Thanx for your detailed reply and the description of your "SETI monster"!!
First, I really don't think anyone in the team will "complain" about you "knocking us down" a place each: the fact that you've contributed all
those WU's - and elevated the team through the ranks exceeds any personal ambitition!!
As you'll gather, I'm sure, the team has grown incredibly over the past few months - a statistic I like to repeat (!!) is that I started a thread
here - on 12th Dec 2003 - when a "chance" look at the ATS SETI@home stats board showed we had reached 46 000WU's exactly, which I thought was a
"nice" round figure to report. And, of course, since then, the team has grown and grown - from "first-timers" - to people like yourself and
Spectre and Sinchron - who joined with 1000's of WU's already.
At one stage, I'd managed to secure 2nd place behind Bob, as TCAB and djastram both "stopped" crunching (neither has - knowingly - come onto the
Discussion boards to say "hi" to us, so have no idea why, for example, they stopped).
And then Sinchron came and set a new target (!!), then
Spectre (who *really* rocks! - and recently overtook Bob!!
) and then, of course, your good self Publius!!
What we need now is someone with 100 000WU's to arrive and donate their WU's to us... Who knows, it *might* happen!!
Looking forward to see how our results grow over the next few weeks/ months Publius - we're really trying to achieve a place on the teams board!!
And, we'll be watching as you get yourself onto the American board too!! Good luck - and thanx again!!
