Yup, Seti is upgrading some of their servers and since they are at the same Campus as the main Boinc servers a lot of folks are having problems.
You could try Poem, really easy to run with shorter WU's...Scheduled Power Outage - update
We are now recovering from a planned power outage, during which all services were off line. The workunit storage machine is undergoing a RAID resync and no new workunits will be generated until this has finished. The outage was for power upgrades on campus, and a similar outage will happen again this upcoming Sunday (01/03/2010) at 12 noon (Pacific time).
I was about to say 'that's a nice Rac you've got there for not running it on all cores' but it just sounds wrong.Yeah, I actually put a fair bit of processing power into Rosetta. I prefer the boinc client over SMP as it allows me to run 3 cores on a quad, while leaving the 4'th open for GPU folding. I'm currently running 3 rosetta cores (well not currently since the only work it's got is one of those blasted "hang at around 3%" units) on my Q6600, and one on my 955be (got a dual core VMware SMP running on that one).
Looks like the problems with Seti will be repeated next weekend and might effect other projects like Rosetta again.The BOINC web site and trac system will be unavailable 3 Jan 20:00 UTC to 4 Jan 20:00 UTC.
