Dec. 27th: project temporarily unavailable due to network maintenance

December 19, 2018

Hi everyone,

our University network will undergo some critical maintenance on December 27th, between 6:30 AM and 10:00 AM CET. During that time Einstein@Home might not be available at all times. This can affect our website as well as our workunit management servers. Don't worry, your BOINC software is going to cache extra tasks for your computer(s) to process and any finished tasks will be uploaded as soon as our servers are reachable again.
