It's not the bunkering alone that brings down the projects. Even if everyone stops bunkering when the project is announce (or speculative bunkering as well) then everyone hitting the server with work requests when the Sprint actually starts is enough to bring some of the projects to their knees.

TBH, some of these projects should even be allowed to use BOINC with the hardware they are using as servers let alone bandwidth. They should implement minimum requirements for project to be allowed to use BOINC.

It's open source. It's the Berkeley Open Infrastructure for Network Computing. There would be no way to enforce that and seems to go against the spirit of it anyways. As far as I know one of the main ideas behind it was to create something that is easy for researchers to spin up and get computing going without requiring a ton of hardware. I do think those types of projects should be avoided for competitions, though, if they can't handle it.

Yeah that is the point I was trying to get across just didn't word it very well making it seem like BOINC can control anything.

I don't thing that FB would end, It's too much part of the mainstream, FB 2021 does need to make a few changes...

But thanks FB 2020 for all your time and effort

it doesn't go unnoticed

thanks
