For some reason the date on my PC was set one month into the future. I don't know when this happened, but it did not stop the climate modeling run.

When I set the date to be correct a few days ago, modeling stopped, understandably because suddenly it appeared my machine had gone back in time.

I assume that the task that was in progress must be terminated and I must request a new task, unless anyone knows of a way to take up where I left off when the date was reset.

It may help to know what the error message was in the Messages tab. And perhaps a few either side of the one saying why it's stopped.

Also, are any of the three Suspends showing Suspended? (Projects tab, Tasks tab, Menu->Activity->Suspend)

And have you tried Exiting from BOINC, re-booting, re-starting BOINC?

the tasks were indicating suspended by user but attempts to resume did not work. Rebooting, the oldest fix-it solution in the world, did! Now why didn't I think of that??? Thanks for your help.
