Where do you get that from? Almost everyone is capable of vbox if they try.


None of my systems are capable.

Do they have any non-Python work? None of my systems are powerful enough to run Python.

You beat me to it. Very surprised.
No idea how long it will last - hopefully sufficient for everyone to get something - fingers crossed.
Grabbed 1 task per core, then found I'm chock-full of WCG tasks so buffer already full <sigh>


Well, the number of tasks ready to send seems to be increasing despite people downloading them (tasks in progress has gone way up) so it's looking good so far.

Now a larger number of tasks are going out.

Tasks ready to send: 24498
Tasks in progress: 70966

A few hours ago tasks ready to send was zero. It looks like they have fixed whatever the issue was.

...Such things should be fixed by BOINC programmers centrally, rather than manually editing certificate file by each user.

I could not agree more. First, this never should have happened. Second, the solution has to be 'pushed' to each client versus having every user manually edit a configuration file on each machine doing work.

While it's well within my capabilities to make the changes it's a matter of professional 'outrage' (I'm a former S/W developer who understands how things should be done) I'm going to leave things as they are until the powers that be correct the problem properly. In the meantime the WGC OpenPandemics project is getting a lot more processing time on my systems.


I have checked the master file at https://raw.githubusercontent.com/bagder/ca-bundle/master/ca-bundle.crt and it also contains the expired cert. It looks like the BOINC team used the latest ca-bundle.crt file available. Blame the maintainers of the ca-bundle.crt file.
