Well, a few thoughts:
- The subject of this project is THE subject of humanity. Who we are, from where we are coming from, ... you know ;-)
- As a BOINC addict, I am (as many others) also addicted to new project.
- This project is very well managed. Very interesting subject, nice website, a very good communication with the crunchers. Really, a top project!

I think that above the subject, the communication (as always) is the key. By mixing those two points, you get this good result :-)

I have crunched a few WUs but I'm the only one (wu_072107_160413_0 as an example). The other item in the WU is in "Outcome=didn't need".
What does that mean?
Thanks

OK ..... I just read the post in the 'Announcements' .... so I change the previous post from "No checkpoint" to "No progress bar" and I remove it because there is no progress bar.....

But it's correct for the calculation time ;-)

The prize idea... well, you can keep the money; you'll need it to support the project on the many years (hope so) it'll run ;) but some reward (posting a username on site news, create competitions between crunchers or even teams...) does not take much time, and is far appreciated by us

Kindly
Alc


Yes, we don't want money, glory is enough ;-)

I think giving prize(s) is a good way to keep motivaton on but .... waiting until end of 2008 for the best model is a bit far. Of course not a user of the day, or a predictor of the day like Rosetta does but something inbetween would be nice. But related to science.
