I meant a restart of BOINC; Mac wasn't rebooted. But I would think (naively?) the last CP checkpoint should *always* survive *any* kind of restart. Thanks for your efforts; I'm a volunteer board mod elsewhere.

Most of my BOINC projects take a few minutes to a few hours, but CP takes days to run, so I was bummed that after two days (blocking other projects because "Switch between tasks every N minutes" isn't working) my two CP tasks aborted simultaneously with "Computation error" after a restart, despite checkpointing. So I'm sorry to have to abandon CP; I don't want it wasting more cycles. These were my first two tasks after rejoining CP since being away a few years; I don't remember why I left, perhaps for the same reason. 16GB iMac MacOS 10.13.6.

It's quite frustrating to run for 450 hours and then get a computation error (this for hadcm3n...). Are the results still useful with this failure? I'm tempted to quit CPDN if I'm uselessly keeping other projects from running. But if the results are still useful with computation error, so be it. Thanks.
