All acemd3 apps updated (210)
Currently there should be no major *known* bugs. We should cover Win64 and Linux, with reasonably recent cards.
Unfortunately, an internal cleanup in the filenames will make *existing* WUs fail. Sorry about that. Will send new test WUs soon.

Servers Remain Up During Power Outage
Large swaths of Northern California, including the UC Berkeley Campus, are under a Public Safety Power Shutoff due to high winds and the associated wildfire risks. Our servers are located in the campus Data Center which is protected by a high capacity UPS. We expect that our servers will remain up for the duration of the outage. Thus far Internet connectivity also remains up although this depends on factors outside of the Data Center.
I know some of you like to know the batch plan, so here it is...
Batch 13x270 is nearing completion for subfield 3. After that, we will spend a week or two picking some of the low hanging fruit on subfield 7. Then it's back to subfield 3, batch 13x271. This is a very big batch, so I expect it to last until the end of December, possibly into January.

Thank you all for your continued support.
Following a couple of weeks of tests in the LHC@home development project, we are upgrading our production server cluster to BOINC server release 1.2 this afternoon. During the update we will be running with slightly lower server capacity than usual.

I am writing to inform you all that the single-threaded Nbody application has been temporarily deprecated. We may bring back the single-threaded app if the multi-threaded app begins causing problems. As always, please let us know if you experience any difficulties with the application. Thank you all for your support.
