    How would you like to help science research by donating your computer's idle time?

    Sounds good, but what's the catch? Well, actually, there is no catch, and it can be done... there is even a team called "X-Beyond The Frontier", with over 100 members, that has been doing just that for many years...

    So, how does it work?
    Download some software called BOINC HERE then consider what projects you'd like to help... a list of the projects the team is involved with:-



    If you'd like to join a project that is not down there, please pm me for team information (it may be there is a team already)...

    Project details, what they do and other details can be found HERE

    To join a project, go to the BOINC Manager and click on "tools", then "attach to project", it will ask for the url for the project (on the front page of each project), your email address (make sure you always use the same one and check it carefully!), and a password... it will send you a project key for if you forget your password...

    Oh, btw, dual processors will do two work units at once, quads will do 4... and you can have your computer on anything up to 24/7 (mine is on 24/7).

    There are 74,203 teams in the world, and our team is ranked 255th, not too shabby!

    If you would like help or have any questions, post under here, or pm me, and in case anyone wonders who I am in the team, I am Etolf (also my name on the Egosoft forums).

    Happy BOINCing.

    Look below to see how well the team is doing... we have a very good team, but could always use more! That way we can get to higher ranks and that is good publicity for the X series of games, and the more notice we get, the more folks, utlimately, will be around TXU!

    no, it doesn't matter, go to the BOINC manager, click on SETI@home, the project, then on the left hand side click "SETI@home" under websites. This will open your default browser at the SETI@home website... next, click on "Teams", under Community, and type in (or better still copy and post from here, X-Beyond The Frontier, exactly as it is there, and it should come up with a selection. Our team should be top of that selection with an average credit of about 15,000... click on the team name. Welcome aboard!

    Cool thanks, found it I noticed the description is a little out of date - Includes the line 'New: Check out the upcoming "X2 'The Khaak Threat'"'
