BOINC Pentathlon 2013

An annual event sponsored by SETI.Germany where all BOINC-Teams are invited to participate. This competition is inspired by the Pentathlon of the ancient world. Just like in ancient Greece teams perform this BOINC Pentathlon by running 5 different disciplines. This means within 2 weeks the participants will need to crunch 5 different projects, each for 5 days.

Thanks for the update. Maybe that project should be in the power lifting category... lol

CEP2 for a speed skating event? Nothing fast about that one, also harder to run more than 1-2.
Power lifting or Marathon better describes it.

I added SIMAP to my projects and created an account at http://boincsimap.org/boincsimap/. For some reason, however, I can't join the Christians team. I see nano and pecos there but whenever I click on the link for Christians, there's no join link and the top right corner says I need to log in. When I go to log in, it says I'm already logged in. I'll give it another try tomorrow.

I did try to create a new team called "Christians" but was unable since it already exists.

Whatever browser you are using, try a different one.

IE, Chrome, Firefox . . . each will have undocumented features [bugs]

I was using Chrome. The weird thing (that I forgot to mention) is the join link is available for other teams. When I searched for "Christians," one of the teams was BOINC for Christ. That team has a join link, but not Christians. Could it be because the founder is no longer with the team? There are only three members listed.

*Edit: I was able to join this morning

I requested a change of "foundership" with the Christians team at SIMAP. The current founder, who is no longer on the team, will be sent a message to approve. If they don't respond in 60 days, it automatically changes. It probably won't be in time for the Pentathlon, however.

Am I correct in assuming we should join the Christians team already there?

Looks like the only option.

. . . the members there will be helping the cause.
