Four score and seven Workunits ago our fathers brought forth on this continent, a new BOINC, conceived in Berkeley, and dedicated to the proposition that all CPU's are created equal.

Two work units diverged in a splitter, and I—
I took the one less crunched,
And that has made all the difference.

If I had a work unit, I'd crunch it in the morning,
I'd crunch it in the evening, all over this land...

Ode to an Erg

Hail to thee, blithe Workunit!
Bird thou never wert -
That from Heaven or near to Seti
Pourest thy full heart
In profuse strains of unpremeditated downloads

Moderator, do you think they'll drop the RAC?
Moderator, do you think they'll like this Result?
Moderator, do you think they'll try to break my Score?
Moderator, should I build the Credit?
Moderator, should I run for Astropulse?
Moderator, should I trust the Workunits?
Moderator, will they put me in the validated line?
Is it just a waste of time?
