Message 3273 - Posted: 1 Jul 2014, 21:51:42 UTC

Project admins, please let us know when we can expect the project to be back online. Or, if it's still unknown,tell us at least if there's a major problem which will last for a very long time or not. Although, judging by the fact that the project has been down for at least 3 days now, it's fair to assume that there's some serious problem...

Yea I hope it'll be back up soon too, I've got 36 results rdy for u/l which expire 2/7/14 18.34! And then a load more for 3/7/.
They were finished yesterday/day before & were only crunched late because I started another project & BOINC shunted the remaining WUs back. Fortunately I'd already stopped A@H from getting new WUs (stopping A@H for a couple of months or so to crunch R@H).


I have hundreds of results to upload. ;)

I've switch to Enigma@Home for the time being, but will switch back when the project comes back online.

Hey man, just a few then ;), what's the soonest expiry date?

I hope it's back soon - I've got 26 waiting for confirmation and another 30 Ready to Report, not uploaded yet, expiring on 7/8/14. Getting easier to suspect a significant problem.

Hey guys, pls be patient.
Let the Project Admin (Kyong) do his job.

Try other boinc projects, if you don't want your PC(s) to be idle.

Let credits be secondary. Primary: help science.

One thing EVERY project has done so far when it has gone down, and it wasn't a drive failure that was unrecoverable, was to extend the deadline so EVERY unit gets credit when they come back online. Kyong HAS done that in the past, he most likely will again. Obviously something is taking longer then expected, it happens. I personally have a few hundred units waiting to send back, when the project comes back online I expect to get a boatload of credits one day and my rac will SOAR on that day!!

It's not about the credit. Some of us have grown quite attached to Asteroids@Home. It sort of feels a little like our own project... so it's natural that we want to know what is happening.
Yes I'm running MilkyWay@Home now instead, just to do something, but I don't care about other projects very much.

Oh yes, this is so true. And it is some sort of expected human interaction, that the volunteers keep being informed. It's the difference between interactions between computers and humans, the feeling of being part of it.

You would not have liked it when Seti went down for 3 weeks and never said a word to anyone!! MOST projects that go down are NOT very forthcoming about the problems they are having, I have NO IDEA what the problem here is, I am just a user like everyone else. But after crunching since December 1999 I can tell you this is NOT unusual, nor unexpected given that most projects are run on a wing and a prayer. When this project comes back up I will return my gpu's here and resume crunching, until then they are crunching someplace else.

Hey mikey, are you talking about SETI's outage over 10yrs ago when Berkleys pipe was cut? I'm pretty sure they got some sort of word out before they came back up.
.......... have we had this convo before? lol

Err that's a rather sweeping statement!, 1. I/we aren't stopping him doing his job, 2. My, & I bet others PC aren't idle, I'm running LHC & Rosetta when LHC runs out of WUs.

I'm not having a go at Kyong, just saying I hope it's back up before my results expire (which they do according to BOINC in 1/2hr), I'd be disappointed if they do though, but sometimes s**t happens! ;)

Yeah. This is obvious Truth.
Thank You for expressing it so precisely.

As stated previously, deadlines will be extended so don't worry about losing credits for work completed but not yet reported.

Leelan, never post email addresses and other personal information in public as spambots will harvest it.

If you still can go back and edit that out.

The owner has had server problems which are taking a while to fix.

I am really sorry, I didn't expect it to took so long. There was nothing wrong, just had to process too many files and it really is very hard to know when it is done. I thought that it won't take more than 2 days but I was wrong. So again, there shouldn't be so long maintenance for a longer time.

WHAT??? Something unpredictable happened during computer maintenance??? AUGH! Nothing like that has EVER happened to me!

...except for those sixteen or seventeen thousand times that it did, but that was over a whole 35-year career in IT, so... lemme see now... Yeah! That's only a few hundred times a year! So this interminable wait is simply inexcusable!

(Ahhh. I feel much better now.)

It's up and running again :) Yeeey! :)

Do these maintenances have something to do with processing results in order to find out which have done some useful computation? Does this maintenance mean that we can expect an update of the scientific results page soon?

Thx!

If pc's ran smoothly all the time there would be no need for pc geeks, or IT folks, then where would we all be? NO PC'S is where!!! My refrigerator broke one time, they replaced a circuit board and it is okay again, IT folks stuff!!

My last job was as a first line IT guy, they would call me first and I would make sure everything was plugged in and nothing the user did was causing the problems. I ended up saving over ten IT professional phone calls per day over the 1600 pc's I kept track of. Obviously I couldn't fix everything, but you would be surprised how non techy some people are!!! I REALLY had a Supervisor using HER FOOT to control the mouse, seems she was a professional seamstress in her off time and it worked for her. NO ONE ever showed her how to use a pc and she sat in an office with a closed door all day long. She did what worked for her, I showed her how to use her hand instead and I was her BFF until she retired one year later!!

Welcome back, ALL of my pc's have returned all their completed units and gotten new units and are already returning them. My credit took a BIG jump as expected, THANKS Kyong!!!
