    Seems like they are.

    Question is; are we gonna let them take 1st place without a fight?

    If the answer is no, then here's how to show them who's [H]arder.

    Sign up for the project here:
    https://numberfields.asu.edu/NumberFields/

    Download the BOINC software it recommends.

    Sign in to your account and then go to this page to join the team:
    https://numberfields.asu.edu/NumberFields/team_display.php?teamid=19

    Once you're on the team, you gotta enable stats export by going here and checking the box to consent to it.
    https://numberfields.asu.edu/NumberFields/prefs.php?subset=project

    It could take a little while for your client to download enough work to fill up all your cores/threads, but give it time and it'll eventually be running 100%.

    Many, many forums all over the internet are becoming like ghost towns. Rarely anybody posting anything. Many that I have visited regularly 5-10 years ago are like ghost towns now whenever I drop by. Many of the threads/posts are like from last year.

    I had that reaction from seeing Nightfire's post.

    Reddit does have some infromation, but it's like trying to find a diamond in a 100m^2 catbox. I don't really know anything about discord other than my son seems to be glued to it. I should hop on and hang with his friends!

    do it.. just randomly pop into one of their voice coms and go hey son, you forgot to do the dishes. :p

    discords pretty nice though, basically made teamspeak, vent, and mumble obsolete over night except if you play Eve Online in large alliances.

    Looking at his title, seems like he needs to get his ass in gear...lol.
