earlier today i checked the server status, and the web page told me there were more than 50000 units available. problem is that the server stubbornly refuses to send me any units although i have sent it MANY requests over the last few hours.

now the count is down to about 27000 but i still don't get any. what's going on?

PS. here's a few entries from the log:

Thu May 9 19:10:02 2013 | LHC@home 1.0 | update requested by user
Thu May 9 19:10:07 2013 | LHC@home 1.0 | Sending scheduler request: Requested by user.
Thu May 9 19:10:07 2013 | LHC@home 1.0 | Requesting new tasks for CPU
Thu May 9 19:10:08 2013 | LHC@home 1.0 | Scheduler request completed: got 0 new tasks
Thu May 9 19:10:08 2013 | LHC@home 1.0 | No tasks sent

note that it does NOT say no work available. so why don't i get anything?

i tried resetting the project, i tried upgrading boinc to the latest version (7.0.65) but that didn't help

so the problem is not at my end. hmm...

by the time someone gets around to fixing the problem, all the WUs will be gone and i'll lose out. again. :-(

I've suspended all other Projects so BOINC will "service" LHC more often. Hopefully, the problem at the server end will get fixed soon.

we had to back off to previous version of the software.
In the new version, there is a problem with unpacking the input file.

Now the distribution of the work should work.

Thank you for your patience and sorry for the troubles.
