I detached all projects except Cosmology and am pleased to tell you that I am now getting plenty of Cosmo WUs.
Many thanks to all who helped to sort out my problems.

Regards, Rick.

Rick,
That's great that the wus are downloading again!
What you have described is indicative of a debt problem. From what i understand, if you reattach the projects you've detached their respective debts should be reset; however, i am unsure what role that will play in the long term and short term debt for C@H. (especially since it's the only attached project.)

If you happen to run into the same problem, you may need to reset your debt.

Glad you're back up and crunching C@H.
Happy Crunching all...

Could this be related to debt?

If you suspend all of your other projects, connect to cosmology, and then find that it's downloading more than one wu, the problem is probably related to debt. If that's the case a debt reset should fix the problem. (Sorry if you already checked your debt - i didn't see that mentioned.)

You can view and reset your debt with this program

Information on short term debt and long term debt

Hopefully that was somewhat helpful.
Happy crunching all,

Sorry again, guys and gals. It won't happen again.


Scott, from what i have read in previous threads, you have done a stellar job keeping people informed and the project running.
If i may be presumptuous and speak for the rest of the testers, we appreciate your dedication and understand a short - less than a couple day long - lapse in uploading. (It's a part of life and a part of testing. :) )

All of my machines are uploading as normal; thank you Scott.
Happy Canada Day all (and early 4th)!

So, i thought i should say hello and introduce myself as well. "Hi all!"

While my major areas of study/work/volunteering are not in the sciences, I consider science to be of the utmost importance. I believe it is this shared passion for, and dedication to, forwarding science that makes BOINC the type of community we can truly appreciate being part of. I'm happy to be participating with everyone here and it's great to see those familiar faces from LHC, Malaria Control Beta, RALPH, etc.

Happy crunching everyone!
The incurable optimist,
