Hey Everyone,

In preparation for the migration to the new server, we will be pausing the generation of new workunits today. This does not mean that we will stop sending out workunits. Instead, it means that the only workunits being sent out will be those needing cross validation. Hopefully, this will allow us to clear the workunit validation queue by Tuesday morning and simplify our transition process.

This may also mean that at somepoint this weekend or on Monday, there will be very few workunits left on the server to process. This is expected.

Best,

Jake

Hello,

I noticed that I don't have any tasks at this time, or work units. Is this related to the server migration? I am new to this, so I am not quite sure how it works.

No the transition to the new server is complete.

According to your profile you are participating in three different projects, including MilkyWay. There could be a few things happening here you may want to check:

-Resource share: Unless you have modified these values, they should all be at 100. If by chance you have changed this to 0, you will not get any tasks unless you have no work available from other projects.
-You set the project to 'no new tasks', which means any tasks you had would have been worked on, but your computer would not request any new ones.
-It could be something else. Could you provide more information? If you have the output of your event log, that may help as well. Are you getting new tasks for your other projects?
