I thought the big bang (ie. double credit) was suppose to start after the 4th?

I gave up holding my breath or caring along while ago. If it happens, it happens. There seems to be one issue after another holding up the 'right' time to do it.

This is the way the management of Milkyway usually works. I don't have any expectations any more and you just have to except that this is, for what ever reason, the way things normally work here.

I have sent Travis a message to come up with a solid date on when this can occur. Fact is there has been issues (clearly referenced to in News posts) that have delayed it.

It will occur--we just need to get it done and I agree with all of you.

Thanks for that upfate Blurf.

The point that I made before is this, that there will be thousands of people out there just waiting to jump in for 48 hours to get some free credit, never to be seen here again afterwards. I think that is wrong and unfair to us that have supported this project for many years.

I think that it would be a lot fairer if we all got two days extra credit awarded at the RAC level we had when the major outages occurred. That is after all what this is all about trying to compensate for. Although I can and do understand that just raising the credit level for 2 days is a much simpler exercise.

I'm sorry Chris-that's not going to happen that way unless there is a significant change in plans and that's not my decision.

UPDATE: Spoke to Dr. Heidi Newberg about the issue. The main problem is the random shutdown of the A/C systems on campus. This is something the Milkyway group has no control over. I wanted to confirm, however, that this issue is being discussed actively.

Thanks for the update!

Will it be that many? Everyone can't run MW.

Yes I think so, the credit junkies. However CPU will take long.

I agree totally with Chris S, therefore I came with the idea to start with the double credit random. So who is active at a certain time (the dedicated 24/7 are) will get double credit.
I crunch only at night with my power consuming rigs, so I will in no case get a lot of double credit, but I support only projects I find interesting.

Happy crunching, but don't forget to see the last Space Shuttle launch ever!
Greetings from,

I do not understand the problem here, just do the double credit!

All top crunchers have already left this project...
Top 3 now in rac with old gpu cards, just do it!

Friends you are going to have to trust me. Milkyway works on a much smaller staff then Seti and our staff are working hard. The double credit days will happen. I believe an announcement will come soon. Please stop the negative posting over this. Thank you.
