In 2004, Neil Munday created a site - see seti.mundayweb.com Archived Page Here - for the many thousands of SETI@home crunchers around the world to provide us with stats graphic counters for SETI@home.
Soon after the birth of BOINC, Neil started making stat signatures available for all BOINC projects - see boinc.mundayweb.com Archived Page Here -
2021 introduces some unexpected excitement for Neil Munday.

Disappointingly, my web host has said they cannot increase my database limit which is disappointing. For historical reasons, each BOINC project is stored in its own database, mainly for manageability. However, due to the rise in projects I've now got over 180 databases.
I'll see if I can move to a one database schema instead but it's going to take some time and effort to consolidate the records into one database and to update the various bits of code.
For now I will add any new projects to my stats server (it's separate from the web server) so that the records are are least being saved somewhere for later use.

Unfortunately I have hit my web host's database limit. Since the site's creation in 2004 the number of projects has grown considerably. I will need to re-design the database backend in order to be able to cope with more projects. This as you can imagine will take some time and effort. Watch this space.

Just an update.
I've got a test version of the site up and running with the new database schema.
I'm now working on a new version of the stats update script to make use of the new schema.
Also an ideal opportunity to convert the code from Perl to Python and modernise it a bit.
The code was written largely in 2004/2005 but it has lasted well.
