The seventh BOINC Pentathlon is around the corner. As usual, SETI.Germany invites all BOINC teams to find out which team copes best with the challenges of five disciplines at five projects between May 5 and May 19.

While there are no major rule changes this year, it is ensured that there will be only one winner after the shared gold medal last year. Furthermore, the Pentathlon pages have undergone an optical refresh, all the rules and later on the stats are there, as well. Many questions are answered in the FAQ.

Each team that wants to participate can sign up and enter four project suggestions using this registration form until April 27. Later registration is possible until May 2, but without the possibility of suggesting projects.

Therefore, explore the interest within your team and sign up. We're looking forward to your participation in the BOINC Pentathlon!

Hi Patrick,

You'll provide challenge statistics for the Pentathlon like every year,
but I and maybe others can't access www.seti-germany.de for several days now.
IP is pingable, but with Chrome web-browser I get:


This site can’t be reached

www.seti-germany.de refused to connect.

With IE your team page is also not accessible.

Unfortunately, our server was hacked on Saturday and we do not know yet when everything will be back online. Of course, we do not want to bring it back up just to see it being hacked again during the Pentathlon. Additional security measures are being implemented right now.

I really feel bad to have to say this, but we will have to postpone this year's Pentathlon to make sure that we can provide the usual service (stats, daily bulletin, project announcements) and all teams have the opportunity to sign up. We can not give a new date right now, but we hope that we can run it still in May or early June, as we definitely want to avoid the hot summer months.

We will post a proper announcement as soon as we have a new date. Really sorry for the chaos this year.

I have an older server lying around the house which is not used anymore. I don't know what hardware you need and if it would even be possible to get your software running on it but if you wish a can install it with Ubuntu server (14 or 16), put it in the BOINCstats rack and make it accessible to you.

It's an AMD X2 (3800+ I think) with 4GB RAM. I can put some old BS SSDs in it I think (have to look for 2,5->3,5" adapters). It's been turned off for some time so it may not start.

Could get you going quickly and later you move back to your own server.

Let me know if I should do something with it.

Edit: if we do this, I won't install PHPBB on it. That got me hacked a few years ago.
Please do not PM, IM or email me for support (they will go unread/ignored). Use the forum for support.

Hi Willy and CP,

thank you for your kind offers. We had considered an external solution but decided against it for now, because it now appears more a matter of days rather than weeks until our forum and the Pentathlon pages are back online. We likely would have had to postpone the Pentathlon anyway, as a backup solution would not have been set up in time for all the interested teams to sign up.

I'll let you know if something happens that changes our minds and we need your help.

Dear fellow crunchers,

after the Pentathlon pages had been offline for one week, the BOINC Pentathlon 2016 has now been rescheduled to start one month later, i.e. on 05 June 2016 (see also this announcement). Registration for teams that wanted to participate but could not sign up in time is open again until 28 May.

HUGE ups to 3D

Cant help but consider this an upset. Another shout out to OCN and CNT. Like the way you guys go about your business without the raw crunching power of some other teams.

Had a great time and look forward to next year! Special thanks to Seti-Germany for hosting the best challenge in all of BOINCdom.

Beware, however, might bring another P4 and a few more Androids next year.
