Collatz went invisible last night -- its been unreachable for about 15 hours.

Anyone have any news about the outage.

I'm posting this as something of a test -- I posted a similar message over in the MW project crunchers page to see where 1st response happens.

OK -- so he's back at home - just posted this on the temporary Collatz home page:

"The Collatz server is currently down. I do not have an estimate of when it will be back online at this time. Please check back later."

This was posted on the Collatz home page today.

The Collatz server is currently down due to a hard drive controller failure. New hardware should arrive in the next day or two. A complete rebuild of the operating system, BOINC, and the Collatz software and project setup will then need to be done prior to the project coming back online. As this will be a complete rebuild, there is no sense hanging on to any completed workunits at this time. So, go ahead and abort any workunits you have whether they are complete or not. I expect the project will remain down for the next 10-15 days while I set it all back up and test it. Sorry for any inconvenience. And yes, I will make up for the lost credits once everything is back up and running.

Cheers.
