    Smokin'

    We be smokin'.

    I like the fact that they are doing real stuff with the science on this project. As long as they can manage to keep it running, I don't see any reason to stop crunching. Even though they're running on a shoestring budget, maybe at least they finally figured it out.

    even with Bok doing a fine job with the heavy lifting, I notice that there aren't many of us around. Like, we could maybe use a little more

    Waddaya say, somebody throw a couple more boxen in here! No need to go nuts, just spread it around a bit.

    Can't get much work from Cosmology at the moment so I thought I'd give this a try.

    The 64bit Linux client seems to work quite well

    Cool. Cosmo is having more problems than I could put up with, also. AND, these guys have published papers already and are looking mighty fine, mighty fine.

    (If they can just keep the @$*&# server running.)

    Welcome back von Smelix and Mr. Bits! Good to have your distinguished company.

    Now we REALLY be smokin'. That sound you just heard was BOINC.SK flushing into our slipstream, so to speak.

    That faint screaming you hear is our buds at AMD Users, wondering what just went by.

    PC Perspective Killer Frogs, you're next, I'm afraid. We'll miss you.

    "Bok passes 500,000"

    That must be a relief, huh?

    With all the crunching going on here, we are sneaking up on team Canada, which will put Free-DC in the top 10 in Milkyway!

    lol, that's what I did too

    appears that the MilkyWay@Home staff are aware of it, so should be fixed soon.

    Sometime in the last day or so, we passed WUN MEELYUN points!

    Wasn't paying attention, so it slipped by.

    That's 1,000,000. Good on us! More good stuff to follow.
