Re: Move over, Asgara; the bronze is mine...
How about a gold star for perfect attendance? :D

If I read your spreadsheet correctly, it appears that my time per result is higher than anybody else's. Does that mean they're giving me the really, really BIG problems? :D It's not unusual for me to take well over 100 hours to complete a result.

It also appears that my efficiency is pretty good. So anybody else who's still running at twentieth-century speeds need not be discouraged from joining up.

Look to your ports, sir...
I've added another device.

More are coming soon.

Shame on you, young whippersnapper, passing an old man while he's ailing...

We already own it for run time ... next comes points and then results?

Two weeks?

No, Ringo316, you are just one of the slowest thinkers of our little club. There's only one of us slower than you, let's see who it is. Oh dear, it's you again. Nevertheless, I think it's quite an achievement to crank up your O/E ratio to 0.84, using only what must be two rusty abacuses. I'll bet your fingers hurt.

Just kidding really, I think we're all putting our best foot forward.

Did you know that most of the time your computer is doing nothing? What if you could make it do something really useful? Like helping scientists understand diseases? Your computer could even be instrumental in finding a cure for HIV/AIDS. Wouldn't that be something? If you agree, then join World Community Grid now and download a simple, free tool that lets you and your computer do your share in helping humanity. After all, you are part of it, so why not take part in it?

I'll leave it up to you, RAZD, to work out a more precise prediction (preferably with a graphic illustration) of our 500th rank milestones. I've given ample examples in previous posts.

World Community Grid has already achieved a significant milestone on FightAIDS@Home, completing Stage 1a of the project, which was launched in November, 2005.

Human Proteome Folding Project Continues to Produce
Significant Results

Work on the first phase of the Human Proteome Folding project is drawing to a close. Nearly all the calculations on World Community Grid are complete, and a team of researchers at the Institute for Systems Biology (ISB) is now working around the clock ... to process the results and get them out to other researchers and the volunteer community that contributed so greatly to this project.

Congratulations Omni and Thank you very much.
Back in November of last year RazD started this thread. In the less than six month since then, many members of EvC have contributed to the project. Of particular note I would like to honor Omni. This weekend, this first week of Easter, he passed the One Year Mark, he has contributed over one year of computing resouces. All told, the members of Team EvC have contributed over 8 years of computer resources to the effort.

Congratulations to all that have participated. How about some more of you helping out?

Re: Congratulations Omni and Thank you very much.
Thank you, jar!

It has been a pleasure to know that even on the worst of days, I am contributing to a better chance at a healthful life for others.

During my recent hospital stay, I told my nurse, "Even as I lie here, I am working to save lives!" She thought I was delirious until I explained, and then she shook my hand. She promised to sign up her home PC. I hope she did.

Sign up, folks: do it for Christ, do it for your sisters and brothers, do it for yourself.


Who owns the whole rainy, stony earth? Death.
Who owns all of space? Death.

Who is stronger than hope? Death.
Who is stronger than the will? Death.
Stronger than love? Death.
Stronger than life? Death.

But who is stronger than Death?
Me, evidently.

Pass, Crow.
