    SZTAKI Desktop Grid: Project closes on May 31

    SZTAKI Desktop Grid is going to close down officially on May 31. We will try to keep the server open as long as possible afterwards if needed, so all in-progress work units can be finished. Next, the project home page will be replaced by a static site containing the description and results for the applications of the project, and will be updated when we get new results from the scientists. We would like to thank you for your support and dedication for SZDG throughout the years!

    So long SZDG. You've given me 10 years of low credit return and many errors. Thank you for the 250k milestone. Will slowly move SZDG efforts to Rosetta.

    It's always sad when a project you have been on for so long goes away. SZDG was one of the first ones I started crunching after SETI.

    Still have 560 WU's out in the wild, so there's still results to return.

    I haven't gotten any in 24 hours, guess it doesn't like me. But if that's the end of it, if SG got them all they still couldn't pass us on FB.

    I have 7 "fake" accounts getting about 1100 each/day. I'll move them over to SUSA ... been running for Ars Technica to keep HardOCP from passing them for 3rd position I will run those accounts until the Sprint starts and then I'm going to shut them down.

    EDIT: BTW, I'm still getting work.

    There are now 665 WUs in the wild. I'm beginning to think the announcement about shutting down was a ruse to get people to flock to the project.

    I think you're right. I'm going to stay on it until right before the Sprint starts and then I'm permanently pulling the plug!
