From the project's news board
------------------------------------------------

We are still trying to fix the suspend Linux wrapper issue but no progress yet.

A short conclusion so far:

- the latest boinc wrapper code is working with suspend
- suspend is working on BOINC client (view status) but status failed in background on wrapper and app (running further)
- linux and windows source code (without the latest changes) are the same where suspend is working on windows

If you have some experiences with c++ and BOINC let me know. The current wrapper source code can be found here https://srbase.my-firewall.org/sr5/forum_thread.php?id=360&postid=8934

CPDN has both an internal credit issue that they are looking at .... (Amounts of Credit)

AND a Stat's export issue that they are holding on until the credit problem above is resolved. Stat's have not exported in about 55 days.

For Dave and Richard

Thank you for all that the two of you do. I am a reasonably non-technical cruncher that has never moved past Windows and Android but I really appreciate your time, effort and attention to detail.

As I don't have the skill set to contribute the way you gentlemen do I try to focus on longevity.

Thank you again

Crunching since 1999

For me, the "Home Page" resolves to www.climateprediction.net and everything of interest is at www.cpdn,org. And www.cpdn.org is down. The link to the real home page seems to resolve to the www.climateprediction.net now, but that is not where my browser wants to go. It wants to go to www.cpdn.org. So perhaps this home page is a fall-back address in the DNS somewhere.

https://downforeveryoneorjustme.com/cpdn.org?www=1

Is Cpdn.org down?
Checking if cpdn.org is down or it is just you...
It's not just you! cpdn.org is down.


You are correct the home page at https://www.climateprediction.net/ is accessible, but all of the sub pages are not accessible from the home page or from the BOINC client or directly from a browser.

And another FB/Twitter update 25 minutes ago:

"DB2 maintenance has finished, and both the website and forums are accessible again. Finally, we now run from
the new SSD storage system. The science DB transfer has been delayed in the process, now estimated to finish
by 6pm. Thank you for your support."


For what it is worth the Page loading times are quick at the moment

Well the home page is reachable, but the Server Status page and account login pages time out.

37) Message boards : Questions and problems : BOIC Unexpected Exit (Message 110778)
Posted 20 Dec 2022 by Profile Bill Freauff
Post:
I have a Win 10 system that had some pop up communication related errors and I thought that it appeared to more on the BOINC side than the Project App / Work Unit side. I reloaded BOINC and then my BOINC would not connect with the Client or would not stay connected. I then uninstalled BOINC and reinstalled ... no change. I can't see the error log as it won't connect to the Client.

The exit error states "The BOINC Client has exited unexpectedly 3 times in the last 5 minutes. Would you like to restart it again ? "

Is there a way to look at the the error log contents via the BOINC program folder ? Or does anyone have a suggestion for me ?

Thanks

Grumble: "We are experiencing a higher than expected number of calls at the moment..."

Given that message never changes whatever time of day or whatever day of the week it is, why the $&*^^$£ have they not changed their expectations?

Don't get your hopes up that they will ever change their message.

Just about anywhere you call in the states that uses an automatic answer svc (technically called an 'IVR') ... have this disclaimer.

They would prefer you press a specific key to leave them a message so they can return your call at their convenience.

If I call somewhere, I don't want to talk to a machine. I want a living, breathing, blue blooded person that speaks, reads & writes English as their primary language, not some variation of pidgin engrish.



... Blue blooded ???

A Florida woman has sued the makers of Velveeta Shells and Cheese, claiming the dish takes too long to make.

The Kraft Company markets its microwaveable cups as "ready in 3.5 minutes" but Amanda Ramirez says it takes longer.

The $5m (£4.2m) lawsuit claims the time advertised does not include preparation time - opening the lid and sauce pouch, before adding water and stirring.

Kraft Heinz Foods Company described the lawsuit as "frivolous".
Funny Americans. 😂


And in this case the company is correct... frivolous. Personal opinion home made is better and if you are in that big of a hurry your life values are off.
