Hi,

I also invited the Team SETI.USA at their Message Board. The Topic can be found here:http://www.setiusa.net/forums/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=13078.
I tried to describe the Charity-Crunching and the Idea behind. Hopefully some of their Team will join us.


Cheers  :hello:

Just read some of the replies in the other forums:
I'm amazed how many people are worried about their own bloody credits for 2 weeks. Not everything is a competition but I suppose if the only thing you care about are your own credits, then the notion of a charity crunch seems odd...
[:sg-digi421]
 
Glad to see so many people here though, I haven't entirely lost my faith in humanity yet  :) .

I just postedon BS-Board, why it should be an seperate Team for this Event:

Hallo BS.

I wil try to explane, why we came to the Idea to set up an seperate Team for this Event (sorry for my bad English):

In Authum 2008, we were Crunching on different Projekts allways with the eys on Formula Boinc and the Credit-System. So we had the Inspiration, to set up an Charity-Event in Spring 2009.

And Thats it: The Charity-Race with no Team-Credits.

parrallel it is an litle demonstration against Credit-Junkies working with cheating-clients.

so we hope to have an big time with a lot of DC-Fanatics, You are welcome.
Best Regards, Arne


may be this is for others althou importend.

Just for the records: I took the liberty to post an invitation to the SETI.Germany Café (SETI.Germany Teamforum) on the SETI@home boards. Since most of our members are still (only) crunching for SETI, we might get some additional attention there. This forum is only visible to members of SG who have an account for S@h and are logged into it, so no URL here.

Post by: Alexander Klietz1 on 11 January 2009 à 23:17:53
Ehm ... I guess somebody is already preparing a nice invitation to be posted at the POEM@home forum (Team Invites). I'd say this should be done by those whose baby this benefit crunching is, right?  :) Just a reminder. Maybe you guys are already preparing something, perhaps together with the project managers of POEM...  :D A French/German/English invitation, which is linked to the frontpage, would be cool :D

Hmm - As i could read in the forum of planet3dnow; they don't want to take part.

The thirst answer pointed out, that they have theirs "project of the month" and that they do enough for POEM. The next two replys agree and thats it.

Well: They don't wnat, they don't have to... Everyone his one opinion.

Edit: Delete one not really political correct sentence.

Yes, it seems so. Quite a shame IMO as that's the whole point of this Team. To do something TOGETHER rather than every team for themselves.

The thread has been moved to here (http://forum.czechnationalteam.cz/viewtopic.php?f=114&t=1234).

It seems that there were some language problems, but one of the Czech members translated Michael's post.

My Czech skills are pretty much nonexistent, too...although I live only 20 kilometres away from the German-Czech border.  :heink:

I have friends in Germany. In fact they are the 2nd generation of children since my grand-father were prisonner during the WWII.
I used to go every year near Bitburg when I was younger and I used to speak pretty good German... but since I do not see them so much, I have lose all my fluent German :'( I'm very proud of this friendship and I'm still glad to understand "Meine Freundinnen" when I see them :)

It seems one Member of the Czech National Team has a slightly different View of the things. I tried to describe it a bit more at their Message Board and hope some will join us though:

This Charity Crunch has already brought some benefits. We've never had that much contact with other teams before (or at least I never had that much contact before - today alone I registered on about 4 forums). That's the spirit!

Great; I read this from "Keith" at http://www.setiusa.net/forums/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=13078 (reply to the message from aends invitation there; @Forum SUSA) -> cit. "I will attach a couple of boxes to this also."

This would be one more user from one more team to show, that Crunching is more than just a fight around cobblestones and stupid best places in time with more and more realy borring competitions. ;) (excusé mon mauvais anglais svp; tschuldigung für das wirklich bescheidene englisch; excuse my absolutely poor english :D)

We still discuss about official things about that, I will post it if I get more information ;)

As Boincstats shows in the "Team member movements" for "Charity Team", User(s) from following Teams so far attached:

- ok.... Seti.Germany and L'Alliance Francophone ^^
- Canal@Boinc
- SwissTeam.Net
- Rechenkraft.net
- The Knights Who Say Ni!
- Nordlichter
- BOINC Synergy

I'm anxious (right word? don't know ;) ) about the next 10 days.

Yeah, and ESL, SETI.USA & more will follow...  :hello:

And I think "anxious" has a negative meaning...better to say "I'm curious about..."

Thank you, LEO (http://dict.leo.org/).  :D   :jap:

Yes they do. They were asked before, if the Server would be able to handle the additional load.
