No. But there does appear to be something up with DNS in general. Possibly another DDOS by friends of Syria....

OK... Confirmed... It's a DDOS against (at least) my DNS host provider. They are "working the problem"... DNS resolution for (at least) gpu72.com is likely to be intermittent for a while.

For those it might help (e.g. an entry in /etc/hosts), www.gpu72.com, gpu72.com and gimps.gpu72.com all resolve to 74.208.185.233.

OK, I've just receiving notification from my DNS provider that the DDOS has finally been successfully blocked. (At least, for now....)

I'm having problems reporting manual results (from GPU to 72) on http://www.mersenne.org/manual_result/default.php

Specifically, the site seems to hang when I report a found factor, but nofactor lines succeed. I've tried both using the text area and uploading a file with similar results. I have not seen the found factor reflected in either my account's results or the exponent status page.

Has anyone else seen this issue?

This issue happens on occasion when the factor checking script breaks (all factor found results are checked by the server)

I'm pretty sure it'll be fixed within 24 hours, just hold on to your results for now.

i experience several CGI timeouts while trying to get 1000 TFjobs in a single request.

the last timeout fault happened when I tried to get 10,000 TFs.

Why not store the assigned jobs into a text file? then let user download it?

BTW:
I also found your server is based on Windows IIS!!!!!????
How do you think it is reliable to handle thousands and thousands requests per day!??
Just set the limit to CGI request/handle?
Also, CGI???

I cannot believe that!!!

Being that this is a Windows-based server, perhaps somewhat smaller requests would be in order, eh? The same is certainly true of results submissions.

I am in no position to address the "why" of it all. However, that's the way it is. Best deal with it.

Keep in mind that GIMPS and PrimeNet are run by volunteers, not full-time commercial server professionals (AFAIK).

If you can add server expertise, will you volunteer to help?
