not to be picky but its BOINC not bionic or bonic BOINC.

You are the luckiest guy in the world. You've probably picked projects that haven't had work in a while or are just idle.

Orbits is idle. No work because no funding.

LHC has limited work.

You might check the websites of projects you want to join. check the server status page to see if any work is available

I haven't seen any work from the LHC project in a couple of years. CERN has a new project.

there is constellation@home, milkyway@home, einstein@home, and cosmology@home.

Be aware Cosmology requires a great deal of RAM and the WU's can run 16+ hours on a fast machine.

Milkyway is more of a GPU project than CPU though you can run the WU's on a cpu you'll get more bang for your buck on a good GPU. Your current Gpu won't run Milkyway
