Issue a challenge! lasieve5f is the well-paying 16e Lattice, July is a month with hardly any challenges so far...When the big guns from the great teams have spoken, millions of WUs may have been crunched.

@Carlos, go onto NFS and create a team. Then I think you can go to BStats and issue a challenge.

Carlos, Give me a time frame for when you want one issued and I will do it from my Anguillan Pirates account if you wish.
I will need a bit of lead up time as you need to have a certain RAC and at least 2 crunchers on a project to issue a challenge.

If the Anguillan Pirates manage to issue the first challenge, I will crunch that challenge for them.

I think we should have the required RAC now. Just need BoincStats to update and recognise that there is more than 1 cruncher on it and we will be good to go. Will set up for 10/7 00:00 UTC for 7 days as that is the longest we can run a comp for. If that is acceptable to all ?

I can move my affiliation into your team if needed because I've been running NFS for a week now.

I was thinking about the challenge name, it should be more generic hence we have more than 750k 14e wu's to queue. To run the 16e wu's ~1GB of memory is needed rather than 400MB for the 14e tasks.

Need Fast Ships, Pirates Ahoy !! NFS@Home Challenge.

Pirates like numbers. Pirates like to count their loot in the booty locker. Pirates also like spending their loot hence they never deal with really big numbers.
NFS@Home has a really big number of units to crunch. Really large numbers hurt pirates brains. Help a pirate today by making some of the really big numbers on NFS@Home go away.

Any good ? Feel free to suggest alternatives.
Still waiting for the Boincstats server to recognise that there is more than 1 cruncher on NFS. The team status says 3 but the challenge section doesn't agree. We will get there in the end. Carlos, you're more than welcome to be a honoury pirate if you wish. With Dirk onboard to, then this little bunch of pirates might just hammer a few of the larger teams ......
Best make sure there are lots of 16e though as for most systems ( with enough memory ) the 14e and 16e take roughly the same time but 16e pays much, much better and will be prioritised by the challenge.

Seems good, thank you.

Any news with regards to the challenge? Already uploaded a few work units so BS should now be with the option available.
