Anyone know what is up with SiDock@home?
I know they are the marathon project on the upcoming Pentathlon and recently updated their servers.
Not Found

The requested URL was not found on this server.

SiDock website is back up until they break it again.
*** Appears Everything has been set back to December 2020 or January 2021 including all credit stats, message forum etc. No tasks either.

Not a good sign if they intend to be ready for the BOINC Pentathlon as they claimed to be the marathon project before the "upgrade" to the project servers.

Anyone know what's up with beef@home?

BOINC has not been able to connect to project for about 36 hours.
If you try to load project web site it takes over a minute to connect, then suddenly you the the following message:
beefathome is temporarily shut down for maintenance. Please try again later.

I get the following message in BOINC's error log along with a 24 hour back-off:
4/23/2021 01:20:45 | beef@home | [error] No scheduler URLs found in master file

Managed to finally obtain Star #14 after almost 9.75 years and 1.124 million Wu Prop hours.



Lots of dead projects throughout my list.
Currently working on getting all active projects up to 5K hours little bit at a time while pushing any new ones to 5K hours ASAP.

I tried to attach my fleet of computers to VDW and got message in BOINC error log that the feeder is not running.

I tried to post to project forums and got same error as STEVE did a few posts back. Also tried the friend search with same result.

Project is messed up. Not sure if Daniel really knows what he ils doing.

Looks like VDVN got a little update. Most of the pages are working, I also could attach and got work. Huge progress! :-)

Edit:
Server status page still looks like a mess, and the short tasks can't get uploaded... :-\

... and it appears to be broken again >
Can't attach computer(s) most likely because the main database is off-line or missing; forums borked, etc.
Will have to try again later today or whenever the project is fully operational to attach to project.

I see the 123numbers /VDW Numbers website has been restored but there's still a few problems with it:
1) NO HTTPS
2) CAN'T LOGIN
3) LOTS OF 404 ERRORS WHEN CLICK LINKS - INCLUDING LOGIN.

The VDW Numbers web site and forum were working about 1 hour after the automated post indicating there was work, but could not get any of my PC's to attach or post to forums.

Since that time its obvious someone has messed around with large portions of the web site's html code and broke it. All we can do is wait for the projects admin to realize it's broke and fix it.

Now that SiDock has gone public with stats export ands new url, I see they RENAMED the project from "sidock" to "SiDock@home" within the last 24 to 36 hours.

Thus we have DUPE APPS from the new project server due to the project name being changed while it was live and exporting stats.

The apps are EXACTLY the same - example (hours from my Windows PC's):
sidock CurieMarieDock on BOINC 183.65 (Total Running time hours) / 104.30 (Last Day hours)
   --- and ---   
SiDock@home CurieMarieDock on BOINC (Total Running time hours) 48.57 / (Last Day hours) 48.57

Wonder if Sebastian will be able to eventually merge them together?

Got Monkeys to purp stars last winter. Haven't seen anything from them in many months. The dev was having health and financial issues. I hope he is well.


ME TOO!!!

I gave up on the "monkey project" back in early September and Willy @ BOINCSTATS has retired it from the active project list. Consider it Dead project, the website is been missing for a while.

Can't login or register for the Charity Engine WEB SITE despite the fact that I successfully signed up via the BOINC program and currently have work on my computers.

Keep getting the SAME ERROR MESSAGE when I click on "My Account" button in BOINC:
Sorry, (my email address) is not recognized as a user name or an e-mail address.

I have tried clearing the stored browser cookies and even the "forgot password" option with same error message.

Is there any other way to register or sign in to the web site so I can manage my computers / account?

My 13 stars are slowly changing colors


Getting a very small boost every day by using a limited/free virtual machine on Google Colabs.

Information on how to configure BOINC on a virtual Google Colabs session can be found over at the Prime Grid Forums: Google Colab and its free GPUs

Looks like the project finally started to count them in the last few minutes.
It now shows in my hours list.

Missing hours for app "Native Python v2.7 Application (Cross Platform) v1.14 (sse2NoXP)".

Ran and successfully completed 110 tasks on computers over the last aprox 12 hours and it's not showing up in my hours....

I see the automatic announcement from WuProp showing "The application ACT-R cognitive modeling environment using Clozure Common Lisp (Cross Platform) from project MindModeling is active" was automatically posted on 25 Apr 2020, 1:05:47 UTC.

Wondering if WuProp has misidentified what was running on someone's PC?

Blurf,

Some of the older BOINC version won't attach to most of the projects any longer due to a built-in expired security certificate.

What version of BOINC are you using to attempt to connect?
Is this Win 10 PC a "Low powered" Intel chip?
