Isn't the VGTU competition over ? If so I am switching to Rosetta now. Let me know if I should bunker, and if so, that start and end time.
I never knew this, you'll have to give me pointers next time its ran.So far I see no opposition to Rosetta, I'd like to think that makes it a definite choice. So now we only need to figure out the remaining projects.
Regarding Rosetta: By default the tasks are set to run for approximately 8 hours. You can change this in your settings on the web page for your account. The way it works is, the task you are processing really doesn't take that long, it just gets processed again and again and again, until the specified time limit is up, then it finishes that final run. The longer the task runs, the more scientific value the result has, as more folding permutations are simulated. But, you can set it to run for as little as one hour, I believe. The points per hour do not seem to vary appreciably, based on whether you let it run for one hour or 72 hours. This makes it a good project for both short duration Sprints, and long duration Marathons.
CSG is missing.Poll posted. Please see OP, which has been edited.
