would bag TSBT another 25 points
yup :dance: :dance:

I am wondering if this project has come alive for an upcoming FB Sprint. Maybe it doesn't work that way?

It probably won't be a Sprint project ... the work is too spotty. Although it wouldn't be the 1st time a sprint was called on a project that had little or no work :lol:

It would be, either, a feat of unprecedented coordination & cooperation, or the freakiest fluke ever, if FB called a sprint on BURP during one of it's rare spells of up-time. My money would be on fluke. But like Bryan says it's not likely to be selected.

Even if this bonanza lasts another 2 weeks, which I doubt, I personally wouldn't bother bunkering it for the next sprint.

Bonanza seems to be over for now.

Bunkering is rendered (pun intended) impossible by short deadlines and only 4WU issued per-instance. No, my sprint speculation will be elsewhere :D

Yup. The party is over for now.
But we've got 25 FB points out of it and my tally has increased, 30+ fold, by over 100K.
A week ago I calculated it would take me 4300 years to get to 1 million for BURP. Now that has shortened to just another 112 years.

The party is over but I still have over 5k WU sitting in pending. They are slowly coming down ... in the last 12 hours it went from 8800 to 5600.
