We were all under an NDA, that included Rom and Charlie. Can you imagine trying to get a new job, but not being allowed to say what happened to your previous job? That's what Rom ran into. He is doing some contract work here and there, and luckily he did get confirmation now that WCG is picking him up for a while.


Nice..he'll do some good work to improve their clients I expect.

[quote]I was notified somewhere in April but had already had the feeling something was off since development of the 7.5/7.6 client had fallen silent all of a sudden. I was also sending in emails to the developers and for the first time in forever getting no answers, or non-answers back.

Since that time I have also been asking time and time again when the public was going to be notified. Well, I guess now that you all are, I can go back to resting easy.


Thx again for the info...hindsight is 20/20 I guess

Simple explanation really, the cheques ran till 1 July.


Makes sense.

So, we're talking about BOINC, not SETI. We're doing it on the SETI boards partly because of an accident (?) of timing - David's announcement came at the start of a holiday weekend, and most projects' (plural) staff will have been away from their desks..."

Has anyone considered long-term fundraising via Boinc Utopia. I really don't consider it crowd fundraising.

Milkyway has raised over $4,000 there and I would be more then happy to offer to manage the efforts to do such fundraising if interested.

Hallelujah, the cat is finally out of the bag. I've known about this since April and it has been very difficult for me to answer some posts on the various forums in which people asked for bug fixes or enhancements/additional add-ons. Most of the time I went and ignored them, because I wasn't allowed to breathe anything about this pending doom. :-/


Jord-I feel you should've been allowed to tell people sooner or someone should have. However it is what it is.

Thank you for the information

Was posted on Bitcoin Utopia:

BOINC's funding from the U.S. National Science Foundation has ended,
at least for the time being.
This funding supported me, Rom Walton, and Charlie Fenton.
We're now working on other things,
although we'll stay involved in BOINC at some level.

The BOINC project will continue, and will be run according to
a community-based model rather than centrally.
In essence, the people who contribute to BOINC now make the decisions about it.
This model is summarized here:
http://boinc.berkeley.edu/trac/wiki/ProjectGovernance
and described in detail here:
https://docs.google.com/document/d/1C6pU5RqidYBxk9oyAevm1yH1tn4Hw27oM8YpvsnR-gg

There will probably be little visible change.
The BOINC software will continue to work.
The translation system, Alpha testing project, BOINC web site,
message boards, and email lists will continue to operate.
However, any new development and major bug fixes to BOINC
will need to be done by volunteer programmers.
I'm confident that the BOINC community will meet the challenge.

I welcome your feedback.
Please post it to boinc_admin@googlegroups.com,
a new email list for discussions about the BOINC project as a whole.

-- David

Winning after an exhausting Relay for Life. All unpacked and off to bed

For those interested I just got home from our Relay for Life event. It ran Noon-Midnight this year. I was there @ 10:30 to help setup and I stayed for the entire event for the first time. I am completely exhausted, both physically and emotionally. As a whole, the event raised $42,000+ this year. Our Team came in as #1 with over $10,000.

Thank you all for the support!

Jacked up for our Relay for Life event tmrw...Noon-Midnight. They moved it indoors because it's supposed to downpour for 4 days straight. Not as fun because being outdoors w/ the tents and the track makes it special. Nonetheless I'm ready to go. Win
