I have BOINC/seti running on 3 different computers. They were all working just fine but have now stopped. My one windows based PC and one CentOS box stopped downloading tasks on June 19/20. The third computer, also Windows 10, stopped March 16/20. I've updated the BOINC on this Windows PC to v 7.16.7 and still not working. BOINC manager, on the project tab says "Won't get new tasks". I tried resetting the project through BOINC manager and still no joy.

Here's the last few lines of my log files:

It's worth noting that his has run flawlessly ever since I installed it on this computer and when it quit working on June 19th I was not even home (away on vacation) so it's not like I did something stupid to it to cause it to stop working.

So what's wrong and how do I get it working again?

The project stopped sending out new work several months ago, then more recently all resends were stopped:
https://setiathome.berkeley.edu/

I would suggest that if you want to continue using your computer for distributed computing then you look at other projects - just now a lot of folk who were on SETI have moved over to WCG & Rosetta to support the work to develop cures for Corvid-19.

That's good to know, I'll stop worrying about it then.

I may just take you up on joining WCG & Rosetta

Thanks
