A new server is in place, and should improve the performance of BOINC web site, wikis, and translation system.

Is this the cause why we can't run any Seti@Home Projects anymore at the moment?

Ah no sorry just saw why at the Seti@Home Homepage:
Our upload (results) storage area is full. The project is down until we resolve this

How long has this been down? And do you expect to be back up soon?

Would this have anything to do with the manager "unable to connect to the core client"? There is nothing (and I mean NOTHING!)in my manager to even indicate that I had projects one running. I'm sorry I can't tell you just when my computing stopped, I've been busy trying to get from Florida to NY for a funeral and haven't been paying attention. I'm running Mac OS 10.6.5, 2.4 GHz Intel Core i5, 4GB memory, MacBook Pro.
Hope you can tell me how to get things going again.

No, nothing.

As posted many times:
BOINC is in 2 parts:
1) The "core client". (Or worker part, or daemon.) This does the actual work of looking after the sciences apps, and is not visible to the user.

2) The "Manager". This is a gui, which displays to the user what the client is doing.

The 2 parts communicate via port 31416. (Pi :) ) Any thing that blocks/takes over this port will prevent the 2 parts communicating, leaving the Manager with blank entries.
Anti virus programs can get aggressive and block anything that they don't know about, so check this first.

If the client IS running, (and it can do this without having a manager looking over it's shoulder), then this, along with the names of the science apps, will appear in what ever Macs use as a substitute for Windows Task Manager.
Check in there. Perhaps you've had projects running all along, and just haven't been able to see them.

What, that we had a new BOINC server on September 22nd would stop your PC from doing anything in December? Of course not. Besides, the BOINC server runs the BOINC domain, nothing else.

On top of that, BOINC itself doesn't do any science.
The projects you're attached to send you science applications that do the work, as long as work is given out by those same projects. If the project isn't giving out any work, perhaps because it's down due to severe server problems --like the Seti project has been for the past 2 months, you're probably confusing them with BOINC-- then your computer won't be showing much activity either. It'll sit by idly.

Easily solved though if you add one or two extra projects.
