So, Alex's note today about server software would allow one to infer that there is life left in this project.

Beyond LHC going on line?

I was previously left wit the impression that the data stream produced by the project once LHC was on line would be beyond the beyond for any @home equipment, and that the project would just die. Was that a wrong impression?

Hopefully it was. I've thought about this too but if the LHC will finally go online then there might be some data that could use "@home equipment"... or not?

Oh, and I don't think Alex would be upgrading the server software if the project was about to close...

Indeed. It looks like there may be some hope for this project. Let's see if the Grid system allows for some crunching by us mere mortals.

Even after LHC beeing operational, they will still need computing power to analyse the results from the collisions, or to tune their machinery for new experiments ... because each answered question leads to more questions and new theories :D

Even if we get work from LHC, what happens if they find Higgs the Day they start?

Then they get some champagne and start working on the new particles they've found but never knew existed... and we get more work

Nice! I'm just glad to finally be able to crunch something for this project!

That is if they find some...

Well, if they don't then they have to change their methods and test new possibilities... => we get work

Whatever particles are released by the amount of energy involved I am sure there
will be more questions than answers at this
point. As stated in a previous post,even if
the Higgs Boson is found, it will lead to
more and more discoveries of other particles
even more exotic.
Whatever the outcome, this will be an amazing
device.

As far as i know, then projekt should produce
data in the amount of PB (PetaBytes). So there
should be data enough to us all.
