|I just want to know: If the first stage of the project has been completed, is the work being done now just repetitive or does it have some importance as well. Also, I belong to SETI@home right now so give me some reasons I should join this project......kinda for fun, kinda to get a feel for the project.|
|ATM the optimal designs are found, so there's no scientific need to help with this version. In about a week, however, a new version will be released. That version will simulate something different. And then the optimzation can start again. So in about a week this project will be of use again |

|So is this "new version" everyone is talking about now (v4.3 i believe) the one that simulates something different? I thought it was going to be v 5 ??|
|v5 will simulate something different. v4.3 (oddly) simulates _less_ than v4.2x, but optimises in a better way than v3.x did when it last did this part of the machine. It serves as a good test case of the new architecture before I put all the new components in.|

|you dont have to just choose one project to be a part of, you can use many at the same time. I have Muon and Find-A-Drug running in the background and SETI@Home as a screensaver because I couldnt decide which one I wanted to do. Most of these programs share system resources quite well (SETI@Home is the only exception I've found, it hogs the entire CPU)|
