    My strategy is to be #1 in all the projects. HAHA

    TN-Grid is a good one though. We'll gain 7 points over taking them and they'll lose 7 points after we do so we will close a 14 point gap.

    With SETI if I can get us to 3rd place quickly then I can subtract 14 points on that gap or 1st place subtract 24 points to the gap.

    The winner of the FB IMHO is whoever can dominate the sprints. Their are 20 sprints for a total of 500 possible points that are permanent once the sprint is over and you're in 1st in them all. Their are 42 Marathon projects that total 1050 points if you get 1st in them all. Sprints can count for 1/3 of your score.

    I'm gonna just play around on the marathons we're under 5th place until a sprint is announced then I'll switch over to them for 3 days.

    That is why I was suggesting holding off on SETI until he was looking for another GPU project. But that is up to him.

    Fastgeek is firing up on 12 cylinders in POGs Skynet marathon. We were at no. 5 spot three days ago and now we are at 2nd and will overtake the top team in about a day.

    Comparison of the top 4 teams can be found here.

    I guess it is good to build a sizable buffer between us and the 2nd team.

    The next sprint should be announced in ~2 days. So, don't get too settled on POGS just yet.

    I've obliterated everyone in theSkynet at this point. Well, OK, we need to wait perhaps an hour or so for 1st. :p We were in 6th place prior to the weekend; so hopefully those 19 points will help. :)

    Is Quake Catcher Network still active? I've been running it for a few days now and nothing. Their WU's seem to take forever to complete. No "time left" listing, but it's been running for over 2 days now and they're sitting around 3 - 4% completed. What gives?
