A wonderful post. Take a bow, Christopher.

I will certainly be off once the next couple of Formula Boinc sprints are announced. In going, can I just make the point that a completed WU advances the science of the project by precisely the same amount whether it be crunched by a competitive cruncher, by a Gridcoin cruncher or by a dyed-in-the-wool astrophysicist who crunches nothing else.

"I think, we give too much credits recently"

Well you are certainly going to see that decrease DRASTICALLY as the competitive crunchers leave the project.

You have also basically invalidated the Formula Boinc marathon for 2019 by the way. This may not matter to you but it matters greatly to many others.

Could we please have 16 or even 32 WU per thread?

The overall limit of 512 WU means that a Ryzen 2990WX (64 threads) only gets enough work for less than 4 hours. I'd like to bunker more to have enough work during times when project can't supply enough.

Has anyone managed to get Universe crunching on freeBSD please? I have the linux compatibility loaded and get WU from any other Boinc project that I've tried on it.
