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.


BOINC Open Source Project Looking for Experienced macOS Developers

February 14, 2019

The Berkeley Open Infrastructure for Network Computing (BOINC) system is the software infrastructure used by Einstein@Home and many other volunteer distributed computing projects. The BOINC Open Source Project is looking for volunteers to develop and maintain the BOINC client on macOS. The BOINC Client and Manager are C++ cross-platform code supporting Microsoft Windows, macOS, Linux, and several other operating systems. We currently have a number of volunteer developers supporting Windows and Linux, but our main macOS developer is winding down his involvement after many years.
