    :) Hello all Teammembers of Team techPowerUp !,
    :) Hello all Friends of Team techPowerUp !.


    As since the Year 2009 , we want to build the CHARITY TEAM again !
    I write to tell you that this year`s CHARITY CONTEST will crunch for RNA World .
    The CHARITY CONTEST is a Joint Venture between Team L´Alliance Francophone and Team SETI.Germany , but the CHARITY TEAM , who will be founded a few days before the Contest Starts, by the Admins of L`AF and SG , runs on its own, so the credits archieved will only go to the CHARITY TEAM ACCOUNT .
    We invite you to Crunch with us for 2 weeks together as the Temporary CHARITY TEAM !

    The 4. CHARITY TEAM RACE is from :

    SO 15/01/2012 at 00.01 h - SA 28/01/2012 at 23.59 h MEZ TIME

    SA 14/01/2012 at 23.01 h - SA 28/01/2012 at 22.59 h UTC TIME


    To see what that means to your Timezone, look at : http://www.zeitzonen.de/

    The Forum of CHARITY TEAM you found here : http://forum.charity.boinc-af.org/

    :rolleyes: Sorry I forget, the Forum was of a Server from Team AF , so the Register is in French . This help you for English : http://forum.charity.boinc-af.org/index.php/topic,34.0.html

    :D To Join in the CHARITY TEAM : http://www.rnaworld.de/rnaworld/team_display.php?teamid=1296

    The Idea behind the CHARITY CONTEST is just to bring BOINC Users as much as possible together, to crunch for a Medical/Biological Projekt as a Temporary Team.

    :cool: Greatings to all SEARCHER

    :) Hello again Teammembers and Friends from Team techPowerUp ! ,

    There has been a question regarding the apps to choose for the Race. Here's Norman's reply to SEARCHER :

    English

    Hi Joachim,

    Well, the most popular WUs are cmsearch S as they can be crunched quite quickly and with few ressources.
    Unfortunately, this can result in a shortage on the server.

    Therefore, only cmsearch XXL remains but with longer or a veeeery long runtime and a larger request of RAM. What is funny is that, for many reasons, the apps do not have any checkpoint and the main developers did not find it necessary. The apps have been developed for HPC, not for BOINC, where RAM and duration play no role.
    Only Linux 32bit is writing checkpoints.
    Thus, I'd recommend solid computers, running for a long time and having more than 2 GB of RAM (4 would be better) for the longer WUs.
    Also check "keep apps in memory" in the Boincmanager.
    For the time [of the race] you should also deactivate the Windows updates or put them on manual reboot.
    If you need to shut down your computer(s) overnight, take care to shut it/them down in hibernate modus (write-to-disk).

    Well, yes

    As we only distribute CMSEARCH S AND XXL at the moment, the choice will not be very difficult to make

    kind regards
    Norman

    This as Information for Projekt : RNA World

    The first girl I see in that video reminds me of Rebecca Black and it makes me want to punch her face in.

    THANK YOU and GOOD BYE

    :) Good Morning and Hello Folks,

    the 4. CHARITY TEAM CONTEST 2012 by Project RNA World is finished now. So I think it`s Time now to say THANK YOU ALL for this great Event.

    :D Thank you for the Administrator`s from Team L`Alliance Francophone and Team SETI.Germany who created this CHARITY TEAM CONTEST 2012 .
    :D Thank you for all Helping Hand`s who make Statistics, very nice Logos and many many more.
    :D Thank you for all Participant`s who Crunch the last 2 Weeks by the 4. CHARITY TEAM CONTEST 2012 with us.

    :rolleyes: But by all Happiness, about over 12 Million Credits, the 8. Place by the Team Statistics by RNA World , all Overtakes from another Teams and many many individual Statistics, I think we not forget the biggest Thing by this 4. CHARITY TEAM CONTEST 2012 . In the last 2 Weeks so many Members, from many Teams and many Countrys, Crunch and Fight`s in only ONE TEAM . And we found the last 2 Weeks many new Friends , so I say this was biggest Thing in the last 2. Weeks. And this was THE MESSAGE for the next CHARITY TEAM CONTEST 2013 .

    :( And now I was sad to say you : good bye, au revoir, auf wiedersehen

    :) Hi to all,

    here a new Information from User Cecile from Team SETI.Netherlands :


    Hi Searcher, it will take some time before we can start the gauntlet. The bugs are more persisitent than we hoped. And our big bug-chaser Eesger is very busy with his own company. The crew hopes we can start the gauntlet in April.

    :rolleyes: Good Morning and Hello Team tech Power up!

    here a new Information from User Eesger vom Team SETI. Netherlands :


    Hello all,

    First of all we (the S@NL) team are almost ready for the Gauntlet. It's been a hell of a job, and the Gauntlet hasn't even started yet

    Everything didn't go at the speed we all would like, but (as usual) the problem is that we also have a(nother) life with (other) responsibilities

    Now the statscode and the frontend seem to be ready! Look here : http://www.seti.nl/boinc_team.php?action=showsubteams&gauntlet=1&language=1

    The final date will be set when a small test Gauntlet which will start with the update of today and will end on april second goes as we are hoping....

    Therefore today you can still join the TEST Gauntlet. Then there will not be made any (team)changes until the TEST Gauntlet has ended (2 April 2012). Then we the team will evaluate if everything is ready and set a date for the REAL Gauntlet if everything went as hoped.

    In the mean time other teams and members are offcource welcome!!


    And here a new Posting from User XP_Freak vom Team SETI.Netherlands :

    The test-Gauntlet is running, and all is looking just fine.
