From L@H newsfeed:


September 29, 2006
LHC@home server support will be migrated progressively from CERN to Queen Mary College over the next few weeks, with the support of GridPP. When the migration is completed for the primary application (Sixtrack), a new CERN application (Garfield) will be introduced on the server, running side by side with Sixtrack. This should assure a more even provision of work units for the LHC@home community.
We will make every effort to keep you informed as this transfer proceeds.


I can bearly believe the people at CERN finally (almost) made it to move a new application to L@H, either they realized this thing works, or some mad cruncher found CREN's director phone number and home address ;)!

Guess moving the hardware and, likely, part of project administartion off from CERN to QM College will help a lot and is likely to have been decisive in convincing CERN to get back from the give-up strategy they were in the facts adopting for L@H, but hey, both us (the humble crunchers) and them (the eggheads at CERN) agreed that a higher engagement in project administration and communication was needed for L@H not to die on starvation, so, if the people at QMC will help with this, both them and CERN's decision are welcome, IMHO.

The very first step along this transition road seem difficult though, this the latest post on L@H newsfeed :(

Project temporarily stopped, while a disk issue is being solved. A new batch of jobs are ready and will be loaded when the disks are fixed.

Will wait and hope...

Greetings folks!

if my memory is correct ben segal mentioned months ago that they were looking to port more programs to boinc. particular the garfield application. So a total surprice its not, but it is a nice gift. I almost feel like i'm having a birthday.

Your memory is right, watnou, but, IMHO, it looked pretty clear from Ben's psots that having garfield, and maybe GEANT4, up'n'running on L@H needed people at CERN to first make their mind up about whther they still wanted to devote interest and resources on mass distributed computing.

This is why I think that moving the project (partly) to QMC helped a lot. It's only my humble opinion, obviously.

bye

Let's have some "BOINC Lasagna" ready for Garfield ;-)

The disk error has been solved - time to wait for the WUs to come rushing out :)
