    What does this icon mean? WCG won't run for me after installing my new video card?

    Looks like WCG is on "snooze." Hover over the icon with your mouse, and then right click the mouse and see if "snooze" is checked. If it is, then just hover over that and left click your mouse.

    It looks like we lost Ion (kpresler) and runnin17.

    Ion didn't move immediately to another team, so I'm not sure what's up with that. Runnin17 went to Redraider.

    I'm sorry to see Ion leave and hope he will reconsider. I wasn't really around when he made most of his contributions, but I'm given to understand that they have been substantial.

    Of course I'm sure we all wish him well regardless of what he decides to do. :toast:

    Not sure what's up with ION, I think he was trying to get a team up and going for his school, I am trying to contact him to see if that's the reason. As far as runnin17, wish him the best over there. :toast: :laugh:

    Alright guys,

    Was able to breifly speak to [ION] and he seems to be having some pretty big problems within his family. Right now things are not too good for him so he's taking some time off from both WCG and the forums. If you guys have any questions about this, please DO NOT post in this thread, PM me instead. Thanks guys.

    I joined. Can't do too much, as I am in high school, but I will help all that I can. I also run other BOINC projects, mainly PrimeGrid and Milkyway@home.

    Guys,

    I got a pretty bad fever right now, and I'm burning! Obviously the rigs online don't help. I am going to try and keep them on as long as I can but they might be coming off to help keep my ambient temps normal, right now I feel like I'm melting! :(

    CP. Sorry you are not feeling well. Hope you get better soon.

    Hey guys, I'm having a problem with WCG. Ever since I switched out my motherboard and CPU (Sandy Bridge), I've not bee able to run WCG. When I try to run it, I get "Waiting to contact project servers", and it never goes past this. I've reinstalled WCG a couple of times with the same results. Any idea what the problem may be?
    Chicken Patty says thanks.

    Get well soon CP! :)

    Paulieg, do you have a firewall or anything that might be blocking the connection? That seems the most likely culprit. If that's not the issue, try resetting the project in BOINC. You could also check your settings for when to get work. Other than that, I don't know...

    It's funny. I could have swork I had reset projects after the motherboard/cpu swap, but I guess I didn't. The Sandy is up and running for a few days...just until I send in the board for a refund.
