Distributed Data Mining is shutting down ...

Dear ddm users,

we had a good run during the last years and the computing power which you provided enabled many researchers to achieve there scientific goals.

Unfortunately, I wasn't able to invest as much time as I wanted into maintaining the ddm project and although the BOINC client was working fine most of the time, the page had more and more problems which were not addressed properly. I was thinking about shuting down the project many times but there was never the right moment.

Recently, this changed when a critical vulnerability of the Drupal content management system was publicly announced. Since the ddm website was running an old version of Drupal, no fix is available for this issue. As a consequence, I took the website down. There are no indications that the vulnerability was exploited. The actual BOINC server is running on a different machine and would not have been effected anyway.

I had the choice between (1) updating to the latest Drupal version including the time consuming re-integration of all the BOINC features and (2) shutting down the project for good. I decided that this is the right moment to let it come to an end. I simply do not have the time to operate the project in the way that you would deserve.

From now on, no new workunits will be generated. The remaining units will be distributed to the BOINC clients and the incomming results will be processed as usuall. The BOINC statistics which are frequently crawled by multiple websites will stay online for a while, so that your credits won't be lost.

Thank you for your understanding and all your support during the last years.
Best regards,

Haha, yay, mini aa, rah, rah, rah. Cheer!

@JugNut Well with nbn™, sometimes delay can be better in the long run, even if it doesn't seem so at the time. Don't want to get your hopes up unnecessarily but although your address shows as planned for FTTN on nbn™ maps, Mr Mac's map shows you as FTTC (FTTdP). As you are probably aware, FTTC although not FTTP is still much better than being stuck on FTTN, which suffers greatly in many cases from poor speed and unreliability due to using long runs of old copper wiring.

Plus FTTN is not upgradeable and must be replaced, whereas an FTTC upgrade to either or FTTP is relatively easier. It's even possible the newer capable FTTC DPUs (in your pit) may be being installed by the time they finally get to your street. If so, in theory speeds would be available immediately. The NCD (modem/reverse power box in house) is already capable apparently.

The nbn™ maps are often out of date and were reportedly due for an update on 18th April, but it hasn't happened so far today, so currently nobody knows when they will update. Yes, just updated now, see edit below.

There was absolutely no valid technical or business case for using the end of life copper telephony network in Australia as the basis for a national data network in 2013. Although reported rarely, if ever, it is well known by anyone with any unbiased networking knowledge that FTTN was only employed in Australia due to corruption.

Edit: nbn™ map has just updated, as predicted by Mr Mac's map your address has changed from FTTN to FTTC. Still a few more years to wait unfortunately:

Planned | nbn™ Fibre to the curb (FTTC)
Planned availability: Jan-Jun 2020*
The rollout of the nbn™ is being planned in this area.

Yea if we can keep up something close this pace we should be moving up soon enough  Thumbs Up

@ Kashi: Yea i'm still on ADSL2 with Telstra.  I've had an awful lot  of issuses over the past 6 months, just when I think they've got all the bugs finally sorted out a new one appears. It's never ending.

Even though i'm in the middle of sydney the NBN seems to be in all suburbs except ours. On the NBN rollout map our suburb looks like a NBN free island? For some reason it's not even slated to start for another 2 years. Faint

By the time it finally gets installed 5G will out and if the pricing & speed is right I may not even need NBN.

PS: Hmm come to think of it perhaps TPG was leasing from telstra back then? LOL
