Thanks for the information. Just gave away a computer to a friend which still had 4 work units running and since he is on limited upload/download internet system he didn't want to go over his daily allowed rate.

The members of the US Navy Team\'s forum have voted to select the project \"Climate prediction\" as the POTM (Project of the Month) for the month for March, April and May This will run for three (3) months due to some large work units. If you desire not to work this project the US Navy teams need some help in the following projects: (1) uFluid, (2) QMC, (3) World Community Grid. Any help given in these projects will help us greatly in surpassing the U.S.Air Force team in both the RAC and total cobblestones. To-date every POTM selected has resulted in the US Navy team leading the Air Force by a great amount.

[b]Due to a power outage the Navy Team\'s Forum will be out of commission until this weekend 4/11/09.

I am trying to understand what you are saying but still don\'t understand why all the credit earned with a team can not stay with the team it was earned for. If a work unit model was not finished the future earning of that model should go to the members new team.

Years go with the Classic SETI project one big problem for a number of teams who had good completion going on between them was the ability to go out side the team and bring in friends from other project to help them out as they has a great RAC and credit and use it for their freinds team unitl they caught up again with the other team.Then the nemmber would just sign-out taking his credit\'s and go back to his original team until needed again. So in a few days time a team leadership in Government Agencies listing of teams could change just by new recruited temporary members just so a team can be listed as being #1.

In our case the US Navy vs the U.S.Air force team. The months of March and April were selected by the US Navy as the POTM (Project of the Month) for the CPDN project. It took us 23 days of extra crunching to finally overcome about 1.1 million cobblestones. We were leading over 50,000 cobblestone when a new member joined the air Force team carrying about 1.5 million cobblestones which passed on to the Air Force teams credit. That is not fair competition allowing new members to a team to bring earned credits on one team and bringing them to there new team.

Should be that all projects in the BOINC projects have the same rules for active members changing teams.

If you are only want to run this project for a month or two be careful what you download. The Hadsm3 and Hadsm3mh work units can be finished in 1 or 2 months (depending on the speed or your processor and how much it is turned on), but, the Hadcm3 160 year model will take 4 to 6 month to as much as a year to complete.




Thanks Jim for that information. Forgot to put that in my notice to the members.
