FiND@Home is a research project that uses donated CPU
time to perform docking simulations on malaria proteins.
You can participate by downloading and running a free program on your computer. .
FiND@Home is based at UCD CASL

I'm a French guy, 40+ years old.
The albatross over my shoulder is in loving memory of our friend Jip.
Back to the future?
I like the title of the topic :)
This is an update and information post.
So, what's going on?
All malaria works are done (except for some remaining errors).
So, I'm going to update the BOINC server that hosts the database (we actually have 3 servers). Obviously, I'll clean/update the main server.
I'll try to fix what people are mainly talking/asking about (without guarantee).
So the project is going to be in stand by mode until I chose to activate it again.
Remember that we are only two people. Ant is providing data and I'm dealing with everything else. And I've a PhD to do :)
You can follow me on Twitter, @BenjaminRoques. I don't post that much, but I will answer questions for sure.
This project is awesome, not because of its scientific outcome (I mean, of course the outcome is wonderful/promising/tropbiengénial :) ), but because of its community.
I'm not a overly skilled programmer and I just discovered BOINC a year ago. But this is ant's, or our project and we are BOINC top rated project (okay, maybe no top rated but who cares :) ).
I've no idea that BOINC existed before, but I've discovered a lovely community. This is not about credits/rewards/etc. it is just about helping people doing science.
I hope I'll have time to work and make our project better (you can give away my email, you know... for help...). I'm still on Twitter :3
A lonely sysadmin.

The BOINC database, the one which stores the WUs, the Users, the forum, etc. crashed. But I wasn't sysamdin on this server.
We rebooted the server and I'm now going to have rights on it.

I don't know why but the server just crashed this weekend. Not BOINC but the entire system.
I had to cut off the power and reboot everything.

Due to an XSS issues in server_status.php, I updated it.
PyAssimilator.py (vina) works well, do not mind the red warning.
I'm a little bit stupid, I forgot to backup my code for the progress bar... I'll do it again but maybe not today.

I have to shut down the server for the weekend. UCD is going to do some tests with the power in the building where the database is hosted.
