    Must I be the first one to point out that our team rank is prime? :cocktail:

    As promised, xii5ku is being consigned to community service at WCG now. I sentenced him to 10 days crunching OpenZika on all of the nodes which he used during the PG race.

    As always, thanks Ken for organizing and updating us.

    Surprisingly, the old X6 did ok crunching PG. Just uses a lot of power. :p

    I missed this one, but come March 10th I'll have 12 Westmere cores ready to add to our team totals.

    In case you were wondering, PrimeGrid races are indefinitely delayed. The next race will not start on March 10. April is likely also out. It's hard to say beyond that.

    Maybe we should try FormulaBOINC racing instead?

    Well, that is really the only time I run PrimeGrid :(
    I guess I'll focus more on the FB 3day sprints. It breaks up the monotony of just running a project here and there. Gives a little excitement. Guess I need a lifeo_O:eek:
