QCN is Moving (Again)!
QCN will be moving in June 2016 to a new (hopefully permanent) home based at the University of Southern California (USC) and supported by IRIS (the Incorporated Research Institutions for Seismology) and the SCEC (Southern California Earthquake Center). There may be unexpected "down time" as the data and web addresses are moved to quakecatcher.net. If all goes well you shouldn't have to change your BOINC program, as the web name server (DNS) should resolve to our new server when it's all setup. If you're not afraid with BOINC, you may wish to (when the time comes) "Detach Project" and then "Attach Project" to http://quakecatcher.net/continual

There will also be new client programs compiled to reflect our new home and support; and hopefully update any drivers, bug fixes etc.

QCN Move to CalTech Week of July 13th, 2015
The QCN servers will be packed up at Stanford next Monday (July 13th) and FedEx'd overnight to CalTech. It is hoped that by the end of next week the servers will be online at CalTech and the project will begin running again. We are forwarding our Internet DNS from Stanford to CalTech so that machines connected to "qcn.stanford.edu" will be routed to the new server location automatically (probably qcn.caltech.edu). More information will be sent once things are back up and running - but it's most likely the project will be down the week of July 13th. You shouldn't have to do anything - BOINC will automatically connect once it detects the servers are back up. 7 Jul 2015, 16:56:18 UTC · Comment

Possible Error With Some Workunits & New BOINC Version
It looks like the new BOINC version (7.0.25) will crash on some of our workunits that had a typo in one of the tags. The symptom is errors like this in the 'Event Log' of the BOINC Manager:

Thu Apr 19 21:27:18 2012 | QCN Continual | [error] Can't parse application version in scheduler reply: unexpected XML tag or syntax Thu Apr 19 21:27:18 2012 | QCN Continual | [error] No close tag in scheduler reply

If you see the above errors (or aren't getting new workunits) simply hit the "Reset Project" button in the BOINC Manager and it should fix the problem. 20 Apr 2012, 1:34:13 UTC · Comment

QCN Continual Project Reminder
Please note that this is a special project of QCN which will record and upload your sensor data "round-the-clock" ie as long as your computer is running. This project has been setup only for high-risk/high-activity areas such as in California or ChristChurch, New Zealand or Chile. If you are not in such an area, you probably want to "Remove" this project and "Attach" to the regular QCN project (which just reports seismic triggers or events). That project URL is: http://qcn.stanford.edu/sensor
