I was wondering if anyone knows anything about the following projects: CAS@Home, DENIS@Home, FiND@Home, MindModeling@Home, RNA World, SAT@Home, SZTAKI Desktop Grid. I've had these projects in my Boinc manager for a while now and they seem to not have any work. Are these projects dead? Thank You

As far as I am aware:

    CAS: Don't know, cant access website.

    DENIS: Have had server issues which they have wanted to rectify properly before they restart. Everything should be fixed soon.

    FIND: Have been taken over by GridRepublic which caused some contention. No recent news.

    MindModelling: Project is still active but there hasn't been any work recently, apparently there will be some more "soon"

    RNA World: Project is still active, they are currently working on a batch of "Monster" work units, which are taking the best part of a year to run. They are not sending any new work units out whilst these are run by their dedicated crunchers

    SAT: Appears to be dead

    Sztaki: Project is active but does not queue work, if you are a very lucky user you will get work units, once you hae completed some work units you are much more likely to get more. Most people only get a couple and then never get anymore.

One way to check project status is to visit Free-DC.org or BoincStats. Click on a project and you can see how many points it generated daily in the last 28 to 40 days (along with much more info if you click around). For example CAS@Home generated zero points in the last 40 days according to BoincStats.

>>> are run by their dedicated crunchers

My machines run 24/7, have done for years, I have a fair bit of credit at RNA, but not had anything for a very long time. I wonder how one becomes a dedicated cruncher.

CAS - Has work very infrequently, months and months go by before anything appears
DENIS - Admin posted recently he doesn't have a lot of time but does want to carry on
FiND - As already posted
MindModeling - As already posted
RNA - Some work in the wild but takes ages to complete
SAT - Due to make a return in the not to distant future I believe
Sztaki - work is sent out most days, you need to keep trying, set resource share high and run a backup project on 0 resource share, once you're in, you're in !

All of these Projects show some minor activity with the exceptions SAT@home which has had no activity since September of 2016. That said all of the other projects appear to have very limited numbers of WU's being done.

In the case of DENIS@home project is inactive pending an Application rewrite and database repair. The ADMIN is alone and over committed by his admission in in the most recent news article said that while the project is important to him it will be quite a while before it comes back up.

As for why you are not getting WU's on some of the others many reasons can apply subject to your types of system(s) and or configuration VS the applications being run on the projects.

SZATAKI Desktop Grid is known to be hard to get WU's from and they are hard to complete as well.

I seem to recall malariacontrol posting a shutdown notice. Certainly, I was a long time cruncher there, but have removed it from my list of projects, and would not normally do that unless there was a good solid reason.
