I'd be happy to start a team if anyone wants to crack as a group. I say the winner gets to divvy the cash to their liking, though. :smile:

Rc5? How about something like Genome or along those lines? I'd be able to throw my 3 boxen in, and perhaps a few more in a few weeks.....

I vote for Genome.

Bleagh. I don't want to help humanity, I want to take the long shot on hard cash.

I'm game. I've got my firewall doing Folding@home, but I can switch.

My dad has Parkinson's disease, so I'm partial to folding or some related effort.

Aaagh. Quit agitating my concience!

Alright, my firewall will continue folding. :smile: I'm also on the SR team for the United Devices/Intel THINK program, but I could be lured away if someone starts a TR team. :grin:

I can't sleep if one of my SETI clients is down. Maybe when I crack the top 100 of team lambchop in a month or two I will consider switching.

Oh, what the hell. I've got three boxen kicking around here, with two more waiting in the wings to be built. Name the project and I'm in. :grin:

Prefer RC5, although I may still stick with the Ars Technica effort - I'm doing rather well there :smile:

Ars has an RC5 team? What are their rules regarding the prize?

I'm only running solo because too many teams had terms like '1$ to each participant for moer than 30 days, the rest goes to charity'.

If my PC is lucky enough and works hard enough to bag the large prize, I'm going to put a sizable chunk of the gains into the machine itself. Seems only fair. After that, I'll donate most to a worthy cause, and add a small chunk to our house fund.

Not a lot of room in my hopeful plan for 600 way splits. I'll take the long odds.

Hi,

Yip, Ars has a team, and a successful one at that. Not sure what happens to the cashola, but I'm not too worried as the chance of me finding it is about one in 8,000. :smile:

If a TR SETI team gets started, I'll bail on TeamLambChop in a heart beat.

I suck, and I'm down to a single single processor machien too unstable to run RC5, but I trudge on. Hopefully my ThunderK7 will RMA through quickly so I can get back up and running some year soon.

I am beginning to hate Tyan passionately.

I say SETI, as I am closing in on 1,000 units solo.

<sigh>
I guess I could do something worthwhile, however.

Well, considering the primary machine I run it is hardly ever turned on anymore...
Don't have an always-on connection @ home (unavailable in my area, unless I wanna pay major $$ for T-1 line), & I dont want it up & doing nothing while drawing as much juice as it does, so I leave it powered down when i'm not there.

I run it in the background at the office, but these old-@ss pentium-class procs take WAY TOO LONG to complete a unit.

That's my excuse, and I'm stickin' too it.

Well, it all depends on how many people want one. I am my own team, have been since forever. I think I started a TR team once before, have to check.

K-Wulf pointed out to me on IRC that I don't ahve any instructions here. Here you go:

Get ftp://ftp.distributed.net/pub/dcti/curr ... -setup.exe

Install.

Answer the questions as best you can. The email one is the only really vital one, defaults should be OK for most everything else.

Then follow the link above to join the team.

I don't think your previously processed blocks transfer with you in rc5, do they?
