Hi Everyone,

The new server is in, and we'll be migrating everything over to it this week. We expect to have everything done Tuesday or Wednesday next week. We are expecting to be able to move the entire database over, so we don't expect that you'll lose any work or credit during the transition. Sometime along the way we'll be shutting down the old server for a period of time while we migrate the database over, and redirect milkyway.cs.rpi.edu over to the new machine.

We'll be trying to make it as seamless and painless as possible for everyone. Hopefully this will solve a lot of our crashing issues as well.

I am sure that sometime after the change over is complete and running just fine we will get a newsflash indicating what the plan and timing of the change over were...

BUT if you look on the Server Status page it says: "registered in past 24 hours 228". That is the number of pc's, so each of those pc's took some of the available units, leaving less for you and I.

At a guess, the project folks are still 'in process' regarding the change over.

Perhaps when the new hardware is fully in place and things are fully cut over, there will be a software change as well, replacing the 'post-active' information and status information with a 'pre-active' information and status transmittal. We can hope anyway.

I figure that sometime in the coming week things will be completed, and sometime AFTER that, information regarding the planned timing for the last week of December and the first week of January will trickle out.

Great to hear the Good Mews Travis! :)
I hope things go as smoothly as you hope they do.
It will be nice getting more units to work on again.

A timely reminder we often forget the thanks amongst the rapid complaints :)

Gets my vote .... Server End is running really smoothly, solid and responsive. Good job all round to all involved ...
