Einstein@Home is down due to a (Uni Hanover) campus-wide power outage. The machines keep running on UPS, but the UPS that powers the network failed. It is unclear when power and operation can be restored, but it should be a matter of hours rather than days.


thanks for coming over here and letting us know Bernd! good luck on the recovery.

Einstein@Home: external power has been restored a few hours ago, but the fuse to the machine room keeps blowing. We're looking for a shortcut or other reason. This will take longer than we hoped for.

Thanks for the update Bernd.

Disconnect all the loads downstream of the fuse and turn one or two back in at time until the fuse blows again.

E@H is back!

The "machine room" covers the basement of a building with a couple of rooms, >100 racks with >2000 computers, two main UPS, several independent cooling systems etc. No chance to do such a thing manually.

First uploads worked, but now no more uploads.
Downloads are working.

WCG have obviously fixed their certificate issue as site is back up and uploads and downloads are happening albeit even more slowly than before presumably due to how the servers are getting hammered with the backlog.

The URL for BOINC@TACC no longer resolves to an IP address. I haven't contacted TACC to see if the project is dead, as I think that is best left to someone officially connected with BOINC.

Any secure connection attempt to Cosmology@home fails -- I have been trying to join the project, but it appears they must be using a self-signed certificate: both BOINC and Firefox refuse to accept it because it can't be verified.

Things are improving, especially transfer speeds. I just got a new project arrive less than 15 minutes ago, all in under 3 minutes.
Oh, and it all arrived without any of those infamous "transient HTTP errors".

I'm not a a desktop PC to verify... most likely, Cosmology's SSL Certificate is EXPIRED. It was expired one day last week when I tried.

Chrome & Mozilla on Android refuses to load website due to insecure SSL connection. Same message as I received on desktop PC's last week.

Yes, it is definitely an insecure connection. The reason I think it is a self-signed certificate is because Firefox reports that it cannot be authenticated. If it were an expired certificate instead, then Firefox would report that.

I have found some more information on the cosmology@home website. Apparently all admins and above have been AWOL since some time in 2020. I'm giving up on the project, at least for now. If it finally does come back to life, I'm sure I'll find out in short order.

I have submitted an email to TACC regarding BOINC@TACC. So far I have received two responses. One was automated and one said that my email concern had been forwarded to the correct people for action.

Ok I received the following update from the TACC in Austin TX

Hello William,

The BOINC@TACC project has been discontinued. The lead of the project has moved to a different institution and we are no longer hosting the research. Thanks.

@Bill,

Please ensure that David A receives a copy of that email. He updated all_projects_list yesterday (#4922) ready for the next release, but TACC is still in the list.

Edit - it's also still listed at Science United.
