The Enigma@home is down (http://boincstats.com/forum/forum_thread.php?id=6329&nowrap=true#97793) and there is no information if it's coming up again. On may 5th this project will be excluded from the DC-vault. If the project is up again it can be re-included in the DC-vault.

Looks like Enigma is back up and running...

Yes, see the quote from the frontpage
The server is back up after it's longest outage. Unfortunately I had no money to pay the hosting bills so after a while my account got disabled and the server became unreachable.
I also had hardware problems with the local part of the server, as a result minor part of the database was recovered after critical failure, it's not yet entirely fixed so most probably validator will mark some of the results as invalid. Since it's already late night here, I'll fix that tomorrow, together with the WUs marked as timeouts.
It's also possible that I'll be changing the server location, I'll post more info tomorrow.

It looks like there has been little (if any) work from Enigma@home in quite some time. The most recent communication from the admins I can find is here:

No work available
As probably everyone noticed, there is no work available for a long period of time.
Unfortunately it's not going to change soon, because I have to find a replacement server.
The old machine is not reliable anymore, it passes stress tests yet freezes randomly after couple of days (or even weeks sometimes) during normal operation, which is not acceptable.
The worst part however are the HDDs, only two still alive, one is damaged already while the other starts to suffer from old age (was online for over 3,5 years).
In current state the server barely keeps the website up, so any work has to wait until I'll get the new hardware setup, which is going to take a while.

Might be a little while longer that this project will be offline.
Should it be suspended from the Vault in the meantime?

Correct.. It should. I will remove it in a few days.

Enigma is back :)
They came back a week ago, and I haven't experienced any problems running the project during this period...
Hopefully this is more than 'test-runs'.

Agreed... have been running Enigma again for the past few days with no issues... might be time to bring it back to The Vault.

Have added it back.
