Welcome to the From Pi to Paddy Challenge

March sees two celebrations, one mostly celebrated by mathematicians the other recognized by a broader part of western society. March 14th is Pi-day, as the approximation starts with 3.14. which could read as March 14th. The other festivity is Saint Patrick's day, which finds its origin in Ireland but is celebrated now in many countries across the world.

To participate in these celebrations, we are hosting a 3 day challenge on the SR5 subproject. Please note the non-standard starting time!

This project is an extension of the original Sierpinski/Riesel problems (SoB/TRP). It is attempting to solve the Sierpinski/Riesel problems for base 5 by determining the smallest Sierpinski/Riesel numbers. Therefore, primes of the form k*5^n+/-1 are being sought for even k's.

A distributed effort is currently ongoing in support of the project. More information can be found in the mersenneforum.org Sierpinski/Riesel Base 5 thread.

To participate in the Challenge, please select only the SR5 (LLR) project in your PrimeGrid preferences section. The challenge will begin March 14th 2016, 03:14:15 UTC and end March 17th 2016, 03:14:15 UTC. Application builds are available for Linux , Windows and MacIntel 32 bit and 64 bit. Intel CPU's with AVX and FMA capabilities will be significantly faster than the ones without, as this instruction set allows for more computing power.

ATTENTION: The primality program LLR is CPU intensive; so, it is vital to have a stable system with good cooling. It does not tolerate "even the slightest of errors." Please see this post for more details on how you can "stress test" your computer. WU's will take about 2.5 hours on fast/newer computers and 5+ hours on slower/older computers. If your computer is highly overclocked, please consider "stress testing" it. Sieving is an excellent alternative for computers that are not able to LLR. :)

Restricted airflow is one of the primary reasons for overheating. Take the time to monitor the fans and review the dust buildup. Please, please, please make sure your machines are up to the task.


NOTE: Should you be lucky enough to find a prime, extra processing is required and the run-time may be as much as 10 times longer than normal.

DON'T ABORT TASKS THAT SEEM TO BE TAKING AN UNUSUALLY LONG TIME TO RUN!


Time zone converter


    The World Clock - Time Zone Converter

    NOTE: The countdown clock on the front page uses the host computer time. Therefore, if your computer time is off, so will the countdown clock. For precise timing, use the UTC Time in the data section to the left of the countdown clock.

Scoring Information


    Scores will be kept for individuals and teams. Only work units issued AFTER March 14th 2016, 03:14:15 and received BEFORE March 17th 2016, 03:14:15 UTC will be considered for credit.



    Therefore, each completed WU will earn a unique score based on its n value. The higher the n, the higher the score. This is different than BOINC cobblestones! A quorum of 2 is NOT needed to award Challenge score - i.e. no double checker. Therefore, each returned result will earn a Challenge score. Please note that if the result is eventually declared invalid, the score will be removed.

At the Conclusion of the Challenge


    We would prefer users "moving on" to finish those tasks they have downloaded, if not then please ABORT the WU's instead of DETACHING, RESETTING, or PAUSING.

    ABORTING WU's allows them to be recycled immediately; thus a much faster "clean up" to the end of an LLR Challenge. DETACHING, RESETTING, and PAUSING WU's causes them to remain in limbo until they EXPIRE. Therefore, we must wait until WU's expire to send them out to be completed.

    Please consider either completing what's in the queue or ABORTING them. Thank you. :)


    Best of Luck!!!

    Sierpinski Base 5 - The smallest even Sierpinski base 5 number is suggested to be k=159986. To prove this, it is sufficient to show that k*5^n+1 is prime for each even k < 159986. This has currently been achieved for all even k, with the exception of the following 34 values (as of 13 March 2016):
      k = 6436, 7528, 10918, 26798, 29914, 31712, 36412, 41738, 44348, 44738, 45748, 51208, 58642, 60394, 62698, 64258, 67612, 67748, 71492, 74632, 76724, 81556, 83936, 84284, 90056, 92158, 92906, 93484, 105464, 118568, 126134, 138514, 139196, 152588

    Riesel Base 5 -
    The smallest even Riesel base 5 number is suggested to be k=346802. To prove this, it is sufficient to show that k*5^n-1 is prime for each even k < 346802. This has currently been achieved for all even k, with the exception of the following 77 values (as of 13 March 2016):

      k = 3622, 4906, 23906, 26222, 35248, 35816, 52922, 53546, 63838, 64598, 66916, 68132, 71146, 76354, 81134, 88444, 92936, 102818, 102952, 109238, 109838, 109862, 127174, 131848, 134266, 136804, 143632, 145462, 145484, 146264, 146756, 147844, 151042, 152428, 154844, 159388, 164852, 170386, 170908, 171362, 177742, 180062, 182398, 187916, 189766, 190334, 194368, 195872, 201778, 204394, 206894, 207494, 213988, 231674, 238694, 239062, 239342, 246238, 248546, 259072, 265702, 267298, 271162, 273662, 285598, 285728, 296024, 298442, 301562, 304004, 313126, 318278, 322498, 325922, 327926, 335414, 338866

    History
    Robert Smith originally presented the idea of a Sierpinski/Riesel base 5 search on 17 September 2004, in the primeform yahoo group. Using {3,7,13,31,601} as the covering set, he proposed that k=346802 is the smallest Riesel base 5 number. Shortly afterwards, Guido Smetrijns proposed that k=159986 is the smallest Sierpinski base 5 number.

    After doing most of the initial work himself, Robert posted in the mersenneforum.org on 28 September 2004, and thus, the distributed effort began. Other principle players in the development, management, and growth of the project are Lars Dausch, Geoff Reynolds, Anand S Nair, and Thomas Masser.

Interesting. My i3-6100 takes about 2.75 hours.

Edit: Stock CPU clocks, but DDR4-2666.

Luckly I'm near the edge of speed, running the latest gen i5 6600k, OCed to 4.3ghz and with 3200mhz, dual channel, Rank #2 RAM. As a result, tasks are running just under 2h each. Yay! I'm better than the estimate....

... until I get to trusty 2ghz dual core LGA 775 and 1st Gen 2.4ghz APU, both of which estimate around 18h. Mergh. Oh well.


I'd up the challenge estimates to "3h on fast PCs" and "10h+ on slower machines".

AMD Interlagos 12 core = 24hrs!! Have two!!! 24 cores[/img]


For the i7, as well as any other hyperthreaded CPU, you'll almost always want to run LLR tasks with hyperthreading turned off (or alternatively set BOINC to run with 50% of CPUs).

Your task run times will be at least twice as long (sometimes longer), negating the benefit of running twice as many tasks simultaneously.

AMD CPUs all suck at LLR and Genefer. That might sound like a generalization, but it's not. AMD messed up their AVX implementation and there's currently a huge performance gap between Intel and AMD with this type of processing. They're cost effective (i.e., inexpensive), so you can get a lot of cores for your dollars (and a lot of crunching). They just can't run LLR or Genefer very quickly.

My i5-4670K (essentially a non-Devils-Canyon, non-hyperthreaded version of your i7 CPU with a slightly smaller cache), running at stock speeds, is taking about 4 to 5 hours per SR5 task (SR5 tasks do vary in size somewhat.) So it's got a smaller cache and a slower clock speed than your CPU -- but except for the hyperthreading the two CPUs are nearly identical.

Interesting. My i3-6100 takes about 2.75 hours.

Edit: Stock CPU clocks, but DDR4-2666.

How stable is your DDR4 @ 2666? I have read reports where anything at 2400 or higher is unstable.

The i3 6100 with LGA 1151 socket motherboard can be picked up for about $139 as a bundle and which is a phenomenal deal. European pricing is about twice that amount. :-(

Meanwhile, I'm paying ~310 USD for those. Naturally with the cheapest board available, so RAM would be stuck to 2133mhz.

I thought that i7 were better cpu than i3 or i5. Oh well.

Interesting. My i3-6100 takes about 2.75 hours.

Edit: Stock CPU clocks, but DDR4-2666.

How stable is your DDR4 @ 2666? I have read reports where anything at 2400 or higher is unstable.

The i3 6100 with LGA 1151 socket motherboard can be picked up for about $139 as a bundle and which is a phenomenal deal. European pricing is about twice that amount. :-(

Meanwhile, I'm paying ~310 USD for those. Naturally with the cheapest board available, so RAM would be stuck to 2133mhz.

The Micro Center has the I3-6100 with a Gigabyte GA-H110M-A LGA 1151 mATX mobo for the price I mention above. You are right in that it only supports up to 2133 but it is a great deal for the price. Unfortunately they do not ship overseas or otherwise I would have picked up two such bundles for PG.

Agreed. The higher IPC + lower TDP (+lower power consumption and bandwidth DDR4 has) would make for a killer cruncher.

Couple that with windows 10 being basically free, as the restrictions of running without a licenses don't really affect crunchers, and you've got yourself some nice systems:
1- 2 of those kits.
2- A 4x4 kit of ram. Or 2 2x4, whichever is cheaper.
3- That Phanteks PSU splitter.
4- 1 PSU 80 Gold PSU. Say, a 430w ATX sized or something like a Seasonic 300w TFX.
5- 2 second hand cheap 80gb HDs (you could even get twice that cheapness to do a RAID setup and prevent data loss)

Throw those on a shelf and you are good to go. And yes, you could run Linux, but I meant this as more of an "average joe" system.

I was almost in tears when I saw their pricing on the I7-4790K at $289 and which is available for as low as $250 during specials. Best price locally is 399 euro or about $445 USD.

Pick-up their I7-4790K bundle ($410 with MSI Z97-Gaming 5 mobo) and the two I3-6100 bundles I describe above and you are really smoking here on PG.

How stable is your DDR4 @ 2666? I have read reports where anything at 2400 or higher is unstable.

Perfectly stable, at 1.2V. It's on a Z170 board, so that helps. I plan to upgrade to an i7 someday.

Message 93119 - Posted: 14 Mar 2016 | 16:18:16 UTC

Several of the posts in this thread note average times for a CPU type, but these are all going to be slightly less informative than they could be due to the fact that all SR5 units are not created equally. More specifically, the FFT size varies depending on the workunit, and these variations are both significant and variable by CPU.

For example, consider the following CPU:
Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E5-1650 v3 @ 3.50GHz (This is stock clocked with 32GB of stock DDR4 running with HT on, but only on 50% cores--i.e., 6 units at a time). For those who are less familiar with Xeon CPUs, this one is very similar to the Haswell-E i7 series. So far, this box has completed SR5 work with four different FFT sizes with the following average times (rounded to the nearest 5 minutes) by FFT...

FFT = 400k Avg. time = 3 hours 45 minutes
FFT = 480k Avg. time = 4 hours 35 minutes
FFT = 512k Avg. time = 4 hours 50 minutes
FFT = 576k Avg. time = 5 hours 15 minutes

As you can see, these times vary quite a bit. More importantly, this variation will itself vary by CPU type given substantial differences in a) CPU cache size and speed and (potentially) b) RAM speed.

But why would a i7-4790k take over 10hrs? Is there a better processor like the i3-6100 for this? I assumed that the i7 were above a i3. Even the e5-2620 v2 takes 10 hrs, with 32gb of memory.

I don't get it.

But why would a i7-4790k take over 10hrs? Is there a better processor like the i3-6100 for this? I assumed that the i7 were above a i3. Even the e5-2620 v2 takes 10 hrs, with 32gb of memory.

I don't get it.

Do you have HT on? If so, then that explains a lot it: a combination of high FFT sized WUs could overwhelm the cache, causing even worse of a memory bottleneck.

Turn HT off and those tasks should complete within 3~4h.

I thought that i7 were better cpu than i3 or i5. Oh well.


They are. But the devil is always in the details. Your i7 is faster than my i5:

An i7 is essentially an i5 with hyperthreading -- but it also has a slightly larger cache. So an i7 with hyperthreading disabled should outperform an otherwise identical i5, even though you're disabling the main difference between an i7 and an i5. (That feature, hyperthreading, is useful in some circumstances but detrimental in others.)

With hyperthreading off, your i7 should be faster than my i5 because of the large cache and its higher clock speed, assuming both CPUs are running at stock speed. (The i7-4770K runs at a slightly faster stock clock than the i5-4670K, and the Devil's Canyon refresh i7-4790K runs even faster.)

When I built this system, I bought the i5 because it's primarily used for LLR or Genefer, for which hyperthreading shouldn't be used. Although HT would be useful for some other things, mostly I care about LLR and Genefer performance and it wasn't worth paying significantly more for a feature I would turn off most of the time.

It is complicated! I'll write in more detail later. CPU generation and supported instruction set feature into this. Also memory configuration and performance, but not memory quantity directly providing there is enough.

What ram is on the i7-4790k system?

The E5-2620 v2 is relatively low clock and doesn't support FMA, so it loses quite a bit of relative performance per clock compared to newer CPUs.

Ok, here's the abbreviated guide to Intel CPU performance for bigger LLR tasks, which includes SR5. This does not include smaller tasks, where you just get as much CPU clock as you can and you can't go far wrong. It also doesn't include AMD CPUs, since they took a different design decision early on which means they're highly inefficient at these tasks.

In general, a higher CPU clock can get more work done up to a point where you're memory bandwidth limited. More cores also means more memory bandwidth demand. You have a balancing act here. Too high a CPU demand means you're memory limited. Too much memory bandwidth, and you're CPU limited. In many cases the CPU will be limited by ram, and it pays to optimise memory further.

CPU clock: faster is generally better, but you will get diminishing returns if there isn't enough memory bandwidth to feed it. This is particularly a problem with the quad core higher clocked CPUs which only have dual channel ram.

CPU cache: doesn't make too much of a difference. If the task is too big to fit in the CPU, you'll be limited by the ram performance. There seems to be a slight gain if tasks are only a little bigger than the cache, so having a bigger cache may help in those situations. I wouldn't worry about picking an i7 over an i5 to get more cache. Note if you run multiple cores, typically you get 1.5MB/core on i5, 2.0MB/core for mainstream i7 CPUs. Enthusiast and server equivalents can go higher. Exception are some Broadwell CPUs with 128MB of L4 cache, which makes memory performance irrelevant as that's big enough to run anything current.

Hyper-threading: generally speaking this doesn't provide any benefit to LLR. Disable it and you get the full performance running all cores. If you want to leave it enabled for other uses, run only as many tasks as real cores. Advanced tip: you get even better performance if you manually set affinity so that boinc tasks can never occupy the HT cores e.g. use only odd or even numbered cores under Windows. This seems to eliminate some inefficiency compared to not doing this.

Instruction set: Look up the CPU on intel's database. Look at the "Instruction Set Extension" line. If it says AVX, that's good. If it says AVX 2.0, even better! If neither, not so good. AVX was introduced with Sandy Bridge and gave about a doubling of performance relative to before. AVX 2.0 was introduced with Haswell. Strictly speaking it isn't interesting, but introduced with it was FMA which gives about 50% more again. So if you get offered a 1st generation i7 cheap, decline, as it will suck at LLR. Also beware the Pentiums and the likes have these features removed.

Ram channels: most systems support dual channel. If you care at all about performance, you want to run dual channel. It is as simple as 2 channels = 2x the bandwidth of 1 channel. Pre-built systems might only run single channel to allow more upgrade capability, but this will be a significant performance hit. If you have a system that supports quad channel ram, I don't think you need me to tell you to fill it up!

Ram speed: generally faster is better. Beware that really high end ram e.g. DDR4 above 3200 or so will start getting disproportionately expensive and compatibility starts becoming a big problem. Certainly aim for 3000 or so since it doesn't cost much more over standard 2133.

Ram rank: this isn't something that is commonly discussed and I only found out after extensive testing to figure out why two similar systems ran with a massive performance difference. I don't fully understand the technical reasons myself, but having more than 1 rank per channel allows for more bandwidth, which as you may have guessed by now, is generally a good thing. The tricky part is this isn't often specified, so you might have to research reviews to see if it is mentioned. 4GB DDR4 modules will likely be single rank. 8GB is a mixture depending. Higher capacity is more likely to be dual rank, but I haven't tested it. Running two single rank modules per channel works like a single dual rank. I also saw this effect in DDR3 but I did less testing on that.

Ram timing: generally tighter is better, but this is a minor effect. Don't worry about this unless you've done everything else first.

So, given all the above, you can't simply say that an i7 will perform better than an i5. My slowest system is actually based on an i5-4570S, running 4 cores at 3.2 GHz with 1600 dual channel ram. It is really ram bandwidth starved. I have two i3-4150T dual core 3.0 GHz systems with dual channel 1600 ram, which run units much faster. So overall, the two i3's work much faster than the single i5.

In another thread I proposed some pure cruncher builds. The latest i3-6100 actually came out highly competitive against i5 and i7 processors in both bang for buck, and performance per watt measures. Basically you have two fast cores and two channels of ram. Since overclocking isn't on the cards you can make do with a basic mobo and low cost ram. Win all around. More in depth investigation into what affects performance is also posted in other threads in this forum.

Did I say this was the short version? :)

The i3 6100 with LGA 1151 socket motherboard can be picked up for about $139 as a bundle and which is a phenomenal deal. European pricing is about twice that amount. :-(


Forgot to reply to this bit, but that price is insane. I can't get the CPU alone for that. If I saw that offer here, I'd basically try and pick up as many as possible before they throw me out of the store! This is perfect to run a crunching farm at low cost.

I was talking to a guy in another forum which seemed quite knowledgeable on the subjet (he was down to knowing how to play with tertiary memory timings to get the absolute best out of his hardware) about this. He told me that the main advantage of dual rank is that single rank can either write or read at a given time, whereas dual rank can do both at the same time.

He also said that almost every non-ecc 4gb stick of RAM is single rank, though there might be one exception or another out there.

Wouldn't be on overclockers.com would it?

4GB DDR4 being single rank I can well believe. Modern DDR3 is likely but I'm not 100% there. I have two 2x4GB DDR3 1600 kits, one bought as recently as early last year, which are both dual rank. Since then I got the cheap Kingston DDR3 1866 2x4GB kits and they're single rank.

I really wish they did 2GB DDR4 modules as I really don't want to get 16GB of ram to perk up a cruncher!

I wonder if high enough bandwidth with low enough request (i3 + DDR4) would be able to nullify the rank's influence....

In short, yes. I included that consideration in my low cost cruncher thread. I don't strictly know how it scales, but I was assuming single rank ram is -20% the performance of dual rank, all else being equal. That's what I saw on the overclocked Skylake CPUs and it wasn't much different on limited Haswell testing.

Been looking at this setup:

i3-6100
Asrock z170a-x1/3.1
Kingston Hyper X Fury DDR4-2666 dual rank. 8gb (x2)

The Asrock accepts up to 3000mhz DDR4.

All for $302. I think its a good deal.

Any other recommendations as for a better setup?

I think I'll sell the dual AMD setup. Going with Intel.

1- Where does it say dual RANK? Because I've never seen a manufacturer advertise that. I think you mistook dual CHANNEL for dual rank, which are two separare (albeit important) things.
2- Check this thread. From the graphs, it seems that RAM speeds don't matter much if you are running only 2 tasks / cores. In other words, it isn't very cost efficient to get an overclocking mobob + OCing RAM and only get an i3 (which doesn't even OC either, btw). So I'd recommend "skimping" on the mobo and RAM and going much cheaper, unless you intend to sell that i3 later and upgrade to a Kaby Lake i5 / i7.

Speaking of forthcoming I7's, Intel has delayed the release of Cannonlake not only into next year but also the second half of next year.

Has anyone heard what new or extra features Cannonlake may offer and particularly as it pertains to PG?

Maybe AVX 512, which could speedup things... if it actually hits the mainstream. You know, Skylake was supposed to have it, then they trolled us saying only Xeons will do. Now we've upped the AVX512 hype to Cannonlake, though they might fail to deliver that as well.

Ofc we still have to wait for LLR / genefer to be rewritten to actually use those instruction sets, but hey, let's look out for that...


... in all honesty, though, I don't care about whatever Intel releases next. I just want AMD to get their act together and release a killer CPU. Because when they do, it's THEN that intel will start release vastly superior stuff instead of regular "a bit better" CPUs.

Okay, actual dual Rank RAM. Good to know.

The above i3 proposed system, ram might be worth having assuming it doesn't actually cost much more than bargain basement stuff. I don't recall much price difference between 2133 and the slightly higher grades but I haven't look too carefully. As for the mobo, again overclocking features isn't really needed, but if the mobo has other features you want, fair enough. Asrock have been perusing bus overclocking of otherwise non-overclocking CPUs, but I'm not familiar enough with that supports what in that department.

I think we could go back a step here. Is this a pure cruncher, or will be be a general system? If general system, there is still sense going higher end.

On AMD Zen, that's another discussion totally... hope we're not already putting too much hardware into the challenge thread!

Yeah, but don't you need Z170 mobo to get RAM speeds higher than 2133? That's my main concearn: not so much the price of the RAM, but more the need for a better mobo that comes with it.

No, this will be a cruncher only. I'm going with the GA-H110M-A and the i3-6100 and the RAM 2133. All for $236.

With just about 19 hours to go, it's time for the usual end of challenge reminder:

At the Conclusion of the Challenge

We would prefer users "moving on" to finish those tasks they have downloaded, if not then please ABORT the WU's instead of DETACHING, RESETTING, or PAUSING.

ABORTING WU's allows them to be recycled immediately; thus a much faster "clean up" to the end of a Challenge. DETACHING, RESETTING, and PAUSING WU's causes them to remain in limbo until they EXPIRE. Therefore, we must wait until WU's expire to send them out to be completed.

Those of you who have been around for a while know that our challenges, while fun, tend to be exceptionally effective as prime-repellents. We almost never find any large primes during challenges.

Not this time.

Yesterday Aus_Karlos found the world record base 5 mega prime 92158*5^2145024+1. This prime is 1,499,313 digits long.

This eliminates k=92158 from the base 5 Sierpinski problem, leaving 33 k's remaining. The base 5 Riesel problem has 77 k's remaining.

Congratulations!!!

Okay, so, THIS GUY, it's like, 12th task, "imma find a world record prime that helps prove a conjecture".

Why.....

I'd rather have Scott Find it. At least it would make sense, given his army of PCs.

But no, let's do it with a 1st gen i7 that doesn't even have AVX.

#mad.


Still, congrats on the finding!

Okay, so, THIS GUY, it's like, 12th task, "imma find a world record prime that helps prove a conjecture".

Why.....

I'd rather have Scott Find it. At least it would make sense, given his army of PCs.

But no, let's do it with a 1st gen i7 that doesn't even have AVX.

#mad.


Still, congrats on the finding!


Did I ever tell you the story of how I found that big GFN prime in my signature? There's a reason I call it "my lucky number". :)

That was on PRPnet, it doesn't count. Demand isn't as high as Boinc.

The wingman has a Xeon E3-1231 v3, which has AVX and FMA3.

I always tell people that you don't need to have the fastest computers to find primes. The wingman has hyperthreading turned on, and is running a huge cache. Even though his computer is significantly newer and faster, he'll return the result several days after the prime finder did. You'll usually win the race when the other guy gives you a three day headstart.

If you're seeing a lot of inconclusive or invalid results, you have a problem that needs to be fixed.

There's a very high number of bad results coming back during this challenge:

Of the tasks that have been returned successfully:

12546 (38%) are pending validation. [12199 (37%) / 0 (0%) / 347 (1%)]
20205 (61%) have been successfully validated. [19635 (60%) / 0 (0%) / 570 (2%)]
50 (0%) were invalid. [50 (0%) / 0 (0%) / 0 (0%)]
120 (0%) are inconclusive. [118 (0%) / 0 (0%) / 2 (0%)]


The usual cause of this is too much overclocking.

While it's less than 1%, it's still an unusually large number of bad results.

And we are done! Great challenge everyone. Here's the final statistics:

Challenge: From Pi to Paddy
App: 19 (SR5-LLR)
(As of 2016-03-17 03:29:01 UTC)

65884 tasks have been sent out. [CPU/GPU/anonymous_platform: 64693 (98%) / 0 (0%) / 1191 (2%)]

Of those tasks that have been sent out:

6304 (10%) came back with some kind of an error. [6301 (10%) / 0 (0%) / 3 (0%)]
40480 (61%) have returned a successful result. [39359 (60%) / 0 (0%) / 1121 (2%)]
18952 (29%) are still in progress. [18890 (29%) / 0 (0%) / 62 (0%)]

Of the tasks that have been returned successfully:

12208 (30%) are pending validation. [11880 (29%) / 0 (0%) / 328 (1%)]
28067 (69%) have been successfully validated. [27276 (67%) / 0 (0%) / 791 (2%)]
92 (0%) were invalid. [92 (0%) / 0 (0%) / 0 (0%)]
113 (0%) are inconclusive. [111 (0%) / 0 (0%) / 2 (0%)]

The current leading edge (i.e., latest work unit for which work has actually been sent out to a host) is n=2182813. The leading edge was at n=2145542 at the beginning of the challenge. Since the challenge started, the leading edge has advanced 1.74% as much as it had prior to the challenge!

Of course, the most important statistic is "1", as in 1 prime found!

Now the cleanup begins. With short deadlines, the cleanup should go quickly and will probably be done in about two weeks.

Cleanup Status:

Mar-16: From Pi to Paddy: 12320 tasks outstanding; 12224 affecting individual (296) scoring positions; 9395 affecting team (72) scoring positions.

just noticedin the last few mins that Sierpinski was born on (American) pi day, March 14 1882 (wikipedia). I guess he had to be a mathematician with such an auspicious start.

And I wonder if there is any connection between Poland and St Pat?

might want to check overall user standings

User statistics for 2016 are definitely incorrect.


bump

TheDawgz sent a PM directly to Charley - We are sure that once he has a moment free; he will correct this.

We all thank him for the time and effort that he puts into making these challenges fun and exciting!!!

TheDawgz have heard back from Charley - he has been and still is swamped at work ("very looooong days") - he will deal with this as soon as possible - but, it will likely not happen until next week sometime.
