1) Message boards : Generalized Fermat Prime Search : GFN-17-LOW will finish soon (Message 152598)
Posted 201 days ago by Lobes06
Is there any way we could get a weekly update here as to how many tasks are left? I just find this strangely fascinating. Even if its just a rounded approximation?

I'm sure there is and I'm just not able to figure it out, but how do I tell how many GNF-17 tasks I personally have done (both 1st and 2nd)?

Probably no way.

I think that client needs to get it from server by itself and add necessary information to client_state.xml.


I put the PC on a different network and download the necessary files successfully via BOINC. Now it is back on the more restrictive network, but is able to download and upload work units without problem.

Thanks for the help!

4) Message boards : Number crunching : World Emoji Day Challenge (Message 150898)

My goal was to break the top 200 of this challenge. Finished at 199 :)

This was done using a single 1080Ti running non-stop (except while I was using it to play games one evening). Could have been a bit higher had I not played a little GTA5.

I downloaded the file from here:

http://www.primegrid.com/download/?C=M;O=D

And put it into the right directory on my machine. It all looked good.

But as soon as I try to get a task, it BOINC deletes that file, and tries to download it again.

Is there any way to prevent that?

Yes, turns out it is a network security guard that is preventing it from downloading properly.

If I hook up the PC to a less restrictive network, get everything downloaded properly so the work can start, then hook it back up to the previous network, will it work? Meaning, do you think it tries to download that .exe file every time an update is requested to the server?

I was able to download the file manually, and put it in the correct directory..but each time the project is started in BOINC, it deletes it and tries to download it again.

Just installed BOINC, connected the PrimeGrid project, set my preferences to get Proth Prime Search Extended LLR (CPU), and every time the project tries to get a task, I get the following:

7/8/2021 2:12:29 PM | PrimeGrid | [error] Checksum or signature error for llr_wrapper_8.04_windows_x86_64.exe
7/8/2021 2:12:29 PM | PrimeGrid | [error] File llr_wrapper_8.04_windows_x86_64.exe has wrong size: expected 336896, got 968


I'm running BOINC as Administrator. Windows 10.

Any ideas?

Ah I see thank you for that explanation!

I'm trying to snag a prime in each of the different GFNs. I found one in 15 and 16 fairly quickly...now I'm on 17-low. Even got one in Sophie Germain during one of the challenges.

Yes yes, I know the odds, its just my personal quest and I enjoy pursuing it.

Hello! When looking at the following page:

http://www.primegrid.com/stats_genefer.php

Specifically, at n=17 (131072) Low, it shows "Primes" at 104. This number has stayed the same for a very long time.

When I click on that link, I am met with 288 found primes, the latest, as of this writing, just a few days ago.

I take it those numbers aren't auto-updated? Can we get them updated, at least, more frequently than they are now?

Just a request. No biggie.
