I have been unable to get new tasks since 4 August 2020. My computer information is
GenuineIntel
Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-4570 CPU @ 3.20GHz
[x86 Family 6 Model 60 Stepping 3]
Number of processors 4
Coprocessors NVIDIA GeForce GT 755M (1024MB) OpenCL: 1.2
Operating System Darwin 19.6.0
BOINC version 7.16.6
I am getting no error messages, I just get no tasks to work on. The server status show all servers running and 28773 tasks ready to send. So why can't I get tasks to work on?

Exit BOINC, then restart it. In the Advanced view, Tools, Event log to see what is going on.

Most likely reason- you have a 4 core/thread CPU with a large cache and/or limited processing time and your Resource share settings are heavily in favour of your other project (Asteroids@home) so it's not possible for the system to do any Rosetta work so it's not getting any.
Since most of the work you are doing for Asteroids results in errors due to missing deadlines (which are 10 days), so that's why it's the most likely reason for no Rosetta work (which has 3 day deadlines).
