DarkRyder's BGB Stats || Countdown to start || Countdown to end || BOINCers Gone Bonkers Group

What is the monthly "BOINCers Gone Bonkers" event about? Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Unlike most Foldathons; this is a 7 day long period where everyone fires up every computer they have, and tries to earn as many credits as they possibly can in an effort to boost our team ranking in both overall ranking and per-project rankings.
It's also a great time to take a break from gaming to increase your credits. Plus, it raises awareness for BOINC and distributed computing as a whole. Getting word out is crucial for the long term stability and success of our BOINC team, and we hope to get some new long term BOINCers in the process.

My computer isn't the fastest, would it still be worthwhile to participate? Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Yes. Unlike [email protected], BOINC has many many projects and applications. If you need assistance on choosing a project for an older computer, start a new thread or post in this thread and we will help you out in choosing the right projects for you.

How do I set up my computers for this? Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
You can use this guide to get BOINC on your system, and choose the projects that you would like to crunch units for. You may also use this guide to use BOINC exclusively on your Graphics card(s).
A list of all Projects can be found here.

I have looked at the list of projects and I am still undecided on what I should run. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Every month, we choose projects to be the Overclock.net Projects of The Month (PoTM). We do this to increase our ranking in those projects. Check that out and consider running those if you are still not sure what to run.
Also remember to join team Overclock.net for each project that you attach to in the BOINC Manager.

I would like to donate a prize Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Here is the guideline:
Typical marketplace rules apply on what can be donated. If you are not allowed to post it on the Overclock.net Marketplace, then it will not be allowed to be placed in the prize pool for BOINCers Gone Bonkers.
You MUST cover the shipping costs if shipping within your country of residence.
Send a Private Message (PM) to one of the BOINC editors with the item that you wish to donate and pics of the item(s) (if possible) or link to the item on the web (if possible) and it's value.

"When" states that we will be boincing backwards in time / boincing an entire year. Might want to change "November" to "December" lol

Otherwise, in as per usual. biggrin.gif

Two, related, questions:

Are there special prizes (such as keyboards / GPUs / African elephant calves) for this BGB?
If so, does the requirement of not having won a prize in the last BGB disqualify you from them?

We are discussing that atm. We'll make a announcement once we fine tune some things.

Then I shall eagerly await your announcement before signing up (solely so I know what to put in the prize entry box).
