In the boinc server a bootstrap style is currently under development. For test purposes I deployed it here in yafu, just to see how it looks like.

No unreserved Aliquot Sequence below size 133 anymore

I reserved all unreserved Aliquot Sequences with size=132 for the project. There is now no unreserved sequence below 133 anymore. We increased many sequences in it's size and some were also terminated.

Much thanks for your contribution!

Scheduled Maintenance Concluded

Hello Everyone,

Thank you all for your patience while the server was updated to allow for work unit bundling.

This update involved a new client and server code. Since our Mac we use for builds died, we do not have a Mac version of the client built. I plan to build one this weekend when I get access to a different Mac computer.

If you notice anything weird with validation, work unit generation, database stability, or client issues, etc. please report it here. I will work over the weekend to get them fixed if they show up.

Happy Crunching,


Single core tasks finished

You may have noticed that there are no single core tasks left in the queue. This is deliberate as part of our aim to simplify things by having a single app which is multicore only.

We know that there are people who like to run only single-core WU but it is possible to run multicore WU in a single-core mode through the use of app_config.xml. (set

This is not a perfect solution so if there are serious objections to deprecating the single core app we can do some tricks to send multicore WU to the single core app which will then run in single-core mode. Please let us know what you think.

SSL Certificate Replace (again)

So it turns out that the SSL provider I was using was bought by another company that has had issues to the point where many/most of the browser vendors stopped supporting their certificates. So.... the Collatz project is now using a new SSL certificate. Lets hope the new one causes fewer headaches for everyone. Thanks to fractal for pointing out the specific issue, and thanks to everyone else who was also trying to help troubleshooting. I really appreciate it.

Scheduled Maintenance Friday November 11th

Hi Everyone,

The server will be down for scheduled maintenance on Friday while we update the server and client to allow for work unit bundling. The code for this update is written and currently undergoing testing. This should allow for longer work unit times while maintaining fast crunching for single likelihood values. The result should be lower traffic on the database providing for more stability on the server while providing more work units for everyone.

I apologize for the issues we have been having recently with work unit availability and server stability. Hopefully this will be a permanent solution. If you have any questions please let me know.


Back to work!

After vacation time, we are getting back to work! There are some significant
goals in front of the U@H and we still count on your help!

First of all, we are continuing our cooperation with Cambridge and Ferrara.
Scientist are becoming more and more aware of the project and appreciate the
help in obtaining necessary data. The manuscript about ULXs should be published
in the nearest future. We think the conclusions will bring about a vivid
discussion. We are also preparing large-scale simulations for the BHspin
application which will provide valuable predictions of gravitational waves for
the next LIGO runs.

From the technical point of view, we are going to make several improvements this
year. An additional server for processing data will be installed. Additionally,
applications will be adapted for the GPU computing. We also plan to establish a
database with public access which will store the results and possibly provide
some visualisation tools.

As always, we will keep you informed on the progress and your feedback will
still be highly appreciated!

U@H team


Po wakacjach wracamy do pracy! Przed U@H wiele wyzwań i nadal liczymy na Waszą
pomoc! Przede wszystkim nadal kontynuujemy współpracę z Cambridge i Ferrarą.
Naukowcy coraz częściej słyszą o projekcie i doceniają pomoc w pozyskiwaniu
danych. Praca dotycząca ULXów zostanie wkrótce opublikowana. Sądzimy, że wnioski
wywołają żywą dyskusję. Przygotowujemy również wielkoskalowe symulacje na
aplikację BHspin. Dostarczy ona ważnych prognoz na temat fal grawitacyjnych
dla kolejnych obserwacji LIGO.

Od strony technicznej, dokonamy w tym roku kilku ulepszeń. Zainstalujemy
dodatkowy serwer do przetwarzania danych. Ponadto dostosujemy aplikacje do
obliczeń na GPU. Planujemy również stworzyć bazę danych z dostępem publicznym,
która będzie służyła przechowywaniu wyników i być może dostarczy również
narzędzi do ich wizualizacji.

Jak zawsze będziemy Was informować o postępach i bardzo cenić Wasze uwagi!
