    So, do we join this year? I have one more day to hit one of my milestones and had planned to return to WCG anyway. I guess the way I see it is join and if we decide to hit it, we hit it. If we decide not to run it, we've lost nothing.

    Well, I've been camped on WCG for months, but had started sliding away to see if we can't hit first team to 100 Mil on MLC. I still have around 40 days to hit my current goal at WCG, so I could see hanging around, but I'm not going to make as much impact as last year.

    Well, that's two. Let's see if we can make the first cut. We're in.

    First four weeks are scored on run time. So this is great for Raspberry Pis. I will at least but my 20 Pi threads on this.

    When does it start exactly? It just says Sept 7th. Does that mean 5 PM PDT today?

    Z, I believe so...start was about 55 minutes ago, though we won't have confirmation of that until 24 hours from now. I don't know why they don't use a countdown clock.

    I did no bunkering, but I am running full steam for now. I am something like 8 years away from a 20 year badge for covid19. So I am working on that until I hit it. After that, we'll see.

    Same here, no bunkering. Mostly OpenPandemics and whatever TB I can get.
