Cosmology has an unusual error:
An error occurred during a connection to www.cosmologyathome.org. SSL received a record that exceeded the maximum permissible length.
Error code: SSL_ERROR_RX_RECORD_TOO_LONG

I am not sure that there is anyone there to fix it.

I thought you were trying to show they had achieved scientific results.
I have reached my conclusions, as stated before.

Otherwise, I am not interested in doing your research, any more than continuing a futile attempt to look for aliens. That was the whole point.

But at a time when you should be glad that the resources devoted to SETI are now freed up for other uses, you are beating a dead horse. Do it yourself.

Did you look in the scientific literature?

I think you are trying to imply that there is something there. Go ahead and cite it. We will all be interested, I am sure.

Great news. They have wasted enough electrical energy on an impossible goal, as I have posted in their forum a few times.
But they have good signal processing capability, if some astronomers can figure out how to make use of it.

SETI has done more than looking for aliens.
A lot of their data helped other astronomy research.

I doubt it. I have looked for that on their forum for years, and even asked about it, with no response.

But, they did have a great value. They developed BOINC, and introduced a whole army of people to distributed computing. That capability can now be used for a wide variety of purposes, including the current virus. I think Dave Anderson pulled the plug at just the right time. It was not a religion with him, just a science and technology, which is its proper place.

Thanks. I ran "sudo update-ca-certificates", and it shows that the "ca-certificates.crt" file (in /etc/ssl/certs) now has today's date.
But whether anything is changed in the file is not clear.
I will know at midnight UTC, or so it appears.

At least it is an interesting problem. Not the usual run of the mill stuff.
It must be some protocol missing in Nano that can't send the right GUI stuff.
But after that, there is not much anyone (especially me) can do. Good luck.

EDIT: Your computer does not show up in your Universe account? That is different. Even worse. I thought you meant it did not show up locally in Boinc Tasks.

I know nothing about the command lines, but I control10 Ubuntu 18.04.4 machines over the LAN with a Windows 7 64-bit machine running Boinc Tasks.
I have often attached to Universe.

You just install Boinc Tasks on your Windows machine:
https://efmer.com/download-boinctasks/

Then, there are simple instructions for what to do on the Linux machine:
https://efmer.com/boinctasks-connect-to-linux-machine/

Then, in the Projects tab of Boinc Tasks, you just select "Add a project", and you are off.

I think their servers are down at the moment. When they come back up, you will be able to detach from GPUGrid and start over.
You can just add the "s" to the address in the BOINC Manager window as the easiest way.

It’s down again at the moment.

I just re-attached and got stuck in limbo. It won't do anything (but the website is OK).

Einstein?
I can download work, but not get to the web page, even using OpenDNS.
But "Is It Down Right Now" says that it is up.

Rosetta Covid 700 Mb

The Rosetta work units can take a lot more when they are under development; up to around 3 GB.
I currently have one running under Win7 64-bit at 2.5 GB.
And about half of the ones running on my Ubuntu machines (around 70 cores) are between 1 and 2 GB.

In a few days, they will settle down to less than 500 MB. But memory problems tend to surprise new users (and even some old ones) on Rosetta.

Folding@Home Covid - maybe someone else can advise

Running the Folding CPU client on my Ryzen 3950X (all 32 cores, Ubuntu 18.04.4), the FahCore_a7 is using 1.6% of 16 GB memory, or 256 MB.

Running the GPU client on an RTX 2060 (Ubuntu 18.04.4), the FahCore_22 is using 1.1% of 32 GB memory, or 352 MB.

In all my years on Folding, no one has ever complained about high memory usage.

The FAQ, useful though it may be, is a bit obscure. You could just link to the sticky and be done with it, if you want to.

Or you could just ignore them without guilt. If they can't find it, they probably won't understand it anyway.
Your time is valuable too.

BOINC should just put up a sticky (in large, black letters):
Why All Projects Do Not Use GPUs

It would save a lot of repetition.

Correct, and Juan Hindo from WCG has said that they hope to get the GPU version of AutoDock (OpenCL) sometime in the future but there is no ETA.

If you remember, the HCC (Help Conquer Cancer) project, a predecessor to MCM, had a GPU app.

If you have a recent Nvidia card, you can run GPUGrid.
They will be getting some Covid-19 work units at some point.

But check the requirements.

Another advantage is that it would earn BOINC credits.
I never look at credits myself (more or less), but it seems to be a drawback for some people who would otherwise migrate a GPU over to Folding.

And I am sure Jacob Klein would be delighted to help (he did Zero Resource Share anyway).

Their new locations are in the East (well, St. Louis east). They are innocent of such things.
Or to be more precise, they have their own rivalries.

It could be a new beginning.
