Seti is having Major Problems, so no work is available. Because my long term debt is negative on all other projects, my computer is idle. This really needs to be fixed!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I not going to reset or suspend, either they fix it or loose my computing power! 4.25 worked fine!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Well, I understand your frustration - BOINC definitely is not perfect but we can adapt when necessary, can't we? I try to not babysit 4.45 but with the current almost disastrous situation in SETI (the only other project my machine crunches for) I did not see any other option except suspending it until things there got to a somewhat more normal state. This does not mean that I like the jokes "debt" plays when shuffling projects like cards.

There is a bug (fixed in 4.72) that caused the work download scheduler to count completed work as in progress until it is reported. If a CPU is out of work, the work download scheduler is supposed to try to contact any project for work (even if it has a negative LT debt).
