    Just means that every result we crunch gets us closer to a cure

    Points are related to GFLOPS (I forget the exact ratio atm). If you check the properties of a job in your BOINC Manager you can see the estimated GFLOPS that the job will need in order to complete it. You can use points as a benchmark for long term performance since the faster the cpu the faster the job gets done and more cores mean more jobs, etc..

    Clean energy is as much of a cure as anything else ;)

    The CEP2 project is geared to developing solar panels from organic materials that can be used to power water treatment/waste treatment systems in places where that isn't feasible now :)

    @Norton when is the next event as i am ready. I would crunch outside the events however i am limited on funds and equipment so i run the safe side and don't crunch much.

    keep me posted i'm in on all of them. currently facing a issue with the nvidia driver causing bsod's
    nvlddmkm.sysnvlddmkm.sys+cbbe1fffff880`05650000fffff880`062b40000x00c640000x537a8efc5/19/2014 6:08:44 PMNVIDIA Windows Kernel Mode Driver, Version 337.88NVIDIA Windows Kernel Mode Driver, Version 337.889.18.13.3788NVIDIA CorporationC:\Windows\system32\drivers\nvlddmkm.sys

    or else i would crunch a little however considering itss a raid 0 array i'm on that could be problematic as its a frequent bsod.

    Edit: additionally, @Norton usually posts the new members here when they report on FreeDC, and today is that day for you. ;)
