Happy Friday! To give you a comprehensive picture of everything new on Eyewire, here are all changes since the last report a few weeks ago.

  • We have migrated the spawner and RTM (real time mesher) to a more stable cloud-based service to avoid upcoming instability issues with their old server.
  • We have created two separate RTMs for processing e2198 meshes vs. zebrafish meshes. This will help the new service avoid running out of memory for meshing regular Eyewire cubes. As we continue to make mesher improvements, zebrafish meshing may still be slow, and occasionally e2198 will still be affected.

Please note that you will have the smoothest Eyewire experience if you use the most recent 64-bit version of Firefox or Chrome, a recent operating system like macOS Mojave/Windows 10/Ubuntu 19, and a machine with at least 8 GB of RAM.

We’ll catch you again soon. For science!
