If one of the administrators of distributed.net would care to commit I would
Elitehackers.info will be ten years old in August and we are a fairly large
sub team contributing belonging to Dutch Power Cows team which we have been
running for as long we have existed.
I would some clarity regarding decisions I have to make:
Will rc5-72 be stopped?
We are not into crunching for the prize money, but purely for the enjoyment
of competing against each other.
Another factor I have to consider is that most members of our group have
limited or no access to the existing clients we have loaded on PCs.
Therefore should RC5-72 be terminated, the newer clients will switch to
OGR-P2, but older clients will die off.
On completion of OGR-P2?
Should rc5-72 be stopped, and OGR-P2 be completed, most of our installed
clients will no longer be serviceable. Could I perhaps suggest an automatic
core update on new dnetc clients? So even if a core should change to a new
project, existing clients can be updated, preferably configurable to specify
our own servers to keep config files intact. Even if the file size overhead
increases, with today's bandwidth available, it should not matter. Should
another project be used, stats servers is a must so that we can keep on
competing against each other
Any response to the above will be appreciated.
