What unspeakable arrogance!

The LHC team will operate their project as they see fit. They are not beholden to you, me, or anyone else.

I wouldn't open my front door just because a bunch of self-important jokers demand that I should.

You'd do well to remember that the project is run for the benefit of CERN, and not for the benefit of the crunchers.

I also agree, but wish there was some news about the alpha project, you cant even get into the site anymore. Surely someone on the LHC staff could get us an update as to why all our completed work cannot connect?

This is from the number crunchin forum!!::...

The alpha-server is still running. But it is hosted on the same machine as the old lhc@home. So when the DNS record for lhc@home was changed alpha became unavailable.
I do not know what the plans are for the future though.

The workunits on alpha has not been important since the very beginning of lhc@home. It is simply the same study run a 100 times. So that we would always have work there.
Alpha was simply kept alive to test updates to webpages, daemons, setup and sixtrack, before they were moved to the main server, thus exposing as few people to the transition problems as possible.

Whether this will be relevant in the future i do not know. Especially when there is no regular admin. We barely have time to work on one system.
