    Just checking to see who is interested in contributing to the Formula Boinc 2019 season for OcUK ?

    We came second at the end of 2017 in League 2, this thread contains the fun https://forums.overclockers.co.uk/threads/formula-boinc-2017.18763633/

    After a rest during 2018 we are currently 15th in League 1 in the 2019 season

    FB site is here showing our project contributions http://formula-boinc.org/index.py?lang=en&team=399&year=2019

    The FB Sprints are about to start, ties in with Formula 1 races, when extra points towards the team total can be attained if you finish within the top 10.

    The first sprint runs from 14/03/2019 13:00 (UTC) to 17/03/2019 12:59 (UTC) but the project chosen is announced 24 hours before the start at 13/03/2019 13:00 (UTC). That is tomorrow lunch time !

    To contribute you need to be signed up at that project and a member of team OcUK, all credit awarded between the race start and finish times counts.

    Good :)

    The first one has just been announced and it is NumberFields@home so you can download and bunker now.
    Only results returned after the start time tomorrow will count though.

    We are down to 10th now !

    I thought @hanluc might have been around, I saw he'd run down what he had been doing, so either he's going to drop a big bunker in the next couple of days or he's gone away on holiday :p

    Good stuff, the only way is up :)

    We are currently in 14th but now starting to climb towards those above us and a points position :D

    Are you ok Texas ? You haven't posted any points today and I have heard there have been a few weather problems your side of the pond.

    This morning we are in 12th place and moving up :D

    Still no news from @Texas_Connectio :confused:

    @Matzo have you changed your preferences as you didn't appear in the Free-DC stats update today, see post 4 in the thread.

    Less than 4 hours to go...

    No worries, you'll appear tomorrow on Free-DC.
    If you hadn't appeared on the team list at NF I would have chased you :)

    Less than a couple of hours to go and we have moved up to 10th and a point on the board :D
    Not too far behind 9th place either....

    Final results are in and we stayed in 10th, just under 19k behind 9th spot...

    Not bad for a rusty start after a year out.

    Next sprint is less than 2 weeks away and a later start, project will be announced on Wednesday 27th March 9pm.

    I'll put more effort in next time (unless it's GPU) I missed the start and didn't manage to get everything going.
