New project The Ramanujan Machine is up and running - https://rnma.xyz/boinc/



Cool! Signed up and am crunching a few now.
2) Message boards : Generalized Fermat Prime Search : GFN-1x Small Primes search starts 2021-01-21 (Message 154228)

Planned to start in March, after TdP. It seems that old software could be used with just a small modification - GPU vector size must be limited to 64. There are some GPU models which currently selecting vector of 128 or 256, they will receive a small performance hit, but this change makes better use of checkpoints. GPUs which already selecting vector of 64 or less will not notice anything.


Thank you.

I'm still working on possible implementation of GFN-14 search - if everything goes well, we can start new search somewhere in the beginning of January, may be Jan 09. But it's still subject to change.


Anything new on the GN-14 search?

I am thinking that I'll start off putting all my gpu's on GFN-16 to try an get a prime first, and if I manage that then I'll switch them over to GFN-17 for the remainder. AS for the cpu's, start with ppse. What I'm wondering is which is best odds wise for cpu's, ppse or GFN-16? What are others thinking??

Not to sound like a dumb a$$ or anything ha ha but..... challenge cleanup... So doesthat occur just like normal crunching? As i just keep crunching gfn17 and the server will just hand out the cleanuo tasks like regular tasks?


Correct.

But...

The truth about cleanups is that mostly they're about waiting for abandoned tasks to time out and be resent by the server. Mostly, all the cleanup tasks have already been sent out to be crunched. Most of them will be crunched successfully, but a few won't.

So there's usually not a whole lot of cleanup tasks available. Often, none at all. Cleanup tasks, when available, are shown on the front page like this:

* Only 20 tasks, 12 affecting scoring positions, of Geminids Shower Challenge (GFN-21) cleanup work are currently available! *


If the message is red, there's a lot of them available. If it's not red, then the number is fairly insignificant.

At the moment, there's no GFN-17 cleanup tasks available.

These numbers are updated every 15 minutes.
