Not sure how reliable the status page is.
It seems to always say tasks ready to send = 2.
Rather unusual for a BOINC project to run dry which makes me wonder how serious these people are ?


Lots of projects run short from time to time, it depends on their funding levels and if they do it themselves or if they depend on grants etc. The more independent the project the more likely it is to run out of tasks at times. Add in the hardware problems and you have times where most projects will go down for a short to longer period of time.

Hello Peter and Bill,
thank you both for your help. I found a button on the einsteinathome website about that consent und it has the default "No". I changed it. Now I have to search in all the other projects too. Thanks for the list, Bill.


The biggest problem is there is there is no standard place they put it, so you have to search thru everything to find it at each site.

How hard would it be to develop one?


Apparently it's a bear and there are only a few people that can do it and sinc most projects don't have much money they can't pay people to do it.

Ok.

Is only some resend ready to go at the moment, I'm also strongly work with MySQL server as database are growth rapidly recently (so, I have to remove some old results to get it back correctly).

We will not create new job until work on new app finishes and it takes while until UW team finish their work on it and I will port application to BOINC.

I hope this not takes to long.


Thank you!!

Website shows 1000 tasks available but when I ask for tasks on my pc I get this:

7/27/2015 12:26:10 PM | Universe@Home | Project has no tasks available

Besides being painfully slow it doesn't work!!!

Maybe I should think about updating my Client? Nah, not just yet, that is a job for another day.

Yes you REALLY should and sooner rather than later. Your Windows pc's can handle the newer versions just fine, you may have to exhaust your cache first though as you would be going from version 6 to version 7 of Boinc. There have been a ton of 'improvements' since the versions you are using.
