The tentative BOINC Challenge schedule for 2015 has been released.
What kind of challenges do people enjoy? Long or short, separate or combined, CPU or GPU, mini-drives instead of challenges?

Below are some suggested dates that don't clash with the current BOINC schedule:

01 - January 02 - 01-28 February - all Top5000 prime projects - Tour de Primes 03 - 06-13 March - GFN524288 - "Transition Challenge" 04 - 03-10 April - Wall-Sun-Sun 05 - 15-29 May - Factorial 06 - 13-27 June - GFN262144 07 - July 08 - 14-28 August - GCW 09 - 19-26 September - Wieferich 10 - 09-30 October - Wall-Sun-Sun - "Coma Wall - Sun/Sun Challenge" 11 - 21-28 November Primorial 12 - 01-11 December - 27 & 121 combined

Feel free to suggest challenge names, different dates or orders.

Message 80433 - Posted: 20 Oct 2014 | 13:45:08 UTC - in response to Message 80425.

Two quick suggestions:

1) A GFN65536 one would be nice given that at around 425k digits, it is not far from being exceeded by the PPSE LLR units on BOINC in size. Thus, it (much like the SGS LLR on BOINC PG) will begin to be pushed off the top 5000 list eventually.


2) I have a feeling that GFN524288 will be beyond its "transition" from GPU ranged work to exclusively CPU by March.

As much as possible, avoid northern summer months for GPU challenges. Electricity bills tend to be higher and the demand for air conditioning is already higher.

It depends on the GPU. People with mid to low end GPUs draw more power from their CPU than from their GPU, especially is it's a newer CPU with FMA. Anyone with one (or more!!!) big GPUs will, as you say, draw a lot more power and produce a lot more heat. I personally turn the crunching off when I turn the air conditioning on.

On BOINC, the easy solution (which we've done for longer than I've been here) is to run CPU sieve challenges in the summer. PRPNet doesn't run sieves, so that's not an option for the PRPNet challenge series. (We've talked internally about running sieve challenges, but there's serious logistical problems that would prevent that.)

If you want a 'low power' summer challenge, my suggestion would be the n=15 and n=16 GFN projects. Genefer has to use the x87 transform which is MUCH slower and draws a lot less power than FMA, AVX, or even SSE2 crunching. On PRPNet, scheduling those tasks in the summer is the "coolest" option currently available.

Other than that, I'd suggest primorial or factorial because they run on on PFGW which (at least as of now) doesn't use FMA. It will still draw a lot of power due to AVX, but it's not as much as FMA But the small GFN projects are, by far, PRPNet's lowest power alternative.

Looking at my test_results.txt file I can see GFN524288 transition challenge needs to be in 2014:
19/06/14 b=800786
19/07/14 b=819924 increase per month=19138
17/08/14 b=838960 increase per month=19036

21/10/14 845966 today
21/11/14 865002 projection
21/12/14 884038 b-limit approaching
21/01/15 903074 hitting b-limit

So lets take that onboard and split the 27/121, changing the March GFN524288 challenge to a 27 challenge.

In Southern Hemisphere I have to deal with GFN challenge in January and Tour de Primes in February. I can actually "feel" the heat coming off my PC when ambient gets above 30degC. I have to babysit the PC in case my Wife turns it off when I am not around.

Northern Hemisphere Summer is June/July/August. There is no July challenge for this reason. In June we have GFN262144. We can swap that with GFN65536. In August we have GCW. We can swap that with Primorial.

01 - January 02 - 01-28 February - all Top5000 prime projects - Tour de Primes 03 - 06-13 March (7 days) - 27 04 - 03-10 April (7 days) - Wall-Sun-Sun 05 - 15-29 May (14 days) - Factorial 06 - 13-27 June (14 days) - GFN65536 07 - July 08 - 14-28 August (14 days) - Primorial 09 - 19-26 September (7 days) - Wieferich 10 - 09-30 October (21 days) - Wall-Sun-Sun - "Coma Wall - Sun/Sun Challenge" 11 - 21-28 November (7 days) - GCW 12 - 01-11 December (10 days) - 121

A GFN challenge for my space heater would feel good right about now, here. It's -17 C outside this hour, ("feels like" -24 C with the wind). Of course, the last week of January would be better, when the air temperature sits around -28C during the day and -35 C at night.

Edit: Actually, I should consider putting something in the car as an interior heater. The standard heaters are purely resistive loads.

Since Wall–Sun–Sun (WSS) has two challenges, maybe Wieferich (WFS) could have a challenge in January, in addition to the one proposed in September? "Wieferich Water-carrier", for the astrological sign Aquarius. (The Sun will have celestial longitude 300° (2π × 10/12) circa January 21; we could look up the exact time of day.) /JeppeSN

There is no PRPNet challenge in January due to it being the height of Summer in the Southern Hemisphere. Still if someone else will second this nomination we can schedule a 7 day WFS challenge from 21-28 January. I am keen to get WFS beyond 4*10^17 into fresh search territory.

Still no suggestion for January challenge?!
time flies fast ...

PS: Jan 3 to 11 is blocked by PrimeGrid-Challenge

Since Wall–Sun–Sun (WSS) has two challenges, maybe Wieferich (WFS) could have a challenge in January, in addition to the one proposed in September? "Wieferich Water-carrier", for the astrological sign Aquarius. (The Sun will have celestial longitude 300° (2π × 10/12) circa January 21; we could look up the exact time of day.) /JeppeSN

There is no PRPNet challenge in January due to it being the height of Summer in the Southern Hemisphere. Still if someone else will second this nomination we can schedule a 7 day WFS challenge from 21-28 January. I am keen to get WFS beyond 4*10^17 into fresh search territory.

I think that Jan 21-28 for WFS would be good

I tried to find the exact time. Maybe I misunderstand some astronomical notions(?), but I think we want the longitude of Sun in a geocentric ecliptic coordinate system. I tried to fill in some time deltas in this form, and I got this response which suggests we start January 20 at 09:37:19 UTC. Maybe someone knows a better source or way to find the time where Sun's longitude is 300°? /JeppeSN

I think it would be 20–27 January if my attempt at understanding ecliptic longitude was successful. I know I said circa 21 January earlier... Anyway, very nice with a January challenge. /JeppeSN

Are we still looking for a name for the next prpnet challenge? This is March 6 to 13 on the "27" port, right? How about the "Cube" challenge, in honor of "27"?

I did look through events that occurred in history on both the 6th and the 13th (at least as far as Wikipedia can be considered reliable) but everything looked pretty obscure, or, kind of a "downer", like someone being assassinated, a war starting, etc. So, no.

Now, if I can only get that "Age of Aquarius" song out of my head :-)

The name of the next challenge should be binary cyclops challenge.

If we write 27 (the multiplier used in the subproject) in binary:

11011


and compare with 2015 (the current year in the usual calendar) in binary:

11111011111


we see that both have only one zero, one eye, and that this eye is right in the middle, making each number a palindrome. According to OEIS A129868, these symmetrical monsters are called binary cyclops numbers.

As of the last information I can find, it appears that a BOINC PG challenge and a PRPnet challenge in June overlap (starting June 12, 13). Did I miss something?

BOINC started out with 1-4th June ESP Sieve challenge, then changed to 12-15th June:
http://www.primegrid.com/forum_thread.php?id=5940

Some options I can think of to de-conflict by changing 13-27 June (14 days) - GFN65536 to:
• 20-27 June (7 days) - GFN65536
• 20 June-4 July (14 days) - GFN65536
• 20 June-20 July (30 days) - GFN65536
Let me know what you prefer?

• 20-27 June (7 days) - GFN65536


I'd prefer this one simply because the GFN65536 project is using the x87 application, and I'd not want to tie up too many AVX and FMA3 capable CPUs on a longer challenge rather than having them crunch other GFN and LLR projects where they are more efficient.

I like Scott's thinking on this change.

p.s. I only noticed this conflict by using an iCal calendar of challenges provided by PG user/teammate mattozan, whom I acknowledge and thank for his efforts.

I'd prefer this one simply because the GFN65536 project is using the x87 application, and I'd not want to tie up too many AVX and FMA3 capable CPUs on a longer challenge rather than having them crunch other GFN and LLR projects where they are more efficient.



I also prefer short PRPNet challenges, that won't take too much CPU time away from the BOINC projects I also have my computers work for.

Top Gun Day is May 13th:
http://www.topgunday.com/2009/02/top-gun-day-is-may-13th/
Generate your Call Sign and prepare for the Top Gun Challenge.
In addition to the usual stats I'll be running 1 day training sorties.
Teams will be divided into Student Aviators against TOPGUN Instructors.
Winning side gets split into Students and Instructors for the next training sortie with handycaps based on previous sortie until one Team is victorious at the end.
eg. Team rank 1,3,5,7,... TOPGUN Instructors vs Team rank 2,4,6,8,... Student Aviators, based on http://u-g-f.de/PRPNet/allteam_stats.php?proj=FPS
Say Instructors win, then next sortie is 1,5,.. vs 3,7,... with handycap (sum side this sortie/sum side teams scores from previous sortie).
Maverick:

This is what I call a target rich environment.

Next challenge is:
05 - 13-27 May (14 days) - Factorial - "Top Gun Challenge"
I suggest we start at 02:00 UTC and end at 02:00 UTC.
Choose start time so you can see "todays progress" in PRPNet stats for each training sortie.

Looking at pending test for GFN655436, there are 27,679 tests in progress.
http://u-g-f.de/PRPNet/pending_stats.php?proj=GFN65536

We better solve this prior to running a challenge.
IIRC, this can happen when cache is a bit too large.

Thanks, there is some interaction between Ross*'s client/application setup and the server. I'm looking into it.

What happened was that Ross had only the genefercuda app enabled in prpclient. While the server didn't handle this appropriately, it's not something most users would do with GFN65536.

Then maybe a challenge prime can be found before the sun "turns around" at its most northerly declination at June 21, 16:38 UT (solstice). /JeppeSN

George Boole Mathematical Sciences Conference 17 Aug 2015 - 28 Aug 2015
http://georgeboole.com/events/conferences/george-boole-mathematical-sciences-conference.html
Boole is a pivotal figure who can be described as the ‘father of the information age’. His invention of Boolean algebra and symbolic logic pioneered a new mathematics. His legacy surrounds us everywhere, in the computers, information storage and retrieval, electronic circuits and controls that support life, learning and communications in the 21st century. In 2015, University College Cork celebrates the bicentenary of George Boole, 1815-64.

Lines up pretty well with the Primorial challenge.

Other challenge ideas:
- World Humanitarian Day, 19th August
- International Day for the Remembrance of the Slave Trade and Its Abolition, 23 August
- https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/August

Are you sure? Should I sell my shares now?

Of course we have the equinox (UTC, September 23, 08:20), but it may have been used too often already.

I'd avoid "bear market" challenge. This may be a painful time for some of us, and we don't want to rub it in. Plus, it's very unpredictable, so it could just as easily be a bull market.

We just made a change to the BOINC challenge schedule.

The BOINC October challenge is now 5 days instead of 3 days, so it ends on the 9th, the same day the PRPNet challenge starts.

The October BOINC challenge is now 3 days instead of 5 days, and starts two days later but the end day hasn't changed. That should have no impact on the November PRPNet challenge.

I suggest we start a day later; so it is a 20-day-challenge instead of a 21-day; this seems to me still long enough to celebrate our coma wall

Yes indeed, purpose is a 20 day WSS challenge.

In 2014 we had the following:
2x 1 month: September Wieferich challenge and Tour de Primes challenge
5x 2 week
2x 1 week

By end of 2015:
1x 1 month: Tour de Primes challenge
1x 3 week: WSS challenge
2x 2 week
6x 1 week

These long GPU challenges can really advance the leading edge of a sub-project, and increases the chance of near-finds.

I'd like to propose the "Binomial Challenge."

It works on "two" levels:
1) Binomial-2 numbers: 27 & 121, the 2nd is the 2nd row of Pascal's Triangle
2) The 884th anniversary of the passing of Omar Khayyam, Persian mathematician who may have known and used the complete binomial theorem, is December 4. (Noting all the powers of 2 in those numbers)

I don't see 27 in Pascal's Triangle until the 28th row.
Nevertheless time is short so we'll go with your suggestion.

Next challenge is:
01-11 December - 121 - "Binomial Challenge"
I suggest we start at 12:00 UTC and end at 12:00 UTC.
