    Alright alright, I'll stick some cores on here. I now sleep in the same room as my pc though (thanks to impending baby) so can only crunch during the day. How long is left?

    We're currently catching 2nd (Planet 3DNow) at the rate of almost 300k a day.

    Unfortunately, we need to be catching them by more like 800k a day to take 2nd.

    Anyone got enough machines to make up a 500k/day deficit? It's a lot of hardware, but we're currently racking up 1.3m/day, so it's not completely unrealistic. :)

    MORE SPEED CAP'N! MORE SPEED!

    Not sure if this will help anyone but got it working under Ubuntu server 14.04 64bit with this...

    sudo -i
    cd /etc/apt/sources.list.d
    echo "deb http://old-releases.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ raring main restricted universe multiverse" >ia32-libs-raring.list
    apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install gcc-multilib

    gcc-multilib is a bit of a sledgehammer fix (I found that one while looking for the one I used), but if it works, then don't knock it. :)

    Beware that glibc has a DNS-related vulnerability (well publicised, so look it up if you want the gory details). Anyone installing now (at least with 14.04) should get a patched version, but if you've got older Linuxes floating around, be careful.

    I borrowed some cores to try and keep up with PDW but it's not happening.

    There's probably a link to this somewhere but I can't find it so here's the rankings for the challenge taken from BOINCstats. Don't know why Dev or Peter Colbrook are not on there as they are listed as active members on Enigma.
