|There is an excellent document about the European connectivity issue along
with work around proxy information here.
Appreciation goes to setiathomer tigher for putting together this page and

|We have confirmed that there is a known network peering issue between Cogent
(our ISP) and OpenTransit (France Telcom) that is affecting connectivity for
many participants in Europe
||1||5416||18 Apr 2005|
|There are reports of a connectivity problem between some parts of Europe and
our Cogent facing server

|Volunteers have ported SETI@home and BOINC to
a variety of platforms,
including Solaris/x86-64, Linux/x86-64, Linux/PPC, HP-UX, and FreeBSD.

|We have temporarily taken down 4.10;
it did not solve the graphics problem.
||1||4964||2 Apr 2005|
|We have released version 4.10 of the SETI@home application for Windows.
This release fixes a bug that caused graphics not to display.

|Now you can print a
SETI@home Certificate of Computation
that shows your Classic work, BOINC work, or both.

|In preparation for shutting down SETI@home Classic
(in about 1 month, hopefully)
we're trying to make sure that SETI@home Classic accounts
are linked to the proper SETI@home/BOINC account.
This is a bit complicated because
||1||5161||17 Mar 2005|
|We have cleaned up our account database,
merging accounts with conflicting email addresses.
This may cause some users to get 'Invalid or missing account key'
||1||5345||17 Mar 2005|
|We have updated the SETI@home/BOINC database
with current information from SETI@home Classic.

|All services are up and graceful shutdown in case of
a power outage is in place.

|Around 18:00 UTC we had another unexpected lab-wide power outage.
The cause of these random failures is being investigated by campus,
but all our systems/databases survived without any corruption

|The database has been restored and all services are back up.
The data server is very busy right now

|The RAID resync is complete and the project is up, although
the data server is a bit overwhelmed at the moment

|We have moved the primary database service over to the the new system.
See Technical News.
||1||4732||10 Feb 2005|
|The initial migration of the database to the new server is complete.
Tomorrow we will make this new server a database replica

|The validation backlog is slowly clearing
||1||4965||6 Jan 2005|
|We are still running a backlog of results waiting to be validated
and are looking into it.

|The waiting for validation/transition counts on the
server status page are disabled
until we diagnose a recent DB slowdown.
||1||4801||31 Dec 2004|
|We have decided to send out 4 copies of each workunit
and use a quorum size of 3 for validation.
Validation should be quick because a single result in error
will not delay reaching a quorum.
||1||5314||28 Dec 2004|
|We have started removing database records for results
that were completed more than 7 days ago.
This will limit the size of the workunit and result tables
in our database.
||1||4974||27 Dec 2004|
|We are experimenting with redundancy parameters.
We will continue to send 3 copies of each workunit,
but will validate results and grant credit
when 2 (rather than 3) of them are returned.
This should result in faster vali
