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.

Thanks for getting out in front of this and giving us an immediate heads up.

....http://csgrid.org/csg/top_hosts.php soon will start some of "fun" ...
As i see most computers have only 32 gigabytes of memory so soon when they will finnish old work and "suck" the new 0.19 application ram killer ))). starts most machines connected to this project to fail and be "dysfunctional" becouse the lack of ram . ..
Now need aprx. 1,5 gb per core..

Or better implement feature like amicable number actually have
↑ You can set CPU core limits and fine-tune GPU here ↑ in your pref.
or BEst if you can quickly set - cores per project on every computer/host .. in "your" settings on project page . to avoid that waste of work

[all] cooling failure - potential................... downtime 22 Mar 2017, 20:57:03 UTC

Memory killer application is already named/designated as a heat problem )))))) cnn like ))
As I have foretold: ALL TOP HOST NOW FALLING BUT NOT FOR "heat problem" but lack off proff in admit own mistakes

I'm working on a solution where volunteers will be able to select the type of workunit they can crunch. So machines with not much RAM can work on the MNIST workunits (which require ~500MB RAM) and others can work on the CIFAR workunits (which require ~1.5GB RAM). I'll probably be giving bonus credit to the CIFAR workunits due to the extra requirements.
