Message 982 - Posted: 14 Oct 2014, 10:03:42 UTC

In the morning (European time) of 15th October we will move ATLAS@home to a new Boinc server. This means there will be a short maintenance period of around one hour. All existing users, results, credits etc will be moved to the new server and so no client changes are required. The DNS alias atlasathome.cern.ch will change to point to the new server and this could take a few hours to propagate through the system. In case of any problems try removing and re-attaching the project.

This move is part of integrating ATLAS@home into CERN's existing infrastructure for LHC@home apps, and so the appearance of ATLAS@home webpages will change to match the LHC@home style. All the content in the old site (message boards etc) will still be available but the look and feel will be different.

Which browser are you using? I guess Opera. That kind of behaviour should be impossible as it is one element and it should not be possible for one element to expand like that on multiple lines. This is a bug in Opera that I have seen.

With Opera 12.16 it looks fine.

Hi Yeti,
I had this when vLHC changed to this page layout but managed to fix it quite easily.....if only I could remember how.
Might have been screen resolution or some setting in IE.
I'll post back when I find the solution as I remember mentioning it in either a post or e-mail.
