    CPU days worth of units waiting to upload and the server is down. It has been down for days. Is this project actually viable ? Is anyone home ?
    Does the volunteers contribution of time money and computing power mean so little that the project is not actually checked ?
    Answers on a post card please as it would be faster than a response from the project.

      Another day, still no reply, still no server. All units will soon be overdue.

        it is just 12 hours till my 16 finished ones reach their deadline. do you just delete them when the deadline arrives.
        are their any other projects that give the same points for the same cpu time?

          Don't delete them. When / if the server comes back up they will be uploaded. If the project has any integrity you will be awarded credit.
          POGS is good on cpu, as is Universe.Of course there are others as well.
          Post on your teams forum and someone may help point you in the right direction or look on our forum at The Scottish Boinc Team http://www.tsbt.co.uk/forum/index.php Lots of info there too. You can even join without being a member of the team :)

          and another day of ........ nada.

            Does extended downtime occur with some frequency on this project? Or is this now a dead project?

                To xyzzy: It is a poorly administered project.

                Downtime the last time we received the "server not running" message took almost 3 weeks before being resolved with absolutely NO COMMUNICATION FROM THE ADMINISTRATORS.

                If I wasn't trying to reach 10 million on this project, I would have dumped it long ago!

                So, in answer to your question directly, yes, there ARE extended downtimes that happen about every 1-2 months.
