We finished one of the storage filesystems and so new work units cannot run until this is fixed. Of course it had to happen today. I am trying to fixing things up but it might take many hours because I am copying a lot of data out. gdf

Typo in yesterday's news article

Unfortunately yesterday's news post was made from a smartphone with severe autocorrect issues, making it seem like BURP had switched to ad-based funding. What we meant to write was of course "Happy 1st of April!"

BURP is switching to ads

For a while now it has been difficult to run the project due to lack of proper funding. After many attempts at finding a reasonable funding model, or a way of commercializing the user base and the content, it was decided that the only way to move forward would be to show ads on some of our pages. To begin with there will only be a few tiny ads on the web pages themselves, they will be almost invisible. We have made changes to the website to make sure that the ads do not draw all the attention; and we are constantly working with the ad-provider to make sure that all advertisements are relevant and high-quality. Later, the plan is to use ads in the web player used for viewing video previews. Finally - depending on how the ads are received during these initial tests - we have the option of injecting and overlaying ads onto the rendered material itself. This works either as a watermark that you almost do not notice or as single-frame subliminal messages that very few people will perceive consciously. Several different extensions of this model have been proposed: 1) Logged in users can pay to temporarily remove the ads for one month 2) Artists can pay to have ads removed on anything relating to their sessions. Whenever a new session is uploaded they will naturally have to pay again. 3) Video ads can be downloaded and displayed as the BOINC screensaver while rendering is in progress 4) We can add bitcoin mining to the clients so that 50% of the farm is used to generate funding at all times

All WUs in the current experiment were generated

In the current experiment all WUs were generated. About 10 day there will be no new WUs, then a new experiment (aimed at searching for new systems of Latin squares) will be started.

В текущем эксперименте были сгенерированы все WU. Примерно 10 дней новых WU не будет, а потом будет запущен новый эксперимент по поиску систем латинских квадратов.

Hey Everyone,

I will be running some simple updates and giving the server a quick reboot later today. Shouldn't cause any issues on you end, but if it does please let me know.

New application: Quantum Chemistry

Hi, I've introduced a new application, called "Quantum Chemistry". We'll be using this to perform preparatory calculations on the small molecules that we simulate in our molecular dynamics simulations. This will help us to improve the quality of our simulations. This app is restricted to Linux hosts with a processor that's SSE4-capable. The first few WUs are failing, no need to report anything here just yet. I'm behind the curtain monitoring everything.

I said it will be 60M WUs but we have some work to do before.

Happy crunching!

Server was restored after disk crash
Source:  SAT@home
jeudi 6 mars 2014 10:20

The server was restored after crash. The reason of the crash was the lack of a disk space (due to large log files). As a result some workunits were created incorrectly. Such workunits were cancelled. If processing of any workunit does not take any CPU resources, please abort it manually. I am sorry for these troubles. Besides all we moved all log files to separate disk partition, so such crashes should not occur in the future.

Сервер проекта восстановлен после сбоя. Причиной был недостаток дискового пространства (вызванный большими размерами файлов с логами). В результате некоторые задания были созданные некорректно. Эти задания были отменены. Если обработка некоторого задания не занимает ресурсы процессора, пожалуйста прервите эту обработку вручную. Извиняюсь за беспокойство. Кроме всего прочего, мы переместили все файлы с логами в отдельный дисковый раздел, поэтому подобные сбои больше не должны повториться.
