yafu-16t single thread bug fixed
The yafu-16t app had a bug and was mostly running with only 1 thread. This scheduler bug is now fixed and the app uses at least 16 threads. Thanks for the people who reported it.

recovered from server crash
Last night the power supply of the YAFU server died. I could attach temorary a different one and restart the server. But the database didn't start and the DB recovery also didn't worked.
So I made a backup of the project and the project DB and started a 2 month old snapshot.
There I restored the backup and DB backup and now the server is running.
I hope without problems.

No unreserved Aliquot Sequence below size 131 anymore
I reserved all unreserved Aliquot Sequences with size=130 for the project. There is now no unreserved sequence below 131 anymore. We increased many sequences in it's size and were also terminated some.

We got a little bit stuck on the very big numbers. Only 2 have 16 or more cores in their system and run the YAFU-16t application.

But currently there is also enough work to do for the standard YAFU app.

On which Aliquot Sequence we are working?
We work currently on round about 1400 different sequences. These are the sequences with start term below 1 million. Each workunit is the last composite number in a different sequence.
On this page search for yoyo and you see which sequences we are working on.

Each workunit is named like this: yafu_ali_90930_L129_C125_1452456342_32. The first number (90930 in this case) is the sequence. More information about this sequence can be found on factorDB.

So if you own a Android 5 device or know somebody who has one, please attach to yafu. Currently this should lead to errors. But keep them attached so I can provide a new version and see if it is running.
Please ask also in the forum of your team.

Problems with yafu server
Hello,
the yafu server runs in a virtual box (4.3.10) VM on my 64 bit Win 7 Laptop. Round about 6h after the VM was started I get an BLKCACHE_IOERR from virtualbox which usual means that the disk is full. But it's not. The host has 40GB free disk and the guest is also only 20% filled.
I did some changes on the system and don't know if it fixes the issue.
I'm abroad the next days. So it might be that the server stops working again until I'm back.

New style for Boinc server
Over the past weeks Christian developed a prototype of a smarty template engine integration for BOINC. This will enable projects to change the appearance of their website without changing the php source code. Every template file can be overridden by projects, creating an individual look of their website. It's even possible to integrate another template engine easily. This integration uses the BOINC translation system and has it's own fast caching mechanism.
Currently a CSS grid system with default colors is used but this can be changed if needed.

Please have a look at this new appearance and give some feedback on how you like it.

The prototype can be found at the yafu project:
