Also Scout Brown along with Tim, Rytis and Myself backed the idea that after a set amount is determined and posted on someone's donations, one could get a Project Super Donor Title or whatever you wish to call it that could be voted or just the Moderator's decide, I am fine with any just as long as no one is angry and I don't see any angry posts just very very good suggestions and ideas from people who, in the future, would love to see this site be even better. To strive to be better is always the best way to go on living life.

I'm unsure of how showing extra recognition for those who can afford to donate larger amounts of money can benefit the project?

Excuse my ignorance but it just sounds like an opportunity for the rich to say "I'm better than you, I gave more money", or maybe it would just give the less wealthy something extra to apologise for?

Please note,I am not saying the idea is wrong, I just would like to understand how the project would benefit. Of course, there could be the competitive element, where some people would give more money just because they think it makes them look more important (from that point of view, the idea that a "Project Sponsor" flag culd be implemented sounds reasonable...)

I'd like to try this one out as well. It'll be interesting to see how my systems (Athlon 64 3200+ @ 2.2GHz, Athlon 64 3600+ @ 2.4GHz and Core 2 Duo @ 2.66GHz minimum (overclocked to 3.2GHz when not doing LLR task that cause it to overheat!).

I'm running XP64 on all my 64-bit systems (and will have more soon to give to some project(s), but not sure which yet).

It's a shame the servers could not synch with each other to know that once you are told the project started, all downloaded work would be part of the project. I feel like I Wasted about 8 hours of work time, especially given that the wu for this project give such low credits (and now I have learned to also be a credit junkie :) ).

Oh well, I reset the project on both machines that are running it, and should now be running fine (albeit at an uncomfortably low RAC).

I just noticed that all the wu I downloaded a few seconds after 18:00 UTC (and after the main page said it was time to start) say they were downloaded a few seconds BEFORE 18:00, and so those completed are not giving me or my team points toward the challenge. Does this mean I ahve to abort all those that remain (or even reset the project) and restart the project with fresh downloads in order for my work to be considered a valid part of the challenge?
