I see signs of life that this project is still going on and since I recently joined this project I am wondering how many people are still active. From the looks of the timestamps on this message board....it's pretty dead in here.

I am using Enigma@Home, is this the only way to work on this project?

Hi Thomas


Welcome to the project and the forum !


At the moment there are 6385 active user counts if you visit :

http://boinc.netsoft-online.com/e107_plugins/boinc/bp.php?project=61

The daily crunching rate is very high indeed.


This project is based on patience over very long time. Maybe the solution comes tomorrow, next year or never.

Anyway,I think doing this work is very interesting.

And I agree with you that there could be some more traffic in the forum,
but maybe there is not so much to tell aside doing our job all the time.

Hi,

I am afraid it is quite difficult to me to keep donating cpu time when there is no real "deadline" when objective is met (no matter how long is it, but at least an ending point).
That's why I moved away from SETI and some others "infitite" projects.
This one looked better but now I have not really much information of what we are doing...Is there any place I could check we are we in this moment?

KR,

Yeah I am not sure what we are currently working on. I know the main Enigma bio on BOINC shows the old message about working on a 3rd original code but that was cracked awhile back. What are we currently working on and whats the story behind it?

Hi,

Then I will finish with the current crunching and look for another project...
Maybe you could suggest another interesting one?

It's quiet because there's nothing to talk about. That doesn't make the project any less worthwhile. I don't feel the need to chat about the National Grid either but I'd be buggered without it.
