Some even got ahead of their repayment schedule. 2012-08-07, 22:30 #7 Uncwilly 6809 > 6502 """"""""""""""""""" Aug 2003 101×103 Posts 2×3×5×337 Posts Quote:  Originally Posted by Xyzzy Have you ever had a defaulted loan?

I would buy computers and crunch for gimps, I would take care of all the electricity bills, and if I find a prime with 100M digits, we split the award I can't promise I will give you back all the money, and additionally, the computers/electronics lose value in time... hehe, they are not exactly the best investment, but hey, crunching primes is fun ... 2012-08-11, 06:28 #11 Puzzle-Peter Jun 2009 22·173 Posts Quote:  Originally Posted by Xyzzy Would it be (more) fun if we had a team? Not with three or four members I think. With a team a little larger the team captain (founder) can set goals such as "$5000 until Christmas" or whatever which turns into a kind of friendly competition. We do this at Seti.Germany and yes, it is fun! Plus it helps to raise funds a little faster
