    This year it is from 12/1 - 12/25. All sub-projects are included as well as being based on points as they have in years past. For those wanting to bunker, you can start now.

    MIP - no wingmen necessary unless your host has yet to be flagged as reliable.
    SCC - has no work right now.
    HSTB - This project runs out of work units quick and also requires wingmen.
    FAAH2 - No winmen necessary unless your host has yet to be flagged as reliable. Constant internet connection may be necessary.
    MCM - The project requires wingmen.
    ARP - The project requires wingmen - really long work units

    Deadlines:
    HSTB - 10 days
    ARP - 7 days
    MIP - 10 days
    FAH2 - ~1 day?
    MCM - 7 days
    SCC - currently no work

    And of those sub projects yes will qualify. They are not limiting it to any specific one.

    Excellent! Any of them GPU based? I have 2 1080ti's(3 if I put my main comp on) and 4 1060 6gb's that are on a mining rig, not being used. I have not installed the old 5960x in the cabinet yet for cpu power.

    Hopefully this started at 12am UTC because I'm getting ready to dump. I have a number of work units which will pass the deadline if I don't.

    you should hopefully have a little bit of extra time. I don't think they will immediately cancel your task on the deadline unless you have not started it already. i have successfully returned results a few days past the deadline before but yeah you don't want work to go to wast thats for sure.
