I don't mind the longer run time. But longer run time should award more points, not less.
Is there any reason why rank 10 awarded way less points than rank 9?

Hello @jozef j
I understand your frustrations, but sometime things happen.
I totally agreed with Dark Angel. Nowadays, with more and more Universities, institutions, are aware and getting involve with Distributing Computing.
Whether we, as individual contributors, like it or not or feels like they're not legit ... it's still good for science. It's still better than they'd use those computers to mine crypto. Would you agree?
Believe it or not, there are people out there very dedicated to DC. I happened to know a gentleman that has well over 30 machines at his house. His electric bill can probably build a 1950X Threadripper per month. While he doesn't spend money on new hardware, he'd go around town and picked up machines that people threw away and put them to work.
I, myself, have no where near the amount of machines he has.But in the top 10 computers here at Rake, 4 of them are mine. That doesn't mean I stole resources like you said. I also haven't had a vacation for the last 5 years. All the money went to hardware and electric bills. That's the sacrifices I had to make in order to have the output that I have.

So Please do not call people thieves because it's not fair for those who dedicate their time and money to contribute.

Great job everyone! Even though there weren't any challenge or sprints, but the race for top spot in Marathons is still going strong, quietly but strong.

100 millions points lead won't be safe between the top 4 teams.

Crunch on!

Thanks Natalia for the teaser!!

Like xii5ku said, round 1 is over. Expect more for the next rounds. Uploading seems very slow right now so ya'll may want to check.
There's gonna be a lot of bunkers going out from here on out. It'd be sux if the server goes down.
Thanks for doing a nice job so far! Crunch on!
