    Well there might be people saying they don't want the prizes, so was just wondering if everyone should specifically mention whether or not they are in for the goodies! :D

    Only when in for the goodies. If they still wanna anounce their, erm, commitment, they can state they don't have interest in the prizes.

    I'm excited! It's starting to cool off a bit down here so I'm ready to run the second 24/7 for the Challenge. Should be exciting :D

    Hopefully we get a lot of team action going. Should be super exciting :roll:

    It looks fine to me. I would put that at the top of the op and move some of your non-WCG stuff/ links down just a little bit (my $0.02/your call)

    Suggestion:

    It may be a good idea for you to do a daily post here to share some interesting solar projects (World Solar Challenge progress, solar power plant construction, etc..) and follow it along with some info on the CEP2 project (news, breakthroughs, stats, etc..)

    i.e. share why solar technology is important to you and why it is worth dedicating cpu cycles to CEP2 ;)

    We need more prizes throw into the pot, as this is a good long challenge :D

    What the heck, I'll throw a mouse into the pot.
    [​IMG]

    :roll: :roll: :roll:
    I almost hate to part with it; it's a superb mouse for realzies, but it's just sitting. CM Sentinel Advanced 2, boasting a beautiful 8200dpi baby!

    Please add this mouse to the OP as a prize, but I do ask that this prize be limited to the US for the sake of shipping price :eek:

    That info is difficult to get per project for the Team iirc. I'll be taking a screenshot of my "MY GRID" page at WCG before/after so I can monitor my own progress so that's a possible option.

    Reminder- Challenge will be based on runtime so wu's complete is a secondary stat this time. ;)

    @Norton: I will do that of course, the OP edits I did last night were quick & dirty ones because it was getting way too late for a tuesday night. I cleaned up the OP now.

    And if any of you stumble upon interesting stuff, feel free to post. :)

    Norton? Stumble? How dare you insinuate our fine Co-Captian does anything resembling a Stumble!

    Our fearless team of Leaders deserve more respect than that!!

    :rolleyes:

    LOL, I implied with that, that he does not have to actively search for matters to post. Maybe it is a very Dutch way of expressing myself though (referring to a situation of finding something without having truly looked for it).

    I read that positively and understood the statement so no worries ;)

    Stumble upon/across, happen to see/find, come across,.... all mean pretty much the same thing and yes all are encouraged to share anything helpful. I know I will. :toast:

    Now let's make the CEP2 research team go :wtf: when they see the increase in wu's crunched starting on 10/6!!! :rockout:

    I posted some tweets on the event on Twitter spread across last week. I doubt it will lead to much response though, albeit there were 19 clicks according to the bitly.com stats (https://bitly.com/19FKtXQ ). I will continue to spread the word though. ;)

    I'll switch back over to CEP2 like 1-2 days prior to the challenge.

    I would recommend that you do so as early as possible, as there seems to be a dip when I switched from other WU's to CEP2, and the same switching back. That way the dip would be before the challenge.

    Look everybody!!!

    Apparently it is a response from someone who understands sarcasm!! Although it is ingrained in his Dutch civility to explain himself, he get's it!!!

    Thank you so much!!

    Now, If I could possibly:D infect all of TPU with an infection, or inflection, of understanding my sense of unserious comment.... Oh how I would relish that!

    Just to be understood. Or, even possibly, to have more people have a sense of self deprecation, in a healthy way. Meaning, I wish more people would not take themselves so seriously, for those of us not natively speaking this crazy mash-up of a language...

    Ok, sorry. Rant over. :lovetpu:

    CEP2 has been added back into my mix. Now it's up to the scheduler to see how much CEP2 and how much FAAH I get :toast:
