Nothing new that I have heard. The Observatory will remain open as long as it is funded. The damage will be repaired as funds and personnel allow. As with anything government funded ..... status will and can change fluidly with administrations.

. . Thanks Keith, hopefully it will continue to be deemed useful and worth operating.

Having only 1 computer haven't seen any issues other than the normal delays in validations..


. . Hi Steve,

. . If you are concerned about your RAC wait until you see what a guppi flood will do to it ... :(

. . [edit] {quaking in fear}

. . I just tried to count them. There are over 100 Blc05 tapes waiting to be split (I counted 124 but my screen is a little slow so I may have miscounted). The Filthy Fives are here in force. We are about to be overrun.

. . The gnarliest (slowest) Blc flavour of them all .... :(

Stephen

:( . . :( . . :(


. . OK I am a complete believer in Murphy's law so I am not surprised that, after I bad mouthed Blc05 WU's, this batch is behaving like the Blc04 batch that went through a few months ago and is now making a liar out of me.

. . So far they are running on my GPU in the same time as Arecibo tasks (as did the previous batch of Bloc04 tasks that I mentioned) and I am now waiting to see if they run equally as quick on the CPUs as their predecessors also did. I have no explanation for this behaviour, as they were still VLAR tasks, but I do love it ...

Stephen

I had to go digging through tasks but did find some of the BLC5. Yes, they appear to run about as fast, maybe faster than the BLC4's. The few CPU tasks run very fast, 1/2 to 1/3 faster than regular BLC tasks. AR's are up in the mid 0.006 - 0.007 range.

. . The Blc14 variety of the oumuamua WUs were taking up to 60 odd mins, the previous batch of excitingly quick Blc04 tasks were taking 35 to 36 mins, these are taking 31 mins (on my i5-6600). And like the previous fast Blc04 tasks these are taking 3 mins on the 970s. My new favourite batch of GBT work. :)

. . If they know the recipe for these particular sweeties they should use it to bake ALL GBT tasks :)

Nothing that I have found yet. Just got up and looked at the crunchers and see they are running out their caches. Doubt we ever hear what or why the maintenance is happening again. Hope it is short like yesterday's.

Good new bad news story it is.
Good news, the forums are open.
Bad news, work is not flowing in or out.

The problem is not that the the project is down once in a while. The problem is the lack of communication, as it seems to be a general problem of the project. It's ok to put every effort in the project, into science, yes. But it would be nice to keep the crowd updated. Just a little bit of information on what's going on so the contributors would have a better feeling of being a part of it.

Our upload server is malfunctioning. The projects are down until we can fix this.

Cheers.

Eh?? maybe not

My WAG is they were satisfied with how the New Server software was working at Beta and decided to try it on Main. If that's the case, we might now get any new work until next week.
Sometimes things that appear to work fine at Beta doesn't work exactly as expected on Main.
Been there, got the T-Shirt.

Well looks like we will all have to mine BTG or some other coin and Donate it so they can fix the download server if we all mine for the next 24hrs they should get enough Donations to buy a freaking new one or at least the parts needed to fix the one they have .

Come on guys and gals I Donated my 0.09 (0.01 - fees) last night another 10 more like that and they should have $1400 to help fix that server .

No excuses those that do have Bit Coin have done very well in the last 12 months so cough up some of that profit and help out please

Considering that the 4.4 earthquake this morning was centered only about 2 miles from the lab, it wouldn't be surprising that at least one server shook just enough to cause something to get a bit out of whack. Then again, it could be totally unrelated.
