Edit: Looks like the DiRT servers are back up now. Phew!
No change in points for the MD5 tasks though. I am Jack's sense of dissapointment.

i switched to poem first day of the bgb and i think im going to keep doing them i sent msgs to both dirt admins and neither will msg me back or even give us updates on the forums about what they are going to do about the points and amd slow downs.

Yeah, I'm a little dissapointed in their lack of response.

To be honest I would prefer to run POEM anyway due to it being a medical project. It is that the money points were just too good that I run DiRT. Up till now that is...

The POEM servers have been low on WUs for a few days, they should send you some tasks if you spam update a few times. Do not worry about the app_info file message, it does that periodically with no effect.

10,130,132,091.02 currently. Can't wait to see where we end up for today. It's going to be crazy!

Always do a clean install of your OS, upgrading just makes the error messages prettier

I'm trying to decide what is making me more nervous, my holding onto a top ten finish in the BGB or the outcome of the rather large popularity contest going on south of the border*.
