What is this event all about?

Quote:
Just like in ancient Greece we'll also perform this BOINC Pentathlon by running 5 different disciplines. This means within 2 weeks the participants will need to crunch 5 different projects, each for 5 days.

Every discipline will run for 5 days and is going to be announced 5 days (Sprint: 3 days) before it will start, therefore no team will know the entire sequence of the Pentathlon right from the beginning!

The team achieving the most points in all disciplines will win the BOINC Pentathlon. But of course there will also be a winner chosen for each single discipline
New to BOINC?

Check out the BOINC Essentials Thread for information about BOINC, how to install and use the BOINC Manager client and what projects are available to crunch work units for on the BOINC platform.

This should make it easy for those that are unsure if to sign up for the Pentathlon (when that signup form goes online) and help out OCN or not.

Should you sign up and help OCN win the Pentathlon?



Even if you only have 1 graphic card?



Even if the only CPU you have is a Sempron?
