I want to take down overclockers.com quite bad myself.
BOINC Australia, are you serious? Come on guys, we can beat them.
Oh, and as to my take on Captains??? that gave me a laugh. I say we do Czars to keep up with the times.
Big props to Gamer for his tenacity, Bale GRunions and everyone else for helping make this happen....
And Mort of course for bringing it all home for us.....
To all of OCN, if you thought the Chimp Challenge was fun... think of BOINC as a constant Chimp Challenge.....the stats pages are amazing...we can make all kinds of contests..
BOINC for the people, BOINC for the people who can't BOINC. BOINC because it's a funny name, and makes you think juvenile thoughts.
I BOINC because I want to be one who either:
a.)picks up an alien communication
b.)I've personally modeled the Milkyway galaxy at this point, and I'd like to finish the job.
c.)Quantum computing is cool
d.)find a binary pulsar. I would certainly be cooler than you if I did.
e.)participate in many other altruistic scientific endeavors.
So, you've heard of folding - and now you've heard of BOINC. We crunch it all, there is no limit - only what the scientists put out for us.
Combining our imaginations and hard work with the scientists, will ultimately help everyone. There are almost 2 million BOINCers right now....there could be millions more.
So stop trying for FPS and 3D marks and put your CPU's and GPU's to real
So you've gotten 85 FPS in Heaven, oh wow.....I'm impressed. Not really...you couldn't run Milkyway for 5 minutes without melting your card. Your 4.0 GHz CPu-Z also does not impress me, nor do Pi times for the same reasons. And Furmark?? That's just dumb considering Milkyway does the exact same thing. If I'm to burn out a card, I'd feel much better about myself if it went doing something good versus melting it during a benchmark.
We BOINCer's arguably have more stable systems than most of the OCN community because of the difficulty of maintaining thermal stability while doing these projects
So you think you're a decent overclocker??? Why don't you come join our team tough guys, and see if you can give my 400,000 points a day a challenge. I don't think many of you can. No, I KNOW many of you can't. I will recant this statement only
when my RAC has been surpassed. So what are you all waiting for???
How's that for trash talking. Still friendly since it's a hard sell invite, right???
