I actually want to run Universe at some point to get the 50M and maybe 100M milestones. But my two semi-decent machines are still working through a load of NanoHub tasks so Universe will have to wait until it isn't a sprint. ;)

I'm already running Einstein on my one semi useful GPU, slowly crawling toward the 50M milestone, so I guess I'll go ahead and produce a few points for this sprint... :cool:

My electric bill, even with the new AC and the all time records heat, was only $518 ! So if you need help on some project, I may be able to turn some back on.

We need help on PrimeGrid....

It's not your type of project though, but figured I'd toss it out there anyway.

well, I would in the winter, a few cores, but in the summer, I reserve that for medical stuff.

Why didn't someone tell me Rosetta was the sprint ? !!!! I could have doubled my output to 700k per day.

Sebastien killed FB for me when he clearly expressed being more upset by the users pointing out the obvious cheating than he was by the cheating itself. After that it was impossible for me to trust in his integrity. The impression I got was that in his view, orderly corruption was preferable to chaos.

It's possible that this was just a lapse on his part or just just being exasperated by the vehemence of the protests being lodged against the new committee, but I never saw him walk back or clarify his remarks.

I had a whole bunch of thoughts that I was going to post, but I thought better because of a bit too much (really too much :) ) of alcoholic beverages with very local as in present human friends and really darn tasty food....

I don't like known "cheats", and if a good cheat / workaround is found (good for you and I applaud!, though I don't even know how good cheating can occur as it just irritates me, but whatever! :)) , it should be fixed before the next race.

I don't like team jumping during a race, and I like that the bunkering limits are know before hand, and that there are hard puter start and end timeframe limits for work units know beforehand. And probably many other parameters that I can't remember now. I also am mostly drooketh, but I also don't like events that are more than 10 days or so, but I do like events that make you change poop stuff over the 10 days :) 10 days is a lifetime for me to focus on....

Whatever!

The stats collection. You could be comparing your numbers to those of FB.
Maybe I am not understanding the concept of BoincGames correctly.

I've been running TN-Grid for the last week so I guess I'll keep on it. If my memory serves me right, this project has trouble handling sprints.
