    similar to folding. you run in on your machine and it crunches numbers to help solve a problem. im still signing us up for a few projects.

    its CPU intensive so you'll need to make sure your machine is stable before you run it.

    I've got it running on my laptop and eeepc ATM, can't decide though what to do with the CPU on the main rig, switch day to day, only run folding or only run BOINC?

    How long does it take for a typical WU of this to be done? I might run it on my laptop for a while if it doesn't take that long.

    it takes 24hr's before any stats will post.

    everyone needs to have BOINC up and running at 6pm EST to upload stats.

    I agree. I'm already with another team so I wown't be able to join TPU. I crunch 24/7 and the BOINC client is a helluva lot easier to install and maintain than the SMP client.

    At 4ghz on a C2D or Quad a HCC work unit takes about 2:30 to complete. The 920 rig I built is cranking out 8 HCC units every 5:50 at 2.67ghz with HT
