Title: Project Update - FREEHAL Down
Post by: JugNut on April 09, 2013, 04:18:42 PM
I noticed they had gone down a few days ago, no biggie I thought, happens quite a bit lately. But...

"Server Maintenance
On Sunday, April 7, a database server crash resulted in an unexpected downtime of our servers. We are in contact with our server donors and are trying to find a solution and recover the data. In the meantime, there is unfortunately no way to access Freehal@home in any way. We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause."

Oh well, they were only giving one WU per machine at a time anyway so not many crunchers will be affected, credit wise at least.  With the  recent allegations of cheating by the Admin about a few crunchers,  buggy servers, the seizure of there servers last year and & before that the DOS attacks, it seems they can't get a break.   Pity, it is a great project.  Hopefully will be again.

That's for sure. Hopefully the project will be up and running in a few days.
