:hello: crunchers of the world,

Due to the recent pandemic, we decided to make a Charity Event "out of the range". On BOINC Rosetta is giving us the chance to help research on the SARS-CoV-2 virus responsible for COVID-19.

How to participate to the Benefit-Crunching-Action on Rosetta (1st April 2020, 0.00h UTC, to 20th April 2020, 23.59h UTC)

1. First, get as many computers as you can :love:
2. Create an account on the project : this account can be personal or be for a group of users who want to crunch together (see below for this feature).
If you already have an account on the project, go on it and quit your current team (for the time of the Charity Race).
3. Join this team: https://boinc.bakerlab.org/rosetta/team_display.php?teamid=10787
Just follow the link and click "join"
4. Now your account is joined to the Charity Team.
5. Crunch!!!!

Now, if several people want to crunch together on a unique account in the Charity Team, it's easy:
1. The group account needs to exist: it's a normal account. Create it if it doesn't already exist.
2. The owner of the account can see both the Account Key and the Weak Account Key.
3. The owner of the account can just communicate the Weak Account Key to the people who want to join the group account.

I'm ready for the Event and I hope many Crunchers worldwide will join us in this Effort to help Scientists find a Drug against the pandemic CIVOD-19 Virus!

Let our CPUs glow! :winner:
