More on Cosmology@Home:

This seems pretty mysterious. The disks themselves are fine (both mount OK separately), and the RAID array mounts fine via LiveCD, but the server refuses to mount the RAID array on boot. I'm checking the filesystem right now and will give you an update when it's done.

After the longest fsck I've ever seen, the filesystem was fixed and I was able to get the machine to boot properly. Tomorrow morning, I should have everything back up.

So that's somewhere today that we expect Cosmo to be back up & running.

Well, the site's back up. That must be the first step.
The WUs I completed 4 or 5 days ago are due today, so I wonder if they'll be credited, dropped, cancelled, accepted, deleted, or ignored.
Wait and see !

You can upload them, but not report them yet. The database is still down. Luckily that means that the validator is also not running, so until the database is available again, there should be no problem.

Over the last year or so there has been a lot of projects that have stopped running for some reason or other. Obviously Tanpaku has issues at the minute, but a lot of the time participants don't know if the project, such as orbit, is still active. Even when you look at their websites, you cant tell. Some may simply have reached their natural life span, some may be between batches of work, but many seem to have just stopped without warning. It is not productive to have thousands of computers sitting idle, sometimes for many months on end.

It might be an idea for Boinc to create a senior support site, to help out struggling projects by intervening when necessary to receive data and provide support and advice.

There are pages that link to active projects, but Boinc might want to advance on that.

Project partnering might be an idea. If Boinc matches projects up, and where one fails the other can become active, to receive data, and create more work. Sort of like having 2 DHCP servers in case of failure.

I think skgiven's post should be moved to a thread of its own because the points raised deserve more discussion than they will probably receive here; this thread is really just a list of outages.

My next post will bring this thread to 200 messages. It's quite slow to open now. What about also starting a new #2 thread for project outages?

CPDN main project

One of the upload servers has been down but it's now up and running again.

An extra server has been ordered for CPDN which is good news.

Not for me, beause
Only the first post and the last 55 posts (of the 200 posts in this thread) are displayed.
Click here to also display the remaining posts.

and I believe this is the default and recommended way of displaying threads.

But...
What about also starting a new #2 thread for project outages?

...as this thread is about NEWS, I agree that 200 OLD items during 10 month are worth spawning a new one.
