Yeh - it's a bugger.

I had Milky, and GenLife as backups to Einstein - and they all fell over today.

All back up now though  :dance:

Project News: Updating Server Daemons Tonight

Tuesday, 21 July 2009 10:00 AM

I'll be updating the server daemons tonight with better result verification and updated particle swarm and genetic searches.  There will probably be some downtime while I get everything up and running correctly.  We've also been examining some issues we're having with our fitness calculation, so we'll be releasing a new application and its code to deal with that as well.  It also seems we're having some excessive credit issues again so things are going to have to be tweaked (have fun flaming our forums :P).

Project News: Server Crash

Wednesday, 29 July 2009 10:00 AM

Our database crashed or got corrupted this morning and it's looking we lost a lot of user accounts and credits.  For now if you lost your account just make a new one.  We're looking into this right now and are trying to restore all that we can.--Travis

Looks like labstaff is in the process of restoring the lost data right now.  Hopefully we didn't lose too much after the restore is done.

Project News: Updated User Stats

Wednesday, 29 July 2009 10:00 AM

Since some users are still reporting missing credit, I've re-run the stats export which should hopefully update their credit to what it should be after the restore.  This might take a little while to show up correctly, but let me know if this has fixed your missing credit, if you're still missing credit.  The only credit that you should be missing would be from 4am this morning til around 2pm this afternoon.

Not officially reported yet but I just noticed the following has recently appeared as a MilkyWay application:

Linux running on an AMD x86_64 or Intel EM64T CPU     0.19 (cuda)     22 Aug 2009 0:25:54 UTC

Edit: Oops didn't realise this has already been reported on the forum by one of the staff and is said to be giving segfault errors.
