15th of March

Farm news
We're crunching overnight at the moment. Not all of the machines as its still not cool enough overnight but some of them are getting work.

The Pi's and the Parallella's are still running constantly too.

This week saw a bunch of windows updates, further complicated by the fact most of the windows machines have been off for the last month, so a heap of updates to download and apply.

I installed the GTX970's into the GPUgrid crunchers and have run a "short" work unit on each machine (they take around 2 hours). The GTX670's will go up on eBay soon.

BOINC testing
We got 7.4.42 for Windows to play with. No major changes just some bug fixes.

Project news - Asteroids
They've been having issues with work units failing to download (server side issue) and the guy that runs it is working in another city so its been left alone. It also was getting a certificate error, but he has managed to fix that. Its out of work at the moment and we're waiting on more.

Project news - CPDN
They've been restricting their work units to different computers, so the ANZ climate models which I used to run are now restricted to Mac computers only. The EU climate models I can get on the Windows machines and they take around 9 hours. The remaining work units are restricted to Linux hosts.
