This project is reaching end-of-life. Automatic work generation has been stopped. Account creation has been stopped. Before the end of 2018 the server will be taken off-line.


It's been fun.
Cheers!

In what way is it end of life? Running out of money, hardware getting too old, not got people wanting to use it to solve problems, something else?

And is it good news or bad news that it is reaching end of life? Do we need to be happy or sad?

You ask the most profound questions that even artists, philosophers and spiritual leaders would have trouble answering :)

Maybe this project has served it's purpose and it was good.

Very sad to read about the end of yet another long term project. It would have been nice to the thousands of people who have donated processing power and hugely expensive electricity if the administrators could have provided some explanation for ending the project.
