One Year OGR-28

jeudi 19 février 2015 00:00

It is now one year that the OGR-28 project started and yoyo@home user contributes to it. So far the project finished 4.92% of all Gnodes. At the current throughput the project might finish in 2025. But we don't know about future stubs which are sent out. They might be smaller or bigger. Additionally computing power will increase in the next years. So there is a big chance to finish the project much earlier. Much thanks to all your spent CPU cycles! -yoyo-
