Service still down. The initial idea about bringing the server back online today isnt going to work (car problems...long story). Instead it will be brought online late Friday the 22th (GMT).
During the weekend the server will undergo several BOINC related software updates. The forums and website will remain online at that time, but you may experience short outtages or temporary error messages while browsing the site.
After that some of the new software for handling frames will be installed. The new software is capable of doing "split-frame rendering" - a way of rendering where each frame is split into several parts and then sent to different computers to speed up the render process.
