As far as I can tell... the update I have just run at BOINC Synergy calculates that the total work done across ALL projects (including Alpha Beta stage projects) just passed

20,000,000,000 Total credits!

A good day for BOINC.

20,000,000,000 Credits across ALL BOINC Projects

From my calculations. It would take over 547 Millenia for one 1GHZ computer, running 24\\7 to complete 20,000,000,000 Credits.. That would take from the year 2006 until the year 549951.

20,000,000,000 \\
100 \\
365 \\
1000 = How many Millenia

20,000,000,000 \\
100 \\
365 = How many years

How long will it take

How long will it take something like IBM's Bluegene though?

Forever, since you'd never

Forever, since you'd never get "free" time on it. :-D

Another way of looking at it is it would take the BOINC Reference Computer (or is that what you meant by a 1 GHz machine?) 547570.1574 years to produce that much credit. ;-)

Of course it would only take the current #1 host here at EAH 155356.2401 years to do it, but my K6/300 would need 1.6 million years or so. :-)

Zain - is that just active BOINC users in your graph?

Anyway, I agree - great news for BOINC and for science!

Cheers,
