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.

[resolved] stats offline

Filed under: stats @ 00:16 UTC

edit: stats now back up, thanks for your patience!

Stats is currently down due to technical difficulties – engineers are working to bring the system back online as soon as possible.

As always, no work will be lost while the site is down – all submitted blocks will be credited as normal.

Moo!

Hi All,

Stats is back online and caught up. The dns record for stats.distributed.net
has been updated and will take effect within the next few hours.

At present, stats is operating in a read-only mode while we perform some
consistency checks. This means that any changes to teams, participant
information, etc is currently unavailable.

Thanks for your co-operation and patience. Moo! ]:8)

Hi All,

Some of you may have received an email from stats indicating your password was
retrieved by googlebot:

you (or “crawl-66-249-68-177.googlebot.com” [66.249.68.177]) recently
requested the password for your distributed.net stats account.

This was a side effect of the temporary placeholder page put in place whilst
fritz (statsbox) was offline. Your password has not been disclosed to anyone
but you.

For now, I’ve blocked googlebot from accessing stats, until our robots.txt file
takes effect again.

Moo! ]:8)

It looks like fritz (statsbox) is experiencing some residual issues following
the problems within our provider earlier.

We’re working to resolve this as soon as possible. All work submitted will be
credited when stats is brought back online.

Thanks for your co-operation and patience. Moo! ]:8)

Hi All,

It looks like fritz, our stats server, is experiencing technical difficulties
and is offline.

I’ll keep you all posted as information comes through. In the mean time, no
work will be lost

Thank you for you co-operation and patience

I’m going to be doing some updates on fritz over the next couple hours.

Apologies in advance if I have to take stats offline for a bit
