21st of September

Farm news
No too much happening on the farm recently. As the weather has warmed up the Intel-GPU machines and the Raspberry Pi's are all that's running. They are running a mix of Asteroids and Einstein work, well they have been up until yesterday when they finished off all the Asteroids work.

I am still waiting on Parallella news, hopefully shipping confirmation. I suspect it will be October before hearing anything, which was their worst-case date for shipping to KickStarter backers.

Project news - Asteroids
They were recovering from their server crash last week when they had a power failure which took them off line for a day. They have been off-line with what was supposed to be a scheduled upgrade to a new server. It was estimated to take 8 hours but it has been off-line for more than 24 hours so far.

Project news - ClimatePrediction
They seem to have finally recovered from their failed server that were going to retire. They released a bunch of RAPIT (Full resolution ocean) models. They then suspended that lot and released a bunch more that the scientists wanted back sooner. All my Intel-GPU machines have picked up 7 each, so they will be busy for the next 10 days.
