Hi all,

I am a long time runner of U@H, but recently I have had one particular work unit sitting on 70.985% for quite some time. I am wondering if other users have a similar issue?

I run Windows 11, 8GB RAM, AMD Athlon Gold 3150U CPU if that is any help.

I tried to upload a screenshot of what was happening, but there is no option to upload files.

It is rare to have a Universe tasks stall out. I would abort it and continue.

There is no direct option to upload screenshots.

There is the standard option in the BBCode menu to mark a URL as an image.

So you need to upload your screenshot to a image hosting service and then get the URL for the image and post that in your reply with it marked with the BBCode delimiter of <img></img>

Likewise- i've never had Universe Task stall.
In the past on other projects if i've had a Task stall for longer than it's expected runtime, i'd exit BOINC, give it 20-30 seconds & then restart. If the Task gets stuck again, then i'd abort it.
Once or twice the Task has completed normally, but most times it's had to be aborted.

I ended up aborting the task anyway. It was well overdue in any case.

Thank you all for your help and suggestions.
