    16 cores?
    Damn, but it's pretty much understandable.
    Though with that said, those BA WUs shouldn't be just had to be done with 16 cores and with shorter deadlines, but also with increasing complexity if possible.

    that definitely doesn't help the standard user.

    Well, in the end it boils down to whether we do this to help, or to get points.

    So, just 2 months before I say bye bye to my favourite project,6903 :( because with a new time limit it won't be enough to get the bonus points(I think). Of course I fold for the good of all mankind but in the process a generous ppd reward won't be a problem for anybody, right ?:p The problem is that more and more computers can do this ,,big" projects in time but the projects are not enough for the demand. More big projects please and if not, more points for regular smp. Just my opinion...

    I was doing it to help, when I could....but lets face it, a little healthy competition makes it a bit more fun.
