It seems we run out of work to send today for a second time during this week (last incident happened three days ago) and both of them has been because upstream (distributed.net) keymaster has not send us any work to generate into work units for you to crunch on.

Three days ago the keymaster run out of work (they currently have limited alerts for such issues due to a monitoring server failure) until an operator queued more work and today the keymaster was somehow confused and not sending anything until the same operator restarted the service. So work is getting generated and send to you again.

Also, there has been some total outages earlier that has been due to our primary database server crashing. I'm still trying to figure out what's the exact cause of it's crashing under high load but for now my work a rounds has been keeping it up. If all else fails, I'm going to change server hardware to one that's hopefully more reliable.
