Any news about Albert, did it get lost in the crossfire?

All I see there is You don't have permission to access /index.php on this server.

Being unable to connect to

Being unable to connect to Albert@home, I report here that all gamma-ray units on Albert@home seem to fail or being declared invalid, while they work here in Einstein@home. The application release seems to be 3.11 here and 3.12 in Albert.

As Albert@Home is completely

As Albert@Home is completely down atm, I set up this thread here at Einstein@Home.

Albert@Home is down due to the conversion to Drupal. Unfortunately we found that we couldn't keep the web server running during conversion, affecting not only the web pages, but also scheduler, upload etc. Albert@Home doesn't have a dedicated DB server, we need basically all resources on that machine for converting the BOINC DB (user, forums) tables to the Drupal DB. If all goes well this time, Albert@Home will be back up later today; however we already had a few unsuccessful conversion attempts (each taking ~12h). More likely it will take until tomorrow.

Correction: the conversion

Correction: the conversion was originally scheduled for the whole week. Albert@Home will definitely not come up again today and it's not sure yet whether it will be tomorrow.

Sorry for the confusion, misunderstanding on my end.

Hi guys, In short: we're

Hi guys,

In short: we're very close!

Sorry, for the longer downtime of albert. Despite careful upfront testing and planning we ran into a few issues during the migration. Would it have been einstein, we'd have scrapped the migration attempt after two days already. Given that this is albert though we took the freedom to ride out the storm and fix the issues right away. The biggest challenge are the different time zones (CEST and EST) which cause extra delays in communication.

Anyhow, we're currently running another, hopefully final data import after we fixed the last known show-stoppers. So, fingers crossed, we might in fact be able to bring the site back up online today or tomorrow morning at the latest.

Again, sorry for the long downtime - we think it was worth it.

Cheers,
Oliver

Watch out with posting on

Watch out with posting on Albert, as the Profile there will show the email address of everyone posting on the forums. With no option to hide it.

For that matter, one of the comments I was about to post on Albert:
Account->Profile when empty should show an empty profile, not my email address immediately followed by my username (no space between them), since when I am a member and what possible (empty) country I am from.

I can read Oliver's email address and Phil's.

We've taken the page offline

We've taken the page offline immediately after we became aware of that issue!

Thanks Jord for the quick report. However, right now I can't reproduce what you're describing, but we're looking into it.

I didn't see anybody else's

I didn't see anybody else's profile, but I did see everyone's email address as a tooltip on mouseover the silhouette image by their posts.
