Other news
The farm had a few days off during the week. Currently its cool enough to have everything running. The x64 nodes are all doing the O2MD1 search on their CPUs. I am back to running the AMD machines on half the cores as they are now down to 6 hours and 45 minutes per work unit.

Einstein SSL/TLS security
They are updating their site security and so the minimum versions of the BOINC client that will work with them are:
From the 27th of Nov 2019 - BOINC 7.4.36
From the 25th of May 2020 - BOINC 7.10

If you're still running an older BOINC client you'll have to update to a newer one.

The original idea is documented HERE

In order to simplify things I would drop the idea of the SuperHost doing verification and leave it as it happens today (ie the projects verify the results).

I posted to the BOINC dev mailing list that I could provide some funding for a developer to work on this. That was in response to a BOINC wish list/roadmap email. I also dropped a couple of private emails to people in the BOINC community on the subject. I didn't get any response so have to assume there is no interest.
