Howdy! Interesting things going on here. Late yesterday I pulled up BOINC only to see a Collatz task fail after being almost complete. The queued task behind it would not start - said my GPU (Intel on a Lenovo T470) was missing. Took a bit of reading but found BOINC would recognize the GPU if I had my second monitor connected. Passed that but now I am getting this:

7/27/2019 8:47:02 AM | collatz | update requested by user
7/27/2019 8:47:04 AM | collatz | Sending scheduler request: Requested by user.
7/27/2019 8:47:04 AM | collatz | Not requesting tasks: don't need ()
7/27/2019 8:47:05 AM | collatz | Scheduler request completed
7/27/2019 8:47:05 AM | collatz | Your current settings do not allow tasks from this project. To fix this, you can change Project Preferences on the project's web site.

1809 was completed 7/13. Any ideas?

My two machines are wire connected to the same network gateway. This one is working, the other is not. My WCG continues to run flawlessly on both machines. No other issues accessing websites or work sites via VPN. I have also run tracert to boinc.thesonntgs.com. Address gets resolved and makes it through several hops from FL to IL via GA. It dies in Elmhurst, IL. Now it gets fun. DNS resolves to 2 different IP addresses on the 2 machines. I manually made them both the same and retried. Still the same - 2 different IPs. One works, one does not. Added the IP that works to the hosts file of the one that does not. Back in business finally. 73.44.243.151 works. 67.167.89.131 does not.

Interesting. This machine just downloaded new work and I was able to manually retry uploading results successfully. My other machine still can't connect to the website or upload/download.

I am today. All of my queued work units are pending transfer. Nothing new arriving. Was not able to even access the website until a short time ago and only on one of my computers. Have rebooted one computer and my gateway. Still no joy.

WCG is CPU only. I too am a point tart but I am an IBMer and a WCG badge tart. I gave up on crunching for $. Too many goliaths and it just wasn't fun any more. So my CPUs run WCG, my GPUs run Collatz and I have fun watching progression BoincStats and WCG.

If you run World Community Grid they just came back after being down due to EU GDPR issues. I received a few hundred K points when they rejoined the party.

I read somewhere down the thread that Jon is traveling this week for the Holiday. My tenure here is not as long as many of you.. Nonetheless, my experience from the last hack is Jon will do what is needed upon his return to get us made whole. Not good at it, but I am trying to exercise some patience. Jon deserves his time away just as much as any of us and shouldn't have to work 36 hours a day upon his return.

Do we need to drop/re-add the project like before?
