Whenever the one of the various MW BOINC servers (upload/download, scheduler, etc) goes down, have a deamon automatically submit an RSS post. That way our RSS readers would pick it up right away, and we can take appropriate action with our machines (move them temporarily to other projects).

You could even use such a thing to send a text message to the project admin.

Of course, this would not be necessary if it would be allowed that the queue be more than 30 minutes worth of work for fast GPUs.

I am not talking about the hardware. I am talking about the various BOINC software apps. Sorry if I was not clear. You can see them here:

So in this case, the hardware is obviously not down, or we would not be posting. And we would have gotten an RSS post saying that the "feeder" is down (among others).
