Been doing a couple BOINC tasks since 1999. Bought a new computer a couple of months ago and noticed that the other task is running but has not been able to do SETI. The log has a repeating message of requesting new tasks and receiving no (0) tasks. This appears to have been going on for a long time. When I call up the screen with the graphs of the projects, the line for SETI is flat lined across the page. Any reason for this?

Thanks

Other topics have explained this. The front page has explained this best.

The project has had 2 servers melt down. They have ordered replacements and won't put out new work until they are in place in about 2 or 3 weeks.

Officially from the front page:

The project is down while we remodel our database servers.
The machine that was running the main BOINC database has become too unreliable to use. The backup server does not have the capacity to run the project on its own.

The very good news is that we just ordered two new servers! One will be the new BOINC database server and the other will be the new back end science database server. Our capacity to both distribute and analyze our data will increase significantly with these new machines.

While we prepare for these new servers and get them going once they arrive, the project will be down. Although no new work will be distributed, all outstanding work will be uploaded and credited. This web site and the forums will remain up for most of the remodeling period.

Funding for the new servers has come entirely from very generous donations from the SETI@Home community.
