Ok that sounds feasible. But what happens is whatever Boinc downloads it finishes all of them in approx. 3>4 hours what so I would like it to is upload immediately and download more work so that Boinc never sits idle... George.

Hi guys I have Boinc set to download up to 10 days of work but it never does it will from having no work download and run 14 packages and will have 4 or 5 spare after some 3 to 4 hours I have to come back to the computer and manually update to be able to send results and get new work, but it never brings down work for 10 days. Any ideas.. George.

Hi guys i didnt intend switching on my computor but i did and this page showed up first and i could not believe the support from you all. Reaading all your messages just made me flood with tears but not sad ones and i am not laughing my head off but they gave me a bit of stability. So i will keep in touch, Happy crunching guys and thankyou.. George.

Hi guys just had to find an ear to listen to me, looks like i wont be crunching for a while due to my wife passing away on wednesday. This was totally unexpected she was in fine health but a blood clot got into the heart and did the damage.
So if any lesson can be learned from this please everyone keep getting regular health checks doctors are there to be pestered. So keep safe all of you. George..

Ok guys i did the retry thing and they try to download then status column states.. Download pending (projectbackoff: 02:01:00). I have checked my connection with broadbandchecker all is well, have logged into guild wars all is well. So i think i can rule out my connection. Really guys thanks.

Did BOINC request work when you did this? And if so, did the tasks download successfully?

Hi some tasks were downloaded at that time and run and uploaded, at this exact point in time the boinc manager tasks tab has 79 entries awaiting download and they are not dowloading, if i try clicking on update responce is (communication deferred ) and this has been normal for me every weekend. Come monday all will return to normal, next friday here we go again. Thanks for your help

"Average turnaround time" shows you probably have "Maintain enough work" set for 2-3 days. The "run always" option you are referring to, is not a guarantee you will always have WU to crunch. It just means Boinc will always be ready to go to work, whether you've got WU to crunch, or not.
If you follow the previous instructions and change the number of days to something like 5 or 7, it should be enough to get you through, not only Fridays but normal weekly outages too. So no need to stress over the "retry now" button:)

Hi i have just set the maintain enough work to 10 days. I do know what the "run always" means. I should have maybe asked my question in a different way so here it is. Is it normal for the download servers to be not operating on a friday.. Thanks guys.

If this means you are running out of WU to crunch, you might consider changing:

(On your ACCOUNT page)

Preferences
When and how BOINC uses your computer: Computing preferences

then:
Maintain enough work for an additional: -- days


Boinc is set to run always, i am just not getting any WU downloaded due to communication deferred. But remember this only happens from friday morning, and i mean every friday. It is so outrageous it is laughable..

Thanks for your reply but i can try manually using the update button all day and always get (communication deferred). What amaze's me is i can guarantee waking up on friday morning and no work units just dont understand it..

Can anyone tell me why when friday comes i cannot download any work units,and i mean every friday it is most frustrating to leave my comp on 24/7 and no seti work gets done on friday. Sometimes it will restart downloads on saturday or sunday. Thanks guys.
