staff blogs

distributed.net staff keep (relatively) up-to-date logs of their activities in .plan files. These were traditionally available via finger, but we've put them on the web for easier consumption.

Stats now read-only for a few days

Filed under: stats @ 19:44 UTC

We’ve temporarily put our stats server into “read-only” mode, which means that you’ll be able to view your current stats (and they will continue to be updated daily) but you won’t be able to make any changes to your user account or team.  As usual, no client work will be affected during this period.

This is being done to prepare for switchover to new hardware that will replace our aging stats server some time next week.  Read-only mode allows us to make and restore database backups without losing any user-made edits.  We’ll make another announcement once the new hardware is fully deployed.

If you’re curious, some details about the new stats hardware are listed on our FAQ page.
