Does that mean, as long as we don't update our browsers, we will be able to continue folding on NaCl? :D
That would be good news, as my company pc hardly ever gets updated aside from security patches.

Maybe, but I doubt it.

FAH's infrastructure is all about how the various FAH servers talk to each other. I have no idea when those changes may happen, but probably "soon"

That's bad news, only way to folding at work was Nacl. I really hope that an webassembly version is implemented.

I'm certain that
1) a Webassembly version will NOT be written (per the end-of-life announcement)
and
2) Even if it were, it wouldn't help because the infrastructure changes still wouldn't be implemented.

... sorry, but FAH was intended for "At Home" and not for "At Work"

According to "Server Stats," core GRO_B0_NACL has been removed from all WS. Today, for 8 hours, I have no assigned WU.
Is this the "End-Of-Life" of NaCl?

Apparently yes, it's over.

Yes,

Code: Select all

Requesting a work server assignment.
That's all we're getting.
It was good for how long it lasted.
Now I'll just have to bring my portable unit to work again.
