I haven't been receiving tasks for a few weeks now. I have detached and reattached to the project, updated it, and double-checked my settings and I still can't get work units. I also added a lot more disk space to accommodate the system requirements. Still nothing. Any advice?

Thank you

There hasn't been much new work recently - but some did come out today and has already been snapped up by the large number of computers that had run out of work.

There is a discussion here - it might be good idea to subscribe to that thread. You'll then get early warning of any new batch of models.

If I can ask one more thing, I'd like some help getting the graphics to show. The last few times I had work, the "Show Graphics" button was always grayed out. Do all tasks support this? Is there some other software I need to download? I already checked my opengl support and it looks fine.

Thank you for your help, I subscribed to the thread.

Unfortunately, the newer model types preferred by the researchers these days, don't have graphics.
They don't use the BOINC graphics themselves, so no one is writing the code.

The only tasks I have seen which do have graphics in the past three months are the hadam3p ones. I have one machine that gets turned off when not in use and this has one of them running.
