BURP

The section for those minor projects that are around, such as CAS@home, Yafu, Yoyo@home and also including those that are "non-intensive", such as GoofyxGrid, WUProp, which can both be run in the background.

May have to wait a while for validation as they're a bit random in the ones they send out. Can take a while for the quorum to be met.

Got 61 credits pending so far, but the credit is rolling in, and been validated

Anyone else fancy a bash whilst there are over 1 million WU's to crunch

Good to see one of the projects have a 'Happy Hat' today!
2009-04-01: BURP
We are happy to announce that BURP along with all user accounts
has been sold to General Motors. The GM spokesman explains
the purchase as follows:
"Our cars have sophisticated computer systems protecting you during accidents, we want
those systems to also do something useful when you are not performing an emergency braking procedure.
Drive safely and make the world a better place by letting your car render 3D graphics."
As a consequence we will no longer be supporting the Windows and Linux operating systems and will instead
focus all development on the custom processors in the Cadilac and Chevrolet series.
Please note that the current version of the GM-compatible client may need as much as 30 secs to pause
and resume computations. This is not an issue as long as you avoid situations that require use of the brakes
or the stearing wheel during those 30 seconds. The radio will remain unaffected.
