    I'd like to throw out an alternative to OcUK running the Pentathlon this year for yourselves. If OcUK were to crunch the Pentathlon for SUSA I'd be willing to bet that OcUK would find themselves moving up in the Formula BOINC standings :)

    Interested?

    We've got until the 27th to add our project suggestions, 2nd May is the deadline for entry.

    So far we have just one :)

    NFS@home.

    I like numberfields@home, think the admin guy there is really on the ball.
    I think also collatz for gpu

    Anyone else got any other suggestions?

    For me it has to be projects related to desease research or astronomy. I just don't see the point in looking for all this meaningless number stuff. So projects like Pogs, Einstien, Asteroids, Cosmology (although that needs the virtualisation thing that I struggle to get working without killing the computer, Rosetta, WCG, GPUgrid, Denis ....

    Personally I like maths projects, but each to their own.

    It's been Announced that WCG will be one of the projects, with a choice of either
    Fight aids, openzika or mapping cancer markers being chosen.

    Rossetta is not an option as it was ran last year. I don't think that GPUgrid being Nvidia only is not a good candidate and Denis I'm not sure can handle the work. If there's another shout for it I'll add it to the consideration list. We need to pick 3, and one WCG sub project.

    Asteroids
    NFS@home
    Pogs
    Einstein
    Cosmology
    Collatz

    Not all that much. Windows 10 and 6x 4 core instances uses 11GB with a few background programs running, no where near is ludicrous as Atlas or LHC is.

    My preferences would be:

    Amicable Numbers
    NFS
    NumberFields
    TN-Grid
    WCG - MCM

    I can do GPU stuff but I'll not be able to do much CPU stuff, she gets a little toasty. :p

    Only two of the 5 have been announced so far.
    Cross Country is usually the GPU one.
