    The response was slow due to me pestering him about resetting my password. :p

    TinyCore's CLI version called MicroCore might be worth looking into.

    I'd be willing to help out.

    Yeah...I'm not running any VM's at the moment. I need to get them going here soon since I have been making adjustments to the farm lately.

    I got some of my VM's up and running on a different box now. Only one or two crashes which seem to be the ones that had trouble with crashing on other boxes. I may just rebuild those and see if that helps. I also have a few more to move over once I'm happy with the stability of the host while running these.

    Stats are still broke. I emailed the admin again. Hopefully he gives the server a nice little love tap.

    We should be seeing the stats come back up shortly.

    Edit: Stats coming back up. So far they don't look like they cover the entire 7 days they were down. I don't know if there was actually work going on though. Since their stats go down on such a regular basis, I didn't bother to look....

    If anyone else noticed a loss in point production while the stats were down, here is what he had to say about it.

    I am on a fixed bandwidth limit per month. How much is it going to use per month?

    I don't have any exact numbers, but it is pretty small. It is basically a bunch of pings and trace routes.

    Majestic-12 on the other hand is a major data hog, so avoid it unless you have leftover bandwidth at the end of your cycle.

    I just brought several of my VMs (15 plus the host to be exact) back up this morning. The high-tech issue that brought them all down? My high quality network cable with the retaining click broken off had pulled out partially and the whole machine lost network/interconnect access. Sadly, this happened probably 2 or 3 weeks ago and I just got back to it today.

    I emailed the admin about the stats not exporting again. Time for him to kick the server....

    We are still 20 days out from taking 8th place.

    This morning I noticed that my Lubuntu VM agent was getting a ton of error messages. Silly me, I forgot to sudo -s before starting the agent. :confused:

    Now that stats are back up, it appears we are ~15 days off from taking 8th and our production is still light from what it was.

    I emailed Ido to let him know the stats were down. He said it was the servers having trouble and he restarted them. Hopefully, they will be back up shortly.

    We take 8th place today. According to the stats, we are ~287 days away from 7th. So, if anyone can come up with a massive amount of PPD, it is going to be a while.

    Thanks for confirming. It's been broken a while, I was hoping the magic repair fairies would be invoked. Guess not. :)

    Well...I rarely check the stats on their page. I typically use Free-DC's stats. But, they have stats export issues quite regular...almost a monthly basis.
