Message 84257 - Posted: 7 Jan 2018, 14:42:43 UTC

Thanks to retirement, a total change of location and assorted other issues all within a very short timeframe a while ago now, I haven't had Boinc loaded and running for rather a long time now, and it looks like there's been a lot of changes there too :)

The last time I'd really done anything specific, as I recall, I had to sign in on my client, where I was part of at least one or two teams, and had several projects etc etc. They had all been working uneventfully, but just now, after all the yadda yadda above, it appears it's very different now. There doesn't seem to be a "global" signin on the client anymore? Unless I somehow missed it? Or does that now only occur upon project selection? I ass-u-me my old team(s) and projects are not available anymore? I'm using the same email address, tho. Or do I just have to sign up for them again and it will know me? I can't really remember all of them now, tho :(

Can someone point me to somewhere that I can get myself up to date again?

TIA

I did go poking around a couple of the projects I remembered, and luckily they DO still have me as a member :) so I guess that answers my question. Given I've been a member of at least one of them since 1999, I'm glad that did work for me.

The BOINC client or manager never had those by default, but perhaps that you used an account manager, such as GridRepublic or BAM!. Account Managers allow you to choose multiple projects on one page and move those to BOINC Manager in one contact. (Tools->Use account manager).
