Whirled Commie Grid started transferring operations from IBM to the Krembil Research Institute on 2/9/22. They stopped sending WUs on 2/14 and cut off receipt of results on 2/27. They expected to be back online on 4/22.

Well....um...it has not gone well... WCG still is not up and running although it sounds like they are getting close. See link below for a status update from yesterday 5/10. They'll give us a new schedule tomorrow.

Which Kaniggit will snag the first WCG work unit?

Feel free to reveal the true reasons why WCG has been down so long below.

WCG is almost ready to restart.
QA testing has finally successfully finished and all the bugs have been resolved. Production environment is being tested right now. Considering the unexpected issues we ran into with the QA system, we prefer to test it a couple of days further. The website and forum are ready to be relaunched, the production environment is successfully querying BOINC locally and we are going to restart BOINC slowly in the next few days. We will provide further details early next week.

The Boinc client is set to check for work units only once per day. You might check manually a few times per day to see if you can snag some work. Who will be the first?

Dear Volunteers,
We have been working hard to enable the restart of the WCG. As anyone who has experienced this journey with us knows, it has been a long and rocky road. Unfortunately, our testing uncovered unforeseen bugs and prevented us from discussing much of our day-to-day work with you. In this update, we wish to give some insight into some of the technical difficulties and new methods of communication we have been working on.

...To clarify, while the existing users would see all their past contributions and stats, forums, and web content, we are facing issues with the account registration process for new volunteers. By our best estimate, this issue and others related to user experience on the WCG website should be fixed by early next week.
