Hails and Farewells
First off, we are sad to announce that Tom has had a great job offer and has recently left the MindModeling development team. However, Tom's love for the project has not changed and will be transitioning to 'volunteer contributor/moderator' status. You may still see him on the forums from time to time.
Tom has been an extremely valued team member: leading efforts on both server-side and client-side programming as well as being our primary support to our volunteer contributors. His presence has been (and will be) greatly missed, but we are excited for Tom in his new job.
All The Best and Happy Crunching Tom!
We would like to welcome and introduce two new members of the MindModeling team: Brandon and Nathan.
Brandon has taken over the responsibility of being primary support to our volunteer contributors, so you'll see him popping up on the news feed and in the forum.
Nathan has taken over a lot of our (internal and external) website design and feature development.
We are very excited to have these two programmers on board!

CogSci 2014, the annual meeting of the cognitive science society, held its 36th annual meeting this year in Quebec City, Canada
The theme was:
"Cognitive Science Meets Artificial Intelligence: Human and Artificial Agents in Interactive Contexts"
Many MindModeling researchers were both presenting their research and interacting with other cognitive scientists from all other the world at this event.

Temporary Suspension of Work
We're temporarily suspending our BOINC feeder while we deploy new versions of all our applications. It shouldn't take more than a couple of hours. I'll keep you posted.

Power Shutdown this Saturday (2014-03-08)
I apologize for the late notice, but I just received word that the Wright State University Engineering building where the MindModeling servers are located will be shut down temporarily this Saturday 2014-03-08 from 0700-1200 EST. I will be turning off our servers several hours in advance to facilitate a graceful shutdown. During this period, you will not be able to access our scheduler, this website, etc. There is a chance that I may not be able to remotely power-on the devices, in which case we will not have access again until the following Monday.

MindModeling Server Migration
This morning we migrated our production system from it's home at the University of Dayton to it's new location at Wright State University. This allowed us to:
- Completely decouple our development and production systems
- Increase RAM, disk space, CPU cores, and I/O performance

If you experience any issues, please report them to the forums and we'll address them as soon as possible. However, I suspect a quick reset or detach/reattach of the project may fix a lot of problems, so give that a try first.
And as always, thanks for providing all of the invaluable resources to furthering cognitive modeling research. We've had an incredible couple of months, crunching 127,400+ days worth of computations, and it couldn't have been done without you!
Looking ahead, we should have a new web interface deployed soon and a new version of our CCL wrapper.
