Haven't ever gotten any tasks. What is the problem?

I reattached to the project three days ago, and got only a single work unit that day. But it has slowly been building up, and I am now running five, with another waiting to start. So either more work is being sent out, or else the BOINC scheduler has finally gotten the message.

Someone a few replies back had mentioned that they were running XP but not getting any work... For what it's worth I'm running XP as well and have been getting plenty of work for about a week and a half now.

Message 587 - Posted: 12 Oct 2015, 14:36:23 UTC - in response to Message 577.  

I am running Win7 64-bit with BOINC 7.6.9, and six cores of an i7-4790, and have been getting too much work for the last week or two. I have 110 jobs downloaded now, and it seems to be preventing ATLAS from downloading more. I have ATLAS and vLHC set at 200 percent resource share, and Universe at 100 percent (also Einstein at 100 percent, but they are out of work for the last week or two). I have just reduced Universe to 20 percent resource share, and hope that it straightens out soon.

My buffer settings are only 0.5 day minimum, 0.5 day additional, so there should not be so much from any project.
