Have been running for a week or so now, having logged 1825 credits, so everything used to work. This evening I am not able to connect-- had a glitch on the intel imac and BOINC seems to have taken a hit. Could anyone help figure out what is wrong and how to correct it? Here is the log when trying to connect this evening

BOINC just sits flashing the progress dot-bar, saying "waiting to contact project servers"

Thanks for any and all attempts to help solve my problem.

BOINC finally started to do something after sitting for a long while. The log appears to indicate some problem though, just after the timeframe where BOINC had stalled (at 23:09:23 time). It then took off at 23:25:47 with messages about preferences issues-- any ideas what is wrong? Here's the full log
