Introduction
The Atlantic Team promotes volunteer supported research using the BOINC project manager software on personal computers. The BOINC project manager allows the computer's idle time to be applied to analyzing data for various research projects.

The Atlantic Team is a small team of dedicated crunchers. The performance of our computers varies widely and for this reason, the Atlantic Team does not focus on returned credits as a benchmark of team member performance. We are a true international team with members around the globe.

Some teams focus on credits and mainly support projects that return the most credits. As team leader I've always encouraged members to support a variety of projects. Our main focus are projects that support important medical and scientific research.

How to join the team and start crunching:
If you are interested in joining the Atlantic Team, and you are already crunching BOINC projects you will need to log into the websites for the projects you support and enter "Atlantic" for the team. If you currently do not have the BOINC software installed you will need to download the BOINC software first, then register at any project you wish to support. It is at the project website that you will encounter an option to join a team when you register for that project. Select "Atlantic" and usually in a day or so the information propogates through the BOINC system and you will show up as a new team member.

Due to some quirks in how different project websites are managed it's possible that you may not see the Atlantic Team when you sign up. Although the team is registered through BOINC-Wide teams, not every project consults this master list. Just shoot a message to us using any available contact means. The contact form on this site, our Twitter , G+ or Facebook pages are also active and your message will be acted on. The projects currently supported by the team should list us properly so you may wish to consult that list when you are deciding what projects to join.

Tips on setting up and using the BOINC project manager software:
New users to the BOINC software are often confused when deciding which settings will work best with their computer. Many of the team members visit our G+ circle daily so if you have a question that is a good place to start. Don't forget that the main BOINC site fully supports the software and there are forums where folks actively discuss issues relating to performance and setup for specific operating systems and hardware configurations. The BOINC software is very stable and runs reliably for most users, but if you encounter specific OS/hardware issues the main BOINC forum at Berkeley is monitored by the developers.

Supported projects include: ABC@home, Climate Prediction, Collatz Conjecture, Correlizer, DNA@Home, Docking@Home, EDGeS@Home, Einstein@Home, Malaria Control, MilkyWay@home, NFS@Home, POEM@HOME, Primaboinca, PrimeGrid, Rosetta@Home, SETI@Home, SIMAP, Superlink@Technion, World Community Grid, yoyo@home.

Windows User-please abort Nbody tasks
It seems that it is only occurring for people with windows. The other platforms seem to be running ok. We had some trouble getting the binaries for windows in order to release, I am thinking something went wrong there, as none of the windows runs are passing. I took down the Windows version for ...
