I am looking to gauge the interest of the team in the Formula BOINC competition.

We were pretty active in Formula BOINC in the past, but with the overall slow-down of activity since the site migration, we were basically a non-entity in the competition last year.

Poll is up top, so let me know if you guys want to make a run at getting back into League 1.

What is Formula BOINC?

Formula BOINC is a year long BOINC team competition based on the structure of the Formula 1 Championship.
Points are amassed based on a team's individual project ranking throughout the year and by their ranking in each of the 23 sprints.
See the Formula BOINC home page for a full breakdown of the rules: Formula Boinc


The OCN team was relegated to League 2 for the 2021 season.

Our primary goal for the 2021 season will be to get back up into League 1.

Hey guys. I know I have been MIA recently. I'd love to get back into BOINC a little bit again.

Just a heads up for anyone new to Sidock, there are no checkpoints yet, so do not shut down active tasks. They can be paused and suspended to memory, but if you shut down the client you lose any progress. It used to only be an hour or two on the old tasks, but the new batch is running much longer.

How do I get an invite to SiDock? also, what projects need running? I've been mostly running the COVID tasks on and off the past year from Rosetta, GPUGrid and WCG.

The invitation code is: Crunch_4Science

I cant remember if I had to create my account at their website or through boinc manager
Pretty sure it was through their website because that's where I learned about the invitation code. I tried it through BoincTasks/Boinc at first and it said something like I had to go to the website to sign up.

I thought this project was removed from Sprints, the 3rd post on the FB forum about 2021 projects even mentioned it. I can't even attach. I'm not a fan of the admin anyway. several projects for the same thing instead of just another app. And also encouraged members to leave another project while admin was having issues.

Edit: Amazing how a couple crunchers have no credit before the 24th, then a bunch on 24th and 25th yet the project was announced on 3am UTC of the 25th.

Yup switched my focus to doing some mods and maintenance to the rigs. Had to do a fresh install of Ubuntu on one, after upgrading from 16 to 18 to 20.04 I was having a few issues. Now im modding the tech station for the 2P rig, so I dont have to run it on a motherboard box anymore and I can also get some fans on it more securely....haha
