[all] min post credit

Hi All,

Since work is flowing pretty much steadily now, to help better deal with spammers I've set a minimum credit limit to post to 1. If this is going to be an issue (and now you can't post), please send me an email.

Also, to create a team a user will also need to have credit.

Hoping this helps!

[all] cooling failure - potential downtime

I've been informed that the cooling system has gone down in the university datacenter that houses the virtual machine that the Citizen Science Grid runs on. As of now, they're not going to be shutting down the virtual machine, but it's still a potential. I just wanted to get a warning message out to everyone in case the site goes down for a period of time. Our system administrators are working on it and hopefully we don't experience any downtime, but if we do they'll be doing their best to get things back up and running.

[all] travel alert

Just a heads up that I'm currently traveling until February 28th, so I apologize for any slow responses. I'll still be checking in to email and the forums periodically while I'm away, just not as frequently as usual.

[all] Interview with Team Gridcoin

Last Saturday I had the pleasure of chatting with some people from Team Gridcoin, who recorded the session. If you'd like to check it out, here it is!

Looking forward to the next one! I'll try and inform everyone when I'll be joining next if anyone else would like to take part.

[wildlife, climate, dna] continuing hardware issues

Hi All,

Our sys admins are still hard working to come up with a solution. Disk issues might not be resolved until Monday.

[wildlife,dna,climate] hardware issues

Hi All,

There are some issues with the storage mount that CSG uses, so some of the interfaces may not be working while they work to fix it. Hopefully it should be resolved by the end of the day.

[dna,subset_sum] more workunits

Sorry for the long delay here. This semester has been very insane for me -- too overloaded with teaching and other research projects!

DNA@Home should be generating more workunits now, and I hope to have more SubsetSum@Home workunits flowing tonight.

[dna] back up!

Sorry about the slowness here. I came down with probably the worst flu of my life last week and have been digging myself out of the pile of work that showed up while I was in bed.

We had a bit of a bug in the assimilator which caused things to not generate new work. This is fixed (and shouldn't happen again). More work should be generating now.

[dna] new DNA@Home runs up and going

It looks like everything is coming back just fine with the new application versions, so I've started up a batch of fresh runs which will mean a lot of new workunits. Happy crunching!
