    Does anyone here follow this? I noticed that we are placed in a fairly respectable 28th place, I'm sure if we concentrated on other projects where we are not so strong we could improve even more.

    Its in my favourites but I don't spend much time there. Agreed, but we are a relatively small team compared to many, any diverted effort means something else falls a bit. But I have some plans to reinvigorate my flagging Boinc reputation, oh yes. :)

    Considering I'm only a part timer now-a-days, and wouldn't be missed, I'm thinking of having a go at some of these boinc projects where we are placed fairly low to see what difference, if any it makes. I've already started on Yoyo@home where I'm fast becoming the No. 1 ranked OcUK contributor of all time! (there's only five others :D) at least I'll be top at something.

    When I got bored of seti about 3 years ago I went round a few different projects from the list there. You can actually make quite a big difference by running one of the projects where we are ranked very low because even a small contribution moves the team up the ranks very fast. Yoyo@home is a perfect example of that as you can see where you have moved us up 10 places today :D

    Cool! I took a screenshot of the rankings yesterday, both teams above and below us gained 2 points in last 24Hrs, we gained 118 :) spot above us is just under 1000pts away.
    I've been trying Sztaki, points are fairly low per work unit so decided to give it a miss as working our way up through the team rankings would be a bit tougher, I'm going to try WCG as well as yoyo, as we're lagging a bit on that one, see how it goes :)

    It can be amended, but there's not much point really as the newer team is ranked lower, also looking more into how the DC Points system works I've decided it not a project worth me concentrating on, it's very popular so progress would be slow, plus the points per position change are low, currently 0.356896pts whereas yoyo for e.g. is 13.513513pts per position change.

    I'm going to run Correlizer, which is our lowest scoring project, for a few days just to see how much difference it makes :)

    I was looking around the DC Vault Project stats and noticed Correlizer, another team gained a place and in return received 50pts, so that could be a good target, you'll have to let us know how you get on.

    I've been running NFS@home as well as yoyo, that looks like another good one to go for, 18pts per team position change and we're way down in 230 odd with teams just a few hundred points ahead of us and each other.

    I feel a team stomp is imminent :D

    WOW! What an update! 2,243pts :D
    UK Boinc Team well and truly Stomped!, now up to 27th :D

    Nice choice with correlizer Phil, that seems to be where the most progress is to be made. I'll have a break from yoyo & NFS and have a dabble there too.

    I've signed up my laptop to a few more esoteric projects, especially apt as Seti@Home is being flakey

    Probably going to take me a week to complete these GIMPS units.. but will probably give us a nice bump. Time will tell

    Great stuff :)

    Hopefully, GIMPS is now our lowest scoring project, I've noticed that each team position change in that is worth just over 28pts ... look forward to seeing what happens :)

    And we've just had another 2000+ update :cool:

    I'm having a go at RNA World now, should make rapid progress on that, but some of the WUs are really long, and I mean *really* long. Look at this one here I've picked up, and how many people have aborted it. The chap that completed it has been waiting since Jan for it to be validated, it took him over 2 weeks to complete, being nosey I looked at some of the other WUs he's done, the longest I saw took him a month and a half :eek:. It wouldn't be so bad but these WUs have NO checkpoints, only what the boinc client gives, I got up to 9% after well over 24hrs on it, rebooted not knowing and it went back to 2% :mad:

    But on the bright side we're just over 2K points behind 26th :)
