Merry Xmas and HNY to all members...

Post by UBT - Timbo » Fri Dec 21, 2018 10:20 am

Hi all

So, it's THAT time of the year AGAIN.... ;-)

And it falls on me to wish everyone a Merry Xmas (don't get too merry if you are driving :auto-swerve: - in fact, you shouldn't be driving at all !!), and if you are travelling (and hopefully not via Gatwick) then have a safe and leisurely journey (as there's no point rushing :auto-layrubber: ).

Then you can enjoy a relaxing time, opening pressies, gorging on food and drink :obscene-drinkingdrunk: and keeping your fingers crossed that some politicians will pull their finger out and get on with whatever needs to be done re: Brexit.

And then reality will strike as soon as the chimes of Big Ben strike midnight on 31st December and we will all have good and bad reflections on what was 2018.

And as for Brexit...? I'm not saying a word...we all have our views on the actual issue...but one thing that is fairly obvious is that our elected representatives (on all sides) have collectively failed, over the last 2+ years to actually take positive action :tools-hammer: :tools-wrench: to prevent the knife edge situation we have now. :-(

If and when the next general election comes, (assuming there isn't a political revolution beforehand) certain MPs :teasing-knob: are going to find themselves out of a job !

In the meantime, BOINC is still going, and we can still donate a wee bit :techie-hourglass: of our computing power to help others. :-)

So, best wishes to everyone and here's to what we can all expect to be an interesting 2019 !!

regards
Tim

Hi all

I was going to "cut and paste" the above into a new message...but that wouldn't appear that sincere... !

So, instead I'm bumping the above as the sentiments remain the same...excepting the Brexit stuff, which now seems to be starting to happen by end of Jan 2020 and with a full exit happening by end December 2020.

On the BOINC front, a big thank you goes to all contributors - both forum members and to those who assist the Team through your volunteer computing efforts but who've yet to join in here. ;-) (The question is "WHY haven't you joined our forum yet ??" ).

And special thanks to our forum members who are major BOINC crunchers: Mark, Chris C, and Damien who've put in superb efforts this year (and at great personal expense too, as someone has to pay for all the leccy being used).

And now, onwards to 2020 - a new Formula BOINC season awaits and perhaps some new BOINC projects will come on stream?

Merry Xmas and Happy New Year to all - and here's hoping that 2020 is peaceful and doesn't fly by as fast as 2019 did ;-)

regards
Tim

Merry Christmas Tim, and team. Hope you all have a good break (and hope that we crack #10 ;))
