The Mac is crunching away on a new task now. :-)

Just a reminder that I'm still awaiting the unblocking of my Mac host (400307).

(BTW, is there a known average or typical waiting time for unblocking?)

Hello again,

Moderator Les, thank you for the consideration given to the request to unblock my Mac.

I do also appreciate the procedure that you outlined, but please note that the need for us to contact CPDN after upgrading BOINC was not actually mentioned in the original email alerts, at least not the ones that I'd received on 16th April. (I'd just assumed that the upgrade would be auto-detected by the CPDN scheduler on a subsequent upstream communication.)

A couple of additional notes:

[1] Moderator Ananas' post (message 48908) suggests that work requests to the CPDN scheduler do include BOINC version info. If so, might this not facilitate automatic reactivation of a blocked host whose BOINC has since been upgraded?

[2] As I hinted earlier, unlike the Mac host, my Windows PC host (828129) has somehow been unaffected by this embargo, even though it too had been running BOINC 7.2.39 until I received the email alert(s). When I'd checked the PC's host details before my first post, it wasn't blocked. E.g., its BOINC version was correctly reported as (upgraded to) 7.2.42, and its WU quota was normal. (So if automatic unblocking is not being done, then I guess the PC had not gotten blocked in the first place?)

Anyway, I look forward to having my Mac resume being a productive member of the CPDN BOINC community. :-) I guess I'll also have to keep a sharper eye on BOINC releases in the future.

Thanks again.

Regards,
--P

Hello,

I too am seeing this issue on my Mac computer only (by contrast, my PC seems to be fine).

Last month I'd received two notices (for my Mac and PC) from CPDN about upgrading from BOINC 7.2.39 to 7.2.42, and I did do so on both hosts. However, as I don't regularly check BOINC's progress (it's set to auto-hide on login), I only recently noticed that all CPDN communication from my Mac are still being rejected for the reason mentioned in this thread.

Could my Mac host (400307) please be cleared for further work?

Also, since this issue may be affecting many other Mac users as well, perhaps a more general solution could be implemented by the project developers?

Regards,
--Paul
