    Sim1: Windows MT app added

    FYI, they just released a windows app. Until now, they were linux only. You may have to enable getting beta tasks in your preferences. Work is scarce, and is issued in small bursts, so use BOINC Project Updater to get some.

    CAUTION: The linux app credits are really bad and I wouldn't expect the Windows apps to pay any better. How bad? It pays approx 462 credits per day on a quad core. The same box can earn 12,000-15,000 credits per day on DiRT.

    In other words, MM fans can chase it but it is a terrible choice for TopGun.

    ?

    I've been getting about 3k a day using 3 cores on a quad and 2 cores on my Dell. For today Free-DC is showing 5k.

    So, let's say I'm getting 3k a day on 5 cores.

    (side note) I'm running a script to request work every 90 seconds to keep my cache up.
