Who would have thought, at the dawn of this year, that before the summer was out some of us could achieve a credit total in MilkyWay of




Congrats on 42 Million !

I would have never thought at the beginning of this year, that
I would be able to make it up to 1 Million on any project !

After 4.5 long years crunching on Einstein @ Home I have only
made it up to 440K.


Regards,

Bill

Well done on the million Bill. I can remember feeling pretty good about getting my first million. Now the target is set on the 50, and who knows, 100 billion billion ;)

At the rate this project doles out credit you may exceed the max variable value by next Tuesday.

Massing billions of credits is all very well. But getting into the BOINC top 100 must be something else.

Credibility seems to be rising, but normality might need one or two of the more whizzy cards that are coming along.

An admission of crunching for credit and not for science. Have fun in the top 100 but complaining about your electricity bill isn't allowed. Thanks to this particular project the notion of comparing credits is silly.

I'd better stop crunching then, since I have no idea about the science or the time to try and be a scientist. I didn't realize I had to be a scientist to take part in BOINC, and naively thought that simply wanting to help science whilst having some fun with credits was enough.

Clearly it's not enough. I don't want to blindly help science with no understanding of what my electricity is going down the drain for, so for me it's bye bye to the top 100 and all admission that I have no idea of what I'm crunching for.

Normality has been achieved.

Admitting you have a problem is the first step towards a cure.

We should give our thanks to Nvidia/Amd for giving us a supercrunching videocard, if they would not have opened the minds for the processing power they give we would be still progress alot slower.

I think its been a truly big step forwards towards what will be in the future.
And hopefully more software/hardware engineers/developers will use this enormous power available.

Its new, its relative fast... my new bicycle

I don't know about that, but it's the only way I'll ever be able to do some science.

And mix it up with some scientists and wannabe scientists :P

Aww bless. You're an agony aunt. OK, here goes...

Dear Deidre,
My girlfriend and I have been saving for months to move to the coast but last night she asked me if she could buy me a very expensive new camera. Obviously I'm flattered and if we weren't saving every penny for our new house I'd say yes in an instant, but I feel guilty accepting it at the moment. What should I do?

Anyways.. We are all in the same boat -

It's OK, the camera is so expensive it's even waterproof.

It's so expensive it doesn't even need YOU!! :p
Doesn't expecting the unexpected make the unexpected the expected?
If it makes sense, DON'T do it.

Ah well, I don't think she would ever have bought me that camera. I think it's just a ploy to get the new bathroom she wants.

I am, however, amazed that anyone would think that an inanimate object has a need, or not a need for me.

Oh OK, every bar of chocolate in my hand has a need to be eaten by me ;)

Dear Deidre,
Why don't more chocolate bars jump into my hands and beg me to eat them?
