    Hello Boinc Family,

    The Formula Boinc is modeled on Formula One World Championship, circuits are projects, times are team's points made on each project from 1 January to 31 December. Set your crunch to have the best production on many projects and you get points for the podium of best Boinc's contributors.

    New rules for 2014: The teams will be sorted in leagues according to their RAC. See list here.

    Link to the Formula-Boing website: http://formula-boinc.org/
    Link detailing the divisions: http://formula-boinc.org/equipes.py?year=2014&lang=en

    Participation is automatic if your team runs more than 10 projects (like your ;)

    Thank you for spreading the word within your team [​IMG]

    Kind Regards

    Kasur on behalf of Steering committee FB

    I had no idea this was happening. I need to check the WCG section more often! Looks like those baguette-eating, boot-shaped other-side-of-the-worlders managed to squeak past us. Looks like we gave 'em a good fight without knowing it though.

    I believe there is still time to beat them. In fact, we might be slightly in the lead, after tonight's numbers.

    We are still holding the French off, here. We need to keep pushing it to the floor! If we continue to slack off our Daily outputs, we could very easily lose this race, and we have already dropped out of the top 20 daily crunchers!!

    Turn them up!! Open a window! Sumptin! We lost this last year, it's time to focus our efforts towards an ongoing goal, not just the occasional crunching challenge!!

    Challenges seem to be the only focus of this team, with severe drop offs in output and a myriad of excuses as to why!

    HERE it is! WE NEED TO WIN this!!

    WE CAN WIN this!!

    So, LET'S WIN IT!!!

    I am not asking for anything special, just a little attention to a attainable goal, that we are currently letting slip away!! AND have let slip away in the past!

    Captain, PLEASE! Can I get an Amen? We need a Focus, let's do this!

    @Norton Those links are nice to see but, Look at this post ^ up there and then this one...

    [​IMG]

    They closing in on us, with each day they beat us in Daily Numbers!! In the scheme of things, as per your links, we are better than them. But I want us to win this, as ultimate proof we are better, ALL the time! Not just boosted by the occasional Challenge. Does any of this make sense?

    Formula BOINC includes all BOINC projects- we primarily do WCG crunching so I'm not sure how that fits into this challenge.

    *note- a little WCG gpu work would be nice by the end of the year though wouldn't it? :D

    EDIT- noticed the header on your screenshot says WCG- please post some links to look into this further if you have them

    This is just one race within the entirety of the Formula season. It is ours to lose!! Why not win it? We are in League two of the WCG race.

    The rest of it is whateva... Let's win our race!

    We're doing well, but we need to keep the pedal down! This runs until November so, let's not sit back just because we have the lead now!

    [​IMG] OK, holding steady with a 12 million point lead.
    It's a nice lead but, we cannot lose sight of the goal, Win this race and take home the 25 Formula points from this League.

    I don't remember what happened in May but, we started May close and ended May 4 million in the lead. Since then, it appears the French have surrendered!! :nutkick:
