Rectilinear Crossing Number

The project is down since 07 october because of RAID-problems. This is the two weeks notice, the project will be removed on 29 october 2010 if the problems are not solved.

Dear boinc community,

on the 7th of November our server fell victim to a hacking attack. The only damage in this context was (luckily) done to my non-existing reputation as a server-admin. Nevertheless it would be irresponsible to let the server online the way it is now.

Unluckily we lack the personal and financial ressources to reconfigurate the server and adapt boinc to close the security leak.

We adapted the firewall settings to prevent at least the kind of attack we experienced this time, however there is no guarantee that not another approach is successfull at a later point.
Thus we will for the next few days leave the server online only during day-time when we can have an eye on it.
We will try to collect all the workunits that are still out there and provide the respective credits. However there will be no new workunits, as soon as the current WU queue is empty.

The project is almost finished, and its a shame that we have to cancel the shared computing at this point, but blame the hacker community.
However we will finish the rest of the computation locally, and keep you informed about progress as good as possible.

Thank you for your support and CPU power,
Greetings, Wolfgang

For today, server is online from 9:00 to 17:00.
The same is planned for Friday, Monday and so on,
until the queued Wu's are computed and collected.

Then: no new Wu's !!

It's a shame that this is because of hacking attempts. I really dislike those idiots.

Agreed. On the other hand, running a BOINC project does require some effort, and BOINC being a largely online service you have to be able to at least install new releases to close known vulnerabilities. Apparently, RCN was almost finished anyway. But it is a shame that they have to close down because of this, even though they would have been closing down anyway.

Given this announcement, countdown can be restarted I think, or might not even be necessary

Agreed, countdown has re-started from the 11th of november (this is the date of the post of Ungelovende).
Since the project stops I think no one wil object to the closure date of 25 november.

Ran RCN for years and sorry to see it end. Interestingly it's still considerably more active than some other projects still in the Vault:
