Farewell, SIMAP.

Post by UBT - Chris Suddick » Tue Jul 01, 2014 8:35 am

SIMAP will leave BOINC by end of 2014 SIMAP is currently moving towards new algorithms for similarity calculations and scoring. After extensive tests and evaluations during the last months it turned out that the best way to continue SIMAP will be to use dedicated local hardware in our institute. SIMAP will therefore use BOINC only to maintain the current SIMAP database until the end of 2014. BOINC clients for the new SIMAP database will not be released and there will be no workunits for SIMAP after 2014. After 10 very successful years of SIMAP within BOINC this decision was not an easy one for us. However, we thank all users for their support in the past and in the upcoming last period until the end of the year.
My favourite project  :cry:

Hi Chris,

Thanks for the heads-up on this - I'd missed their announcement (though I was away at the time, so I think I can be excused !!).

Bummer. That was one of my faves too - used to like grabbing a few units as soon as they became available each month.  I had paused it for the WCG challenge but I'll now keep it switched on for the rest of the year and see how much comes through  :cry:

Hi Penny,

I'm the same - used to grab a few WU's though I've not done for a while, as other projects seemed to be a bit more worthy.

BTW: You might want to change your signature "graphic" as the UBTstats graphics have been broken for a while and I don't think Darren will be fixing it anytime soon.

Take a look at this website and maybe update yours:

and another option could be this one:
