Pause in Galaxies
They'll be a pause in the galaxy flow for a few days so I can build the latest BOINC server, apply the latest security patches, etc. 16 Jul 2014, 7:27:52 UTC · Comment

More galaxis
We've just released another 2,000+ galaxies 21 Jun 2014, 1:02:48 UTC · Comment

New Galaxies
I'll be loading new galaxies tomorrow - we'll run out during today 20 Jun 2014, 4:04:36 UTC · Comment

Brief pause
We're going to let the current galaxies run out - then do an upgrade of the BOINC software next week.

So once the queue is empty no more work units for a week.
