Berkeley.edu had a lightning strike. Their servers and acouple of neighborhoods around the university were without power. Try back later.

Say, how does it decide how many instances of a project to download? For instance, I have 15 instances of rosetta@home, but I manually paused all but 1 so I could run some other projects (right now, I'm running climateprediction.net on one core - I'd like to run 2 of these but it doesn't support that, rosetta@home on one core, einstein@home on two cores, and seti@home on the GPU - it uses about 3% of the CPU). All the rosetta instances have a deadline a week from today (the 26th), but with each one taking 4 hours, there's no way I'm going to get all of those done in time. (2 done, 1 running, 12 paused) That would mean running my PC about 7.5 hours a day, which I probably won't do. What does it do if a project is past the deadline?
