    What’s next other than the folding at home (can’t run)?

    December

    12/17 - 12/22 - PrimeGrid - Aussie, Aussie, Aussie! Oi! Oi! Oi! Summer Solstice Challenge -

    Most of us have gotten tired of the Formula-BOINC sprints. We have been hitting the PrimeGrid challenges. However, the next PG challenge is GPU and those work units are monsters typically.
    GFN-21
    GFN-22
    GFN-DYFL

    Typically we run WCG for the X-mas challenge throughout the month of December. However, I have not seen the challenge created yet. So, that will most likely be what ou should keep an eye on.

    Edit: found the challenge and we are signed up - https://www.worldcommunitygrid.org/team/challenge/viewTeamChallenge.do?challengeId=9746
