Badges description change Nové okno
As one of the our crunchers suggest, with new science discoveries we had to change our badges descriptions (visible when you move mouse cursor over it)...

Server maintenance today Nové okno
Dear volunteers,

we are migrating part of server infrastructure today, which will take few hours. In the meantime there might be a lack of workunits to send and the boinc server will be unavailable for an hour or so. We will let you know when the maintenance is over.

BURP is switching to ads Nové okno
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

The first scientific outcome! Nové okno
I have a pleasure to announce that the first article of the Universe@home project is finished! It appeared today on the http://arXiv.org, which is the official place for posting scientific articles. The writing can be found here: http://arxiv.org/pdf/1503.08745.

On behalf of the team I would like to thank all the volunteers who participated in the Universe@home test project. We hope that this is only the beginning and you will still help us in comprehending the Universe.

Shortly, I will provide you with a summary of the work written in the less formal language but meanwhile I encourage you to take a look. Our project is mentioned there a few times. Especially, please note the acknowledgements.

False News Report Nové okno
Over the weekend a false news report from a known source of false news reports reported that we had detected an extraterrestrial signal. Of course, if we had, known sources of real news reports would also be carrying the story.

In other words, no such luck.

Work Units cancelled Nové okno
I had to cancel whole '9' series of work units on server.
Please cancel all WU's with '9' as first number in WU name.

Apologise for inconvenience

27 Mega Prime! Nové okno
On 9 March 2015, 17:49:18, PrimeGrid’s 27121 Prime Search, through PRPNet and in collaboration with the 12121 Search (k=27 sister project), has found the mega prime: 27*2^5213635+1 The prime is 1,569,463 digits long and enters Chris Caldwell's The Largest Known Primes Database ranked 38th overall. The discovery was made by Hiroyuki Okazaki (zunewantan) of Japan using an Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E5-2648L 0 @ 1.80GHz Processor with 64GB RAM, running Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate. This computer took about 5 hours and 5 minutes to complete the primality test using LLR. Hiroyuki is a member of the Aggie The Pew team. For more details, please see the official announcement.

New application tests Nové okno
Hello,

On the server are new application which cannot be send to production stage because of quite high error rate.

I have to send bit bigger set of WU's to find out where the problem is, so please update project in your managers to be sure that you have xray v0.02 on Linux based computers.

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.

Vboxwrapper upgrade to latest version v261.57 (all systems) Nové okno
We have just upgraded to vboxwrapper v261.57 for all BOINC T4T clients (Windows, Linux and Mac).

Please let us know if any problems occur, preferably by posting to this News thread.

When all this is running well, it will allow us finally to lift the restriction to VirtualBox version 4.3.12 that we have had to live with since last summer, particularly for Windows clients. We will make a separate announcement when this is decided.

This morning we have reduced the disk space needed to run the simulation.

The updated disk space is 4.5GB.

Thanks!

New application: Quantum Chemistry Nové okno
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.

Berkeley SETI scientists using new techniques in ET search Nové okno
Prof. Shelley Wright from UC San Diego, working with members of the BSRC team including Dan Werthimer, Andrew Siemion, and Geoff Marcy, successfully achieved first light last weekend on a new instrument to search for pulses of infrared light from extraterrestrial intelligence. This exciting new area of research is highly complementary to our ongoing work using radio telescopes and SETI@home.
