We are going to shut down the project next Tuesday, Jan 23rd at around 10 AM CET for an upgrade of our database backend systems to make them ready for the years to come. We’re going to upgrade hardware parts, operating systems as well the databases themselves, which is why we need to shut down the entire project, including the BOINC backend and this very website.
Generally you don’t have to do anything at your end. Your BOINC client will temporarily pause fetching new tasks and automatically upload your finished ones as soon as the project is up and running again.
We expect the upgrades to be finished the same day and will announce it here accordingly.
