I found this article in my little old home town newspaper.

http://www.mycentraljersey.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20080520/HEALTH/805200311/1040

I see that the link is not showing up as a hot link, but I copied it and pasted into my address bar and it does work.

So, two days ago, I emailed the link to about twenty friends and relatives who I knew had computers.

So far, two out of the twenty have installed the BOINC agent. The fact that the article is about a previous WCG project did not keep one fellow from attaching to Einstein and SETI. He is my next door neighbor, who probably thinks that since he joined my team, I will feed his cat. Not.

In reality, it matters not to which projects they attach, BOINC or WCG or both, because in the end, what they do is sop up WU's, and BOINC will distribute and re-distribute WU's in its very efficient way to all.

So, feel free to use this link, or find one or more of your own. Approach your friends, your relatives, anyone who dabbles in the on-line.

My boss was adamant about not putting our twelve PC's to crunching, until he read the article. Now he is crunching and I think I will get all of those machines.

PR works, we need to do it.
