    Wouldn't a 1 day challenge be tough to nail because of spool up time, upload time, etc? I'm feeling the 1 week challenges honestly.

    Tough? Ha! I thought that with a two month head start, we could definitely get spooled up!! :laugh:

    Just spool up a couple days early then cut the network access, via the BOINC Mgr and then turn it back on on the 15th! Not so tough, eh?

    :roll:

    Thinking we give it a few month's, help the folding team with their Chimp Challenge when it comes up, and bring in another challenge here around Mother's Day.

    We'll start planning for it in April...

    Thoughts?

    I definitely think we should help the F@H team since they have been awesome with our challenges. When is the chimp challenge?

    Of course, I don't know anything about folding, but I'll give it a go on my R9 290. I'll need help. Last time I tried folding it didn't work well for me, not sure what the dealio was/is.

    Not sure at this point but I know the date/format is being discussed.

    Setup isn't too bad and any Radeon 7770/Geforce 560 and up does fairly well :)

    Sounds like I have a 7770 and a 290 at their disposal, and if I play my cards right, maybe I can swing my old 7970 from my bro ;)

    The old F@H client allowed people to avoid big WUs, but know I might get $#&^%* project 8900 again which means my HD 6670 DDR3 will struggle to keep the desktop use-able. I might be doing some CPU folding though instead of crunching, during the Chimp Challenge.

    This prize is available for redraw:
    - $20 PayPal gift - provided by Bow
    Want a chance at winning it?
    This worked OK last time so let's try again.... If you crunched for the Team during the Challenge and you want this prize then do the following:
    - post here saying you want it
    - pick a number from 1-20 (I have picked one as well)
    - if your pick matches mine, you get the board
    - if my number is not picked after 8 trys, the closest number gets the board

    **UPDATE**
    Chevalr1c won the redraw

    Been 5 hours and no response! I may be first but I expect 20 guesses, or at least till guessed right.

    My guess is:

    Sorry Norton
    I couldn't help myself.
    My guess is 14

    Actually I messed up with edit/delete trying to avoid double posting- the post went live about 30 min. ago

    FYI- nested spoilers don't work that well anymore- try it and see ;)

    Worked for me well enough.. Although you can cheat and just quote the reply and see what is in the spoilers.

    30 minutes seems more apt then. I was worried.
