After few months and loads of discussion about future of our project we decide that project will be continued in a bit changed team.

Looks like they have cut all ties with SONM after the recent controversy.

As they seem to have removed the previous posts from their site and people may wonder what had happened I have copied the statements below:

So, apologise to all volunteers but we had lost half year of work here, and I'm afraid than you too

Apologise...

In fact, we lost trust for their intentions as we (after few hours of very difficult discussions) found, that their just use our job to create scam project to collect money from investors.
Currently we discuss future steps what we should make.

So, as we wrote before, we have to apologise all of you and just finish work on this server and be in hope, that you will join us in eventual new project when the all mess finish...

I have signed an agreement, which separates one project from another and transfers my rights on SONM project to another team (under certain conditions, which are not disclosed yet). The job, which was done by Krzysztof Piszczek and Krzysztof Faryna is crucial for DrugDiscovery@home.
Nobody was cancelling our agreement with them regarding DrugDiscovery@home, which was signed and is still in force.
All my duties regarding DrugDiscovery@home and regarding shares of incomes, which Digital BioPharm ltd. will get from SONM are still in force.
I just renegotiated our agreement with CTO of SONM project, who now will lead SONM project. All situation is a very big pain for me as far as I feel somehow responsible for it, but I really have no ideal solution. Any assistance from community can be appreciated.

Dear Community members, project SONM was started by me and Sergey Ponomarev during summer 2016. The initial idea of the project was to build it on BOINC platform and develop P2P BOINC technology. Therefore Krzysztof Piszczek and Krzysztof Faryna were invited to make both DrugDiscovery@home and SONM project. DrugDiscovery@home was supposed to be a prototype for SONM project. However, during interaction of our lead developer Krzysztof Piszczek and SONM CTO Sergey Ponomarev different views on technology have started to arise. Sergey Ponomarev has decided to avoid BOINC usage further. As a CEO I tried to unite the team, rather than identify the issue as soon as possible. That was my mistake. Early stage separation of team into two could be a solution. This has led to current team separation. I am convinced that team of Sergey Ponomarev, Alexey Antonov and other team members (russian part basically) can make a successful ICO and a valuable decentralised general-purpose computing platform SONM. Therefore I have signed an agreement with them, which upgrade our technological map and invite new members in the SONM platform.
Project DrugDiscovery@home exists since 2009. Until now the team of Krzysztof Piszczek and Krzysztof Faryna were the best BOINC administrators team, which was managing the project. However, as a CEO I did a mistake and invited the same team into two different projects, which raised issues with another part of the team in the second project. The second project, where our colleagues from Poland were involved was SONM.
Krzysztof Piszczek and Krzysztof Faryna were mostly involved in DrugDiscovery@home project and therefore are very welcome to proceed with its development. All rights on scripts, related to DrugDiscovery@home project are transferred by Sergey Ponomarev to the project DrugDiscovery@home and its team (Krzysztof Piszczek and Krzysztof Faryna). I am ready and happy to ask Krzysztof Piszczek and Krzysztof Faryna to continue their work on DrugDiscovery@home and ready to transfer to them a leading role in DrugDiscovery@home project instead of me.
All efforts and suggestions from BOINC and Blockchain communities to unite the team and prevent destruction of the projects are welcome

Wow that looks brutal, thanks for the info. I trust the new team, but perhaps we'll have to vet the project to make sure we're discovering new drugs, not "a scam project to collect money from investors." LOL...

The cryptocoins featured will be completely changed in near future but at this moment it isn't in our main scope.

What's up with that, a way to finance the project?

Well as a new user to the Project I have arrived after the Drama... Site looks very stable with lots of work units and easy user registration and team creation. I have loaded three systems up and while the work units are very short in Run time they are plentiful.

As some of you already know, we just started testing of CUDA Gromacs application for Linux and Windows computers. To use it under Linux you should have Gromacs installed (apt-get install gromacs on Debian based systems).

Under Windows you should have Nvidia GPU with CUDA 2.3 capability and AVX256 capable CPU.

As apps are now under tests, only users with test applications enabled will get tasks. Also, ignore estimated running time reported by Manager as is currently set very high by me for testing purposes.

Lots of discussion about AVX in that thread. Good luck!
