Updated Server Daemons and Libraries
Hey Everyone,

I just updated the BOINC and MilkyWay@home server daemons to reflect the current most up-to-date versions available. If you notice you are still not getting work units for your GPUs or are having trouble in general post it here.

MilkyWay@home Down
Hey everyone,

Looks like the database has been down for a little over 30 hours and the boinc daemons are still struggling. Not entirely sure what happened, but I'm working through trying to fix it. I apologize for the slow progress being made, all of the major MilkyWay@home scientists, including myself are visiting collaborators in Canada and have been quite busy. I will try to get things fixed over night.

Jake

[edit]

Everything seems to be working now. I'll check back in the morning to make sure everything is still working.

MilkyWay@home Version 1.38 Released
Hello Everyone,

I just released the newest version of the MilkyWay@home application (1.38). The only major change to this version is an inclusion of the newest BOINC libraries in an attempt to improve compatibility with the new graphics cards.

Mac users will still receive the 1.36 application version for the time being while we work on securing a new Mac computer to build and test on for the future.

If you notice any issues with this application please post them here.

Happy Crunching,

GPU Issues Mega Thread
Hey everyone,

I am going to spend some time specifically looking into the GPU issues for the next couple days. Can everyone please post the exact issues you are having here? This includes quotes of the error messages you are seeing and any other information you think is useful. I've been going through old forums posts trying to decide where I think the problem is and I am still unsure where the problem is.

Science Page Now Available in Russian
Hey Everyone,

One of our fellow crunchers "Shmya-2" was kind enough to take the time to translate our science page to Russian. For those of you interested in giving it a read please visit here.

Thank you Shmya-2.

MilkyWay@home Server Maintenance
Hey Everyone,

Sorry the server was down for so long. I upgraded the operating system on the server yesterday and some of the upgraded programs did not want to play nice. Everything seems to be working well now.

If you see any persisting errors on the website, or coming from BOINC please post them here.

Windows 32-bit Application Release
Hello Crunchers,

We now have an officially supported Windows 32-bit application for CPU and GPU crunching. If you have any issues with the application please post them here and I will do my best to address them.

Sorry this took so long,

Windows 32-bit Application Progress Update
Hello Cruncher,

I just wanted to let everyone know that we have just set up a test platform for Windows 32-bit which should allow us to begin work on building and testing a 32-bit Windows application for Separation with Modfit. I make no promises that this will be a quick process, but it is something we are working on.

Happy Crunching,

Jake

[edit]
Update: I currently have a CPU version of our Windows 32 bit application compiled and initial tests look good. I will be working on the Windows 32 bit OpenCL application for the rest of the night. Hopefully, that will be compiled by morning. If everything goes well in testing, I suspect maybe a release of a Windows 32 bit application for Separation on Monday.

Update2: I currently have both a CPU and GPU version of MilkyWay@home compiled for Windows 32-bit. I plan to do some extensive testing of the applications tonight and will hopefully release them tomorrow, assuming they are as intended. Sorry they are coming a day late, the GPU application proved to a bit tricky to get working.

Thank you for your continued support,

New Look for the Science Page
Hello Crunchers,

I would like to announce a new look for our science page. In an attempt to bring the style of the science page more in line with that of the rest of the webpage, we did a visual overhaul of the page.

In addition to the visual reformatting, I did a lot of back-end reformatting of the page which should allow us to more easily edit it in the future. This is just the first step in our attempt to make the science page more interesting, complete and reader friendly. Look for a content update on the page to come in the new few weeks.

If you guys have anything you would like to see included on the page, or any general questions about the science we are doing with the project, feel free to post them here.

Happy Crunching,

Jake
