Seems like I can't upload WUs, their webpage and forums also have been inaccessible for 2 days now...

Site is completely off line even by direct IP.

Tracert can not get past a firewall at firewall-iap.obspm.fr.

Nothing new, the sever goes offline several times a year with no prior notice or any explanation after it returns. All you can do is wait until it's back on line, however long it takes.

I guess their forums are on the same server. Sometimes forums of projects are on another server, allowing at least to complain on their forums when their service is down

It's not a matter of where the forums are. For BOINC the forums are really small, they're part of the BOINC back-end (all web-pages) and make use of the BOINC database. Normally when the BOINC database is down, all web pages are down, including the forums. A lot of projects use just one physical server to run everything on, or one physical server with lots of virtual servers running on it. Which still makes it once the physical server goes down, everything is down.

Again now Primary home page timing out....

Since the Forums are not maintained a lot of users have the opinion that the project is on auto-pilot until it burps and then nothing until someone does a weekly check in, If I was the University with a name attached I would remove my name,

Cosmology has sent quite a few bad WUs to me lately.
They all had computation errors.
Not sure if it's a misconfiguration, perhaps relying on a different version of Docker/Virtualbox, but my results are all errors.
Even on two completely different systems.
