Can somebody help me with this one!!?
I don't have problems with other xml project files (SETI; Einstein)

Current file xml file :

You probably have your project preferences set to receive cpu tasks including N-Body Simulation, but your app_info.xml does not contain any CPU applications. Once you go on anonymous platform, only the applications in it will be used. If you want to run GPU only, change your project preferences to get rid of the messages.

The SETI and BOINC sites are back up now.

Found some info on the BOINC site for those who may be trying to reach it - it's located in the same building as SETI. The website was partially available today. You could download BOINC software, but no forums, etc. because the database was not running.

Richard Haselgrove posted the following info on a team's website:

This time, the BOINC servers and website will be able to stay up at least part of the time. Their outage (times in PDT) was posted as

Due to a planned power outage, the BOINC web site will be down tomorrow (Wed 30 May) from:
3:45 AM to 11:00 AM
5:00 PM to 8:00 AM the next day.
Two reasons for the difference:

1) SETI is a complicated beast with lots of interconnected servers. It's best if they're powered down carefully (and in the right order) while the staff are on-site, and powered back on again the same way.

2) "Two big temporary generators got moved into the SSL parking lot today. The lab has enough back-up generator power for Isaac [the BOINC server] and for the lab routers and switches, but not enough to keep seti@home up."

So the BOINC site should be partially up tomorrow morning, and hopefully will be all the way back later in the morning.

looks like its all down again. Were they expecting this again??

Yes, they had a couple of hours warning this time and made an orderly shutdown. PG&E (local utility company) is replacing some of the underground power cables that serve the Space Sciences Lab and several other buildings at the campus. Guess the fix for the shorted cable that caused the unplanned downtime two weeks ago was not considered permanent enough to suit them. The university's site is not providing status reports this time, but the project said they expect to be back up by Thursday 1700 UTC.

The account you're posting from is 71431 . Is
21320 your previous account? It has the same username and country (Spain), but I can't compare computers because yours are hidden on 71431 and we can't see the e-mail addresses. If it is your old account, you must have used a different e-mail address to open the new account

If that's the account and if you remember the e-mail address and password, you can log on to it to confirm. Then complete your tasks on hand, detach, and attach to the other account.

I finally got through to report mine after BOINC fetched the master file. Not sure what prompted that.
