Message 1993 - Posted: 27 Apr 2011, 23:40:54 UTC

The server is back up after it's longest outage. Unfortunately I had no money to pay the hosting bills so after a while my account got disabled and the server became unreachable.

I also had hardware problems with the local part of the server, as a result minor part of the database was recovered after critical failure, it's not yet entirely fixed so most probably validator will mark some of the results as invalid. Since it's already late night here, I'll fix that tomorrow, together with the WUs marked as timeouts.
It's also possible that I'll be changing the server location, I'll post more info tomorrow.

Glad to have you back, I was wondering if you would be back. I had just finished a long work unit and had only about 150 byte result to send back to you. I had about 50 minutes of attempting to return that result. May I ask who you are (all I see are your initials) and where you are located, we have been having a lot of bad weather flooding and tornado's here in the United States. That has not affected us here in San Diego CA. I remember very well our version which looked a lot like the German Enigma machine. We were still using ours in 1981 when I got off my last ship, I than retired from the Navy in 84. I was a Cyrpto-Tech and was also a Shipboard Tempest Inspector at my last command.

Time to activate donations.php, so we can help out in other ways than just through hardware, TJM?

hi!

you can write to some vps hosters and ask for exchange hosting to advertising.

Ditto to the person that was saying that donations.php needs to be opened up to help offset hosting expenses. I'd give $10 US per month (and, yes, you can quote me and/or hold me to that).

It's very nice to have this project (almost?) online again. I've looked forward to it :)

But ... I'm not getting any work units? Is this intentional - or is it just me?
Would love to be told that it's a known problem and about to be fixed ;)


Sincerely,
Charmeleon

Agreed, add the donations.php and I will chuck some cash in the hat.

I can see that I've today received work from this project, so it did turn out to be a temporary/startup problem :-)

For now the server is sponsored by BOINC@Poland member - AiDec.
I'll think about enabling donations in the nearest future, but believe me, here in Poland it may not be as easy as it seems.
