Hello,
I am about to attempt to set up an HTTP proxy, Squid, for the LHC@home project's VM tasks.
LHC is already set to receive no new tasks and I'm letting all current tasks complete.
I've searched the forums but I'm still a little uncertain about what happens to a project when I subject it to a "Reset project" command. I understand that it cleans out my local files for the project, which are all subsequently reacquired afresh. But what about my hard earned statistics? Are they stored safely by the project servers? And after a "Reset project" command; will my BOINC client's "Statistics" tab also reacquire and display the history of my cherished recent endeavours?
Thank you very much.

Your stats remain on the project servers
