    Yeah man, to me being 2nd to them is indeed an honor, and they know it. Great group of guys over @ XS, and that comes from the bottom of my heart.:cry:

    CP, LMK if you join a challenge and need some help.....I can and will. On the "123bob_TPU" account. It's still there.....Rammie is still off on walk-about right now. I bet he'd be up for it too.

    On this last challenge, I had to look to see who you were talking about....:laugh: Even if I came over at this point, we would still get plowed over.

    XS has decided, like you have here, to selectively participate in challenges. What we noticed in the last big one Rechenkraft (here) invited us into, was that the entire WCG production was way up that month, from all teams. That's good, not just for XS or TPU, but for everyone to take notice that this effort exists and it's worthwhile. For those who do not read German, they have an English section I posted in thanking them for inviting us. If you read about the site and their goal, it is to promote crunching. Kudos to them!

    Heck, if we get one person to cross the forum and check this section out, throw a rig on to help, that is certainly worth it.....:D (You guys still need to steal the ":up:" smiley from us...:toast:).

    At XS, we had folks join our team that normally bench, or do other stuff.

    Challenges, carefully picked, work well.

    My best,
    Bob
