Might not be a bad idea either. Lattice has no work and hasn't for a while. The 64bit client is 2.5 to 3 times slower than the 32bit on the same WUs and there's no easy way to force the 32bit client (the anon platform appears to be disabled). Saw somewhere that the project has more computing power than it needs so we're probably not helping Lattice by having it in the Vault. Having an excess of computing power also results in no real motivation to fix problems either...

Back to AQUA. Still no work except for a few test WUs. Yesterday the admin posted that there are no plans for new work in the near future. Today it seems he is gone (a bit of a shock):

Hi all,

Just a note to let you know that I am no longer with D-Wave, and this will be my last post as AQUA's admin. And before you ask: I don't know what will become of AQUA.

Thank you all for your help during the previous years!

Thank-you all
Dear volunteers,

Your contribution over the last 3 years to the AQUA@home project was critical for us to perform immense computations necessary for the advancement of our science and technology. We have published several scientific papers reporting the results of those computations, including our recent publication in Nature. We made sure to acknowledge your generous contributions in those papers, as your help was vital. At this time, however, we no longer have large computations requiring the computing power of AQUA@home. We therefore have come to the decision to shut down AQUA for the forseeable future. Thank-you again for the selfless devotion of your time, patience, and computing resources to our effort to progress the field of quantum computing.

Sincerely,
Neil Dickson
