For several days, I have been unable to obtain new tasks. In my log it states 0-tasks available.

While I'm not sure which not metric from the server status page indicates workunits available, it appears that over 36,000 results were returned by other users in the last hour.

Are there no tasks available right now? Which metric on the server status page would indicate that? If there are tasks, any ideas why my node is not receiving them?

There have been a number of server problems which have prevented the output of tasks to us users. In the last few hours the servers have started to produce and distribute tasks, but there is a huge backlog of folks looking for work. So be patient as it will take a day or two for the servers to settle down to a more normal flow rate.

...you currently have two tasks in progress.
Once one of those has been returned you will get a few more, and gradually, as the servers see what your computer is capable of you will get more. Depending on how you are running SETI (only when taking a break from your PC vs. 24/7...) this could take several days.
