Why You Should Run WUProp
There are two main reasons why you should run WUProp
First, the BOINC community generally (as well as our team specifically) gets a tremendous amount of information from the data collected by WUProp. This project collects data about the work units you crunch and makes it publicly available to anyone interested. You can get information on RAM requirements, crunching time, and many other bits of information, all specific to your hardware and operating system. If you are interested crunching new projects, you can find out how it will likely behave on your system. Please check out http://wuprop.boinc-af.org/results.py
for the results collected so far by the WUProp project.
Secondly, we are the top contributor to this project and have been for a very long time. We have held this #1 position with a very small proportion of our team crunching it. However, several teams are outproducing us, and we will lose this position soon. Those of us that use this project are requesting the help from anyone that does not run it to join us and help hold our #1 spot! It uses almost no resources - ~1kb of RAM and almost zero CPU load. And it's free credits! 50 points per day per machine.
We come to you to ask that you please join us on this project. There is no less intense project. It can run on any
computer from your PII to your super server. It never hangs up and never runs out of work. The more people we have crunching this project, the more information we get for the BOINC community and the more credits we get for the team. Please attach to: http://wuprop.boinc-af.org/
and crunch for the best Team in the world! The first team on the project! Team SETI.USA
