Hey Everyone,

I have been informed by Keith that there is a new version of the BOINC client which fixes the truncated stderr.txt file issue. This would because it was possible for BOINC finish to be called before a program has finished writing to the stderr.txt file. The fix is available in BOINC version 7.6.6 and should prevent the ~3% validation error rate both our project and Seti@home have been seeing. If you have any questions please let me know here.

You can find the download for the new version here.

I have tried to download the newer BOINC version 3 times, each time, it failed with a generic failure message. I guess it will sort itself out after a while, I had not seen the problem anyway, so not a critical issue.

Berkeley is having their usual down times and downloads are difficult, give it a day or so and they should be back up again.

Actually they are changing internet providers.

SETI@home Network Outage (August 17-18)
Due to network and DNS upgrades/changes we will be shutting down the projects tonight (August 17th) and we will be offline until the next morning. 18 Aug 2015, 3:46:32 UTC


This affects the BOINC site as well.
