    Where does one get started?

    I've looked through the forums (probably missed it) but where does one get started for this project?

    PS: I've never used BOINC

    ok, first download BOINC

    Install that and run the manager.

    Then go to the dropdown -> tools -> attach to project.

    Hit Next and in the url enter http://aqua.dwavesys.com/

    (as it's not in the list yet..)

    Follow the instructions to create the account and it should download and start crunching.. !

    Then go to http://aqua.dwavesys.com/home.php and login to your account.

    Hit the find a team and look for Free-DC and join it..

    Any problems let me know.

    This is the same procedure for every BOINC project out there and you can be attached to more than one at any time if you wish and allocate resource shares to each..

    Ah yes but most of us don't have a meter that looks like is should be in a car, you know that's driven at about 100mph...
    Retired from Free-DC...
    I don't have the time or money to help anymore...
