    As do I, I think it would be cool for us to continually be in one or more. Cool w/ that?

    Yeah, I remember I had enrolled us in a whole bunch. But then i got busy and just couldn't follow up with everything. If you want to be my scout for interesting challenges that's fine with me. Just shoot me a PM with the link and I'll buy are way in.

    wait, what?

    That's what we are aiming for man. I think we can do it, it's going to come down to the last moment, but I think we can. :rockout:

    Awesome, thank you :)

    But beware, I think it gives lower points than others, that's all I've run for a while, and checking the stats on rigs that have been the same for months (C2D laptop, PentM), the points are down a bit

    @CP: That sounds good, that way it doesn't compel anyone to choose a particular project :)

    Last Update:
    Challenge Name: Clean Water
    Start Date: 9/20/10 (We Joined on 9/30)
    End Date: 10/20/10
    Team Rank: #3 (+1) 21,782 Points / 49,309 Points Behind Leader
    9,723 points behind 2nd Place (Team China)
    329 points ahead of 4th Place (BOINC@Taiwan)


    Today's update
    Challenge Name: Clean Water
    Start Date: 9/20/10 (We Joined on 9/30)
    End Date: 10/20/10
    Team Rank: #3 (-) 24,952 Points / 52,708 Points Behind Leader
    8,937 points behind 2nd Place (Team China)
    997 points ahead of 4th Place (BOINC@Taiwan)


    The leader continues to pull away from us but we continue to pull away from BOINC@Taiwan. We are slowly but surely catching Team China, however at this rate I don't think it is enough to catch them before the challenge ends. Either way, we entered ten days late and we have done a heck of a job. :toast: Let's give it all we got the remainder of the challenge. :rockout:

    But we're catching up to No2. At this rate, we could very well be No2 by the end ;)

    We are not even doing 1k ppd better than them, we'll need about 7 days to catch them at least, it'll be very tight on time.

    Well we have 6 days left, I think that it could be possible to be No2. If so, barely, but an inch is as good as a mile ;)
