Дорогой Кранчер!,

Проект World Community Grid приветствует тебя!


Со времени выпуска прошлого письма в октябре 2007 мы сделали очень много. Запустили два новых исследовательских проекта, Help Conquer Cancer (Помоги Победить Рак) и Nutritious Rice for the World (Питательный Рис - Миру), а один проект, AfricanClimate@Home (Моделирование климата Африки), завершился. Была выполнена миграция платформы с UD (United Devices, Объединенные Устройства) на BOINC (Berkeley Open Infrastructure Networking Computing, Открытая Инфраструктура унив. Беркли для Сетевых Вычислений). Веб сайт был переведен на Китайский. Также былы добавлены разные интересные фичи. Чтобы узнать обо все этом, читайте далее.

Мы хотели бы поблагодарить всех и каждого за то что они продолжают участвовать на благо человечеста в одной из наиболее крупных публичных вычислительных сетей World Community Grid.

Обновления в исследованиях

С момента запуска WCG в ноябре 2004, к проекту было подключено более 1000000 компьютеров. Мощность всех компьютеров так велика, что один компьютер смог выполнить эту же работу только если бы работал не останавливаясь на протяжении 170000 лет! В настоящий момент волонтеры жертвуют примерно 1400 лет процессорного времени в неделю!

Используя эти огромные мощности, WCG имеет возможность проводить одновременно 5 проектов, и уже завершила работу над четырьмя. О самые новых проектах - Help Conquer Cancer (Помоги Победить Рак) и Nutritious Rice for the World (Питательный Рис - Миру) - написано ниже. Если вы владеете английским или китайским smile.gif, вы можете почитать информацию из первоисточнико на официальном сайте, http://www.worldcommunitygrid.org/newslett...viewProjects.do

World Community Grid Помогает побороть рак

В ноябре 2007го IBM и команда исследователей из Института Рака Онтарио (Канада) запустили новый захватывающий проект названый Помоги Побороть Рак. Проект занимается анализом структуры белков, связанных с образованием рака, чтобы разработать лекарства которые когда-нибудь помогут воспрепятствовать этим белкам образовывать рак.

World Community Grid Предотвращает продуктовый (рисовый) кризис

По миру ходят слухи об истощении полезности выращиваемого риса - новые урожаи не так продуктивны и полезны как их предшественники... IBM и Университет Вашингтона запустили проект который призван создать новые штаммы риса, которые смогут производить более крупные и полезные побеги. Проект изучает рис на атомном уровне, используя вычислительные силы WCG, и после этого сравнивает полученные результаты с традиционными видами селекционных техник, которые проводились фермерами испокон веков. Читаем на http://www.worldcommunitygrid.org/newslett...8Q2/viewRice.do

Переход на платформу BOINC

WCG рад сообщить что миграция на платформу BOINC полностью завершена. Переход на эту платформу в целом поможет улучшить производительность исследований WCG, но с другой стороны это может ограничить Ваше участие (ну тут можно поспорить., прим. Rilian). Если до этого момента вы использовали только нативный WCG клиент, то прочитайте инструкцию на офсайте по переходу на BOINC. Там ничего сложного: http://www.worldcommunitygrid.org/newslett...incMigration.do

Новые возможности

World Community Grid добавил новеы возможности чтобы сделать Ваше участие еще более полезным, более личным и захватывающим! Участники могут размещать виджеты (куски HTML кода для показа статистических картинок, итд) на своих и других вебсайтах. Добавилась возможность чтения статистической информации прямо в формате XML, а также теперь можно подписаться на обновления форума по RSS. Дополнительно, за участие в проектах Вы получаете ярлыки с иконкой, что быдет видно в Вашем профиле на сайте и форуме WCG. Ну и конечно, самое главное, для тех украинцев для которых китайский - друга рiдна мова, - веб сайт теперь полностью переведен на китайский язык smile.gif. Обо всем этом, а также о других фичах, читайте http://www.worldcommunitygrid.org/newslett...wNewFeatures.do

Если кратко: ВЦГ переезжает в новый датацентр. Примерно 8го числа вебсайт будет отключен и задания выдаваться и приниматься не будут. Примерно 12го числа ожидается пуск новой системы и все заработает как раньше. на период 8-12 января рекомендую переключиться на похожие BOINC проекты, например Rosetta@Home и другие медико-биологические проекты

Announcing New Servers and New Hosting Facility

As World Community Grid continues to grow, we require more and more space to store the results from, and data for, our members. Our current infrastructure has been running World Community Grid since November 2004. This infrastructure has worked very well for us. However, the growth of World Community Grid has reach the point where it is time to move to more powerful servers and have access to more bandwidth. This is a direct result of the awesome contribution that all of you have made and continue to make. We look forward to continuing to grow in the new environment.

To prepare for our expansion in 2009 and beyond, World Community Grid is getting brand new equipment and relocating the hosting environment to a new IBM location in Toronto, Canada. Moving to a new location will allow World Community Grid to have access to a new and secure hosting center that is being set up at this time. When fully migrated, we will be able to process the results returned by members and the statistics accumulated by members much more quickly and efficiently.

This hosting center move notification is important because it will provide a better experience for our members and because it may mean that some members may need to modify their firewall settings to allow the World Community Grid software to communicate with the hosting center. If your firewall does prompt you, please re-approve your computers access to World Community Grid. This hosting center move will not affect the URL or web address you use to reach the World Community Grid web site and any existing bookmarks will continue to work.

We are planning to be running in the new environment by the end of the first full week of January. In order to get there from here, we have a tremendous amount of work to do. Most of it will be behind the scenes and not visible to the members. However, some of the changes will be visible to the members. These changes include the following:

We will start making changes soon to work unit deadlines so that we can reduce the amount of data to be transferred between hosting centers. The new deadlines will be only one week, so please keep an eye on your work units to make sure you can complete them on time.

When we are ready to transfer the databases, we will have to stop the website, forums and grid. We expect this step to occur around Jan 8th. During this time members will only see a page that explains what World Community Grid is and contains information about the progress of the change over and invites new members to return in a few days. Also during this time, the BOINC clients will not be able to communicate with the servers.

Finally, our IP address will change. This will cause some people's computers firewalls to request permission to communicate with our servers. Our new IP addresses will be 198.20.8.241 and 198.20.8.246.

We anticipate that the move will be fully completed during the week of January 12, 2009.

We will update you as we proceed through this change, and we sincerely appreciate your wonderful support!

Happy New Year from World Community Grid!

World Community Grid wants to thank you for your contribution in 2009. We had over 71,000 new volunteers join us and together contributed over 97,000 years of computer time. We completed the first phase of three of our projects: Discovering Dengue Drugs - Together, The Clean Energy Project, and Influenza Antiviral Drug Search. We also significantly advanced the research in our other research projects. This is a tremendous accomplishment that we could not have done without your help. THANK YOU!

Help us grow larger in 2010

We need your help to do even more in 2010. We will be launching the second phases of Discovering Dengue Drugs - Together, The Clean Energy Project, and Influenza Antiviral Drug Search, as well as starting new projects. We need your help to recruit more volunteers, so that we can advance these research projects faster.

In order to help you help us grow, we have significantly changed the World Community Grid Facebook application. This new version of the application on Facebook provides tools that help you spread the word about World Community Grid to all of your Facebook friends. It is now possible for you to have updates from World Community Grid automatically shared with your friends who use Facebook. You can also put a tab on your Facebook Profile that shows what you have contributed and shows the lastest news from World Community. New volunteers can even register and download the World Community Grid software without having to leave Facebook.
