    Of course, but the other teams might not realise that the Team Challenge and the Giveaway are different matters.

    What the Cap'n said :toast:

    Our prizes are from our members and to our members if the prizes were donations from some corporate sponsor or some other source it would be a different matter.... maybe. Other Teams can do the same thing if they choose to (and some probably do).

    It's pretty clear, of course you can't please everyone, but i do understand that prizes for everyone would be cool. However, once again, want them? Join us :D

    Indeed, it would be fun to get to compete with XS, even though we'd certainly lose :p

    We're maintaining our solid #1 spot, although there is some fierce competition for spots 2-4 :toast:

    We'll have to turn things up a little if we are going to make it to 1 billion!

    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    But lets not count our chickens before the eggs hatch even though it looks like we have it in the bag. The last challenge still haunts us.

    There was a glitch in WCG sending out GPU work and we got passed 2 or 3 days before the end of the challenge by a CPU heavy Team (SETI.Germany)

    We had a pretty large lead and it dissolved in only a few days :eek:
