Team England has decided to take part in one of the regular competitions at WCG –
Christmas Race 2008



A list of the ‘runners’ can be found here –
http://www.worldcommunitygrid.org/team/challenge/viewTeamChallenge.do?challengeId=1721

The race runs from 1st December through to midnight on the 24th December.
All team members are invited to take part – the more the merrier!
The team has the opportunity to improve both UK and World rankings on this worthwhile project. All it needs is a small contribution from everyone in the team – perhaps one or two WCG WUs each day while continuing to crunch your own projects. There is a thread in the Team Forum where you can follow progress or find out how to ‘tweak’ your project settings.
The WUs can take up to 8 hrs and the time for validation, strangely enough, is quicker than SETI even though WCG WUs ask for a quorum of 10 or more!

Calling all Team England (Boinc) members!

The team forum is back online after a lengthy absence due to technical problems.
The whole board has had a bit of a 'spring-clean' and there is a new 'Members Only' section where team members can really get to grips with BOINCing in general and the Projects in particular!
The Castle Cafe is open for business with the usual forum games to help you unwind.

And of course - we always welcome new members........
