    That was my point!

    Should "International" not be the team flag?......especially as you have membership from various countries.

    That was the site I pulled the stats from. ;)

    Glad to see you are ahead of The [H]orde :laugh:

    @Flyordie.

    I can guess at two possible reasons.

    1: I think most people prefer the Bio-Med science projects for the possible benefits to future generations (of humans).

    2: SETI has been around sooooooo long and other teams have such a massive head start climbing up the ranks would be an extremely slow process. That makes the project more difficult to get motivated for.

    Just my tuppence worth :)

    I'll stay with WCG. I think it is a project much more worth of my processor time (except for that $!*&$# energy project)

    Well if you have a Seti team why not start a Seti team thread?
    At least people will then be aware of the team and it'd keep this thread on topic :)

    Well, for crunching all we really want is your i5 750. That should put out some decent numbers for the team. :)

    Talk about no room and poor cable management, try having a cooler the size of a CM GeminII in a ITX case the size of a toaster :rolleyes:

    guys, I have been down a dual core all afternoon, and will be all night and day tomorrow. I have a computer I'm repairing hooked up where I would have the dual core hooked up. until I'm not done with the repair, I can't hook up the cruncher again.

    I've brought a new cruncher online! I still haven't set up WCG on the E4600, but I did set it up on a 2.8ghz P4 (non-HT). I'm not sure how much it is going to be on, but according to the BOINC benchmarks it is faster (albeit only slightly) that my X31, so it should do a bit more work.

    G'day All!

    mosheen, have a look at Collatz or Milkyway for your new 5850, both projects need a bit of fiddling around to get them setup correctly (have a read through the message boards) but your RAC will go through the roof! :laugh:
