I won't discourage them from signing up for other projects :)

One of the things we'll doing within the Res Halls to encourage participation is offering up small prizes (We have a very excited Director who is willing to cover the cost). While I think the idea of helping out science is enough reason to join, others might only be fully convinced with the prospect free ice cream.

We'll be having the students form up teams based on the floor they live on, then have competitions within each building. You're more than welcome to solicit folks to join your team, but I'm just letting you know how HFS will be using the functionality.

Well, its not that long since I was a student and if there's one thing I know students like - its free stuff.

I think your ice cream ploy will work a 'treat'! :)

heh heh... whats to stop them soliciting us to join their team and push their numbers up? there are a few regular crunchers with LOTS of hardware at their disposal who may be able to help put any team to the top!

cheers,

Paul

I suppose there isn't anything to prevent others from joining, but I have a suspision that the heavy hitters are more interested in representing their team than getting rainbow ice cream for students they don't even know :)

Plus, It will be pretty obvious if a person has more than 2 or 3 computers. We hope they install it on their computers, and maybe their family's, but running up 1000 credits a day will alert the Ben and Jerry police.

You never know - most BOINC projects are working on something that will have no immediate impact on anyone's lives. Results from experiments such as CPDN, E@H, PP@H and even Rosetta, we hope will contribute to science and make things a little bit better for us at some stage, but it will be at a much later phase than what comes out the other end of our science applictions. Even SETI, which could (in theory) yield a definate yes tomorrow, wont have much of an impact on anyones day to day lives.

However, if a student was to post a picture of a freezer full of B&J with a 'thanks to... ' caption, I think some people may see the fun in that! (how fast can you fill the freezer?!)

:)

cheers,

Paul.

So this is where you're all hiding! The Cafe had sunk a little low on the site!

But I'm here now, so the beers are on me!



And as I can see, there are a lot of familiar faces around, but for those, who don't know me yet, hi, I'm Fuzzy. Hi all!
