    Boinc-Pentathlon

    Dear members of Team PC Perspective Killer Frogs,

    From the 5th to 19th May 2010 SETI.Germany is arraging a completely new competition: the BOINC Pentathlon. This new cross-project competition is inspired by the Pentathlon of the ancient world.

    Like in the ancient Greece we'll also perform this BOINC Pentathlon by running 5 different disciplines. This means within 2 weeks the participants will need to crunch 5 different projects, each for 5 days.

    Each team that wants to participate in the BOINC Pentathlon needs to sign up here (possible until 1st of May).

    More information regarding the BOINC Pentathlon can be found here.

    Your participation is very much appreciated.
    SGMichaelR.

    You can count me in, and since it does not start until May 5th we have time to get more of the team on-board with accepting the challenge.

    3. Boinc-Pentathlon



    Hello Team PC Perspective Killer Frogs,
    Hello Friends from Team PC Perspective Killer Frogs.


    Team SETI.Germany continues it's new invented challenge and invites all BOINC-Teams to participate in the 3.rd BOINC PENTATHLON, following the ideals of the ancient Pentathlon.

    It will start May the 5th 2012 (00:00 UTC) and will end May the 18th 2012 (23:59 UTC).

    Like in the ancient Greece, the Pentathlon will be held in 5 disciplines. That means within 14 days the participants will have to crunch 5 different projects, all of them for a period of 5 days. That said, you can easily see that some projects will have to be crunched at the same time.

    Each team that would like to participate has to sigh up, until April the 27. th 2012. Like in the last year the favourites in the different disciplines can be chosen by every team on their own.
    The project that gaines the most voices will be crunched.

    A list of the projects that can be chosen from can be found here, but you can also suggest other projects. (But before suggesting other projects, please check if the project and/or their servers would be able to withstand the combined BOINC forces. We do not want to bring any project server down.)

    More information can be found here.

    In the last year it was very exciting until the end.

    PoHeDa
    Team SETI.Germany
