I just came back after years. redownloaded and went to update - it won't ... under messages it says:

6/12/2009 9:37:44 AM SETI@home Message from server: (Project has no jobs available)


Which I don't quite understand. Did i mess up or just bad timing?

The latter, but with several retries, I just happen to have fetched two MultiBeams.

Gotta be the timing.
I just brought my other puters back up today after a Home network problem and they all loaded up and 2 are still asking.
Let BOINC do its thing and things should get better.

This happened to me aswell. Last year I tried multiple times over a period of 2 days, but it would not load. Today I tried again, but alas! "No work available"! Well, will BOINK (or whatever its called) do its job.
Cheers from Vienna, Austria

Patience. There is currently a problem with the servers. No project promises to always have work available. The idea of Boinc is to allow scientist with minimum funding and staff to have a base of volunteers to analyze their data. There are over 50 of more or less active Boinc based projects. I personally never run out of work as I'm attached to 15 projects, 4 of them are basically dead, the others including Seti provide work on a fairly regular basis.

I got a few. Two 6.08s and a 6.03. With my slow poke of a computer and little old 8500GT card that's all I need for awhile.

I am starting to get this too. No tasks available is the message I am seeing in the message log.

It's good to know I am not the only one.

I have been getting the same thing for several days. Have detached and reattached to the project without success. Yes, I am getting all my other projects, but that doesn't help SETI.

What's up?? I see that I am not the only one and I see that the project has work available. Are we dealing with time frame problems - ie: takes too long to do a work unit so it won't send? doubtful, but does anyone have answers?

I was curious about this same subject.
I think I may not be leaving BOINC up and running enough...
seemed like when I just had it up and running for awhile, it got tons of jobs... now, nothing ...

So, back to having my PC run all day. LOL..
there goes my electric bill

SETI has not enough work to distribute.

That has nothing to to with your PCs, neither with turnaround times nor with running around the clock.

Regarding "I see that the project has work available": that's right, but 100000 tasks about an hour ago are gone fast if more than 50000 users per hour are asking for them. And a "Current result creation rate" of 1 task per second only generates 3600 new tasks per hour. So, you see that it's just luck if you get some.

Gruß,
Gundolf
