    I was thinking VTGU & NFS.

    Though having lurked in the TSBT forums I'm leaning towards NFS now as they have brazenly decided to claim the UK No.1 spot from us.
    Whist realistically we won't be able to stop them, unless we have an effort like the Ocuk vs EVGA pogs challenge (4p machines down the back of the sofa) I would like to make it as hard as possible for them.

    We have a 6.5 million cushion in our favour

    Also in our favour is their short attention span, if it takes them any more than a week they'll be climbing the walls :D

    I've got the upgrade itch. I'm waiting to see how much the 8c/16t ryzens are and how they perform.
    But the worst of it is me constantly looking at broadwell oem xeons for crazy money. Initially I dismissed it instantly due to the price but now slowly the idea is creepy into my head :rolleyes:

    In at number 3 :)

    Something has happened to the OcUK header image displayed on the project pages.
    The blue background has gone so the white text of Overclockers is invisible, we are now just UK with a blue/red graphic :eek:

    The forum logo at the top of this page looks OK but when you open it in a new tab it goes all wrong.
    I've captured the logo and uploaded it to picpar, so we can use that one for now.

    Was going through changing the ones I had and checked Gerasim (couldn't remember who had set that up) and they have the old logo with the reflection of the letters on it here... http://gerasim.boinc.ru/img/TeamBanner.ashx?teamid=130

    Any thoughts on changing to that one ?

    Also, do you want to take control of the projects I set up before they ran the Team import script and/or is there a way to get them set up from the default team setup. Have you just changed the 'default' somewhere ?

    These two projects don't show a picture at all...
    https://boinc.drugdiscoveryathome.com/team_display.php?teamid=1171 - doesn't have an image
    http://52.55.66.34/xansons4cod/team_display.php?teamid=60 - shows the word 'image'

    Oh yes, I like that one better. I've uploaded it to picpar again, better than hot linking it to Gerasim.

    No need for me to take control, I know they're in safe hands. The only reason I took control in the first place was when I started getting interested in boinc I noticed that the team founder was Spie on most projects, and he had since sold OcUK and more importantly didn't do any distributed computing at all. Also many of the other team founders were inactive and some had since left our team! So I assumed team founder, not wanting anyone else to do it who had no interest in our team.

    The automatic team set up is done by Boinc Wide Teams https://boinc.berkeley.edu/teams/ The founder of the team there (me in our case) is automatically assigned as team founder to any new Boinc Project. I don't know the ins and outs but sometimes new projects don't use boinc wide, probably the ones you set up as I'm sure if they did it would be automatically overridden by boinc wide.

    I shall amend those.

    I can't imagine he would be the only one, why else would someone take the trouble to download work to their computer and not run it :p
