As some of you are probably already aware, there has been a Chanology BOINC team active for several months. BOINC: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Berkeley_Open_Infrastructure_for_Network_Computing Chanology team: http://boincstats.com/en/stats/-1/team/detail/74071867/overview We've been very busy, and recently became one of the top 400 BOINC teams of all time (out of 97,500 or so), with over 140,000,000 credits worth of calculation donated to distributed computing projects... almost 2000 years of processor time, per BOINC's standard. I'm extremely pissed at the way MIT has gone from being the home of hacker culture, to acting as its enemy. As a BOINC team, we don't do anything but crunch numbers, so our options are limited, but we will do the little bit that we can, to express our disgust. We're publicly challenging the MIT team to an 11.5 month race, with the intent of beating them as badly as possible. However, MIT's team has been at it for several years longer than us, and has over 300,000,000 credits. They also have more than 100 times as many members as we do. We will need to outscore them by several hundred thousand credits a day between now and Jan 10, 2014, but we think we can do this, despite the handicaps. I'm not particularly soliciting new team members, but I did need a forum for calling out MIT, and this one works. The chart updates itself, so if anyone's interested in seeing how things progress, just check this thread.
