Hello, I'm running a task for climateprediction.net and there is an upload pending but not working. I've seen on the 'server status' page, that the upload server uploader.oerc is not running, so I guess my computer is trying to upload to this server (I live in Morocco). Is it possible to change the upload server in the settings or do I just have to wait till the server is up again?

The upload servers are indeed fixed. There has been an outage on one over the weekend, which is now working and uploads have restarted.

Upload outages used to be a serious problem when BOINC imposed a relatively short upload timeout (10 days), but it's now a much larger number - so uploads will eventually succeed unless there is a problem with the connection itself.

Also, the upload server marked in red as Not Running is NOT the one for these current models.
The non working server is at a data centre miles away from Oxford, and doesn't show on the list of OUR servers.
