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.

I'm still clearing my HCC cache out. I want to clean the dust bunnies out then I'll be over.
I might have to quiet (shut down) a system or two while my parents are over. They will be trying to sleep in the boys room w/crunchers. :shock:

The change was approved! That was quick! It's now "ours." :D

My wife's bought off on the ambient noise story. She also believes she has a personal space heater under the desk in her home office. One cold morning this last winter, she even asked me if I could put one of the space heaters in the bathroom....

That's where I went wrong. I put it in the bathroom before being asked. I came home from work and it was in the garage w/cat5 cut @ceiling with dikes. :icon_cry2:

I sent out a mass email via WCG and this forum describing the 2013 BOINC Pentathlon and how team members can participate (if they'd like).

I usually get a bunch of bounces via the WCG system as people stop crunching and stop using email addresses. So far I have eight. I can't remember how many I received after sending the Christmas message. I expect there will be more in the next couple of days.
