    Since the Shout box log is only showing until 5/12, I really don't want to falsely accuse the wrong person. I recall whom I think it was, but really don't want to start a flame war without being able to point to it directly. Looks really bad and unsportsman like at this point if one were to do so. You may need to reach out to SETI.Germany for a full transcript of both weeks.

    I am sorry I crunched for TAAT for one night during the Pent. I felt obligated to do something for them because of the help they gave us in Einstein.

    My mind has changed on this subject multiple times over the last two weeks, but I am going to stick with my gut, which is telling me that those tactics are not in line with my values. I believe in teamwork. We fight as a team and we win (or lose) as a team. I won't be switching teams or doing any such nonsense going forward. If TAAT wants to join our team for competitions, great, but I won't be flying the banner for TAAT (or anyone else) for any reason. Everyone else can do what they want, but I will represent [H] now and in the future. Period.

    I'm really kicking myself for not finding the time to add more systems to LHC. Certainly had more at my disposal; but getting the ones I did bring online (20 boxes, a mix of 2P and 4P Xeons spanning Sandy through Skylake) was a real PITFA due to other issues. Was suffering from burnout pretty badly though. Regardless, it's really going to be bugging me for a while... thinking "what if" about 2-3 more 4Ps and ~4 more 2Ps? Ugh. :(

    The team switching needs to be addressed. But first; a hat tip to those who helped. Thank you. :) What is done is done. Water under the bridge and all that. For the future though? Think of this like the Olympics where people compete for their "birth" nation vs. their home. Might seem weird sometimes, but it's allowed. If someone wants to switch teams for a big event like we just had, that's all fine and dandy. However it must be done before the event starts; because once the event starts, you cannot switch teams. Chose your team, then live or die by your team. This seems extremely logical to me.

    Makes sense. And at least transparent after the first stats update. One can still reassign hardware to another user; but that is a higher bar as the credits not moving on own account. For those who want to have them.
