At long last, B.C. BOINC is now on LHC! From British Columbia, or just want to be, and like particle physics? This is the team for you!

Hi from BC.

I fear that the LHC Carl Sagan team would lose 99.9% of it's credits if I were to defect.

Ah, but you'd be giving them the last 3000 or so credits you've donated, while helping this small team so much!

Now, using such advanced web authoring techniques as Unordered Lists, B.C. BOINC unveils its new, easier to read, less sucky web site!



You can't get an education in B.C. right now, so, you might as well contribute to science!

Fortunately, here in British Columbia, we no longer have to worry about some types of particle physics.

Once again, British Columbia makes the headlines for being at the cutting edge of dealing with tough social issues, as shown in this article from News of the Weird:

Andrew Uitvlugt, candidate for mayor of Kelowna, British Columbia, proposed in November to coax drug addicts into public jobs, such as trash collection, by rewarding them with crack cocaine, on the theory that the work would be so fulfilling that they would ultimately decline the drugs. (He finished fourth out of five candidates.) [Calgary Herald, 11-11-05; Vancouver Sun, 11-20-05]

It's official! We're now only 15% as good as other teams!

No, wait, that can't be right. Let me start again.

B.C. BOINC is now as good as 15% of teams!

That can't be it. Whose writing is this anyway? Let me see that again!

A-ha! Now I see! B.C. BOINC is now in the top 15% of all teams!

Do you live in British Columbia? Did you used to live in British Columbia? Do you want to live there (or even just visit)?

If so, then join B.C. BOINC

We're a small but growing team that is dedicated to the same principals our province was founded on, such as innovations in engineering and entreprenuership, the environment, and hard work. We hope you'll join us as we do our part for science!




B.C. BOINC - More than a team, a philosophy!

After Herculean effort, B.C. BOINC has finally cracked the top ten percent! In fact, our total credit ranks in the top five thousand! But don't take our word for it... see for yourself why we rank so high!

As an early Christmas present, B.C. BOINC members got bragging rights in the early hours of December 24th, 2007, when we passed one million total cobblestones across all projects the team is involved in. Way to go, everyone!
