An article in Nature News describes preliminary results from The Clean Energy Project at IBM World Community Grid.

what a pity they left the public support and input into the project until last and quickly glossed over it giving no details and not even explaining that the general public can get involved ! but then we are supposed to go round recruiting new volunteers. Really if WE the ones doing the crunching got some credit and it was better explained in articles what we do WE may get more members !

Great news that they are making progress of course. Although the clean energy project has annoyed me at times with unrealistic expectations in deadlines.

If a 10 days deadline with a maximum task computing time of 12 hours, or 1.2 hours per day for this "opt-in" project is too much, suppose it must than be so.

Plz, if you have something to say about WCG or the CEP project in phase 2 currently, come to their project forums, link http://www.worldcommunitygrid.org/forums/wcg/listthreads?forum=341 and 'cleanenergy' will be happy to answer all issues you may have with this project.

thx

I did get a few tasks suddenly pop up that wanted it in a couple of days (during the week) and it was on high priority, not good, usually I get them done no problems
