Yesterday I tried to get some tasks on host 49369 none showed up. I checked my task list today & saw I had the following tasks assigned but not showing up in boinc 7.0.36

7260598
7260600
7260602
7260604
7260605
7260606
7260607
7260608

Can these tasks be reassigned without having to reset project? All deadlines are round 1 Jan 2013 | 0:52:03 UTC

I think the default action for BOINC is to try to re-assign work if you request more - not sure if it still works like that.

Thanks I did ask for new work & got 5 new jobs. 1 from session 1339 3 from 1340 & 1 from 1491 I had to abort from because it wouldn't download. Yes the way I understand BOINC is to try to re-assign work if you request more is that the server has to support and have turned on re-send lost task's.

There might be some database issues.
Every time I want to check my task list it either takes a lot of time till it loads or doesn't load at all.
And I noticed I have two ghost tasks this morning, which doesn't show up in my BOINC client (cannot provide URLs now as access to the task list doesn't work actually).

I can confirm the local problems with loading web pages. Sometimes I show these fault lines. But this is not always the rule.

Notice: fwrite() [function.fwrite]: send of 5 bytes failed with errno=32 Broken pipe in /mnt/hosting/www/burp_production/libraries/php-java-bridge/Java.inc on line 831

Notice: Uninitialized string offset: 6 in /mnt/hosting/www/burp_production/libraries/php-java-bridge/Java.inc on line 787

My "ghost task" appears to be one that was successfully completed according to my host, so I second the theory about database problems. Loding the tasks list also takes a very long time for me.

The database is having a bit of trouble showing the result lists at the moment - a small cleanup is about to happen over the next few hours.
