Great...thanks. Be cool if phoenics and 10esseeTony brought some of that firepower to the cause.

I don't think phoenicis will be of much help. He's been round the clock working lately and hasn't had time to deal with DC. Last I spoke with him he was having issues with systems crashing and power issues that he hasn't been able to address.

We had seen this effort earlier in the week and brought it up in Slack. I think some of us are just waiting until after the challenges are up. We have until Sept. of 2020 to hit a 100 year run time and he is already 26% there according to his website. However, I think most at this point will just be looking to see how far it can be pushed in that time.

I hear ya. Makes sense. I noticed some people ran other project than the Cancer ones, reading must be hard lol. I'll probably pull off in about a week from now. Then hit it again in a few more weeks.

Looks like he changed it to 1,000 years now. That is more of a challenge...lol.

Edit: Also, for those that don't know, this kids dad is a long time WCG'er by the name of OldChap. He is talking about his ongoings here: https://www.worldcommunitygrid.org/forums/wcg/viewthread_thread,17232_offset,5840#618229

I wish there was a way we could crunch on this coronavirus, I'd have all the doors and windows open.
I hope they do. They created a project for Ebola and Zika besides the usual big ones (AIDS, Cancer). Please crunch on when you can;)

WCG would be more than happy to add the science if you can find any researchers willing to set something up. The biggest problem is finding someone interested that has enough work to justify importing as well as willing to publicly share their results after it is done.
