SETI @ Home Offline Due to Power Failure

Hello Everyone:

I wanted to briefly inform interested parties about the current SETI at Home outage.

The outage occurred on Monday night due to unknown reasons.  The service should be restored Thursday afternoon this week.  It's currently unclear when the project will come back online.  We'll keep everyone updated to any changes.

To follow updates from the University of Berkeley please see http://ucbsystems.org/category/active/unscheduled-outage/

Warmly,

Brad Deauman

Hello Everyone,

As of May 08, 2012 the JBOD (Just a Bunch of Drives) our donors provided for the SETI at Home lab has been pressed into service.  Currently the disks slated for our donated server GeorgeM are being used to serve work units to the data processors.  For more on this please see this post by Matt Lebofsky, project scientist for SETI at Home http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/forum_thread.php?id=67989.

Hello Everyone:

Here's the usual update on what we're up to.

1. We're currently working on a fundraiser to purchase quantity 4, 24" monitors for the SETI at Home offices.  These monitors coupled with our previous workstation and computer peripherals (mice and keyboards) fundraisers will put us one step closer to upgrading the lab's equipment.  If you have funds to spare, please consider donating by visiting http://gpuug.org/content/setihome-asus-24-lcd-monitors Read more »
