Hi...
i've noticed today 2 of my tasks were finished with a "aborted by project" message. Checking the log I can see:

1/15/2019 10:24:13 | Rosetta@home | Result RK190110-A_HT_DHD_66_B_HT_DHD_45.pdb-fnd_SAVE_ALL_OUT_711721_310_0 is no longer usable
1/15/2019 10:24:13 | Rosetta@home | Result RK190110-A_HT_DHD_32_B_HT_DHD_30.pdb-fnd_SAVE_ALL_OUT_711654_381_0 is no longer usable
1/15/2019 10:24:13 | Rosetta@home | Result RK190110-A_HT_DHD_55_B_HT_DHD_51.pdb-fnd_SAVE_ALL_OUT_711692_3383_0 is no longer usable

So, what does it mean? I lost time and cpu power that could have been useful in another project if this one if faulty...

Is it the project/software that's faulty? Or my boinc setup?

Thanks!

To me these seem like WUs that got cancelled by the server that were running on your machine.

I too have a fair amount of these errors between the 14th and 15th of this month.

It's the project's fault. I'd wager someone realized an unnecessary batch was released and "recalled" them to avoid any further wasted computation from the volunteers.
