    thanks!

    does it look like people have to be accepted to join?

    Yes it seems I have to manually accept each request to join, that is a bit tedious.

    I find this application runs really hot on my little laptop so have set it to use just 2 cores at the lowest priority in the settings.

    EDIT:
    Wow what a dumb project, it runs out of work regularly so my computers are sitting idle, when it has work it burns the CPUs up with excessive heat so one has to cut the number of active cores running. Now they're all "sleeping" waiting for more work units.

    so btw, if anyone wants to render a large Blender project, send it to me or Vaughn as we have points to pay for rendering (or a higher priority rendering)

    ah, yeah, might be a back pocket project in case someone gets bored. at least we're top 100 or so (not sure yet if the teams list resets every month)
