Title: Taking Over 3x????
Post by: Mike Mitchell on January 30, 2009, 09:58:23 PM
Would it be worth while someone in the team picking up this project and running it on a Linux PC at home? Granted the connection uptime wouldn't be the greatest or the bandwidth but it could keep it ticking over until a more interested party got their hands on it.

Cheers,

Mike

I thought it had no work and was shutting down?

Just looking at recent stats, there has been very little overall and we are 3.5 million ahead of the next team...

It just seems a pity that it stopped so soon. With our team in front it just seemed logical that someone may be interested in setting up a Linux box at home and transfering the project. If I recall correctly, there was still a lot to be done but the project manager didn't have enough time anymore.

For the record, I'm not interested in running it  biggrin but might give an occasional hand if someone else did.

Oh, you mean running the project.  Not me - I like to keep us at the top ;D

We may need to do some inhouse testing before going live.  Bashhead
