Well I got some WUs now but still have outstanding validations pending. Server status still shows all servers 'running'. There are 57000 + WUs waiting for validation according to computing work status. Is that normal? Is anybody out there ? Helloooooooooooo

No, there is no one here.

Well you asked.

But I expect it has something to do with the fact that Christmas comes to universities too.

OK ... so now validation of the few WUs offered and subsequently completed is OK but WU supply is currently 0.
Thanks to whoever fixed the validator problem ... maybe Santa will leave some WUs.
Merry Christmas, Joyeux Noel, Frohliche Weihnachten etc etc.

TN-Grid is getting to be my go-to project when nobody else has work. It is not yet listed by BOINC Manager, as it is still relatively new.

Confirmed on no new tasks - and validation figure increasing further.

Hopefully we can expect a quicker response as I assume more people are back this week

Looks good. It even has that "poorly" designed website common in cutting edge scientific project sites (to me, the worser the website is, the more legit the software/project lol).

What about WCG? I use that as my back-up.

Sure. I have a couple of Ryzens on it. But for a quick fill, TN-Grid does nicely. It is one of the few projects that does well on both Windows and Linux, so it is versatile in that regard.

I sometimes have a scheduling problem with it though; it tends to eventually fill up a machine regardless of the resource share setting, so I just devote a whole machine to it for long-term use.

Left the house 10hrs ago and in that time it seems we're back with tasks and validation up to date again. Good work.

Well the validator has caught up for my two machines, even though the numbers shown in the status may not be correct.

Did an update, loads of extra points added, status says no tasks available and validation way behind but 5 tasks came down.

No idea if I've just been lucky or something's happening, but we're all hand-to-mouth either way
