I don´t now any informations about the project, but I´ll start an own project soon , only for the goldbachs conjecture up to 10^100. Now testing some data savements, using base 32 and 64; to slow the file size for the higher numbers. (>10^40)

OProject announced they would be down until 10/8/2014, returning with a brand new faster server. However that date format is ambiguous: since August 10 has come and gone, evidently OProject will be down until October 8 2014.

08-OCT-2014 came and went without news, the a couple weeks later the server went down and currently nothing resides at the URL. If anyone has any news it would be nice to know.

Scouring the web for anything relating to the project in any of its incarnations (they've changed URLs once or twice I believe) certainly seem to support that claim.

Shame, really. There was no indication of extended downtime, which is unfortunately not unheard of in the BOINC world. What's odd is that OProject had a fairly diverse set of applications, was pretty transparent with regards to their development process(es) and application(s), and their admins weren't the silent, practically reclusive types found at the kind of poorly-run projects that get too big for their britches - running out of funding, not making enough work, not communicating re: project updates etc - and shut down.

At least, to the best of my knowledge/memory, OProject was running just fine until they announced an impending upgrade, after which point (as indicated in several posts above) they seem to have dropped off the grid entirely.

Even stranger considering Lukasz appears to have renewed registration on the oproject.info domain in mid-November of last year. I assume that's a promising sign, but the silence is a bit deafening at this point.

It's a dead project...

Anybody's guess but it WAS run/mangled by the same one who ran Beal @Home which is also D.O.A ... NO communications from project Admins for many months and the web page for Beal@home has been taken over by spammers for supposedly "a chess game".

More can be read at the BoincStats.com forums Index :: The Projects :: O Project. Any ideas what has happened to it?
