I just got a bunch of work, I shut down boinc went into task manager and renamed boinc boinc1. Then I ran setup for boinc again and now I have a group of work for non-opti application. Once I run this work out I will delete the new boinc and rename boinc1 to boinc and can resume my CPU units without problem. Second time I have done this.

I just managed to get some WUs by sitting back and doing nothing for the last few hours.

There are obviously big changes underway on the server side, and they may take some time to sort out, de-bug, and get back in the swing. I'm not sure anything we do on our side can have as much effect as whatever is going on in Berkely.

I too. In m ost of the hosts this is working.
In this one (http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/show_host_detail.php?hostid=1852935) I have received 14 tasks in the last 24 hours (and more) but the log is telling me that I have received my quota (104).
Or that there is no job from the project.
In this window: http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/host_app_versions.php?hostid=1852935 I see "Number of tasks today" but if it means "Number of tasks sent today" it is wrong.
I hope that tomorrow I receive some task.
As told here: http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/forum_thread.php?id=60388
on this Host I have a lot of lost results (results sent and reported but Berkeley doesn't knows it) so I think that the sistem is waiting for them, before sending me new job.
Isn't it?
I don't want to trick but SETI shouldn't loose work.

I've picked up about 300 WU's today including a bunch of AP's. Did nothing but let it run by itself.

Here the drain doesn't need a Plunger, Of course the Faucet may need replacement as no matter how high I turn the handle, I only get 1 to 10 WU's every once in a while and yet I have a quota of 226, While I have currently 32 WU's on the hard drive and no more, Can You say Ghost WU's?
