Looks like it. I am getting Nbody only at the moment. With about

10% giving "error while computing".

I've gone back to Collatz until the normal Milkyway WUs are being dished out.

I presume the Nbody work has it's own client, so how do I get my system to download this work? I am assuming this Nbody work is for GPUs, which I see from elsewhere appear not to exist?

Nope. CPU only. Apparently GPU to come later.

Did the project stop using the old workunits in favor of the N-Body workunits? For about the last day, I can only get one or two workunits every now and then. And, the ones I do get are resends because of invalid results from another user. It looks like there are no new workunits being sent out.

    It happens because the work units are validated! Monday started early....

      Then you'll head for Collatz as DNETC is in the middle of a server upgrade/change.

      Indeed, absent dealing with the underlying problem (which is growing something of a beard), lots of server regular stop/starts just might keep things going. We the weekend in view, it seems that on every Friday a single or double server reboot should be done automatically.

      It's Friday, the server has been working well for a few days, time for it to fall over...

      At Dnetc, the maintenance was announced (though only an hour before the upload/download servers were taken offline), and then the message boards were up for another several hours. But as of about 5PM yesterday (PDT) poof -- it went gone. In the announcement, it was noted the outage was expected to take 5 hours -- perhaps each of the hours turns out to be 600 minutes long....

      Then you'll head for Collatz as DNETC is in the middle of a server upgrade/change.

      Ouch -- things might just have gotten worse -- can't connect to Collatz either.

      So it is clear that a number of us poor fools are (and have been) aware of MW being in dead state for several hours, do we have any wagers on the awareness of this in RPI land?

      This many months long intermittent problem has not been a subject of much public discussion coming from the folks at RPI -- which of course does little in the way of confidence (or compassion) building......

      Definitely!

      DNETC is unobtainable still

      Milkyway is not dishing work as the most of the servers are down

      Collatz is obtainable but intermittent and the site is slow.

      That's the main GPU projects gone south.
