You'll need to wait a while. THe servers were down for routine maintenance for the last 3 days. The upload servers should be up and running. They'll turn the download servers on when the uploads start dwindling down

If you don't start getting work sometime today or tonight, then I'd start to worry

Well, let us know. The servers might still be down.

lol, I don't get new work... well, I did, but it's stuck in a project wide back-off on the downloads. Now 10 hours and counting. ;-)

No, the servers are up&running, but the available bandwidth is maxed out. Lots of computers uploading, downloading & reporting at the same time. In time BOINC will download your tasks.

I'm not getting any DLs either, it's giving the same errors as the rest, and it's been like this for a couple of weeks now. I used to run SETI years ago, and even with the old software, I never had connectivity issues...

Thank you, Kenzie! I hope they get it going soon... Gives me a reason to leave the machine going at night besides music... Might as well be productive!

In a sense they are, although not quite the weekly maintenance posted on the home page. We still don't know what that maintenance schedule will be like when they open the flood gates again. For now they are slowly ramping up the new servers, reassigning work on some server and reorganizing the server rack. The database is being cleaned up and installed on the new servers. Read the post in the Tech news forum for the last week to get an overview of what has/is happening. They are aiming to restart the project with new work production early next week.
