    I'm kinda busy with some other goals for the next several weeks. Maybe next time!
    The state or, to make matters more concrete, the government consists of a gang of men exactly like you and me. They have, taking one with another, no special talent for the business of government; they have only a talent for getting and holding office. Their principal device to that end is to search out groups who pant and pine for something they cant get, and to promise to give it to them. Nine times out of ten that promise is worth nothing. The tenth time it is made good by looting A to satisfy B. In other words, government is a broker in pillage, and every election is a sort of advanced auction on stolen goods. - H.L. Mencken

    Re: NFS@Home: Updates

    After we process the current 2.8M wus we will add a difficult job to process which will require at least 2GB/thread. I’ve requested admin to add some feedback on the news, also I mention to consider an increase of the wu credit, currently set at 130, since for this job we will be needing dedicated cruncher. We’re forecasting at current pace 3-4 months for this job. Will keep you all updated on the credit thing, can be an opportunity to reach goals.

    Make the job use a new app, with explicit memory requirements on the project preferences page, opt-in only. As you say, tasks should be rewarded with extra credits.

    FWIW, I have 40M in credits at NFS. And the only app I have less than 100k hours is 16e Lattice Sieve, which is dead (I think). So the only goal I have to work at is credits. And another 10M is a big mountain to climb.
