I had the same reaction first.

And I'm happy about the good news . . .

Well I looked here

https://asteroidsathome.net/project.html

And saw this dated 02/12/21

Project Asteroids@home
Server status - offline
Update - 02-12-2021

Project servers are currently offline for longer period than expected. The main reason is that waiting for a new server took longer than expected. We finally have a new server but it will still take some time to start the project again. The new server will be at a different location than old servers are, all the project data have to be transferred there and BOINC server must be upgraded to the latest version before running up again. The project was running on three servers which two of them crashed. BOINC project data was using those two bad servers, non-BOINC project data was on the third server. New server will be running BOINC project data from both bad servers.

I am sorry I didn't post any news earlier. If needed I will post additional information here. I suppose that the project will be ready to continue by the end of month. This website is now running temporary on a Raspberry Pi and will switch to a new server when ready.




Before getting Real excited.... that Server Status update was dated.... 02/21/2021 which was 10 months ago. Obviously the "end of the month" came and went 10 times.

Actually the date is 02/12/2021 not 02/21/2021.

I assumed that as the project is based in Prague which uses dd/mm/yyyy then it is dated the 2nd December 2021. If however it is using the American system of mm/dd/yyyy then yes it is 10 months old

Another good reason that scientific projects should use the full date so there is no misunderstanding.

But it does give us a new base URL for the project instead of a 404 error

Plus, Asteroids@Home no longer shows up in the list of BOINC projects.

That's because it's been temporarily removed. When the project is back I will inform David Anderson of this and he'll put the project link back.
