URGENT: Accident in workplace
Last night an accident occurred in my office.
A water pipe burst in the wall which resulted in damage to the wall and flooding of the entire office. Fortunately, nothing happened to the main servers <- I have a few other losses that I need to complete.

Unfortunately, this means that today I am forced to turn off and bring all equipment to a safe place to repair the pipe and wall.

I plan to return to the office on Friday or Saturday.
I apologize for this break and I am asking everyone for your understanding.

I will back to you crunchers

During next 3-4 days I am planning to reinstall GoofyxGrid@home CPU to fix stability problem.

Server on destination place
Today I moved project server from my experimental/test desk to destination desk with UPS and dedicated internet connection 300mb/100mb which i have for my servers.
I hope I can forget about him for a while and be chill about his work.

htest_64bits (2.0.0) and new tasks
We have added a new version of the application (v2.0.0 -> in BOINC 20.00).

We have introduced quite large changes in the application.

Unfortunately, it was not possible to eliminate the difference in runtime (Linux vs. Windows) - on the Windows 7 platform the runtime is ~ 3000 seconds. On Linux 32-bit it is ~ 1400-1500 seconds. On Linux 64-bit can be even faster.

The test series has been generated (10k).

We apologize for the waiting time.

We encourage you to download WU!

Thanks all!

Change credits
In next 1-2 hours I will change the way way the project awards points for tasks.
There will be not constant 2 credits per WU because I have to prepare server for longer tasks <- and we don't know exactly time of new WU... could be 10-15 minutes or even 1 hour <- and 2 credits per hour would be not fair

Maintance break
In next 2-4 days I would like to make some maintance break for 1 step:
1. moving boinc server from VPS to physical hardware with SSD <- like gg@h nci
2. resize partition <- acctually disc on vps has 230gb and SSD has 500gb
3. create and start using swap partition on new enviroments <- because propably clonezilla won't move swap from VPS to SSD
4. make some tunning for database and apache2 <- I don't won't use php-mpm pool so it should much easier than on gg@h nci

It will take about 4-5 hours, but like I wrote on http://nci.goofyxgridathome.net/forum_thread.php?id=281#2475 just wait for server is back.
After it it will be time to step 2: NFS mounting, automation scripts ect

Server was crashed
Yes... test server died last night like it supposed to do.
Test server is just on VPS throught NFS so I knew it will die... not that fast but that was matter of time <- the same sittuation I had with NCI.
Diffrences is that I know what to do and I don't need any extra solutions like with NCI <- I just have to go and buy SSD drive and move boinc server to it.
I will try do it to the end of this week.
