Tonight's database problem was caused by a bunch of queries to a certain forum thread hanging. I don't know yet whether this was an accidental or a deliberate denial-of-service attack. Probably accidental, but I'm checking it out anyway.

Thanks for the update. FYI the front page is slow to load.

Thanks for the update Eric. My modest Transfers Queue finally cleared itself again tonight. Second times a charm. I haven't requested any new tasks this time. I'll wait until things clear a bit.

I've wondered if the earlier Boinc client versions that don't have 'Project Backoff' built into them might also present the appearance of a denial of service attack on the upload servers. I've noticed that many people are still using older client versions.

To Eric & to the rest of the crew,

You guys deserve all the credit for all of the hard work that is due to you - my deepest appreciation goes out to everything you do. All though it doesn't seem like it sometimes, we all feel that way ^_~ .....

Sincerely,
The "other" Eric :p ~

Glad you're back in to work Eric. These are getting to be some long hours for you. Keeping my fingers crossed you find and fix the problem quickly and can get some rest.
