What, he's asking you to edit a thread here on Anandtech? Why doesn't he register and post his opinion here, then?

What a laugh. I get up this morning and out of curiosity I check the FB page to see if there is a sprint....

World Community Grid is the sprint, I guess we are in and there will be stats. :laughing::laughing::laughing::laughing::laughing:

It's almost like they did that just to mess with us. I can appreciate the humor better now that I have stopped caring.

Well, is @Fardringle still on the steering committee? It would make sense for him to vote for the project he already picked here.

Shh! You'll reveal the secret! :oops:

Actually, since the FB site has been broken for a while, I didn't even know which project had been chosen until very recently. And the way the selection is being done now, the committee won't know the final choice before anyone else (except Sebastien) does.

We chose WCG for the team event while FB was offline so it couldn't have been intentional anyway...

Yeah, the new selection system still isn't 100% perfect, but at least nobody can know what the project is ahead of time any more, and there shouldn't be any problems with projects being selected that cannot handle a sprint...

Anyway, I won't be running this sprint. I'm not opposed to PrimeGrid, but I just got a large batch of tasks from the "ghost" project NanoHUB so I'm going to be working on those instead. :cool:
