From there homepage:

January 8, 2007
Our labstaff is going to be taking down milkyway for awhile to run some tests to see why it's been crashing so frequently. Hopefully it will be back soon running smoothly.

I don't think MilkyWay will win the LTP vote. I think Malaria and Enigma may have to fight it out...

Well MilkyWay appears to be down and out at the moment. Just as well it didn't become the POTM for March.

Yoyo seems to be having issues as well right now. Every time I try to connect to it, it says the server is " down for maintenance ".

Milkyway is back up.

They've been pretty good for a month or so, but just this week they have had two crashes that have lasted several hours each.

May be back but getting work is another issue.

Can't get anything at the moment. Probably have to wait for the backlog to clear...

I don't think it's a backlog per se, I think they are trying to update the science app with a new version and also working on the backend a little (reducing the time between connection attempts, working on the stats export stuff, etc).

Also, someone left the project a little while back and didn't give anyone else "write" rights to the program file folder, so they are having a teensy bit of trouble getting the new app in place. It was supposed to have been brought out last Wednesday, which is when they found the rights issue. :smt023

I wouldn't expect to see any WUs from there until tomorrow afternoon (US time) at the earliest.

Actually I managed to get some units (about a dozen) last night Aus time.

So there may be some there. But I had trouble just getting them.

MilkyWay appears to online now.

They have updated the app to verision 1.17. On Windows there appears to be a problem with the progress bar / stats. Currently it stays at 0% until the unit is finished. They are working on fixing it and believe verision 1.18 will be out soon.

I also note that the units are taking about half the time to complete using 1.17 when compared against 1.13 on my laptop but are still worth the same amount of credit.

MilkyWay has been stable for almost a week now (IIRC). No crashes, no major WU shortages, etc.

MilkyWy seems to be down at the moment. Less than a day after I started up there again.

So I have switched to Spinhenge so I can have some work to do.

Boy. MilkyWay seems to REALLY like this computer.

Since the 24th of April ( when I started running the project ) through today...I have gotten 8051 Credits with a RAC of 456.

Ten days worth. I should be getting that laptop from Bucky in the next week or so. When I do...I figure I will throw whichever machine is faster on MilkyWay...and the other will run the POTM.

Hey KM,

Check you rear vision mirror. You might see the Prometheus and me coming up and catching you pretty fast.

I know. I know...lol

I am taking what I can get right now. Laptop to come is a 2. something GHZ Pentium....and as soon as the " stimulus " check comes in...I'll have a quad. Maybe then I can keep up with some of you guys....lol

But then again...I am staying pretty close ( relatively ) to A/C...so that makes me feel a bit better... :smt023

But to overtake you I would need work from their sever. No work coming out so I guess I have to wait longer before I try to pass you...

They actually took WU production offline to let the assimilator backlog clear quickly.

Well I'm starting to get back to chasing down KM.

However while I was waiting for work I allowed some units from ABC. Three of the four have cleared just waiting on the fourth to finish and then I'll be back to full running at MilkyWay.

Well..I won't say this too loudly because Bucky can sometimes be kinda unreliable....but as it stands at the moment.....you have about a week to pass me Gavin.

He's supposedly going to have the laptop done this weekend, and next weekend he'll be bringing it to me and installing my router. :smt023
