Ok. Ten days since the last no go update.
They have now fallen into the who cares category.
Time to stop thinking this will ever be viable project again.

I have not given up hope yet.... But Rosetta is in the toilet also, I can't get any units now. It wants virtualbox installed. I tried it once, and it does not work well, so I won't try again.

Older 5.2 versions seem to work better with BOINC vs 6.1. That doesn't change the memory and space requirements though which is the main detractor for me.

I tried to run it on a 32 core, 64 thread EPYC with 128 gig ram. It would only use 8 of the 64 threads. Unacceptable.

WCG MIGHT be UP ! I tried to refresh the news page and nothing. Then I went to the main site and it says its up. I can't get BOINCTASKS to come up, so I can try connecting to it, and this box is doing PG. But I thought I would let you know, it might be up.

This would seem to be the news article:


It says the "website" is up, but it isn't clear if that includes the BOINC server.
