Hello,

I'm not getting any new projects or work units in the last few weeks. Is that normal or somehow my pc can't handle the new projects?

Thanks!

Adam

I have exactly the same problem... since I've installed (fyi: i'm using ubuntu 14.04) Boinc manager. Only "Charity Engine"  project is visible in my "Projects" tab:

That is the main project right now, which is keeping everything going. It might not be using much CPU but it's the most important one!

We are too big now for any regular BOINC project, we just overload their servers. We have also had trouble with projects having bugs, which our (non-techie) users absolutely do not tolerate - they just uninstall at the first sign of trouble.

Looking into how we can use just part of the grid for (well-tested, super-stable) projects in future.

Cheers,

Mark

Weirdly enough, I have plenty of Rosetta WU's stacked and waiting for my Quad Core to work on them...

In fact, I have 2.19 GB of Rosetta work showing when I check the disk usage by BOINC section...

I am getting "credit" here at CE for this work, right?

Thanks,

Ed

Sorry if this has been discussed, but isn't WCG large enough to handle the demand? Why not run their humanitarian based work?

Adam,

I see your Windows-based computers running just fine. As for your Linux-based computers - we do not currently have work for them, but that should change soon (I'm thinking a few weeks).

Hi Guys,

Are you doing some maintenance, because I'm not getting new work units and I see this message in the log:
