We had a machine crash (actually more of a hang) last night. The machine was mork, which runs the boinc database. MySQL recovered surprisingly quickly. So now I am letting the queues drain before bringing the project on line.

Sorry, we ran out of work last night. It was a combination of AP not running and of having some stale "working files". A working file lays claim to a given beam so that we do not have duplicate splitting. If a splitter dies and leaves a working file behind, that beam is locked up.

We'll leave the project up until ~9am.

The results storage array has crashed, so results uploading and processing has been turned off.
