Or of course more sensibly it could be moved to the side of the road to be worked on.

It hasn't been blocking the road, it's been in the garage all this time. :)

If your car was blocking the road for three months a la CPDN - your car would have long been towed off the road and thrown into a junkyard. As CPDN should! ;-)
Except it was a bootiful car ;) and only a hundred had been made - and when I needed to sell it a year or so later, I was offered considerably more than I'd paid for it, sight unseen (even though I'd admitted it wouldn't start and hadn't been driven for months) and I've never seen a car more lovingly ensconced onto a transporter ... no... I haven't :)

And anyway... I'd like to join the CPDN project, and I'm not sure I want it to be in a junkyard :)

Tell that to Seti, who bring the whole project down every Tuesday for a full system backup.
Tell that to Einstein, who regularly bring everything down for a full system backup.
Tell that to WCG, who regularly bring everything down for a full system backup.
There's probably other projects who do it. And especially if you have no slave server ready, in case anything goes wrong, best bring everything down.

I still haven't seen you post on their forums during the time they were up, with neither of your accounts. So just continuing your trolling here, ey?

May I ask that you stop with the attacks (again)?

I must say, in my last post before this one I baited you. My apologies for that.
However, the way you talked back wasn't very nice. I'm giving you an official warning for that. I only warn once. The next time, without warning, your posting abilities will be revoked for whatever time I or another moderator finds necessary. Please remain civil in all your answers, and if you cannot, then please find another forums where they can tolerate your outbursts and choice of language.

And there are now just short of 10K tasks showing on the server status. I have just downloaded 3 of a new batch.

Down again?
Yes. It was another planned and scheduled outage to take a database backup.

Edit - backup is now complete and project should be back online.

For the people with the problem that on the "get password" link they don't get a new temporary login link sent:

Hi Richard -- Am I missing where/when these planned outages are announced?

There's a pair of posts further down this thread, at 12th and 13th July.

I don't know where or when there's been other posts. Too much happening to remember.

(It will be every Thursday.)

Perhaps if I try to remember to post in the cpdn News section/thread?

edit
And a reminder about this latest downtime was in the New work thread on cpdn.

edit 2

There's now a post about this in the cpdn News section.

Posted at 13:14 UK time today:

We will be taking the project offline today at 13:00 (UK time) in order to take a database backup.

(Edit - to be fair, Andy sent it out 30 minutes before the outage started, but it spent 45 minutes stuck in the Oxford University email handling system)

The database is back up at 15:24 UK time. That gives us a reasonable benchmark of 2 hours 30 minutes for future outages.

It's Thursday, so they're down for a backup again. They really ought to borrow SETI's standing outage script!
