The Ibercivis BOINC project is giving away PC's as prizes for crunching for the project!

This is no joke. If you only speak English, you will need to use a web translator like Yahoo Bablefish to understand the website.

Ibercivis main website; http://www.ibercivis.es

Ibercivis BOINC project; http://registro.ibercivis.es/

Ibercivis competition page; http://www.ibercivis.es/index.php?module=public&section=channels&action=view&id_channel=7

Bablefish translator; http://babelfish.yahoo.com/

This is the rough translation of the prizes;

I got an email from Ibercivis BOINC project about this competition;

It says;
Starting 1st June, results received in Ibercivis can be used to participate in a small contest, with some national (Spain) and international prizes, even if the primary focus is in the area near Zaragoza.

We count two different metrics, according credit or according cputime (so slow machines are welcome, if enough RAM is provided!).

Information will appear tonight in www.ibercivis.es. To participate, it will be needed to register in the website during the first week of June, giving explicit identification and agreen to be bound by the contest rules.

Discussion can be done in the developer blog, ibercivis.blogia.es, and in Facebook Ibercivis pages, where a forum area is supported.

To opt out of future emails from Ibercivis, please edit your project preferences at http://registro.ibercivis.es/prefs.php?subset=project
