For some time, now, my BOINC instance has posted the message "Waiting to contact project servers." In that time, I have seen no new activity. What am I missing? Thanks ... and Happy Holidays.

Well, it could be that there hasn't been any Windows work for a long time.

Les is correct about the lack of available Windows tasks. However, your inability to contact the cpdn servers is due to a boinc certificate issue that was solved in boinc version 7.16.20. You can download that version here.

Thank you, Geo. That solved the problem. (I thought BOINC checked for and installed updates automatically.)
