The server is out of work, for two reasons: the M4 server is out of work, because the awgly keyspace is finished. Also, I was going to run one of the other known unbroken messages while waiting for Stefan Krah to update the M4 server, but unfortunately during the last few hours one of the BOINC server's hard drives failed. Luckily nothing seems to be damaged except one table which contains unimportant log data, but until I'll fully diagnose and fix the problem, I'm taking all the daemons offline. It's also possible that later today I'll shutdown the server to replace the drive.

Has the project finished? I've not been able to download any new tasks for the last couple of days.

Regards
Steve

Nope, just the current batch of workunits is finished.
The next batch(es) should be available this weekend, I need some time to add few things and probably I'll also upgrade the server software in meantime.

There has not been much work recently, and now there seems to be none. Will we get new work soon?

BTW, what is causing all of the negative numbers on the server status page?
[Edit] - Never mind, I just saw Cafe Post about re-sends double counting.

Looks like WU's are ending.

There's 60k in progress and ~40k unsent.
950 WU's was validated at last hour.

So at this rate there's only 4 days of work left on rough estimate..

So?
