A team dedicated to the users of FreeBSD running BOINC under linux compatibility mode, or a native FreeBSD BOINC build. Team FreeBSD is dedicated to users of FreeBSD, but not limited to JUST the users. Anyone with the interest in developing a community of people interested in technology, open standards, NIX or BSD based operating systems are welcome and encouraged to earn credits and share ideas and conversation.



For those of you wondering what the EINSTEIN@HOME Project is:

Einstein@Home uses your computer's idle time to search for weak astrophysical signals from spinning neutron stars (also called pulsars) using data from the LIGO gravitational-wave detectors, the Arecibo radio telescope, and the Fermi gamma-ray satellite. Einstein@Home volunteers have already discovered more than a dozen new neutron stars, and we hope to find many more in the future. If you want to participate, please follow the "Join Team FreeBSD" instructions below. It takes just a minute or two to sign up, and little or no maintenance to keep Einstein@Home running. Einstein@Home is available for Windows, Linux and Macintosh OS X computers, and Android devices.

Einstein@Home at UWM.EDU Website Relaunch

21 July, 2016 12:27 CST6CDT

Einstein@Home will be re-launching their website with a modern content management system.  This means that many links on the FreeBSD team page (this website) will break and may return a 404 if they are not redirected.

The Einstein@Home website developers/maintainers will likely make additional changes to resources after the initial migration to Drupal including the BOINC related pages and layout.  I will try to keep up with the changes of locations on this site but it may take time.

I believe this will help the Einstein@Home project in a whole.  More visitors will be attracted to the information related to the project and should also have a more pleasant experience with the process of getting involved.

This is their release plan:

  • July 20th: first public announcement
  • July 25th: release plan update / heads-up
  • July 29th: final heads-up
  • August 1st-5th: website downtime / data migration / relaunch

Please be aware that the UWM Einstein@Home website will not be available during the first week of August and possibly longer depending on the state of the website migration.

Gravitational Waves Explained

09 July, 2016 02:13 CST6CDT

Henry Reich from the YouTube channel minutephysics has released a new video about gravitational wave basics. It explains how gravitational waves are generated, why we need very, very sensitive detectors like the Advanced LIGO instruments and how everybody can help searching for gravitational waves. You guessed it: by running Einstein@Home. - New minutephysics video about gravitational waves and Einstein@Home

''It would be possible to describe everything scientifically, but it would make no sense; it would be without meaning, as if you described a Beethoven symphony as a variation of wave pressure'' -- Albert Einstein

My name is Andy Wright - the founder, but really the creator of Team FreeBSD. If you want me to add any links, or have any questions or inclinations for such things related to our group (or to just say hi) - send me an e-mail: einstein@extracted.org or irc://myside@irc.freenode.net

Pluto's 'heart' sheds light on possible buried ocean
Ever since NASA's New Horizons spacecraft flew by Pluto last year, evidence has been mounting that the dwarf planet may have a liquid ocean beneath its icy shell. Now, by modeling the impact dynamics that created a massive crater on Pluto's surface, a team of researchers has made a new estimate of how thick that liquid layer might be.

ALMA Explores the Hubble Ultra Deep Field: Deepest ever millimeter observations of early Universe
International teams of astronomers have used the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) to explore the distant corner of the Universe first revealed in the iconic images of the Hubble Ultra Deep Field (HUDF). These new ALMA observations are significantly deeper and sharper than previous surveys at millimetre wavelengths. They clearly show how the rate of star formation in young galaxies is closely related to their total mass in stars. They also trace the previously unknown abundance of star-forming gas at different points in time, providing new insights into the “Golden Age” of galaxy formation approximately 10 billion years ago.

UWM networking maintenance

There is a need to upgrade the networking equipment at UWM and we want to do so before the new Web site launch. As a result, the Einstein@Home project will be down on Monday July 25, 2016; starting at 1300 UTC. That's 1500 for most Europeans and 0900 for East-coast North America. It's our hope that the network downtime will be less than 20 minutes.

During this time the Einstein@Home project will be off and the Web site will be unavailable.
