Post by scole of TSBT » Sat Apr 18, 2020 1:04 am

Clean the dust out of you crunching rigs. Get that hardware upgraded now. Apply fresh thermal paste, whatever it takes to keep those rigs and GPUs cool.

We need to enter TSBT in the Pentathlon. Megacruncher, Alez, either of you wish to do the honors? If not, I'll register us in the morning.

(This is a public thread. All strategy will be discussed either in a private forum thread or other method, which well advise of in the private thread)

I sent in the registration, notarized and attached to a Babe Ruth rookie card, just like they asked.

In Australia we are not so sophisticated to have such niceties. We do have a lot of bats in particular Flying Foxes as they are called, never the less they are bats. They are protected animals, but if I was allowed to have a rifle, I would shoot them for they are destroying my fruit tree produce. So, don't talk to me about Batman and or bat women. They are not welcome here...

Now, I wonder what sort of feeling would you get from cuddling and kissing a steel cladded object. Even your face mask would be in the way, and she would be safe behind and iron curtain for any sexual advances..They might appear to be hard, but are soft behind the face mask.

Calling all TSBT members, and guests. We need more Rosetta! It's also for a good cause since they are contributing to the COVID-19 research.

The City Run has started. The project is Universe. If you would like to support that project and TSBT, feel free to run it. Really... :-)

I do not believe that TSBT should compete in this competition as most of the competitors in this team has only joined TSBT on a Temporary bases and will return to their own team as soon as it is over.

Accordingly, whatever the final position will be, it is not fought by TSBT and I would be ashamed to claim it. I have to follow my own heart in this matter and I do not wish to be part of this Team under these circumstances. Fare Well, once again.

Pete, there is nobody crunching for us that hasn't crunched with us many times before. We really need you. I wish you'd change your mind. If you leave, all the plants are going to die!

OK. I think I need a session with Mega or perhaps start a new Team, something like the Scottish Auzzie team.

Or a remarkably well organised bunch of international supercrunchers coming together to kick some serious Boinc arse for the second year in a row!
Happy to meet with Pete any time! Although he seems to be fully on board and we just got our first gold medal of the event and are clear favourites to win the overall pentathlon.

After some serious thinking, I came to the conclusion that I do not need a session with Mega. I am alright, it is the rest of the world that is crazy.

It ain't easy being a dick. Your closest neighbour is an asshole, and the other two are nuts...but I might have the order reversed.

We're shifting resources from Rosetta to the new Ibercivis project here https://boinc.ibercivis.es/ibercivis/

It is processing COVID-19 research also.
