1) Message boards : News : PrimeGrid and BOINC are looking for experienced Macintosh Developers (Message 127095)
Posted 182 days ago by Rytis
PrimeGrid is currently looking for a volunteer developer to build, test and maintain Mac apps. The current developer of PrimeGrid (and other applications that are used in the mathematics/prime search world) is no longer able to help us maintain the applications, which means that we may need to drop support for Macs over time (no such changes are planned right now or in the immediate future).

If you are able to help us, please don't hesitate to get in touch.


Moreover, the Berkeley Open Infrastructure for Network Computing (BOINC) open source project, which is the software infrastructure used by PrimeGrid and many other volunteer distributed computing projects, is also looking for volunteers to develop and maintain the BOINC client on Macintosh. The BOINC Client and Manager are C++ cross-platform code supporting MS Windows, Mac, Linux, and several other operating systems. BOINC currently has a number of volunteer developers supporting Windows and Linux, but their main Mac developer is winding down his involvement after many years. He is prepared to help a few new Mac developers get up to speed.

If you have Mac development experience and are interested in volunteering time to help support and maintain the BOINC Mac client please have a look at the more detailed description here: ​https://boinc.berkeley.edu/trac/wiki/MacDeveloper

If you are not a Mac developer, but have other skills and are interested in contributing to BOINC, the link above also has more general information.
2) Message boards : General discussion : Donations from non-Euro EU countries (Message 122892)

You do not need to register with Paysera; if you choose Paysera in the donation page, and enter the amount in the next one, you should then see a list of payments supported in your country. Yes, some countries have just Paysera wallet support - for that you do need to register, but even once you do, you will have some trouble funding your wallet as your country won't have any supported top-up methods...

Thanks - we did get those, thank you for your support! Tallying up donations is a manual process that I just completed, so you should get your crowns very soon.

The new servers are back in their boxes and I'll bring them to the datacenter tomorrow. Thanks to everyone who donated!

Quick update: we now have enough money to pay for the servers - and I just got news they will be delivered to me tomorrow. It will take a while to set things up, but the first major step is done. Expect photos :)

We are now in the next donation progress bar, which covers hosting both servers in the datacenter. It is going to cost us 140€ per month (5000€ for the next three years), so all your help is very much appreciated.

So, 3500€ is accomulated.

Do you mean that it still needs to accomulate 5000€ and then 3500€.
Is this urgent?

3500€ covers the initial server purchase (the servers have been ordered and we're waiting for them to arrive any time now).

We will need to pay 140€/mo for colocation, that's what the second bar of 5000€ covers (we plan for 3 years). So far we don't have money to pay for the first month, but we don't have to... yet. We will need it soon (although not the entire 5000€ amount).

The third bar is the aspirational hardware upgrade/replacement once the warranty of the current servers expire. So again, we don't need it just yet, but we want to plan for the dark day.

Thanks - my bank doesn't even provide the longer version in their information page. Added this information to the donation page.
