I also bought boingames.com. So we can use either b-games.org or boincgames.com

Opinions on one or the other?

b-games is alright, but now that you mention it, I like boincgames since it is much less ambiguous.

I figured you might be trying to avoid copyright issues, but I don't even know if a volunteer computing project out of Berkeley would even be copyrighted, and even if so, our use of it would probably be allowed if it was not for profit.

Well how would formula-boinc get away with it then?

Good point!

In my ignorance, perhaps I'm overly cautious.
