"I really liked running this computation on Charity Engine — we actually did use a planetary-scale computer to settle a longstanding open question whose answer is 42."
Third time’s a charm: just weeks after cracking an elusive problem involving the number 42, mathematicians have found a solution to an even harder problem for the number 3.
"Baker paid special tribute to the contributions of Rosetta@Home and Charity Engine volunteers, who are acknowledged in the Science paper.
We always donate some computing to science, and Rosetta@home is one of the most worthwhile medical research projects out there.
"Last week, we brought you seven innovative ways to cool a scientific computer.
The gauge is on 100% so it's time for another Charity Engine prize draw!Please check your entries are present and correct on the official List of Entries, then in 48 hours we will pick the date for the draw.Good luck everyone!
Winning ticket is #19165055 owned by User 0393.Congratulations to Brandon Robinette, who wins $1000 just for running Charity Engine on his PC!
Gauge is already counting to the next draw, see you then!
The official List of Entries is now confirmed as final and the Prize Draw begins on Monday 15th.
Good luck everyone!
It's that time again, folks! The anonymized List of Entries is here, so that all participants can confirm their own are present and correct.
Any mistakes must be reported within 48 hours, then the List is final and we move on to the draw.
