taking down the old websites/forums

Due to all the spam accounts being created/etc, I'm going to take down the old project websites for wildlife@home, dna@home and subsetsum@home (so basically everything will be here on citizen science grid), so the old forums are going to go away. I plan to do this by the end of the weekend. I'll be keeping the old databases (so account linking will still be possible), but I really want to get the web pages and accounts cleaned up due to the mass of spam in recent weeks/days. After I'm done the old webpages will redirect to the citizen science grid home page. Let me know if there's any issue with this.

I started a new run 'test_hg19_100fa_2', and removed all the work units and tasks for 'test_hg19_100fa_1' and 'test_hg19_1000fa_1' because they were all erring out. Let me know if this new run is working.

I've also added a custom math challenge to the account creation page, as seems have appeared to have gotten worse since I enabled ReCaptcha (13000 new accounts in the last day?!?). I'm hoping this fixes it. I'm still working on the script to go through and delete these junk accounts.

[dna] two more runs

I've added two more runs for DNA@Home: test_hg19_100fa_1 and test_hg19_1000fa_1, these should take approx 10x and 100x longer than test_hg19_10fa_1. Let me know how they're working!

On 4 October 2014, 22:32:24 UTC, PrimeGrid’s The Riesel Problem project eliminated k=502573 by finding the mega prime: 502573*2^7181987-1 The prime is 2,162,000 digits long and enters Chris Caldwell's The Largest Known Primes Database ranked 20th overall. This is the largest prime found in The Riesel Problem and PrimeGrid's 14th elimination. 50 k's now remain. The discovery was made by Denis Iakovlev (Goliaf-RS) of Russia using an Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-4570 CPU @ 3.20GHz with 8 GB RAM running Windows 7 Professional. This computer took about 19 hours and 40 minutes to complete the primality test using LLR. Denis is a member of the Russia Team. The prime was verified on 5 October 2014, 11:48:03 UTC, by Russell Mathers (Russ) of the United Kingdom using an Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-3960X CPU @ 3.30GHz with 16 GB RAM running Microsoft Windows 7 Professional.

deleting spam accounts

Given the massive amount of spam accounts created recently, I need to write some scripts to go through and delete those spam accounts. It would be impossible to go through by hand and delete thousands of these.

Right now my plan is to delete accounts with no attached computers, no credit (on CSG or any subproject), and no activity at wildlife@home. Anyone see any flaws in this, or anything I should change?

dealing with spam profiles

I've added ReCAPTCHA to account creation on the site, so I'm hoping that this will stop a lot of the spam profile creation. I'm going to go through and try to clean up the mass of recent spam accounts that have been made.

Following up on the announcement to discontinue support for old hardware and the oldest application, here are two graphs showing the normalised throughput of GPUGRID broken down by compute capability and application version. http://www.gpugrid.net/graphs/ The legends are messed up for some reason - the first graph is cc, {1.3, 2.0, 2.1, 3.0, 3.5, 5.0, 5.2 }, the second app version {42, 60, 65} These will update daily.
