It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune must be in want of a work unit.

Um, no. If he has good fortune, he already has a work unit.

Give a man a WU and he will crunch for a day, give a man many WUs and he will crunch for a lifetime.

Give a man a WU and he will crunch for a day. Give a man BOINC so he can start his own project and we will all complain about not enough WUs for all our lifetimes. And downtime. And they never read the Forums....

The task toward my hand? Come, let me crunch thee.
I have thee not, and yet I see thee still."

Alas, poor Workunit! I knew him, Bruno; a fellow of infinite spikes, of most excellent gaussians; he hath borne me on his back a thousand times; and now, how abhorred in my imagination it is! My gorge rises at it. Here hung those lips that I have kissed I know not how oft. Where be your triplets now?

I have mixed feeling about posting this.....because I respect the man so much..........but.......

Ask not what your Work Unit can do for you, but what you can do for your Work Unit.
