Maintenance breaks... Nové okno
I need to do some maintenance work on server so it will be stopped and started few times in next 2-3 days.

Also I will send some test WU's which can stop/breaks incidentally, don't worry about it please, it will be small quantity...

New Beta app for AMD GPUs Nové okno
Hi, If you've an AMD graphics card, please subscribe to beta applications and see if you get the "amdmd" application. For now, it's just a place-holder, but this'll change soon. Matt

Milestone Nové okno
We have reached a nice milestone.

Last night, thanks to the hard work of your computers we have achieved a milestone as more than 100,000 WU was processed within last 24 hours.

By the way, overall power supplied by you has reached 8 TFlops and going up :)

POEM++ 2.17 Released Nové okno
The new POEM@HOME version is now live. Both CPU and OpenCL versions have been updated.
In combination with the release, we also started three new types of GPU work units. Special thanks go to Vladimir Tankovich, whose GPU code made this possible.
Important: If you configured your client to run multiple GPU jobs on a single ATI card, jobs may fail. We are still investigating in this case. If you get this error, please adjust your settings to only run one POEM job per GPU in the meantime.

Die neue POEM@HOME Version ist jetzt verfügbar, sowohl in CPU-, als auch OpenCL-Version.
In diesem Zusammenhang haben wir drei neue Arten von GPU Work Units gestartet. Besonderer Dank geht an Vladimir Tankovich, dessen GPU code das erst möglich gemacht hat.
Wichtig: Auf Rechnern, die dazu konfiguriert wurden mehrere GPU Jobs auf einer einzelnen ATI Grafikkarte laufen zu lassen, kann es zu Fehlern kommen. Wir suchen immernoch nach der Ursache dafür. Wenn der Fehler auftritt, hilft in der Zwischenzeit nur eine Beschränkung auf jeweils einen POEM Job pro GPU mittels Konfigurationsdatei.

We just launched 400 very long WU (they will take about 24h in a 780GTX) named VERYLONG_CXCL12_confAna whose results we need as soon as possible (we are in a hurry). They come with a credit+bonus of 400K. Please, if you don't have a good graphic card, reject them. For the brave ones, take it as a challenge and see you on the performance tab ;)

RiojaScience's end? Nové okno
Hi all: Bad news, It is hard to say that we stop riojascience project. Triqct project is end and we are not able to launch a non-beta version of VENUS or others programs. This last is due to technical, economical, and personal issues: riojascience's team is not big and smart enough to give a quality service and feed the hungry volunteers. However, the interrogation mark at the subject means that we hope that it is a temporally (?) shutdown. Maybe in the future riojascience comes back. Only to say thanks all of you ... Best, riojascience's team.

A new GPUGRID initiative Nové okno
Crunching is a creative and challenging way of learning about the behavior of our computers and improving them while helping the GPUGRID team to understand a bit more the mystery of the world we live in and the diseases that affect not only us, but also the people we love. The GPUGRID team couldn’t be more satisfied and proud of forming part of this noble project, and so we’d like to deeply thank each of the 1000 users that connect to us every day, making us part of their lives and making them part of ours, as a team. Behind each computer, behind each GPU and each WU or forum post, there’s the real protagonist of our story as a community: YOU, the cruncher. At GPUGRID, we are considering the possibility of starting a new campaign to thank the users that contribute with our project by sending them little tokens of gratitude, such as proteins/aminoacid molecules printed by our 3D printer or merchandising such as t-shirts or stickers. We still have to establish the contest rules, but most likely each of the user would have a probability of winning based on their contribution. Once in a while we would like to run a story about the winner, explaining why you crunch, what's the setup of your computer, a small description of yourselves or a picture of you and your token. We believe that it would be a fun and productive experience but before anything we’d like to know your opinion, your suggestions and whether we have your support for this initiative. Let us know!

Issues with a bad payload definition in the past few days Nové okno
Dear volunteers,

in the past few days, most of you have been experiencing difficulties with the massive WU failures. This was caused by one task with 20k WUs, which was badly defined and 80% of the WUs failed. We did not spot this immediately due to a lacking functionality of our monitoring system which still needs to be adapted to BOINC workloads. The corresponding task was aborted yesterday, so the things should be back to normal. In addition, all of us have been traveling and we did not have much time to follow the message boards. We have now assigned a dedicated person who will track the issues, so we hope for a much better response time in the future.

Apologies for the issues you have been experiencing lately, and thank you for your patience and efforts to help us.

TYCHO paper now published in Acta Astronautica! [online / Volume 108] Nové okno
So honored! My TYCHO paper is now published in Acta Astronautica! I did that as my Diploma Thesis at the Institute of Space Systems at the University of Stuttgart and the paper was selected for Acta Astronautica during the International Astronautical Congress 2013 in Beijing. It's a concept study about a communication relays satellite in Earth-Moon Libration point (EML-4) as a permanent infrastructure. So something similar Elon Musk will need for his SpaceX and Google "space internet" ;) You can get it for free until March 5, 2015 -> http://authors.elsevier.com/a/1QN6u_29e7yxw- or here Volume 108, March–April 2015, Pages 156–170

Database Is Back Online Nové okno
During the nightly backup process, the database once again stopped responding and had to be restarted this morning. Rather than bring it back online as I have been doing, I spent the day trying to duplicate the issue, but to no avail. Before bringing it back online, the database tables were optimized and I checked to make sure the database is in sync with the BOINC file system.

ESP Mega Prime! Nové okno
On 6 January 2015, 11:24:47 UTC, PrimeGrid’s Extended Sierpinski Problem Prime Search found the Mega Prime: 161041*2^7107964+1 The prime is 2,139,716 digits long and enters Chris Caldwell's The Largest Known Primes Database ranked 23rd overall. It eliminates k=161401; 11 k's remain in the Extended Sierpinski Problem. The discovery was made by Martin Vanc (vmv) of the Czech Republic using an Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-4440 CPU @ 3.10GHz with 4GB RAM running Microsoft Windows 7. This computer took about 18 hours 9 minutes to complete the primality test using LLR. Martin is a member of the Czech National Team. The prime was verified on 7 January 2015, 00:34:44 UTC, by Stefan Hofacker (shofacker) of Germany using an Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-3930K CPU @ 3.20GHz with 32GB RAM running Microsoft Windows 7 Professional. This computer took about 22 hours and 19 minutes to complete the primality test using LLR. Stefan is a member of the SETI.Germany team. For more details, please see the official announcement.

Hails and Farewells Nové okno
First off, we are sad to announce that Tom has had a great job offer and has recently left the MindModeling development team. However, Tom's love for the project has not changed and will be transitioning to 'volunteer contributor/moderator' status. You may still see him on the forums from time to time.

Tom has been an extremely valued team member: leading efforts on both server-side and client-side programming as well as being our primary support to our volunteer contributors. His presence has been (and will be) greatly missed, but we are excited for Tom in his new job.

All The Best and Happy Crunching Tom!

We would like to welcome and introduce two new members of the MindModeling team: Brandon and Nathan.
Brandon has taken over the responsibility of being primary support to our volunteer contributors, so you'll see him popping up on the news feed and in the forum.
Nathan has taken over a lot of our (internal and external) website design and feature development.

We are very excited to have these two programmers on board!



Thanks to David Vignoni for graphics and inspiration.
