    Well, there seems to be an issue with psummary, nothing to worry about as it won't have any negative effect on folding.

    A Server is down and PG has already been notified:
    171.64.65.60 classic vspg10a - full DOWN
    171.64.65.61 GPU vspg10b - full DOWN
    171.64.65.62 classic vspg10c - full DOWN
    Source

    For the Classic Clients, there isn't any problem as they have long deadlines. Hopefully, this will be resolved soon.

    This is specific to bigadv WUs. Earlier, there was a release of a reactivated Project 2682, however, there were some memory problems and now it has been stopped. Some modifications later, it is re-released as Project 2692:

    If you have installed the SMP2 Client, you can download these WUs instead of your Client sitting idle or having to attempt several times before getting a WU.

    Do i understand you correctly. Can you somehow force the client to download a specific wu or projects??
    How does one do that?

    There isn't any way to force the download of a particular Project. It simply means that initially there was only X number of Servers for SMP2 WUs but they were getting hit pretty hard due to the sheer number of SMP Clients that people used. This caused the load to be so high on the Server that it was refusing further connections. (To be specific, the Net Load was 200, which is pretty high. More details in this thread) Now there is X+1 SMP Server. The following steps are being taken:

    1) To combat this situation, they have brought a new SMP Server online to help ease the load and hopefully in the future, more servers will be for SMP WUs.

    2) A new project was released so that the SMP Clients can continue to work :)

    What I meant by downloading was that if there isn't any Project X WUs on the Server, you will hopefully be redirected to another Server with Project Y WUs which you can download and fold.

    HOWEVER, there seems to be a PPD problem with these new Projects. Right now, they are on hold until further notice. This is the official response:
