For several hours, I have not been able to open any GPUGRID page; also, no finished tasks can be uploaded, nor can any new tasks be downloaded.

Any idea what happened to GPUGRID?

Their website security certificate expired (my browser is saying "NET::ERR_CERT_DATE_INVALID").

That was earlier today: I could get through to the message boards using a less secure browser, and I saw that somebody had reported it already. Now, connections are being refused, so I guess they're in the middle of trying to fix things.

yes, earlier today I got messages to that effect, regardless of what browser I used.
Later then, no connections were possible at all.

Just too bad that they let the certificates expire :-( Should not happen

Just because somebody is a wizard at protein binding energies, doesn't necessarily mean they're red hot at computer security! That's a problem which affects all small-staff BOINC projects.

When I contacted them the other day with regard to a specific IT-technical matter, I was told that the only one who could look into that is out for the time being, and they don't know when he will be back.

So let's hope that now someone else can fix the current problem. Otherwise, the GPUGRID servers may be down for quite a while :-(

My error message has now become "www.gpugrid.net took too long to respond." - each step sounds like progress, an improvement.

More to the point, I got a new task allocated at

30/05/2016 22:13:25 | GPUGRID | Scheduler request completed: got 1 new tasks

(timezone UTC+1) and after a bit of kicking it's fully downloaded and ready to run - so the project is alive and doing science, even if it's a bit sickly just now.
