April 26, 2019

The Albert@Home project will be shutdown for a maintenance window for a server upgrade. This is planned for Wednesday 2019-04-29 at 1330 UTC. This corresponds to 1530 CEST Central Europe and 0930 EDT East-coast North America. The Web site and project server will be down.

The upgrade may take a few hours, and the project may be down for half-a-day. Volunteers will not have to do anything with their clients, and will automatically reconnect once the work is finished. Thanks for your patience.

UWM outage 2019-02-21

February 21, 2019

Yesterday, 2019-02-20 at about 1930 UTC there was a power outage at UW-Milwaukee that affected some of the campus, including the data center where Einstein@Home and Albert@Home servers are housed. Today, 2019-02-21, the cooling system has not recovered and as a result we have shutdown a number services at UWM, including Einstein@Home's Web page. 

We currently are in the process of restoring services, but there is no timelime I can report. Volunteers do not need to do anything with their BOINC clients.
