    Hi, was wondering if anyone can access the seti home page and all the rest as it seems to be down?

    thanks

    nope, it's borked :(

    oh well, perhaps dunc's new server tried to get it's cache downloaded and brought the network to a standstill?

    it could be something like that (dated 02 March 2001) but I thought that they'd removed the dependency on the campus network recently and got direct ISP lines set up?

    Those 'direct lines' end up going under a waterway. Copper theives with scuba gear could be interesting to watch. :)

    "Outage Notice

    Today (Tuesday) around 17:30 UTC

    we'll have a short outage to reconfigure our server closet.
    The data servers will be offline during this time.
    The outage will last 3-4 hours."

    Seems they are back up partially..

    these guys are such pros :eek:

    didn't the same thing happen a few years ago when they swapped server rooms?

    I havent seen any real issues with my clients, the server could berunnign low on units by now I guess

    EDIT:

    that's it I have a 4 unit stach on the server and then it's over to predictor.... Or it would be if predictor had any work. Aparently (according to the messages) There was work but it is commited to other platforms whatever that means?

    Let's hope that the guys in sunny California figure out what's up with there DB soon.

    Yeah predictor has been pretty sucky for a while too, that "other platforms" message is a long running problem even when there's a ton of work to do.

    I've moved over to rosetta as a secondary project, similar goals.

    right then I'm off to add ANOTHER project :(

    Rosetta sounds good to me, I assume there is an OcUK team as always?

    EDIT: It seems to have sorted itself out and has stopped crunching it's SETI units and is now 77% of the way through two predictor units :D I might add rosetta as well

    Thats just their usual outage for backups. I haven't run out of WU's for ages now. Just set your preferences to a couple of days and you should have enough to get through all but the most tragic of outages.

    I do on the server boss but my laptop suffers from both left in the office (not on) and left in the boot of the car syndrome quite badly so I leave it at a small stash to prevent out of date issues. I have to say since leaving BOINK / SETI for folding last year after all the outages I've been very impressed with it's stability this time round. I guess I should change my location quite soon :eek:


    in other news I can't see your sig image

    Sound's like a good plan to me, I guess we should make it a OcUK DC Projects general invite. I'm sure there are some more of us nearby here somewhere. Unfortunately my calendar is busy every weekend from now till August so it'll have to be a weekday evening.

    Where's good for you, I'm guessing you get the train into town every day?

    And I still can't see your sig image :eek:

    EDIT: I'll catch you on MSN

    Came home today and saw my CPU temp being 21C and thought 'oh no, I forgot to restart Seti last night' but then saw it was running and had no units :(
