CoPilot server upgrade

vLHCathome news - Mon, 04/27/2015 - 15:27
We are about to upgrade our CoPilot servers, which interface all volunteer VM's with our MCPlots server - the source of the jobs and the science behind this project. We hope you will not notice this - it may cause a few lost jobs but should not affect any BOINC tasks. A news update will follow after the upgrade.

Vboxwrapper upgrade to latest version v261.66 (all systems)

vLHCathome news - Wed, 04/15/2015 - 14:57
We have just upgraded to vboxwrapper v261.66 for all BOINC T4T clients (Windows, Linux and Mac).

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

Note that starting with this release snapshots will no longer be used: VM's will be Saved rather than PoweredOff when BOINC suspends or restarts, which avoids losing or repeating some jobs or events.
*** For the moment, it may be necessary to reset the vLHC project to enable this feature ***

Survey from Argentine startup

News of BOINC - Wed, 04/15/2015 - 02:46
I saw this (http://boinc.berkeley.edu/dev/forum_thread.php?id=10217) in my BOINC feed and it looks to be all hype and no substance.
Just a different form of BOINC and I see no added value to it.

That particular thread simply says it's looking for beta testers, and not anything about the "test".
The Google-doc the link in the OP thread points to (https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1FB8j_3MlNnzIRmimTE1m3-UyB5qvKTeYir3KOcKn2-M/viewform) doesn't give any more information regarding their "concept".

Their two youtube videos also give very little information and simply tries to hype their app.

Knowing they say their project is based on BOINC and considering you are reading this, you probably already have BOINC.
And I think of BOINC as an open project (source available) and one I can trust.

I see NO added value in Alantu's test/concept/whatever while BOINC is already established and working.

I question the motive with Alantu's project. Will it be mining bitcoins on one of the processors? Will it be including ads to generate revenue?

BOINC: For the sake of science, not corporate/political/money.

Problem with CERN server

vLHCathome news - Sat, 04/04/2015 - 07:34
Since 8pm yesterday there is a problem with part of the CERN server infrastructure for vLHC@home, which prevents jobs being fetched or returned to the VM's. As CERN is closed for the Easter holidays, this may not get resolved until Tuesday April 7th. In any case we wish all our volunteers a happy holiday break!

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.

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.
