How to win?
1) Make a fast loading logo for the site to replace the current logo in the top left corner. Post it in this thread. A vote will be held to determine the best one. The winner will get to pick the prize of their choice listed below.

2) Crunch 1000 work units in the TSC project. Use your spare CPU power to find cures for diseases and get to be a part of a great team. Post in this thread with your username once you have completed the 1000 work units.

Who can win?
Any computersOC registered user. Winners come on a first come first serve basis. Once the prizes are won, no more prizes will be available. One prize per person please (though if you win the banner contest and crunch 1000 work units, you can win twice).

What can I win?
The winner of the banner contest will win a Newegg.com t-shirt and hat.
If you decide to crunch work units for the TSC project, winners can pick from:
(3 available) Newegg hat
(3 available) Newegg t-shirt
(9 available) Newegg case badge
(9 available) Newegg sticker

Shipping of the prizes will be free to the lower 48 states. Let the fun begin and good luck! Many thanks to Newegg for sponsoring our contest! Smile

Thanks,
Adam

there's a bunch of unused computer labs at my college. i'm tempted to go install this on each and everyone i can. the only problem is they have software on there computer that goes to Restore Point everytime the computer is turned on. i can probably install it on a total of 6 computers here at my house.

Sounds cool. I have an idea and will help you if you need... write a letter to some head honcho at the college asking if you can install the program on the workstations or any computer. Explain it's for a good cause and that it can generate good publicity for the college (ex. newspapers might write that the college is doing it).

With most colleges having the latest computer hardware, should be some good crunching. We'd show the other teams who is boss! Smile

Hmmm, might as well. What's a decent amount of work units you think it should be? 100?

w00t!!!

Code:
  Rank | Name          | Nodes | Cands | Confs 
   3   | CollegeGuy184 |   3   | 1,422 | 28,440


Can I get one of the hats? I already got some stickers, badges and a t-shirt from a LAN Party I went to. I just need the hat to complete the set!!!

By the way, I got this high this quick by running a node on my Dedicated DC Hub/UT2k4 Server (24/7), my computer (almost 24/7), and my roommate's computer.

There, I finally 1000 units worked on for TSC. Took a long time, since I can only manage about 50 units a day on this laptop, my only node. I need to get my desktop going so I can overclock it and run many many times higher for my units.

Thanks for showing me such a great program to use.

So i'm happily crunching away (also serving as excellent burn in program, and a bit more interesting than Prime95).

I've seen you mention stuff about our team being in 50th place, 49th place, where are you getting this info? Is it cuz you're our fearless team leader, or is there a place on the TSC website to check that?
