Cosmology@home is down for at least 2 weeks now. Can't access website to find what is wrong.
Any1 knows anything?

Cosmology has been in its death throes for as long as the past 2 years. Some time late last year, it became impossible for anyone to log in (SSL error). As of just now, the web server is not accepting connections.
Attempts to contact the site owner, Dr Marius Millea, have been unsuccessful. It is almost as if Dr Millea doesn't care about the people who are crunching his data for him, so long as we continue to crunch it.
I found out that the site is running off a system at the Poincare Institute, Sorbonne University, in Paris. I was going to contact them to inform them of the situation, but instead I decided that I had had enough, and simply removed Cosmology@home from my boinc setup.
As far as I am concerned, C@H is dead -- and it has also been removed from the list of available boinc projects for the reasons stated above.
So my recommendation to you (and to anyone else) is that you just give up on the project, and go do some work for people who will actually appreciate what we are doing. There are plenty of worthwhile projects available, so find something that interests you and go crunching :)


@hadron Thanks for the update. I see your point. I guess it is time for me too to pull the plug in C@H.
I do have other projects i am contributing and i will just continue with these.
I just saw C@H racking many projects ready to upload for some time now and got me wandering what is going on.
Thanks again for clarifying to me the situation at hand.

Seems that CPDN files are causing the crashes[/quote]

Post:
A couple of days ago my BOINC Manager 7.6.33 keeps exiting on start up.
I have installed it on a WinXP system (not as a service) for more than a year now crunching SETI, WCG, CPDN, Rosetta, Cosmology, Enigma and Milkyway without any problems.
I reinstalled the Manager a couple of time but the problem remains. I went to the event log but nothing appears!!
Any ideas on that?
