Thanksgiving - Celebrated the 4th Thursday of November.
In the United States, Thanksgiving is a four day weekend which usually marks a pause in school and college calendars. Most business and government workers (78% in 2007) are also given both Thanksgiving and the day after as paid holidays. Families and friends gather for a reunion, a day of thanks, and a festive meal.

Thanksgiving meals are traditionally family events where certain kinds of food are served. First and foremost, turkey is the featured item in most Thanksgiving feasts (so much so that Thanksgiving is sometimes facetiously referred to as \"Turkey Day\"). Stuffing, mashed potatoes with gravy, sweet potatoes, cranberry sauce, corn, turnips, and pumpkin pie are commonly associated with Thanksgiving dinner. Often guests bring food items or help with cooking in the kitchen as part of a happy, communal meal.

In keeping with the holiday theme of giving thanks, during the socializing or meal, people talk about what they are thankful for or tell about experiences during the past year which have caused them to feel grateful.

America\'s Independence Day - Fourth of July.

In the United States, Independence Day (commonly known as \"the Fourth of July\", \"July 4th\" or \"America Day\") is a federal holiday celebrating the adoption of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776, declaring independence from Great Britain.

Independence Day is commonly associated with fireworks, parades, barbecues, beer, picnics, baseball games, and various other public and private events celebrating the history, government, and traditions of the United States. Fireworks have been associated with the Fourth of July since 1777.

read more about it in the wiki which explains history, interesting facts and how we celebrate this day.


One of the long-standing traditions of distributed computing projects is the formation of teams.

Not just a tradition, a little healthy competition encourages active participation, to the general gain of the project.

Team USA was created to show we have American pride and that good ol\' American know-how is still a reality.
If you\'re a patriotic American, this is the team to join.
If you\'re not an American at all, you\'re still welcome.
This has always been a country with open arms.

Don\'t know.

I didn\'t know that this project in reqards to team credits was different than all the other BOINC projects.

So much for a \'standard\' system.

If that is the case then I won\'t worry about it.

I just noticed our team USA credits on CPDN are lower than yesterday.

A check at boincstats too shows our team lost 1,691,863 credits since yesterday.

Anybody know why ?

see USA at BOINCstats, go to bottom of page where it shows we gained every day for the last 29 days, but today lost a lot.

On my completed results there are 8 plots. The P1, P2 and P3 for temperature say temperature and the P1, P2, P3 for precipitation say precipatation but the \"all\" plots for temperature and precipitation both say precipitation and look identical. Is this correct ?

Workunit sent to me on 29 Sep 2005 was created 20 Jun 1973.

I must have hit the bottom of the workunit cache ?

Was this workunit found hiding in some long forgotten directory or did it escape on its own. ?
