We've now passed the 100-year mark on the World Community Grid folks! And to think that, less than half a year ago, we were all happy about making 50.




Go WCG IIland team!

Really? DOUBLE are work of leaving our computers on in less than 4 months? IMPROBABLE! I'M IN!


I make the many models of a mutant individual. To make them I use vegetables, animals, and minerals. From robot bugs to zombie bears to many singing barnacles.

Chim, I'm pretending, but it isn't working out very well.

Razz No I'm kidding.

If only I could install it on all the computers where I work we would get there probably in a week or less. I do know someone in IT that can push it to the thousands of workstations we have.....

It's more possible than improbable.

If we use the assumptions that: no one else joins and that everyone who has joined only runs it on one computer. It means that everyone only needs to contribute roughly half a day (more precisely 11 hours and 36 minutes and 10 seconds) worth of work everyday.
If we follow this then it would give us 6 days of breathing room.

Without any breathing room it would be approximately 10 hours, 56 minutes and 23 seconds of work everyday under the same assumptions.

This is one reason I love the Island -- it's full of people with a taste for this sort of geekery. Makes me feel right at home... Big Grin
