I usually don't come into others forums and make requests.

But we have a situation that I feel requires it.

Your Boinc brethren are locked in a battle with the other boinc teams. Now I know that most of you prefer the ideals of folding over the rough and tumble world of boincing. But we as a team are standing in the position to achieve our greatest height in the annual Boinc Pentathlon

I don't have anything to offer but am asking for your help. just three days Boincing.

The Einstein program mapping the galaxy...... Current;y we are #1 in the project and #3 overall but by a razor margin......

Could you please come and help? It's only three days less than three days now for the Einstein portion of the contest.

Not trying to recruit you to convert to boinc, just add your equipment to the pile trying to win a gold medal.....

I won't take up anymore of your time. But your boinc Brethren would be most appreciative of any and all help you can offer.

If this isn't allowed or the wrong place to post such I apologise.

Sincerely

Egilman, ("EG") in the boinc world.....

Thank you for your time.

I don't see a problem with your post here. @lanofsong has been doing some recruiting on the folding team including a mass PM and many hardware threads and also don't see a problem with that. smile.gif

Don't walk behind me; I may not lead. Don't walk in front of me; I may not follow. Just walk beside me and be my friend.

Yup - spammed the Foldathon user group a couple of times - 350+ members and contacted the Team BBQ group.

Yes we will - OCN - FTW

 

 

BTW Foldathon participants, there is still plenty of time left in this event, so pop on over to the Boinc section and sign up.

No. The thread should be up soon and posted by @PR-Imagery.

The GPU event is over but we could still use some CPU power. Cosmology, YoYo and LHC are the projects. If you're into science stuff like Cosmology and the Large Hadron Collider this would be a good opportunity to help crunch some data for them.

Thanks to the help from the members of our [email protected] community. OCN took home the gold medal in the Cross Country event of the Pentathlon

Time to get my GPUs back on [email protected] for a while thumb.gif


As mentioned, there is still plenty of opportunity to help out in the CPU races if you are interested.
