I already have set a subscription to the news thread in the PHP board, but it doesn't seem to be working. In the last weeks, I didn't get any information about new postings, but the subscription is still active.

Upload server uploader.oerc down again! Planned or not? Hopefully the first but I fear the worst.

OK, Oxford has their priorities, well, I have a lot of results to upload and going on a vacation now so I guess most of them will be lost, well well


@cwhyl: So if you are returning from vacation after the 14 days limit has hit you, this could be a possible workaround for you before you leave:

Stop BOINC, make a backup copy of your BOINC folder (or BOINC and DATA folders if using BOINC 6.x). Open client_state.xml in some kind of a text editor and remove the whole climate prediction project. A CPDN-project starts with the <project> section and ends with the <project_files> section. Don't forget the <active_task> group in the <active_task_set> section at the end of the client_state.xml file. This will only be there for still running projects. The ones that have finished don't have any. To avoid reporting of errors if you did something wrong, set the <user_network_request> option down near the end of the file to 3, that's the value for "no network connection". Now save your new client_state.xml and restart BOINC.

Now every project should run as before except CPDN, which should be missing. If something strange happens, errors or something, stop boinc, delete the BOINC and DATA folders, restore from your backup and try again. In germany we say "Versuch macht kluch" which means something like "Trial makes wise" ;-)

When you return from vacation, you can paste the complete climate project from the backup back into your active client_state.xml, including the <active_task> group(s). Now you can continue where you stopped before the vacation.

This is what I would do in your situation. Hope that helps and you're still at home!


Sorry, might be too late yet but I forgot to mention something important. You have to delete all CPDN related files and folders before you restart the client, remember, you've got a back up. Sorry for that.
