Dear volunteers,
First of all, I hope that all of you and those close to you are well in this global pandemic.
This week is the anniversary of one of the hardest moments of this project. Three years ago, during a database update, it was corrupted. With this failure we detected that the backup system of the data base was not working as it should and we were only able to restore a 6-months-old backup. All this situation coincided just at the moment in which we stopped having a person dedicated full time to the project, which supposed an added difficulty.
The results sent by the volunteers were saved in another system and only the tasks in progress were affected.
The main loss of information was the credits obtained by the different volunteers. At that time we were able to recover a large part of them, but all the accounts created between January and June were lost.

Your support and understanding during those days was enormous. However, as I told you at the time, being able to return the credits to you was an important issue: it is the only way we have to thank you for all the support for the project.

Since then, several of you have asked me if we could recover the credits from those accounts, and I didn't want to let it go any further. It was not an easy job because we had the credit information but not a system to connect them with the new accounts you were creating. Thanks to the existence of Boincstats.com and the BOINC cross project identifier, part of you will be able to recover your credits. I have been able to find almost 300 of those accounts on Boincstats.com, and in the next few days, through Boincstats.com, I will send you a link to recover lost credits. You will receive a personalized URL that will add the lost credit to your user and will correct the date since you are collaborating with us. I will send the messages in several days so that Boincstats.com does not exceed the limit of messages it can send. I want to publicly thank Will for allowing me to use his platform for all this messages. I will notify you when all are sent.

If you don't have an account on Boincstats, you can create it and associate it with the BOINC projects you collaborate on. I will periodically search for new users to whom we can return credits.

If you have any idea to associate your old accounts with the current ones, do not hesitate to contact me, we will find how to prepare it.

This is the first step to gradually start up this project again. You are an incredible community that we do not want to miss. Unfortunately, we cant afford to hire someone full time for the project so we will go very slowly. We have tried several times to obtain founds for the project and we have had good evaluations, but not enough to get them. We will continue working on it, but until we get it, we will go slowly.

Thank you very much, you have me at your disposal and I hope that, little by little, you will be receiving more messages from me.

Greetings,
Jesus.

Estimados voluntarios:
Lo primero de todo espero que todos vosotros y vuestras personas cercanas estéis bien en esta pandemia mundial.
Esta semana es el aniversario de uno de los momentos más duros de este proyecto. Hace tres años, durante una actualización de la base de datos, ésta se corrompió. Con este fallo nos dimos cuenta de que el sistema de copia de la base de datos no funcionaba como debería y sólo pudimos restablecer una copia con 6 meses de antigüedad. Toda esta situación coincidió justo en el momento en el que dejamos de tener una persona dedicada a tiempo completo al proyecto, lo que supuso una dificultad añadida.
Los resultados calculados por los voluntarios se guardaban en otro sistema y sólo se vieron afectadas las tareas que estaban en marcha.
La principal pérdida de información fueron los créditos obtenidos por los diferentes usuario. En aquel momento pudimos recuperar gran parte de ellos, pero todas las cuentas creadas entre enero y junio se perdieron.

Vuestro apoyo y comprensión durante aquellos días fue enorme. No obstante, como os dije en aquel momento, para mí el poder devolveros los créditos era un tema importante: es la única forma que tenemos de agradeceros todo el apoyo al proyecto.

Sois varios los que desde entonces me habéis preguntado si podríamos recuperar los créditos de esas cuentas, y no quería dejarlo pasar más. No era un trabajo fácil porque teníamos la información de los créditos pero no un sistema para conectarlos con las nuevas cuentas que estabais creando. Gracias a la existencia de Boincstats.com y de un identificador de BOINC interproyectos, parte de vosotros podrá recuperar sus créditos. He podido encontrar casi 300 de esas cuentas en Boincstats.com, y en los próximos días, a través de Boincstats.com, os enviaré un enlace para poder recuperar los créditos perdidos. Recibiréis una URL personalizada que al entrar en ella con vuestro usuario de DENIS, os añadirá el crédito perdido y corregirá la fecha desde la que estáis colaborando con nosotros. Mandaré los mensajes en varios días para que Boincstats.com no supere el límite de mensajes que puede enviar. Quiero agradecer públicamente a Will, que me permita utilizar su plataforma para un envío masivo de mensajes. Cuando todos estén enviados os avisaré.
Si no tenéis cuenta en Boincstats, podéis crearla y asociarla a los proyectos en los que colaboréis. Periódicamente buscaré si hay nuevo usuarios a los que podamos devolver los créditos.

Si se os ocurre algún otro sistema para asociar vuestras antiguas cuentas con las actuales, no dudéis en contactarme, buscaré la forma de ponerlo en marcha.

Este es el primer paso para ir poniendo poco a poco en marcha de nuevo este proyecto. Sois una comunidad increíble y no se os puede desaprovechar. Por desgracia, no podemos contar con alguien a tiempo completo por lo que iremos muy despacio. Hemos intentado varias veces obtener financiación para el proyecto y hemos tenido buenas evaluaciones, pero no lo suficiente para llegar a ser financiados. Seguiremos trabajando en ello, pero hasta que lo consigamos, iremos despacio.

Muchas gracias, me tenéis a vuestra disposición y espero que poco a poco vayáis recibiendo más mensajes míos.

Un saludo,
Jesús.

Estupendas noticias!!!

Me alegro que DENIS no esté cerrado al 100%, que todavía luchéis por obtener nuevos proyectos y que queráis contar con la comunidad de voluntarios Boinc. Por mi parte, estoy deseando volver a apoyaros y computar para la ciencia y más aún si es de nuestro país.

Hi Richard,
I have reported your problem to the IT department. This is a firewall that is not controlled by me. As soon as I have an answer I inform you.

Best,
Jesús

I tried again and got a 404 error. Then I logged in and tried again, and just got a message saying I was already logged in. My credit is showing as 0.

I don't know what it happening. I have solved it manually. Now you have your credit and the correct date you joined.

Best,
Jesús

FYI, private messages aren't working which apparently includes trying to report SPAM (Offensive Messages). Tried to drop you a message on it and discovered that...

Cheers,

Yav

P.S. Strike that first part. Private messages ARE working just very slowly.
