Here is the poll for the January 2008-project for TAS!

I have made a somewhat unusual poll:

The 1st option: should we take part in the race against Free-DC in SoB?
The 2nd option: should we crunch a BOINC-project?
The 3rd option: should we crunch an other non-BOINC-project?

If the 2nd or 3rd options together have 8 votes or more, I'll put up a new poll accordingly.

Please vote as soon as you can.

We are TAS, <<The TeAm AnandTech Sentinels, the mini-team which can add tremendous crunching power to any project. Considering that the TeAm in SoB is in a race.
One of the reasons for a sentinel mini team is to help in races ...

TAS has crunched SoB in February 2005. At that time TAS was quite small - many of the current TAS-members came after that date.

Please decide what you want to do and vote, please!

Wow, I am impressed!

The poll has been open for 1 hour and 2 minutes and there are already 5 votes in!
All 5 votes for crunching SoB!

Please continue to vote - you know that I would like to see at least 12, preferably 15 votes from the TAS-membership! :thumbsup:

I voted: 9 for SoB and 1 for something else, tsk! tsk!

Am I allowed use campaign slogans like tsk! tsk! on a voting site? In some countries I could be arrested.

Just now: 9 votes for SoB and 2 for other BOINC-projects.

Yes you are, RT. You can also use other slogans, such as kiss, kiss, kiss! ;)

I have assumed that we are going to Seventeen or Bust and have all my FX-60s going full bore!

Catch me if you can!

If you guys end up helping in SOB here are a few links that might help:

If you want to run more than 1 instance you need to install as a service

Installing as a service in XP instructions can be found in TallBill's daily stats thread, along with the link to SBQueue.
Do yourself a favor & reboot your computer to complete the install. If not you can run into the "Lost test" problem when you do reboot your comp at a later date.
Fix for Lost Proth Test


Vista apparently is more of a pain.

Lost proth test-->vista

Tom Philippart & others may have some tips with Vista.
