A couple days to go. I've loaded up as much as I could and shut the door.

If I'm on this will need to change over tonight. I've got everything on Rosetta as that has slipped to 102nd position, first time out of top 100 in I don't know. We lost 2 places in the last few weeks. What say ye ?

Exactly, stick with Rosetta or join you guys on challenge and then go back.
After doing so well with WCG can't just let Rosetta fall out off top 100, but the payout is awful. Seti awful. #sadface

Go ahead and stay on Rosetta if you want. I'll move some cores over to it.

You are twisting my arm Alex and it hurts. I'll crunch Rosetta but only because we need to for the teams sake. My three least liked projects (because of credit ) are Seti, Rosetta and WCG. However, they are worth while projects and deserve a bit of help from time to time.

I know what you mean. Rosetta is probabily our most neglected project because trying to gain credit on it is so painful.
Seti for me, because so many on the seti forum have a cult complex that seti is the only worth while project and everyone else is a credit whore. They do my head in.
I actually like WCG because all the projects are worth while and generally very well run. Pity they don't have another GPU project.

If you guys want to hit Denis go for it, Rosetta isn't going anywhere for a while and we will need to put in more than a few days effort to make it safe again. Would rather do it slowly than stall the huge gains we have made in WCG anyway. I'll even accept Rosetta falling if WCG keeps gaining at such a level. Bottom line is we need more active crunchers than we have. Been round most of the forums posting team joining info. Hopefully we might pick up a few new faces.

Correction to my previous post on this. I'll crunch Rosetta in a few days. I just discovered that I have been falling too far back on some of my projects that I like to be less than 10th. Because of this, I will also drop out of the Dennis challenge.

Having said all that, just a reminder that we are off topic and should say a few words in the Rosetta forum so that members who are interested might just crunch some if prompted.

That's some jump in the credit required. Guess the project never thought that one through.

And I PM'd Crunch3r to see if he would consider releasing his opti app for this challenge which would greatly benefit the project but no reply. :(
