I have been caught twice now, once with a stuck download that I ended up aborting.
And now I have two N144 running, but they will complete tomorrow with no immediate prospects of upload.

But not all is lost. The ARP machine is running fine.

Surprise!

Cosmology is back, and they even have camb_boinc2docker work units.
Wonders never cease.

Dave,

Have your tried this technique by reNeutrino (start at messaage 4565)?
https://universeathome.pl/universe/forum_thread.php?id=551
It runs Ubuntu under Hyper-V, and is very efficient.

I almost got it to work; you have to enable Hyper-V and disable WSL (and maybe also Virtual Machine Platform) in "Turn Windows features on or off" before creating the Ubuntu VM.

And I had to use the "Quick Create" option. I could not get the "New" option to work with my previously downloaded Ubuntu .iso.
That will give you Ubuntu 20.04, but after a "sudo apt update", you will be upgraded to 20.04.2.

The problem was that I could not get copy and paste to work between Windows 10 and the Ubuntu VM. That nixed the deal for me.
It might work for you.

These are not exactly new:
https://www.mlcathome.org/
https://quchempedia.univ-angers.fr/athome/about.php

And Cosmology@Home was originally based on AI, but they are changing gears and out of work.
I don't know when it will be back, or if it will use AI.

EDIT: But the biggie will be trRosetta. You will have to search around for speculation about it. There is no official announcement that it will get to BOINC users, though they use it internally at Rosetta, and it might appear on Ralph first.

MLC@Home is down.
I think they are changing their server, so maybe it is planned.

EDIT: Back up.

It looks like WCG is down. I guess it is OPNG overloading the servers, or something like that.
But I had several MIP's erroring out at the same time too, which may be related.

It is all rather unusual, and I don't see any way to check on it, as the website is down too.

EDIT: The website is now up, but slow to respond. I have several OPNG stuck in download.

Thank you. I had stopped looking, but have a new machine I could try on Cosmology.

Pull out the graphics card and reboot. It should still connect.
(If you have an internal graphics adapter, you could use that.)

Then put the graphics card back in. I have never had much trouble getting BOINC to change.

EDIT: For that matter, just try installing VirtualBox. That should easily confuse it.

Post:
Is there any way I can force a change of host id?
It is easy enough on Ubuntu by just updating. This is the same machine with different Linux kernels:
https://www.cpdn.org/show_host_detail.php?hostid=1507626
https://www.cpdn.org/show_host_detail.php?hostid=1508717

But you could probably do it by just changing the PC name if you are on Windows.
And you could then change the name back again I suppose.

My default is 0.1 + 0.1 and I assume that setting nnt then changing the buffer to 10 + 10 before requesting work would have the same effect without requiring me to run down the existing WUs first?
If the BOINC scheduler behaved the way we thought it should, we wouldn't be here discussing it.

I have detached, rebooted, reattached several times, with and without setting nnt for all other projects and/or increasing the buffer size to 10+10 before reattaching. I have not set nnt and then run the existing buffers down to zero as I am loath to do that and waste good processing time.

The only problem I have had with the Linux version (other than the 32-bit libraries) is the buffer being too short. It depends on what other projects you are running too. For example, Rosetta tends to be rather long also. Often the default 0.1 + 0.5 day buffer is not enough.

The world won't end (just yet) if you let it run dry, and set it to 0.5 + 1.0 days. That should work.

Does anyone know if GPU Grid is working on Covid 19? I can't tell if they are.

No, nothing specific to COVID-19. But they do a lot of other good work, and I usually have a couple of cards on it.
They usually don't say much until a project is completed and they publish on it.

If you click on a topic, you can see their most recent publications, which seem to be in the Cancer and Methods topics.

At least I can upload work to GPUGrid now, but the website still seems to be down.
I don't know about downloads.
