Agreed on the "lack of growth" of the team - again, it seems strange to *me* that even at this early stage, people who have joined the team haven't
- yet! - returned any data at all (although I appreciate that this might change in the future of course). We have a similar situation with the ATS
SETI@home team - 31 "members" have *never* returned a WU at all - and many people are inactive. SETI@work is even more brutal - it shows 89 active
members and 188 inactive ones.
As regards your suggestion that we "abandon" SETI@home - well, it's a fair comment but please remember that the "final scores" will be archived,
there *won't* be another opportunity to run SETI@home - and the team can register as high a position as possible by continuing to use the program
*until* SETI@home instructs us to transfer at milestone 2. Rest assured, however, that when that time arrives I for one (and I'm sure others) will
run BOINC and help the ATS BOINC team achieve an equally high position in the all teams listings!!
