Question Transferring credits / merging accounts

The bad news... is that I've got less computing power available than has been the case for most of the past few years, have slipped 100 places in the rankings (now below 350 ) and am unlikely to have more than one PC running P95 for some time.

So I figures I might as well transfer my credit (200+ years) to TPR. I tried (yesterday) to do this using the form at Prime Net but nothing has yet happened. Does anyone know whether this should happen automatically, or whether such changes have to wait for a manual change to be made when George has time?

If your account was set up as a "team" then the transfer of credits will have to wait for George's intervention. You should email him.

Hey! Don't transfer it to TPR! They're a big enough giant as it is! Give it to someone who deserves it like ET_...

Do you mean Team_Italia?

And why in the world Team_Italia deserves credit more than TPR? I don't want to steal anything from anyone!

Yeah that's what I meant. And Team_Italia deserves it more cuz TPR is already in... (checks stats) second place. They need to be humbled a little more.

Thanks for the 'advice' - but I have even less connection to Italy than to prime cuts of meat.

And the transfer still hasn't happened...

In the worst case, we might have to wait till M41 is verified before the transfer is completed.

1. thanks for the info, garo - I'll be patient.

2. sorry, luigi: dsl does indeed provide a 'connection' to italy *and* I had a wonderful penne arrabiata for lunch today *and* i once owned an alfa romeo *and* i enjoyed my two (yep, only two) visits to italy a lot... but i don't feel 'qualified' to join team italia.

maybe if the romans had done things differently when they invaded two millenia ago then i would have some italian blood...
