OK, as suggested in another thread, I think this will be a good idea to get some action in here, so here goes. This thread is for discussion only - any entries in this thread will be ignored. If you wish to enter this competition, a separate thread is [thread=17403632]here[/thread]. The Rules The 'crunchathon' will take place from teamocuk.com stats collection time on April 28th, to stats collection time on May 3rd. Should no stats be available on the stated dates, the deadlines will be moved backwards, and forwards, respectively, until suitable stats are available. The following projects are included: SETI@home, climateprediction.net, Einstein@home, and Predictor@home. LHC@home will be added if workunit supply issues have been resolved. A winner will be selected from each project, and an overall winner will be selected. If stats have to be collected on different days, the overall results will be pro-rated to calculate the winner. This will be done after the end of the competition. Should a project be 'down' for more than 50% of the weekend, or should there be significant difficulties on obtaining work or returning results, that project will be withdrawn. Should there be a tie, joint winners will be declared. Participants must request entry by posting in the ENTRIES thread, including the project-assigned ID numbers of the host(s) they wish to enter. Each participant may enter up to two (2) hosts in each of up to three (3) projects. Once entered, each participant may amend their entry up to the entry deadline, by editing their original entry post to add or remove hosts. Should any confusion arise, the organiser reserves his right to use best judgement. The entry deadline is 11.59PM on Tuesday, 26th April. This competition is subject to implementation of appropriate stats on teamocuk.com. Should implementation not be possible within the timescale, the competition may be postponed or cancelled as necessary. It is my intent that this will not happen. All participants must be members of the OcUK team. Participants who choose not to list their hosts in the project stats may need to verify their identity. In the interests of fair play, artificially raising a host's credit, by whatever means, is forbidden. This includes excessive withholding of results before the competition, and merging hosts during it. Organiser's decision is final and binding.
