Recently I started tweaking settings to try and allocate the project more CPU and GPU time, don't want Collatz Conjecture and Prime Grid hogging everything.

I went from 16% to just over 38%, more resources than any of the other five projects are allocated...but I'm not getting ANY work units despite the server showing 27 available.

I have my system set to grab a weeks worth of work, this worked fine in the past, but now nothing is happening. Is there some secret setting I am unaware of?

For obscure reasons the minimum number of tasks displayed is always a small number, currently 27. So 27 is really zero.

When new tasks are issued the reported number will go up by hundreds or thousands. There was a big release recently, so I'm sure there will be more along shortly.

I have seen this on two other projects and have been told it is a BOINC server bug. Many projects, the number of tasks available never drops below thousands so no one ever notices it.
