darn. i've been getting the same problem myself. the weird thing is that there are available workunits but they aren't being downloaded for some reason.

I did a project 'reset' followed by a scheduler update, looks like it went fine communications-wise, but no new program and no new work came down the pipe.

Same here, No Work From Project messages, but I was finally able to upload about 40 WUs.

what i'm thinking is the server might be being flooded with uploaded workunits so it's not being able to make any available for the time being. the assimilator is crunching through a whole bunch of work units at the moment so i'm hoping once that gets done work will be available. if not then i got a bit of figuring out to do :P

The other possibility that i THINK might be going on -- is that when the current version of the binaries got uploaded and the shared memory problem happened, they didn't get put into the system correctly. So Joe is going to try and sign and update binaries one more time, and hopefully these will get in there correctly and then people can download work (if it doesn't happen in the meantime).

Hmmm... did you purge the DB of completed wu's at the same time or something? The only wu's left under my account either had trouble downloading the new binaries or are 'phantom' wu's that never made it to my machine. All of the valid work is gone....

weird, what i'm showing from the DB is that there are around 800 or so available workunits. i think the reason that they're not downloading is because there isn't a valid binary for them as far as the server knows (due to our previous problems). Joe is TAing until 8pm tonight, so hopefully when he gets back there we can get the binary problem fixed.

At least 3. Joe is an undergrad working for us and unfortunately it's final exam time so he's very busy, but i'll keep bugging him until we get things working again :)

If you say so, I'm not getting any new work anyway.
I just get a "11/29/2007 4:28:10 PM|Milkyway@home|Deferring communication 1 hr 0 min 0 sec, because project is down"

I suppose I have my self to blame for joining a Alpha project.

Not only did I loose almost all my credits after his little "Stats revision" (two third or three forth at least) )

Fair or not (I think not ... )

I have made as much CS in Cosmology@home in 2 days than I have here now,
one week worth of crunching ...

I think I leave the project until it has stabilized some and is at least believable Beta and not Alpha !

I don't know what people expect, joining a project in Alpha status ... perhaps being a programmer myself it's easier for me. Personally I don't expect to get any significant credit, I'm just glad to help out and help you guys troubleshoot. Speaking of which, I've been getting a "Server is down for maintainance" message for quite some time now - are you didn't just forget to exit administrative/maintainance mode? :P

I am getting the same thing. I think it's still being worked on. I don't mind, I can catch up on work from other projects.

You think you should keep the extra credits awarded by your customised boinc client, as you said yourself,Clicky you get getting 4 - 8 c/wu is at least 4x what the latest boinc client was correctly awarding?

I've got WU's to this computer. I had to do a detach and then reattach to get them though. I'll check the rest of my computers tomorrow.

The reason i reduced the amount of credit you got because it was so far beyond what anyone else was making on a similar computer. If i remember correctly your computers average credit was around 500-600, while the next highest was around 250-275. This looked like an anomaly so i reduced it (along with all the others around there) -- these seemed to be the computers that were getting 10k+ credit for work units and things like that. If you were honestly crunching and thats what BOINC was giving you because your computer was highly optimized i apologize.

Either way, if you're crunching through workunits super fast the credit you gain now that the server is back up and running should be quite high with the fixed credit.
