I have been using Boinc (today I updated to version 7.0.28, but had been using an earlier [6.10.60] version with no problems) and Seti@Home for a while now and, of course, have experienced times when they apparently run out of work or other problems. Currently I am getting, and have for many days, the message (not Notice): “Downloading work from the server.” When I check the “Transfers” I see a long list of items, none of which do anything. They all say “Download: pending (project backoff: [time]” Is this a problem on my end or is this a Seti@Home problem?

Server side. Downloads are sluggish. Highlight all of the pendings and click "retry now" or wait until the back-off has expired. This is a common occurrence and nothing to be worried about. We all experience it regularly.
