A new month, with new chances in challenges for the project(s) of your choice.
Some oldies and some brand-new, what do we do this time?
June 01 to June 08 - Citizen Science Grid Server Stress Test for DC-Vault possible inclusion
A new one -heck, competition-wise Citizen Science Grid is so new I couldn't even find a nice little picture for it. Plenty of too big ones though-: Team [H]ard|OCP wants us to stress-test Citizen Science Grid's Server hardware. The troubles with the scores on DNA have been identified and should be solved before the challenge starts, I hope. Thus we can crunch/score badges in all they have and that includes Wildlife@Home and SubsetSum@Home. The latter also runs on Android!

June 09 to June 16 - B@P POTM - Asteroids@home
Boinc@Poland organizes an Asteroids@Home challenge for us, the project with those badges named after the minerals asteroids are made off. FreeDC lets you have them all in your signature, signature.statseb.fr
lets you choose between all or the highest only. As I have loaned myself out to the Scottish BOINC team for this challenge, you guys and gals have to do without me till the 16th!

June 12 to June 15 - The PrimeGrid Birthday Challenge
Primegrid Birthday Challenge starts June 12th, 18:00 UTC
It's PrimeGrid's Birthday! And we're going to celebrate it with, of course, a challenge! From June 12th 18:00:00 UTC until June 15th 18:00:00 UTC we will have a 3 day challenge, running the SoB/PSP/ESP Sieve
project. For more information and questions regarding this challenge, please join us in this thread on the PrimeGrid forums
, also for the usual chatter. The earlier reported XML-error got incorrectly corrected
, so we ended up with a useless signature. There were 169 teams competing and we finished 29th at 494,069.88 credits!
June 19 to June 22 - Day of the Sun
The Ukraine team organizes an Universe@Home challenge for us, the project with those fancy planetary badges. And I want to go to Mars too, if only badge-wise.

June 24 to July 01 - Leiden Classical June challenge
As if living in Leiden itself is not enough: the team Colombia -from the Ukraine- has issued a challenge in honour of the Leiden Classical project. As they say at the project site:
Join in and help to build a Desktop Computer Grid dedicated to general Classical Dynamics for any scientist or science student!
The building shown is really a Leiden University building -the Academy building
- and at present also forms the entrance of the University botanical garden
. The project is based sowhere entirely else though, most likely in the vicinity of the Gorlaeus Labs
