2nd of April

Well its just past midnight as I write this, so we're into the 2nd of April.

BOINC testing
We got 7.0.59 at the end of last week. It has a fix to the resource shares issue that I indicated in previous posts. While things have improved it still has issues. There was a mention by Dr Anderson that there would be another fix required to make it behave.

I made donations to both Asteroids and GPUgrid, even though I haven't been able to run much GPUgrid work in the last 6 months. I hope this will enable both projects to continue their work. Unfortunately I can't claim tax deductions for either project.

Farm news
No much happening on the farm. I have been running 7.0.59 as mentioned above on a few machines to see how it behaves.

The Pi's continue on the way without a hiccup these days. I have attached all of them to both Albert and Asteroids as both projects support the Raspberry Pi. Albert is the Einstein beta test project, so usually as they get things tested they then put them across to the main project. I am not sure how long they will want to beta-test the Raspberry Pi application.

Seti server relocation
Just a reminder that the Seti server relocation will start in the next couple of hours and take at least 3 days. Personally I think it will take them a week to iron out any issues but we will just have to wait and see.

We don't know if the Cricket graph (it shows the network bandwidth usage) will be available once the move is complete. Its very useful to see how the network is holding up.

Maybe they will want to introduce the Pi application for Einstein@Home only when the current data for Binary Radio Pulsar Search (Arecibo) runs out and a new batch of Arecibo data are fed in.
