Cosmology@home is down for at least 2 weeks now. Can't access website to find what is wrong.
Any1 knows anything?

Cosmology has been in its death throes for as long as the past 2 years. Some time late last year, it became impossible for anyone to log in (SSL error). As of just now, the web server is not accepting connections.
Attempts to contact the site owner, Dr Marius Millea, have been unsuccessful. It is almost as if Dr Millea doesn't care about the people who are crunching his data for him, so long as we continue to crunch it.
I found out that the site is running off a system at the Poincare Institute, Sorbonne University, in Paris. I was going to contact them to inform them of the situation, but instead I decided that I had had enough, and simply removed Cosmology@home from my boinc setup.
As far as I am concerned, C@H is dead -- and it has also been removed from the list of available boinc projects for the reasons stated above.
So my recommendation to you (and to anyone else) is that you just give up on the project, and go do some work for people who will actually appreciate what we are doing. There are plenty of worthwhile projects available, so find something that interests you and go crunching :)

@hadron Thanks for the update. I see your point. I guess it is time for me too to pull the plug in C@H.
I do have other projects i am contributing and i will just continue with these.
I just saw C@H racking many projects ready to upload for some time now and got me wandering what is going on.
Thanks again for clarifying to me the situation at hand.

There are of course other possible explanations that projects heavily dependent on one person can suffer from such as illness. or worse. Just as many people do not prepare their personal lives for their death/illness, many especially if they do not expect problems do not prepare their professional lives for such events.

Quite possible; however, this situation has been ongoing for the past 2 years, without one bit of real news from anyone.
Some time ago, someone posted about contacting Saul Perlmutter at the BCCP. Did anyone actually do that? If so, nothing was reported here. I never contacted the Poincare institute for only one reason: in the end, all they really could do would be to pull the plug on the server.

Hmmmm....

If they pulled the plug on the server it would be an act of mercy. Being an old Techie I had never considered an Ungraceful Shutdown in a positive way before, but there it is.

I'm staying connected. Throughout November/December I was doing work, and the server disk kept getting full, then suddenly getting cleared every couple of weeks - presumably someone was there doing things. Then in January the server is offline completely. As for the SSL rubbish, easy to get around if you follow the workarounds in their forum. Boinc continues to connect, you can use Boinc's certificate to put a bypass in your browser. It's no effort on my part to let the computer retry every day automatically.

https://cosmicmar.com/ gives mariusmillea@gmail.com as a contact. I have asked him if Cosmology still has a future.

From Glenn Carver at CPDN:

There are some changes going on at Oxford Uni IT infrastructure that affect the CPDN virtual machines that run the site. I don't have a date when it will be back. CPDN are well aware it's not working and want to get it back ASAP, but the timing is not under their control. Some patience required.
