It's that time of year again. Time for the best teams in BOINC to compete for the podium in a 2 week long computer crunching contest. The team who can recruit the most users and shift resources to the correct projects has the advantage of winning it all.

Last year the team, Team AnandTech finished in 2nd place. Just one position away between two disciplines from taking home the Gold. This year, this year let's take home the Gold, shall we?

How can you help? Well, you can setup BOINC (Distributed Computing Software) on your home, your mom's computer, your kids computers, the garage computer, literally every computer you have permission to and crunch the following project for 2 weeks. If not 2 weeks, then just run it as long as you can.

For Windows Computers: https://boinc.berkeley.edu/download.php (You do NOT need the VirtualBox version)
For Linux, Please visit this forum and we will help you get it setup: https://forums.anandtech.com/threads/boinc-pentathlon-2022.2603268/

Once you have installed that software then register an account with the project in the Obstacle Run; Universe@home


After creating the account, attach it to your BOINC software using the login/password you signed up with.

Make sure you join TeAm AnandTech at Universe@home:

Make sure you allow the export of your stats points to 3rd party sites:

"Do you consent to exporting your data to BOINC statistics aggregation Web sites? " Check this. This will let you see your points on 3rd party sites such as https://stats.free-dc.org/team/uni/176

The race officially starts May 5th. I recommend you get setup and crunching right away.
