Hi everyone,

we're going to move around our infrastructure over the coming weeks, starting this week. This means that our test site albertathome.org will be offline for a longer period of time (roughly 1-2 weeks). You might also notice a few hickups here at einsteinathome.org, but we try and limit those interruptions to a few minutes only. Don't worry, your BOINC clients won't be affected by this as they maintain a pool of tasks to do and will retry any failed connections to our servers automatically.

Stay safe and see you on the other side!

Thanks for your patience,
Oliver

Quick update: we're done with

Quick update: we're done with most of the infrastructure changes! Given the current circumstances everything went astonishingly well due to really great team work (across two continents and three cities).

We don't expect any further interruptions here at einsteinathome.org. Our test project albertathome.org, while running again, will see one more change that might cause a downtime of a few hours but it's low risk so it should quickly be back once it went down.

Oh, and for those who read through all of this: you should now experience a better performance of this website.

Cheers,
Oliver

My thanks to the entire team for a really great job - it must have been great since I didn't notice anything unusual!  Are you really sure you actually did do something??? ;-) :-).

Obviously, it's one of the few advantages of a UTC+10 timezone :-).

Since that description fits me, better performance will be much appreciated!

Thanks very much for the update.

Cheers,
Gary.
