Get a Certificate of computation showing how much you've computed across all BOINC projects. It's suitable for framing!

It works for me.
I think - I can't count that high. :)

David has forgotten that he fixed this problem in another place last year:

web: in "all projects" certificate, show message if no projects

Nah, fairly sure this one is down to not allowing for more projects than can fit on a page.

CPID 16a4a513fbbb77b756173c6d1cf16b44 does not have zero projects.

For me, the new page shows 14 projects. But BOINCstats shows 23 ...

It looks like the numbers are pulled from BOINC Combined Statistics, which has a different way of handling retired projects.

More seriously, I'm wondering whether the mathematics leading to my statement of "3.77 sextillion floating-point operations" has been audited: BOINC doesn't count or record flops directly.

That's funny - I can see 47 projects and 4.35 sextillion floating-point operations OK.

Maybe David is still fixing it as we speak.

Nah, the CPID isn't error-checked. If you make a slight typo in that field, you get the errors on line 112 and 145.

Works for me too. Though I wonder what to do with it as I cannot save it locally.

And if I use dwhelper as a companion app to try and save the image, I get an image but it isn't the certificate.

Does not work!
Same error as others pointed out.
And I do have used the right Cross-project ID. Double checked, triple checked.
Edit: I have only 3 projects, so it's not a question of space on the page.

I tried it with your CPID f547f4596cfe6b226b5fab86f191c56b and get this result:

Yup, works for me now. DA must have fixed something just recently.

Well, nothing new has been added to either the BOINC or the boinc-site repositories since this morning (UTC).

Yes. Copy and pasting white space into the CPID field will give you the certificate displayed in this thread.
Even just clicking submit with nothing in the CPID field will display that same certificate.
