Krembil should change its motto from "relentless" to "hopeless".

"QA testing has finally successfully finished and all the bugs have been resolved. Production environment is being tested right now. Considering the unexpected issues we ran into with the QA system, we prefer to test it a couple of days further. The website and forum are ready to be relaunched, the production environment is successfully querying BOINC locally and we are going to restart BOINC slowly in the next few days. We will provide further details early next week."

They announced on Facebook that there will be another delay of a week (or more?)

When they shut down they had ~ 30k active users. Will be interesting to see how many come back.

Getting close to two weeks since their last update. They have been down for almost a month longer than they originally estimated.

I miss crunching the Microbiome Immunity Project. I'm glad they got funding to allow alternative crunching

More BS.

"Dear Volunteers, we have been working hard to enable the restart of the WCG. As anyone who has experienced this journey with us knows, it has been a long and rocky road. Unfortunately, our testing uncovered unforeseen bugs and prevented us from discussing much of our day-to-day work with you. In this update, we wish to give some insight into some of the technical difficulties and new methods of communication we have been working on.

At the moment, our top priority is fixing bugs on the production website, currently operational in our private cloud environment. Issues we must resolve before providing access to the website mainly involve security checks, updates to our backend database, certificates, performance monitoring and many smaller technical issues.

To clarify, while the existing users would see all their past contributions and stats, forums, and web content, we are facing issues with the account registration process for new volunteers. By our best estimate, this issue and others related to user experience on the WCG website should be fixed by early next week.

We are also fixing some certificate issues with SendGrid, the service we use for sending emails to all of our active volunteers. The benefits include receiving web articles (like this one) in the form of emails directly in your inbox and the option to opt in or out of specific updates.

On the topic of communication, we are happy to announce that our team expanded - and we have a communications intern for the next 16 months. We are preparing a new platform for communications - Instagram, and started planning new audio-visual material for our YouTube channel. The video making process had to take a backseat during the migration process but we are gearing up to change this, once all of our technical difficulties have been solved.

We would like to thank you for being patient with the time it has been taking to fully prepare the system for restarting WCG. We are working hard to ensure that the result is well worth the wait.

The World Community Grid TEAM - Together Everyone Accomplishes More"

Mini update from the forums...

https://www.worldcommunitygrid.org/forums/wcg/viewthread_thread,44131_offset,0

Also, some WUs were released yesterday (6 July). LOTS of people got excited, but it was only for testing. I'm leaving WCG open for now and see what happens.

I received a couple of WU from WCG. Didn't take long to crunch and run out again. They were for COVID, didn't get any other tasks
Hopefully it ramps up again shortly
