Thanks everyone for participating in the Planck contest! Today we picked the winners, big thanks to the top users MaDdCow, 25000ghz, and Rally1965, and the top team BOINC.Italy, who we will mention in our paper. You, along with the ~2500 other users and ~300 other teams contributed a ton of computing power to allow us to do this analysis over the last several months.

Over the next few days / weeks we'll post more info about the contest and the results we've obtained from these jobs. The paper itself is still a few weeks away from being ready and needs to pass various internal reviews by the collaboration, but we'll point you to it as soon as its out. In the meantime, as mentioned before, we will keep the Planck jobs running. While we do this, we will lower the priority so they are on even priority with the CAMB jobs. Thanks again, everyone.
