universe nothing really change except applications, where I found unexpected problems (as usually, you should know this situation where everything works fine until you release it public).

The server status page says there are over 4k work units available, but BOINC keeps telling me that the project has no work available. Is anyone receiving work right now?

No, it's my fault...
I'm working on it...

I am also having the same issue where I am not receiving work. Not sure if its still because there are no work units or people ahead of me are grabbing them faster than I can. In either case I have my machines waiting for more once work will ramp up :)

I will generate loads of BHspin2 tasks soon, I just want to have clear server temporary for fixing other apps and templates for them

The 0.05 Universe Ultraviolet reionization work units are flowing now, and running nicely on my Linux (Ubuntu 16.10) i7-4770 machine. Two have been completed and seven others in progress with no problems.

Any chance of a Universe Ultraviolet reionization application for Raspberry Pi ? There used to be one that worked very well.
