Servers have been down for quite a while....
Should I reset the project (and sacrifice all the uploads that are still 'pending') ??

That's up to you.
The project disappeared into the ether with out even a whimper.
My best wild @$$ guess is a user returned a possible valid solution to the puzzle and project admin took server off-line to preserve to find, submit the answer and now awaiting confirmation.

Website is still registered to same blind / masked user at same IP address.
The web site has been unreachable for about 21 days now. Can't ping server IP address.

If it is unreachable at end of month it will be time to remove it from my PC's.

Thanks for the update.

I received a response to my inquiry at the BOINC message board. The answer is just a "rumor"....

Rumor from the BOINCNetwork Discord server:
I believe it’s summer break at the uni, he’s away until school starts. It’s a one-man show

It's Dead.... I think it is TIME TO REITRE THE PROJECT! See my reasons below.

1) No web site for almost 3 months [last contact > 2021-07-01 16:00:03 UTC (78 days 02:22:39 old)] and now there is a SECURITY ISSUE with the web site SSL CERTIFICATE:
Your connection is not private
Attackers might be trying to steal your information from www.kryptosathome.com (for example, passwords, messages, or credit cards). Learn more
NET::ERR_CERT_COMMON_NAME_INVALID
This server could not prove that it is www.kryptosathome.com; its security certificate is from garoa.club. This may be caused by a misconfiguration or an attacker intercepting your connection.


2) Seems the website has indeed been re-registered to different owners:

3) There now is ANOTHER website also at the same IP ADDRESS *hubzilla [dot] com [dot] br which was not there when it was an active project. *Hubzilla is a powerful platform for creating interconnected websites featuring a decentralized identity, communications, and permissions framework built using common ).
