Server is now ready to continue operating and there will be more workunits to send. But please be aware that it is still a temporary solution because new server won't by any sooner then on May or June and there still might happen some problems.

What do you need for a permanent solution? Specs?

Thank you for that explanation and cautionary note.

We now know not to expect smooth operation for a while.

But I have to say that people involved in crunching on this project are willing to help.

We have asked numerous times, how can we contribute to finally solving the ongoing problems? Support is available. All you have to do is tell us how.

Universities are strange and byzantine places. If it's anything like mine, getting equipment and/or financial help from random outside agencies, especially individuals, would blow the administrators' minds. Sorting out all the logistics of that would probably take longer than the path that the project is already on. It would certainly cost more in terms of person-hours.

I'm sure the offers are much appreciated, but sometimes things are just more complicated than we'd like them to be.

Radime, nestyď se komunikovat. Když vypneš server, dej vědět proč a kdy to zase pustíš.
Radim, don't hesitate to communicate. When you switch your server off, let us know why and how long it will last.:-)

My status is still suspended. How do I change to active?

Universities ask for contributions all the time. That's how they build their endowments, physical plants and faculty chairs. They solicit funds from large donors and especially alumni. Mine do and sometimes I help them a little.

Does Charles University have an alumni fund? Do any of their faculty, alumni and students participate in Asteroids@Home? Do they know about the project? If not, why not? Why are they not helping their university with this important effort?

Like most A@H participants, I am not an alumnus of Charles University. But I'd be willing to send a monetary contribution to help make the project more robust and sustainable.
