For the "click impaired":

The XS WCG team is mounting a challenge in the first week of May to try and break into the Top Supercomputers list (or at least post equivalent numbers).  This is an all-in effort with folks not only recruiting like crazy but running everything and the washing machine (kitchen sinks don't have CPUs you see) over that week and a couple of days beforehand to get validations rolling.  Like I said, this is an ALL IN challenge.  It's intended to now only hit some ridiculous numbers but possibly make news (at least geek news anyway) with the sheer amount of computing power that's going to be unleashed, if only for a week or so.

Anyone who wants to hook up with them should go over and do so.  Conversely, since IBM have bragged that their servers can handle whatever is thrown at them, people could do the same thing with their own teams in a show of support.

One week, balls-to-the-wall, ABSOLUTELY EVERYTHING online no matter what it is.  Are you up to the challenge?   Thinking

Back in the dark ages, Lance Burton's magic show was the best on the strip. Less tinsel and more magic.

Guess this means I have to turn the rock back on and crunch for SC for awhile. Not likely to strain IBM with an antique Dell  Roll Eyes but what the hey.

No one person is going to strain IBM's servers, it's going to be a combination of all of us together that achieves it.  Thumbs Up

Ok, just so I'm clear (coz I get confused easily  )

Are people joining XS's push or are folk ramping up for their own teams in "moral support"?

BBT are talking about having a push ourselves, but it's not exactly solid at this stage.  There's been one or two voices of support but one or two don't make a ball-to-the-wall team push.

If you're planning on helping Xtreme Systems in their challenge directly, then yes you need to join their team and stay with them till may 8th.  After that it's up to you if you stay or go home.

Ahh, my friend. I think you misunderstood me.
I'm not looking to take other WCG teams and combine them with us for the week, just trying to get all the members of Xtremesystems forum to come and show the computational power that resides in the forum.
I do greatly appreciate your offer but stay where you are please otherwise it defeats the purpose.

I've crunched with them before, I'll just move over after the trek for a week. If you read over at XS dosen't sound like that to me. But I've crunched with them in the past, so I'll just move over after the trek.
