I don't see why it's off-topic; I only asked for an explanation of terms someone had introduced. Thanks for explaining though.

Be that as it may, LHC@Home is now apparently working again. I don't know what I did, but my problem seems to have solved itself.

I have all apps selected except benchmark, I've enabled running test applications, and I have VirtualBox installed and running. I've also recompiled sci-apps/boinc (this is a Gentoo box).

I now see, though, that I have only one project's tasks here: Einstein@Home. My other five projects are all declining to fetch tasks: Asteroids@Home, LHC@Home, MilkyWay@Home, SETI@Home and Universe@Home.

What are CVMFS and Singularity? How would I use them?

It's now eight days since LHC@Home showed any progress on the Statistics page of boincmgr. It keeps communicating with the server, but always reports "Not requesting tasks: don't need (CPU: job cache full; AMD/ATI GPU: )". That can't be true: I often have well over 200 tasks either running or waiting, but at the moment I have only about 40.
I've tried resetting the project and updating, but that's made no difference. What else can I try?

I'd like to join the others in thanking Alessio and Massimo for their informative bulletin. I'm sure none of us contributors of CPU time are in it for any reward, but one does wonder at times what exactly we're doing.

Many thanks for keeping us informed; it makes a difference.
