Hey Everyone,

We will be receiving our new server today. This means we may experience a few planned outages over the next couple days as we get it set up and migrate our data. In addition to installing this new hardware, we will also be upgrading the server to the BOINC server version 1.0 that was recently released. As is usual during upgrades, there may be a few hiccups along the way. Please bear with us while we work to make things more stable in the long run.

Thank you all for your continued support.

Best,

Jake

That's awesome news. Hopefully it'll resolve the inaccessible DB issues that occur almost daily.

Todays database unavailable was just about the last straw for me. I tried to post a message about why I was dropping the project, but couldn't because the database was unavailable. The recent invalids is another observed issue. No new tasks set.

I wonder if it is because the server is overloaded, or just unreliable?

Also, I wonder how much computing support they really need at MW. With all of the high-end cards that people are starting to throw at it (and all the CPU cores available), I wonder if we are really needed, even with the new server. If they could give us a progress report of some sort, that would help.

Unable to upload is an almost daily occurance here, it is something you very rarely see at other projects. It is not a new problem, it has been lurching along like this for ages. When the already downloaded tasks are finished, I'm gone.

I see that a new server is to be installed this week, I might leave the project on for a few days and see if this fixes the problems I have seen, If it does, then maybe I'm not gone!
