looks like you sorted it out.
The DDM website departs from the standard BOINC layout in a number of ways. You can only chose your team once you are fully logged in to your account details.

Yeah, got it sorted. First unit failed completely too as you need Java to run DDM too. Working now, so will add a few credits to make us safer.

Cheers. I was doing some DDm but Simap decided to have a few months of constant running.

Its bit of a pain, as you have to update your settings every time you upgrade Java :-(

How do you join this project? Can someone who has an account post a question in their forum about whether they are going enable new users to join?

I have sent a pm to Nico to ask why account creation appears to be disabled. I know a while back the forum was swamped with spam bots, maybe he turned it off then ? Any hoo I will attempt to let you know when I get a reply.

You should now be able to create an account through the boinc manager or bam manager. Account creation is still disabled through the website due to immediate spam account creation attack.

The DistributedDataMining project is shutting down!
Dear ddm users,
we had a good run during the last years and the computing power which you provided enabled many researchers to achieve there scientific goals.

Unfortunately, I wasn't able to invest as much time as I wanted into maintaining the ddm project and although the BOINC client was working fine most of the time, the page had more and more problems which were not addressed properly. I was thinking about shuting down the project many times but there was never the right moment.

Recently, this changed when a critical vulnerability of the Drupal content management system was publicly announced. Since the ddm website was running an old version of Drupal, no fix is available for this issue. As a consequence, I took the website down. There are no indications that the vulnerability was exploited. The actual BOINC server is running on a different machine and would not have been effected anyway.

I had the choice between (1) updating to the latest Drupal version including the time consuming re-integration of all the BOINC features and (2) shutting down the project for good. I decided that this is the right moment to let it come to an end. I simply do not have the time to operate the project in the way that you would deserve.

From now on, no new workunits will be generated. The remaining units will be distributed to the BOINC clients and the incomming results will be processed as usuall. The BOINC statistics which are frequently crawled by multiple websites will stay online for a while, so that your credits won't be lost.

Thank you for your understanding and all your support during the last years.

Best regards,
Nico
