Ping statistics for 208.68.240.16:
Packets: Sent = 4, Received = 0, Lost = 4 (100% loss).

It's been that way each time I've checked. The 19:30 UTC of the last Status page update and the 12:30 drop off on cricket are of course the same time. With everything so thoroughly tied together, there's no way for us to guess how much work it'll be to recover.

I hope that when ever PaddyM comes on line, and GeorgeM fallinto his final function, these upload/download burps should start to mellow out a bit.

I think someone broke in to the lab, and just simply stole the upload server. That, or a janitor needed an outlet for his vacuum cleaner...

Doesn't really bother me much though, I have work for another 14 days of downtime, if that would happen.


This is a test of the Emergency Moron System. Had there been a real moron in the room, there would've been a small mushroom cloud in the place where the idiot had been standing.

Agreed. Somewhat surprisingly, my cache was full before it went down. Should be 10-12 days that I can survive.

It feels just like that doesn't it? Something I have started to learn through SETI is to be very patient and let life flow around and over these slow downs. I used to get pretty upset when my RAC would drop by 25% and all was humming along just fine. No more. I turn to Netflix and my episodes of Burn Notice, MI-5, Plain Sight, or Jeremiah, etc. and just wait it out while enjoying myself. Makes no sense to let SETI hiccups take my emotions downhill. Life has been a good teacher for me in the ways of being centered and looking at the big picture. Your way of making humor out of a hassle is great. Thank to you Grumpy old Swede...

This is a minor annoyance for me.

Having fun trying to keep two projects (SETI and WCG) at around the same RAC. At least I won't run dry unless WCG goes down at the same time.

Yep it's only really a minor irritation in the scheme of things. The Seti gang have remote boot power strips so sometimes it can be reset from home, other times it requires a lab visit. Bruno is shown as green and running so no idea what the problem is. As I write it is 2am in Berkeley on Sunday morning, so they might leave it until 8am on Monday which is 30 hours away.

people scream like it's their life slipping away from them when their RAC drops... Let's not forget this is a volunteer project and there is a real life out there besides what happens on their computer. *putting things into perspective* ;-)

Well, the good thing is that finaly all downloads on my desktop machine came thru (at speeds I've never seen before... or at least not for quite long time). It was getting short on tasks ready to start (not so much on allocated tasks, that was not the problem).

And is still showing green - at 19:30 last night....

Interesting, again the crickets are showing about 70Mbs transfer rates on the green band, but not a lot on the blue band - looks as if the upload server, and whichever server does the status page has decided to have a weekend off.

And the Server Status screen is updated.

SETI@home server status information is also available in XML.

Somebody has kicked something, both Seti main and Beta are uploading and downloading workunits. :-))

It's 8am in Berkeley as I write, so someone in the team logged in early to see what the status quo was. Whoever it was, very many thanks, we owe you one ....
