Quote from: "STC"
Farewell, farewell! but this I tell
To thee, thou Wedding-Guest!
He prayeth well, who loveth well
Both man and bird and beast.

He prayeth best, who loveth best
All things both great and small;
For the dear God who loveth us,
He made and loveth all.

The Mariner, whose eye is bright,
Whose beard with age is hoar,
Is gone: and now the Wedding-Guest
Turned from the bridegroom's door.

He went like one that hath been stunned,
And is of sense forlorn:
A sadder and a wiser man,
He rose the morrow morn.


We certainly are a bit sadder, I hope we're wiser as well...

I can certainly understand the sadness.  Rejoice in knowing that the project achieved its purpose and that it was a success.  Go out, pat yourself on the back, and treat yourselves to a nice lunch/dinner and a good beverage of your choice.

Indeed. I even spent a couple days there. Sorry to hear about those who spent much time there, yet, you all did a terrific job there. All of you deserve many kudos!  Thumbs Up

Is there any clear information about:
  • how long the forum will stay up
  • how long will the server keep accepting results
  • if user info & stats will be kept just in case

Huh???

From the FAQ page --
(my bold)
Why is Find-a-Drug ending?
 We have processed more than the 250 queries we originally envisaged. We have also targetted most of the recognised protein targets for the major project areas. Where we have been able to obtain experimental data to confirm biological activity, the predictions have exceeded our expectations.
We have concluded that there are insufficient worthwhile protein queries to continue the project into 2006 and have decided to close the project on 16 December 2005. We will continue to make some new queries available over the coming weeks but will not accept results after the close of the project.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 
 Will the forum be available after the project ends?
 We see no reason to close it on the 16 December but we do not envisage it to remain available for weeks. Thereafter we will use a notice page at all the usual website addresses.

We still don't have a fixed date for stopping accepting results.  I anticipate that it will be around 9 January.  The websites will remain active after that date.

So I'm just going to do what Fluffy said HERE
Quote from: "FluffyChicken"
Well if you download a bunch of these jobs, set your computer to Connection = None, then just let it run until early Jan 2006, send in the results then.
Note the client will keep adding jobs if you crunch all the downloaded (actually better would be to do the download Sunday Night so as not to get the auto uninstall).

Server will be accepting till begining of Jan at the moment Wink

....and try to finish off the final Methodology/Cancer jobs.

I just got Microsofts Service Pack 4 installed automatically.
I hope this doesn't screw up the automatic uninstall.
