I'm so worried. What should I do?

That is up to you.

Some people use same login/username and password information for almost everything on the internet to make it easy to remember.

I am not worried because my BOINC info is not used elsewhere on the internet.

Can we please continue this chat outside the Project Outages thread? It's probably interesting information and all, but it has nothing to do in this thread.

It seems that MilkyWay has been down for about an hour. I can't contact the website, or get new work.

MilkyWay is having problems again. I can't get to the website.
I can get CPU work (N-Body), but the GPU work (Separations) is very limited; a few come in, but not enough.

Don't know if already mentioned but I can't find it - WUProp@Home seems to be shut down permanently.

Homepage says:

Project end
I have no time to manage correctly the project.
So the work generation has been stopped and the project will be offline in a few days. 8 Mar 2022, 5:47:55 UTC

Seems S├ębastien will keep WUProp going, which is great news (see https://boinc.berkeley.edu/forum_thread.php?id=14593&postid=107512#107512).

Any news on WCG?
They originally said toward the latter part of April, but I don't remember the date. It could change in any case.

Yes but there was an update I can no longer find, all the transition is done, final testing "can start" as of a week ago.


The original date thrown up was Apr 22. But like all projects communications could be improved.

No surprise, but I figured I'd post that BOTH iThena projects have been unreachable for over 27 hours so far.

Project goes walkabout quite frequently for several hours and then return for more uptime, rinse and repeat over and over.

Project Admin rarely communicate with users either via forums or through Twitter.

WCG delayed until May 9th, 2022 - Facebook, Twitter
~~~
"With a heavy heart we must announce to volunteers our intent to delay restarting the WCG until May 9th, 2022. Several issues discovered in our production environment remain unresolved, making it impossible to meet the April 22, 2022 deadline at this time.

Unexpected issues continue to delay the full validation of the QA environment, meaning there is no path yet to a responsible restart of the Production system even if all outstanding issues were resolved today. Several obstacles that proved difficult to resolve due to inexperience with specific components in the WCG software stack, contribute to our need for yet more time to bring the Grid back online.

Notably, the website build broke due to a dependency that brought React version 18.0.2 into the build, whereas the site was developed against React version 17. The lack of experience with React and modern web development practices within our team resulted in what now seems a simple fix, pinning React to the previously working version 17 for all dependencies that permitted a change in major versions when resolving required packages at build time. Volunteers may have noticed this issue, as it coincided with a long silence at www.worldcommunitygrid.org, which could not be updated. In addition, we overlooked a misconfiguration in the messaging/queueing middleware (IBM MQ), and a missing root certificate took far too long to discover as the reason Apache could not talk to IBM Websphere. The last few public IPs to be assigned were not routable due to a misconfigured VLAN. While these issues were all resolved, we now need more time to ensure there are no more surprises.

As a rule, this level of detail should be omitted from updates and has been omitted from previous updates. From our perspective, the specifics of the technical obstacles that hinder us are immaterial, as what we owe to volunteers is a working backend for the World Community Grid. The Grid is far too valuable to let go - and despite challenges, we are committed to supporting open science on the Grid. Given the already overlong timeframe of the migration, and to assuage concerns as to whether we are progressing towards the goal at all, we thought to make an exception given that we are asking for your patience just a while longer before we are fully ready to restart the WCG. We must and we will succeed.

Thank you to all who have contributed feedback and words of encouragement during the downtime. We do see your posts even if we cannot always reply at this stage. Your understanding and patience is truly appreciated. We will prepare a proper team introduction and answer the questions and address the comments once the Grid is back on.

WCG Tech team"
