    Seems we did it, afterall

    Ever wondered what happened to all our data from crunching AQUA and to D-Wave in general? Seems they're alive and doing well. In fact, D-Wave's quantum computer was put up against a standard computer. D-Wave performed very well.

    Yeah, I just saw that somewhere. Awesome! Neat to see this stuff actually getting used in the real world, and glad we could help them out. I was always very sorry to see AQUA end, it was the best CPU credits for years.

    I still have the Lychrel CPU and GPU code and if the team wanted to host the project and give out ridiculous credits....

    If only I knew how to do that...*sigh*...could you imagine AQUA credits again with an i7 SandyBridge and higher?
