Project downtime Apr 30 - May 1 night
Due to urgent electrical maintenance work on the UWM physics building Einstein@Home will not be available during the night from Apr 30 to May 1. The power outage is scheduled from 10:00 PM to 6:00 AM Milwaukee time (CT), which should be 3:00 to 11:00 (AM) UTC. This will certainly affect the website and some other project services. The new scheduler and the DB will continue to run, so if clients use the new scheduler URL they can report and receive work.

Short website downtime on 2015-04-11
Hi everyone,

Our website is going to be down for about 15 minutes at some point between 0:00-3:00 AM CDT (7:00-10:00 AM CEST) on Saturday, April 11th due to urgent network maintenance at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. Primary backend services of the project should still be available during the website outage.

First Einstein@Home Newsletter
Dear Einstein@Home volunteers,

February 19th was the tenth anniversary of the Einstein@Home launch. A lot has happened in the past decade, and thanks to your support, the project has become one of the largest distributed volunteer projects on the planet. Thank you for helping Einstein@Home to do great science!

We would like to begin Einstein@Home's anniversary year by launching the Einstein@Home newsletter. Four times a year, project scientists and developers will tell you about our exciting science. In each newsletter, a handful of Einstein@Home team members will report on what they have been up to, and what their plans for the future are.

Our first newsletter features updates from Bernd Machenschalk on how the project operates, and from M. Alessandra Papa on Einstein@Home's latest and most sensitive gravitational-wave hunt. Benjamin Knispel brings you up to speed with the search for binary radio pulsars and Holger Pletsch has news on the Fermi gamma-ray pulsar analysis. Enjoy!

Project downtime
Hi everyone,

Later today we're going to shutdown the project for at most 1-2 hours to deploy important security fixes on our infrastructure.

Thanks for your understanding,

Upload server problems resolved
Just to avoid any confusion, the upload server problems reported in the previous news item were resolved some time ago. The project has run normally since January, 16th.

Happy crunching,
