    What about Denis@home? being as there are so many on it now.
    We could have a week long competition maybe at the end of the month?

    I'm in! Not been involved in a competition for a long time, so am looking forward to this :)

    Looking at the teams that have signed up to the competition, BOINCstats suggests we'll finish a very comfortable second behind SETI.Germany. If we can add a few users to the cause then first place is definitely doable.

    MPG has a 4 cpu amd 64 core set up still ? could ask him, colin is away at work when this takes place so he wont be joining as his wife turns his pc of.
    voicon also has a lot of xeon cores IIRC as does BaBa but hes not around at the minute.

    Is there a core per WU limit on Denis? I can see the deadlines are 10 days old, don't now if it's worth preparing a bunker bomb or just run it normally and build up pending credit.

    I'm getting limited to 14 per thread which would normally sound a lot but given they only last a few minutes it really isn't. They don't all validate immediately but not sure how much they back up though.

    Think if you really want to bunker you would have to set up multiple VMs and run them in there. Even then using all the tricks you know you won't get that many so not really worth it.

    Just hitting the ground running is probably the best plan.

    OK thanks, I'll do that. Probably switch over in the next day or two. I'm just testing out the apps at the moment.
