    Folks this is something we can do while we're surfing and listening to music. It's simple, it's easy, and it could really do a lot of good. :)

    I'll be looking forward to seeing more of TPU join in this as well as F@H.

    To the TPU WCG team,

    I'm one of the Xtreme Systems WCG team refugees that showed up in a thread over here. (Hence the "Bill-the-Cat" avatar :)) Our home forum has been busted for a week now and should be back up in a couple of days. In the meantime, some of us have been camped out on the thread linked above. We truly appreciate the hospitality TPU has shown us.

    As a thank you, and to help out a bit, I've thrown the entire farm on your team account for a few days. Rammie, as posted above, has done this as well. Hopefully this will help out in the challenge you folks are currently in.

    As a dedicated cruncher, I enjoy the friendly competition, the challenges, and all. We have these since actual crunching is about as exciting as watching paint dry... All you have to do is monitor the machines to make sure they are behaving themselves.

    The real reason I do this is the research. I've lost too many people to cancer, and that is my focus. I find this work very satisfying. I have donated money to various cancer programs in the past, but this way I can see my contribution in action. WCG has many worthwhile projects contained in one place. I find that convenient as well. Many interests are served there.

    Again, many thanks for the hospitality you have shown us. Crunch on!! :toast:

    Regards,
    Bob

    123bob said it better than I could.With the machines that belong to TPU and XS members we could put a serious dent in the WCG projects.An idle machine can be put to good use.Maybe it's your child that's saved from these diseases and environmental conditions that inflict humanity.I ask anyone who can contribute to at least try it.Doesn't matter your team affiliation,we're all in this together.

    Oh!Thank you for putting up with us strange lot.
