About all my pc's ran dry: "no work" since 2 days (sunday).
I'm seeing similar messages on different fora.
Something wrong?

You're not being victimised either!

All devices get work again. No full buffers yet, but the situation clearly is better now.

There is work alright... One of my Linux pc's received 135 WU's last night, all with an October 10 deadline. It is now processing the WU's in High Priority mode and I guess it needs to run like that for the next 24 hours.

The other thing is the Pending page: according to that page I have around 200 credits pending, but when I look at the Tasks page, there are more than 100 pending tasks so my pending credit must be at least 1000.

I have looked today why my quad is not doing any work and i see in my logs constant message from LC server no work available.
Server status reports more then enough units present but whatever i do i am almost receiving non
And setting to 10 days did not work either and messes other projects up.
So i think the admins should do something about this problem, but i see them not being very active on the user side perspective

Setting the cache to 10 days is of no use since the project expects work back within 4 days of sending it.
Check http://boinc.gorlaeus.net/sharedmemory.php to see if there is work for your OS - cpu combination (1st table).

Mag ik een kleine opmerking maken :

1: Ik zie nergens feetback van LC , of er iets is
2: Nog enkele uren te gaan en het staat droog , dat is zonde
3: Na zo heftige vorige maand , zijn er al resultaten geboekt.
4: vraag na vraag ?
5: Zonde om iedereen zo in het water te laten spartelen.

Groetjes

Well, your admin is overlooking and has tried several tricks in his power to help generate more work... The thing is; it is the *science* that dictates how much work there can be (which is also relevant) and no so much the 'volunteerers demand for work / credit'. The whole idea of BOINC is to run with several projects and contribute there when needed. At LC we do have a perhaps small but steady stream of work; making more work is not easily feasable (or scientifically needed right now).

So... There is work in general here at LC and if you run out for a couple of hours; switch to another project perhaps which does have more work available at that moment. Sorry about that...

What I can say is that we are preparing a bigger project on LC to be held somewere in january / february (has to do with schedules of students and teaching obligations etc.); we are currently developing a new model and a corresponding application will be built too... When that's done; more work and more science again ;-).
