Approximately how long will this project be in business? A month? Year? Decade?

My intention is a decade or two, but no promises...

Now that'd be cool! A project running for such a very long time... almost "forever" in these days where many projects are coming and going quite too soon. ;-)))

Though it won't be the only long one.
CPDN - 6 years so far.
Seti - 10.
Distributed.net - longer still.
No comment on how worthwhile some/all of them are, just on how long some [initially atandalone]boinc projects have been running.

OT - is there a way of limiting how many WUs are run/how much RAM is used at a time? eg, 'I only want to run 2 simultaneous WUs/use 1GB RAM on this PC.'
How I found a need for this is that I started it on an i7, and rather than sharing with the CPDN and MW already on there, it immediately started up 8 WUs and pretty soon 'windows is increasing the size of your swap file...'.
Cheers,

PeterV.

Under Your Account, Account Preferences there's an option to limit the total memory usage and page file usage of BOINC to some percentage of your total.

It is nice to find a project that is around for the long term and returns good credits that is not buggy.
