The scheduler will be shut down for maintenance starting this friday 23rd. The operating system and boinc software will be updated to latest version. The forum may experience minor downtime, but will be kept online mostly. No results will be aborted or rejected. It will be possible to upload after the maintenance is over.

Prime Tuples Badges
New badges for the SPT sub-project! The Prime Tuples subproject fully covered the missing range from Stop@Home and also scanned for new kind of tuples (tpt, stpt, gaps) up to the same range. As a Thank You to all contributors, I present you four new badges. The badges are awarded based on credit earned on the SPT app (ids 10,11), not RAC and the credit level have been chosen based on current credit distribution. The results of the project are slowly being submitted to OEIS. If you do not have a badge, do not worry, there will be more tasks, searching for rarer and longer sequences.

Plan for SPT subproject
For processing of SPT results I found a partner that will help me write a export script to OEIS, and he is working... And while he is working I forgot a bit that I have a project, sorry. I was excited to have my name in OEIS, but it is not yet ready and the excitement is fading.
The previous batch, using the new file upload handler ran out, and it is much smoother. I submitted new batch 70 that goes up to 5e17. See, this new SSD and FUH allows me to have larger batches. And after that, I will submit batch for 5e17-6e17. You might notice that we already did that range, but that was with old version, which only looked for symmetric prime tuples and was slower.
Regarding the padls total (tot5) subproject, it is still running, but I throttled it to only few active tasks to not waste power. There are some ideas to improve it.
However, I am working on the Lua / compile-on-target application.
Have a Great day everybody and stop pretending and blocking yourself.

CoVid19 Reduction in tot5 compute work
Because of the global situation, I am disabling distribution of new PADLS tot5 workunits in an attempt to divert the compute attention to Folding@Home.
Happy spring Equinox!

Database Crash and Recovery
03.03.2020: Somewhere around 20.02.2020 another database crash occurred. This time we did not loose any data (all was backed up). After a disk swap, most of the functionality has been restored. I am still slowly working on restoring the science result database and work generator.
30.01.2020: Unfortunately, the database here suffered a corruption and crashed. Fortunately, the backup was less than 24 hours old, so we did not loose much. I am attempting to recover recent results that are lost in database from uploaded files. While this process is running, scheduler will be disabled and you may see strange numbers in the server status page. After that process is complete, you will have time to upload results in progress. The results that are definitely lost will be resent.
No other results were lost.
