There's an awful lot of people on that site that seem to just be there for the credits and/or so they can add another project to their list.

So some conditions were imposed a few years ago:
People wanting to do testing there must first demonstrate that they have an understanding of what's required by successfully running a lot of models here, and by helping to solve problems that people post about here.
You don't meet either of these requirements.

Also, there is very little work there at the moment. There's only a dozen or so models at a time, at long intervals, and there's already enough computers for that.

Backups: Here

That would explain the message I got some time ago when I attempted to sign up for the beta that said something to the effect of, "We are not seeking new beta testers at the moment." Can't remember the exact words. Interestingly though it is a while now since I ran out of work. Perhaps if I had more than four cores total and rather faster machines that would be different. If spaces for new beta testers do come up I would be interested though. Not sure if I can jump through the hoop of successfully solving enough problems of others though?
