Puzzle 1311 and 1312 Update

(Straight from free_radical)
Hello everyone,

We are sorry that puzzle 1311 is causing some clients to crash. It has been mentioned by Susume that setting the graph memory usage to less than 100% might solve crashes.

However, given that the puzzle crashes randomly for some people, we have decided to release a monomer version of puzzle 1311. We will use both answers from 1311 and 1312 to help resolve phase data. We want everyone to get a chance to play the puzzle and this is one solution.

Tuberculosis Challenge – Alternate Target Update

Tuberculosis (TB) is a disease that affects millions of people. We have posted a protein drug target puzzle previously on this topic. In our continued effort to make a dent in this disease, we have also partnered with the Sacchettini lab at Texas A&M University to post another drug target puzzle for TB. While we originally had a puzzle posted yesterday, this puzzle will be updated and reposted as soon as possible. Sorry for the delay.

In the meantime you can read about the puzzle here.

Server Downtime - The Move to Amazon!

Hey everyone, we have some exciting news - we are moving our servers to Amazon!

We took steps earlier this year to try and minimize the downtime from this move, but it looks like we are going to need more.

We've scheduled the move for next Wednesday, November 16th at 3 PM PST (11 PM GMT). All puzzles will end at this time, and we'll be down for 24-48 hours, depending on any issues.

As a result of this move, our servers will now be located on the East Coast of the USA, which should improve connectivity and latency for most of our players. We should also be less affected by outages with the better reliability of Amazon Web Services.

A big thanks to Amazon for helping to make this happen!
