Circa 1 July 2019 I had 8 tasks working, with several others pending, and one of the working tasks had gone on for over 100 days and had 10s of days to go.

Two weeks later, all of my working AND pending projects were gone, I had two now-working new projects, and I see today (18 July 2019) that one of those two dropped off the twig.

Question 1: How can I find out the status of the projects that disappeared?

Question 2: Was it my breath?

Looking at a one of your completed tasks and a couple of the ones that errored out, you have lots of suspend requests. In the manager click on options>computing preferences>disk and memory then ensure the option keep non-gpu tasks in memory while suspended is ticked. Experience from many of us has shown that this greatly reduces the number of tasks that crash.

The advice Dave provided is good, the models definitely don’t like repeated interruptions.

I did however notice that several of the WU’s that crashed on your computers have also failed on one or two other computers. It may be that you ran into a string of non-viable WU’s.
