If you go to their website, it shows an Apache test page. They had not updated since August 15, and I don't think they've had work since July. I can't find any mention of LHC@Home on the CERN website, either. Has this project been retired?

No, they just don't have any work for now and are migrating the server to somewhere else, afaik somewhere more integrated in the usual CERN environment.

They'll be back some time, it's just not sure when

As I can't post in the Seti Cafe (too low RAC), I congratulate you here for UOTD!

And to keep this on topic:
There are WUs already waiting to be crunched, they only cannot be reached by the clients yet:

Fine to see LHC back in business!

But the Alpha site is still "not found". (Yesterday I was even directed to a site where one could lease or buy the URL of LHCalpha... )

Hope the Alpha project will be coming back, too.

Glad to have some WUs from them, was wondering there myself for a while.

Does anybody have any update on LHC Alpha?

TIA

Seems Willy can add LHC Alpha to the "retired projects".
The alpha-server is still running. But it is hosted on the same machine as the old lhc@home. So when the DNS record for lhc@home was changed alpha became unavailable.
I do not know what the plans are for the future though.

The workunits on alpha has not been important since the very beginning of lhc@home. It is simply the same study run a 100 times. So that we would always have work there.
Alpha was simply kept alive to test updates to webpages, daemons, setup and sixtrack, before they were moved to the main server, thus exposing as few people to the transition problems as possible.

Whether this will be relevant in the future i do not know. Especially when there is no regular admin. We barely have time to work on one system.

I don't expect we'll hear about Alpha in the near future.
