That's the new normal it seems, not answering any questions. DA stopped answering mine two months ago. Doesn't matter what I send his way, I get only silence in return.


I just posted a question in the SETI@home Facebook group https://www.facebook.com/groups/317689381579505/

Eric usually responds to questions there.

The latest timeouts are not due until the end of July, I think 26 July is the latest date that I have seen.

Mr 1337 may be unhappy to lose some of his RAC for sending in results a few hours before deadline.

I think he had a few hundred results due to expire today or yesterday. They're probably already Validated weeks ago, but he was still returning Tasks a few hours before deadline a few hours before the outage.

It's Windows 10. Boinc version 7.16.5 (x64). Seti@home. As far as memory; I don't expect that to be an issue, although I can't recall at this moment what i have for RAM. (It may have been about 16G). And it's a 1T HD with a lot of space still available.. It may be notable to mention that this computer has been running it for many years and I've made no changes to it any time recently.There is only one project on the list, and it has said "Communication Deferred" for quite some time. I'm assuming since this started. I hope I included everything. Thank you again.


https://setiathome.berkeley.edu/ SETI is in hibernation.

There are lots of other BOINC projects that would be happy to have your contributions of CPU/GPU resources.

https://boinc.berkeley.edu/projects.php

There are many different projects, you can choose to run more than one at the same time if you like.

2 days after the 1st stage landing on the barge, it returned to Port Canaveral.
So far, this is the only Falcon 9 flight with the "worm" version of the NASA logo, clearly visible on the side.

SSP has not updated for about 3 hours, so this looks like a longer than recent normal outages.

Sorry, if that one is a problem, can it be removed as a download ? Or replaced with the latest correct version ?
To explain how GitHub works:

Normally, 'master' has the latest and greatest version. Access to master is controlled, peer-reviewed, and automatically tested - so usually, it's good.

But in this case, because of the urgency of the situation, the priority was to get out a quick'n'dirty fix. So, the best copy (currently) is actually in

https://github.com/BOINC/boinc/tree/client_release/7/7.16/curl (note the date and comment)

But it's slightly difficult to download a single file, so it's easier to make your own file from

https://raw.githubusercontent.com/BOINC/boinc/client_release/7/7.16/curl/ca-bundle.crt


Thanks again Richard !

You are correct that I am a complete newbie at GitHub. I think my mistake was in assuming that something called Master would be the authoritative version !

NO

Try here [url]https://github.com/BOINC/boinc/blob/master/curl/ca-bundle.crt[/url]
That's the two-year-old one that caused all the trouble in the first place.

Well, I't try to extract new file from latest package then report.

There is more information in https://boinc.bakerlab.org/rosetta/forum_thread.php?id=14006

I only had this problem on LHC, both Windows and Android

The expired certificate problem has affected at least 3 projects, Rosetta, LHC and Number Fields, a few people have reported problems on Einstein as well.

There is an updated version of ca-bundle.crt available, but I'm not sure where to download the latest version.

Are you still having problems with this on any projects ?

Are there still any projects that are having problems ?


Yes, still can't upload/download from/to Rosetta

https://clip2net.com/s/47RTSv7


Is this on Android, or other OS ?
If Android, which version of the BOINC app ?


Vista, BOINC 7.4.42


I found your Rosetta hosts https://boinc.bakerlab.org/rosetta/hosts_user.php?userid=2135309

Have you tried editing the ca-bundle.crt file ? https://boinc.bakerlab.org/rosetta/forum_thread.php?id=14006&postid=96882#96882

Here are the answers to your questions. - JRLatham

Which projects are you trying to run?
Ans. My tasks drop down box shows the following

Distributed.net Client
Gamma-ray pulsar search #5
Gravitational Wave search 02 Multi-Directional GPU
Milkyway @ home separation

Are there any error messages?
Ans. No, there are no error messages.

What is your hardware?
Ans. I am running an Apple iMac with macOS 10.15.5 Catalina installed.

You might have a few Tasks that are close to deadline.
As some others have said already, your Tasks might get preempted by another one that has a shorter deadline.
It is usually best to have a smaller cache of tasks, particularly if you are running multiple projects.
Less than 1 day of cache is probably best.
