Mac Observers Gaining on Gnomes Again
- 9 May 2000
On April 26, Team Lockergnome zipped
past Team Mac Observer (TMO) with the addition of 10,977 work units
in a single day. It's been a long game of catch-up, but the Mac
Observers are closing on Team Lockergnome.
of Monday, May 8, we were behind by only 1,228 units. At our current
work rate, we should catch the Gnomes sometime on Friday.
Team Mac Observer grew to 608 members over the weekend, and
Team 6100 (a small, slow part of TMO) now
has four members and has completed 3 units in less than a week. Not

will happen. And then on to SETI@Home Poland (green), which is barely
