Homepage description wrote:About [email protected]
[email protected] is designed to find plagiarism's in Internet.

Plagiarism at home uses distributed computers to search given text for potential plagiarism in Internet resources. Many people writing their work tend to "forget" the resources they used to create their work. This is especially important in scientific works. If anyone uses someone else's work as their own it is called plagiarism. Whenever some one else's work is used it should be noted and credit given to the author. For the people judging the work it is extremely hard to know all possible resources and text on the subject. It is nearly impossible to catch all potential plagiarism in the paper. This project aims to help them. Given the text, the project will provide a network of volunteer computers to search the Internet for similar texts or parts of the text. This will help to find potential resources that the author failed to mention in his work. It will help also the authors of the original works to get the credit they should have for their original work.

WARNING! This project applications heavy use internet connection by downloading web sites!
You can participate by downloading and running a free program on your computer.

It's NCI, but probably calls for a flat-rate connection.

Whilst not a new project, it looks like [email protected] is renewing itself. I don't think anything will change from your end Neil.

Here's what the home page states at the moment:
[email protected] is upgrading!

We are upgrading the [email protected] server.

A new version of the system should be online in October/November 2013.

All BOINC processes related to [email protected] are stopped at this time.

With the upgrade, a fresh BOINC system will be installed, and all users will have to re-register in order to continue to contribute to the [email protected] project.
I'll keep monitoring it because I'm thinking of adding this to replace ABCLLL which appears to be dead in the water so to speak.

Pasquale has just tweeted that it should be up in early 2014:

This will be to all intents and purposes a brand new project as everyone will need to rejoin.

Found this post over at the BOINC Forums:

[email protected] (a NASA project) is no more. The project has been down since Dec. 6. Here's some news about it at https://modelingguru.nasa.gov/community ... eric/boinc:
The [email protected] project is no longer active.
It was a pilot project to enable distributed computing of climate modelling, allowing the general public to share their home PC's power to run a segment of NASA's climate simulations, returning the results as they are completed.
Even the web portal is gone, and the forum is inaccessible. Although we were supposed to get new work units following several tries to deliver some that worked, they've apparently given up.

For those interested in using their computers to help with climate research, climateprediction.net (CPDN) appears to be the only BOINC option remaining.

Surprising for NASA not to at least give us warning. I know they are on a tight budget but to simply pull the plug like that seems odd to me.
They have a separate web page devoted to [email protected] so have emailed them to take it down or at least add a remark that it's history.
Like any civil service department I don't expect quick action on that alas.

Well maybe the [email protected] blog I quoted was premature but have emailed NASA asking if it is so. The website came back to life today! But no work.

Kai the project leader has just posted that he will be making work available again soon, so [email protected] is continuing.

Apparently he took over the project when NASA stopped funding it. So it's a one man show which means he's a pretty busy person.

Edit: Got work - all is well again.

New Project: [email protected]

http://chess.qugate.org/

Long description on the home page of the project that I won't repeat here.

Short workunits, but with a tight deadline making this project a bit tricky to make work nicely along side other projects.

Stats available in the usual place.

Cheers,

Al.

Warning to all, be careful navigating to [email protected] from the BOINC client. It appears their website has been hijacked. It's been down for ages now anyway so I think it is possibly dead although the owner did say more work was forthcoming the last time I managed to get onto their website.

I've ditched it but has anyone here heard anything about it?

Hi Neil,

Haven't had any stable new project, not to say with stats export for some time.

Now we have one - [email protected]

http://bealathome.com/

A maths project looks for a counterexample of the Beal's conjecture in number theory.

Stats in the usual place.

Cheers,
Philip

Not exporting stats though, unless they are in a non-standard place.

Cheers,

Al.
