Why will I stay, because I beleive the project does appreciate us. Even tho they have forgotten how to show it.


That's my opinion, too. But I think it's a shame that CERN doesn't use the pc power donated (maybe they have enough internal pcs?) but they don't care. Now they don't need us but when the LHC is up and running in 2007 or later, the amounts of data produced maybe could be split into small wus and then they could get (a great?) benefit out of us, but I guess the chances are bad on that.
Let's hope they haven't forgotten about this project ;-)

Why a single core processor for number crunching? ... I think about an AMD Athlon64 X2 3800+ or better ...

This is a very good news but why can't you post such interesting things on the front page to inform all ppl? (instead of writing it in any thread ...)

Abstract
<blockquote>
Black Holes and the Centrifugal Force Paradox; March 1993; by Abramowicz; 6 page(s)

If you have ever traveled in a car, bus or train as it sped around a bend, you have experienced the centrifugal force: the outward push, away from the center of the curve that grows stronger as the vehicle's speed increases. You can therefore imagine how surprised my colleague A. R. Prasanna of the Physical Research Laboratory in Ahmedabad, India, and I were when we realized recently that Einstein's general theory of relativity predicts that in certain circumstances the centrifugal force may be directed toward, not away from, the center of a circular motion. We demonstrated that if an astronaut manages to steer a spacecraft sufficiently close to some extremely massive and compact object, such as a black hole, the astronaut would feel a centrifugal force pushing inward, not outward. Contrary to everyday experience, an increase in the orbital speed of the rocket strengthens the inward push of the centrifugal force.

According to our calculations, in the region close to a black hole not only does the centrifugal force reverse direction but all dynamic effects that depend on the sense of inward and outward are also reversed. This realization is important for understanding some aspects of the physics of black holes, which are believed to be a crucial part of the mysterious central engines that power the brightest galaxies in the cosmos. Investigations of the centrifugal force paradox have provided some tantalizing insights into the behavior of these galactic energy sources.</blockquote>

Very interesting ...

Thanks to my private teachers :)
But I'm not sure whether my question is fully answered.

From the question we have: "If Neutrinos have no mass, can they escape a black hole?" and we assume that it cannot it would be interesting what properties a (fictive)particle must have to escape. Or is it fully excluded?

What restricts the massless particles to do not travel faster than light?
Black holes attributes are mass, charge and angular momentum ... so when a particle is massless and has no charge, what restricts its movement?

Please educate me :-)

<blockquote><blockquote>Same I thought and I don't know how to open a user-account there ...
(or I'm to lazy to read, translate and to unterstand all right;-( )
</blockquote>

That's very easy. There's a file named user.txt (if you start from scratch just create it). Its only function is to contain the user name :) ... just write in the name you want and the next time you upload the results.txt your account will be created ... if you join a team then add the team id in the user.txt and tell Stephen in the forum that he should merge you 'OldAccount' with your 'NewAccount' with the team id (there is still a special thread). You can also just start the muon1.exe. If the program doesn't find a user.txt file it will prompt for you account name and will create the user.txt for you.

For New Users Q&A just look at the so called forum or the other forums:

Erm, related to BOINC he said that there is no need because all runs fine.
Probably this project is part of his PhD and a change to BOINC would be too time consuming and/or counterproductive.
