Message 51323 - Posted: 14 Nov 2013, 16:55:32 UTC

orbit@home is upgrading!

We are upgrading the orbit@home server.

A new version of the system should be online in October/November 2013.

All BOINC processes related to orbit@home are stopped at this time.

With the upgrade, a fresh BOINC system will be installed, and all users will have to re-register in order to continue to contribute to the orbit@home project.

They've had that message up for at least a couple of months now. But here we are 2/3 through November and nothing seems to be happening.

Just bumping the thread so it doesn't autolock.

Now returning to Rip Van Winkle mode.

My previous message was supposed to have this line added:

A new version of the system should be online in early 2014.

Rip Van Winkle is my younger brother by the way...just kidding.

Another thread bump. Now back to hibernation, even as spring approaches (in the northern hemisphere).

I was a volunteer since the first incarnation, before the website layout was switched to a boinc project design. This latest shutdown and re-organization means I will have to sign up yet again. That will be the third time I'll be required to join again. I wish it wasn't necessary and liked the single and double digit user id numbers I had previous times I joined. Even so, I am looking forward to this project finally becoming an active project and plan to run it as soon as I see it has re-launched.

Have you heard anything about when that might be?

I tried emailing the founder and he didn't bother replying so you can only go with what the website says.

Some time this century I expect, unless the founder becomes immortal, then the next millennium is a possibility, ;-)

Any bets that the website text will change to "late 2014" rather than the project actual resuming?

There's a very good chance of that I'm sure. I am not holding my breath. ;-)

Thread bump. No news. Page still says early 2014. Pasquale hasn't even posted any news on his page since Jan. 2.

Their funds have probably dried up. I doubt we'll see this any time soon.

The message on the Orbit home page now says "A new version of the system is in the works, and we expect to bring it online in the 2014-2015 period."

Pasquale tweeted the same last Thursday.

Good, at least he reacted hopefully to the many tweets sent to him on the subject.
