Message 1104871 - Posted: 10 May 2011, 6:55:58 UTC

Tonight, I received an email asking me to "rejoin SETI@home". After the email pointed out that it has been 547 days since my last returned work unit, I decided to start up again.

Alas, after installing Boinc, I'm informed that:
Mon May 9 23:47:36 2011 SETI@home Message from server: Project has no tasks available

So, is anybody getting tasks? I can't imagine that they are sending an email campaign if there is no work to be done... My machine is patiently awaiting for now.

The following, I copied from Message 1100999:
27/04/2011 11:55:38 SETI@home Requesting new tasks for GPU
27/04/2011 11:55:42 SETI@home Scheduler request completed: got 0 new tasks
27/04/2011 11:55:42 SETI@home Message from server: No tasks sent
27/04/2011 11:55:42 SETI@home Message from server: No tasks are available for SETI@home Enhanced
27/04/2011 11:55:42 SETI@home Message from server: _("Your app_info.xml file doesn't have a usable version of") Astropulse v505.

And I disabled Astropulse tasks, and in log you can see that 272.100 results of Seti is ready to send.

This just means the scheduler didn't have any tasks available at that instant, it only holds about 100 tasks at a time, within moments it would have been full again, wait the 5 minutes and try again,
(scheduler contants are only allowed once every 5 minutes)

If you canstantly see the Cricket Graph Maxed Out, work will eithier be hard to get, or hard to download, or both:
