    New Projects

    Post about new projects here and to request individual forums for new projects.

    There is a new BOINC project called SHA-1 Collision Search Graz which is a cryptography project trying to find a collision in the SHA-1 hashing algorithm. More information about how the project works at the university research group page.

    The BOINC page is here:

    There is a new project called Eternity2 with the aim of solving the Eternity II puzzle. You need to own the actual puzzle to participate. There is a prize of $2,000,000 (two million) USD for whoever finds the solution. If this project finds the solution then the prize money is split 50/50 with the successful participant.

    The puzzle itself has an RRP of 35 in the UK or $50 in US.

    Now it would be nice if the Statstool Config actually had a selection to enter your project account number so the score of your SHA-1 project would show up on your signature? Sorry Bok, I just found it odd that the project is shown with all the data but no where to enter your list for the signature, probably overwhelmed with other work duties to remember to place that link in the project. When You have time my friend.

    Here is a new BOINC project out of Harved with a very professional looking site:
    http://cleanenergy.harvard.edu/go/

    "The Clean Energy project uses computational chemistry and the willingness of people to help look for the best molecules possible for: organic photovoltaics to provide inexpensive solar cells, polymers for the membranes used in fuel cells for electricity generation, and how best to assemble the molecules to make those devices. By helping us search combinatorially among thousands of potential systems, you can contribute to this effort."

    Am I the only one that obsessively visits that site every few days to click on every possible link to get updates? It involves two things I'm very much interested in, DCing and clean energy science(as opposed to global warming science, which seems like bunkum a lot of the time). If Stephen King were involved in the project, I'd need to start taking tranquilizers.

    Could we add Artificial Intelligence System?

    It's attempting to simulate the human brain.

    The site isn't very pretty, but it's a cool concept, and I've never had trouble with the client, though it's been a few weeks since I've run it.

    I have the same problem. My guess is that their mail server is not set up correctly. If it was, we would have received email notification when they imported the global teams. Why is it that this is a problem for almost every new project? It makes the global team thing more of a problem than a help.

    Any help notifying the admin would be appreciated.
