The US Navy team has a \'Project of the Month\". We ask all members of any Navy team in the BOINC system to crunch work units for the selected project. The project selected for November is Prime Grid.

If you can spare some of your computer power for the Prime Grid at home please sign up with the Prime Grid project and then sign on to the US Navy Prime Grid team. Every little bit can help us keep ahead of the U.S.Air Force team.

The Navy Team\'s Forum is at:Navy Team\'s Forum. How about joining the Navy Team\'s Forum and \'Vote for the next Project of the Month\'.


Thank you,

Yank

The members of the US Navy team forum at http://www.mikesbawx.org/navy] have selected the Quantum Monte Carlo at Home project (QMC) as the Project of Month for October. If you have some spare computer power how about crunching some work units for the US Navy QMC team. If not a member of the forum how about checking in, sign up and vote for the next Project of the Month. Will just take a minute of your time and why not check out the forum at the same time.

Thanks,

Yank

OUR OLD NAVY

LITTLE KNOWN TIDBIT OF NAVAL HISTORY . . .

The USS Constitution (Old Ironsides), as a combat vessel, carried 48,600 gallons of fresh water for her crew of 475 officers and men. This was sufficient to last six months of sustained operations at sea. She carried no evaporators (i.e. fresh water distillers).

However, let it be noted that according to her ship\'s log, \"On July 27, 1798, the USS Constitution sailed from Boston with a full complement of 475 officers and men, 48,600 gallons of fresh water, 7,400 cannon shot, 11,600 pounds of black powder and 79,400 gallons of rum.\"

Her mission was \"To destroy and harass English shipping.\"

Making Jamaica on 6 October, she took on 826 pounds of flour and 68,300 gallons of rum.

Then she headed for the Azores , arriving there 12 November. She provisioned with 550 pounds of beef and 64,300 gallons of Portuguese wine. On 18 November, she set sail for England . In the ensuing days she defeated five British men-of-war and captured and scuttled 12 English merchant ships, salvaging only the rum aboard each.

By 26 January, her powder and shot were exhausted. Nevertheless, although unarmed she made a night raid up the Firth of Clyde in Scotland. Her landing party captured a whiskey distillery and transferred 40,000 gallons of single malt Scotch aboard by dawn. Then she headed home.

The USS Constitution arrived in Boston on 20 February 1799, with no cannon shot, no food, no powder, no rum, no wine, no whiskey, and 38,600 gallons of water.

GO NAVY !!!

We like it. One response was that\'s my kind of Navy.

Probably won\'t be able to jump into help. Too short of a time period. I\'m thinking the big teams (at least SUSA) won\'t necessary win because we get off to a slow start usually. Could be a good chance for you guys to get a good score. It comes down to timing out of the gate and dumping completed WU\'d before deadline. Good Luck.
