Feeder & db_purge servers are still down - this is day #3. Can't get new work and can't upload completed tasks.

We need the Admin to fix this.

My Machine has 4 cores, the keyboard does not stutter. It's going to be a week soon and your server still aint working. Perhaps I should just dump the WU's and dump the project and go elsewhere. It's obvious to me you guys aren't up for the task to keep things running smoothly.

Stop moaning. All projects suffer glitches from time to time.

True, but nearly every project has more than one person able to correct issues and even if not, at least able to communicate and let people know what's going on and when it may be fixed. That rarely happens here.

If I had just one machine running the project, I'd be more patient but I have access to quite a few more resources so I don't want them sitting idle or unable to process if I'm going to make the time to manage and use them for someone else's project.

So I'll moan if I want to. Every hear of "Squeaky wheel gets the grease." Same here - if not, it's time to go elsewhere, which I'd happily do if yours is the attitude of others.

And Kyong had a person, he even tried to fix it, so did Kyong remotely, it's just the problem wasn't fixable by the backup person or by remote. It is now up and running so everyone should be happy again.

I take it you didn't get his joke, what he was referring to is that you posted your previous post Five times!! Please give enough time for your answer to appear before spamming the reply button :P, as you did this time :)

I don't use (and have learned to loathe) Facebook's "Like" button, I don't +1 anything on Google, and I NEVER write "me too" comments, but I do understand why such things might be useful.

You're free to go somewhere else. No one is forcing you to be here, and I have little doubt that some wouldn't mind if you weren't.

As the server gets more and more unstable it looks like a major step is necessary.
Did anyone of the project dev's, admins or whoever is responsible for the system think about a replacement? Out of disc space is something that is very common and could be solved by a number of hard drives.
As a quick solution: is it necessary to keep so many results accessable for us crunchers? If a wu is validatet it no longer makes sense to look at it, these results could be deleted. Should save some GB.

Who are the people behind this project? The main page gives no further names or contacts. Kyong needs headroom to solve his personal problems (best whishes!) and all the weight of running a project lies on his sholders, even during vacation. This is a management problem.

Excellent suggestion to free some disk space by deleting ancient Task records, as in other projects! I don't need to see task records from 7 months ago.

I have ~ 1600 task records in 85 pages. The most recent would suffice for me - e.g., 2 weeks worth.

Alexander, your point is an excellent one and I completely agree with you!

On a bright note, the issues this morning were addressed quickly, so that's good. :)

About the people, we are 3 people in behind of the project but I am the only one who take care of the server. So if there is a problem and I am not here, than it has to wait till I am able to solve a problem which happened while my holiday.
