It's Halloween night tonight, so we prepare ourselves for an avalanche of...November challenges. For starters a challenge that is underway:
October 31 to November 07 - Oh Denis doo-be-do
The Blondie fans at OcUK - Overclockers UK have organized a DENIS@Home challenge.
Mind you: there are optimised apps
for DENIS@Home that are a factor 10 faster
than the stock apps!
I'm having lots of fun with the SSE4.1 app from Crunch3r, that is also available for Linux and OS X.
You can also try the app from Sesef -the original optimised DENIS app-, that is Windows-only.

Amateur Radio Operators has organised a Seti@Home challenge in honour of the reproductional cyclus of our beloved alien and fervent handy/mobile operator.

This monthly challenge, issued by the French team CRUNCHERS SANS FRONTIERES, takes place every month at varying dates for four days. All teams are welcome
Let's take forward the World Community Grid project! Keep crunching! as they say at http://www.crunchersansfrontieres.org
(a little knowledge of French can be useful, comprenez-vous?). Looks like the easy days at nos. 8 and 9 for Plonk and AMDave in the team stats are now definitively over, there's a horde of other triple millionaire WCG crunchers ready to pass them.....xwingace being the first to have done so.
