Hello, it's been 10 years today that I started to participate in the project lhc@home.

I hope that these ten years of contribution and all these kwh have been useful to CERN in making the LHC a powerful tool for advancing scientific knowledge in quantum physics.
I also hope that your research will make the time travel possible soon :-)

Keep going on!

Well done Little Fr(ederik?),

Many thanks for all your work and yes, contributions like yours are extremely useful for CERN's progress in exploring the quantum world. However, the time travel problem isn't on our current list...

All the very best,

Ben (LHC@home co-founder)

I have been a LHC member since 2008. Recently I enlisted in the program Science United according by an invitation by David Anderson and gave my interests as astronomy, physics and chemistry It is a Windows 8.1 PC with a Linux Virtual Machine. It runs mostly MilkyWay@home and Asteroids@home but also LHC@home tasks on both Windows and Linux. Since I am an anonymous Science United user, I cannot get any credit but a weekly letter by a BOINC Admin informs me of the number of tasks I have done. So far I have done 85 LHC@home tasks, failing 11, probably CMS tasks which fail also on my main machine, a Windows 10 PC. Since removing McAfee from it it runs also Theory tasks, besides Atlas tasks and SixTrack tasks which it ran before on its AMD Ryzen 5 1400 CPU with 8 cores. I limited Atlas to 4 cores, so it can run 4 other tasks. Ciao Ben and Happy New Year.

According to Science United I have completed 4140 LHC@home tasks, with 321 failures. Unfortunately, there is not a distribution number for every project.
