So here is the FB sprint date list for 2019.
It looks to be the same as previous years with 24 hour notice give prior to the "official" start of the race.

Here we go! Unfortunately I am down on CPU power from last year. I'm pressing a couple of i7 laptops into service to try to make up for it, lol.

Hi @yodap! Well, it's still 77:66 for you just from the marathons.

This could be a crowded league this year. As far as I recall, these teams of 2019's league 1 were active in the 2018 sprints:

BOINC@AUSTRALIA​
Crunching@EVGA​
Czech National Team​
[H]ard|OCP​
L'Alliance Francophone​
Overclock.net​
Planet 3DNow!​
Rechenkraft.net​
SETI.USA​
TeAm AnandTech​
UK BOINC Team​
XtremeSystems​

I was trying to let some stuck downloads finish and ending up letting a bunch of work go early instead...:flushed:

OcUK returned to Formula BOINC. :-)

---
Edit: Spying on a few other forums, I see discussions of the GDPR switch. But as far as I can tell, this switch does not have effect on team credits, and hence not on Formula Boinc ranking. (E.g., we saw occasionally in Tony's weekly stats how team credits/week and user credits/week went different ways before and after users flipped the switch.)

We're in 5th at the moment, and given the competition, I think we'd be doing well to finish 5th, what do you guys think?

Hopefully, the coiners will get distracted and we'll get fourth. Fifth would be a good start, though.

Day one of Numberfields and we are in 5th. This is going to be a tough field this year. We can get some podium finishes though, I'm confident.:D

From FreeDC.
Day one finds Tony in the pole position, albeit barely. emoga and crashtech are not far behind. biodoc seems to have a lock on 4th for the moment and Ken_g6 is sure to give the Kid? (old man) a run for 5th. Howdy seems to be off to a slow start as is that xii5ku guy. They are sure to shake things up as we continue. Not to be forgotten, zzuupp could be a spoiler in the OK - Kg6 race. Time will tell.

I looked at the Free-DC stats last night and it showed @Ken g6 with over a half million points for the day. Ken, did you do all those points in 24 hours, or gamble on the Sprint selection and win? Impressive either way!

He probably activated his privacy settings.
Interestingly, boincstats does not appear to be affected by this. (Link: Ken_g6's last 40 days at NumberFields according to boincstats.) I wonder if they implemented special handling of this case.

Edit:
We advanced from 16th to 13th in the NF marathon. Are we going to make it into the top ten of the marathon by the end of the sprint?

Day Two of Numberfields. Holding firm in 5th, can we muster enough for 4th? Day three could be exciting.:D

From FreeDC: updated daily?
Day Two;
Tony hangs on to his lead as crashtech makes a pass on emoga for second.
Howdy2u2 says bye bye and moves up to 5th place passing Ken and Orange. xii5ku slowly overtakes zzuupp for 8th. What will the finish look like? Pedal to the metal all.:eek:
