Cosmology@Home had rendered BOINC almost useless. It seems to be an issue with the project communicating with the server which causes BOINC to hang and I need to reboot my computer each time to get BOINC working again. The only solution was to remove the project from BOINC and BOINC and my other projects are now back to working fine. I see in previous posts that this is a known issue. Also, even running just one data set at a time made it sound like the fans on my laptop were about to lift the computer off the table. ;-)

Hopefully the issues will be eventually resolved so I can start running it again.
