    Huh, shows what I get for not paying attention here anymore... :eek:

    I've been running either OGR or RC5-72 on and off for a decade or so. In the past few years I've been exclusively OGR, as my GPU systems run other things. OGR-28 feels like it's going to take a lot longer than previous rulers, despite estimations that it would take about as long as 27. The only ways for it to finish on time would be either a large boost in participants, or a large number of small stubs later in the stubspace (to boost the average speed).

    Their participation seems to have fallen somewhat.

    I ran it for years until I went full in on SETI/Boinc.

    There is a new team on BOINC for SETI called 'Residents of Trantor' in honor of Isaac Asimov and his Foundation series of books.

    I'm using all of the machines I have available to get the team up in the ratings, and could use some help.

    Come and join...

    I would, but dnet seems to be the only distributed computing project that still uses PPC.

    Sorry. That's nothing I have control over. :(

    BUT the team is in the top 5%!!!
