In chat Mike Goetz said the double checker on one of the DIV primes just found was a Digital Ocean droplet! :)

jshriver that's a good number of droplets! You will race ahead!

We are doing great as a team with only 13 members! Right there with the big boys :)

Figured I would start this thread to help our team members learn how to get things crunching on Google Colab.

matzetoni I think could give us a few good lessons.

Started with 31 Virtual Machine Cores and just nearly doubled that with 10 more Digital Ocean droplets tonight. 61 VM cores in it for the challenge. Now it should get interesting.

Price for the new 30 cores for 5 days is $25. Entertainment budget used to be way more than $25 so this is entertaining, so spending a well spent $25 on entertaining, helping myself, and helping the team in the name of Primegrid, Primes, and Mathematics.


This is began with a referral code I was given for $50 in free credit at http://www.digitalocean.com

I had a little Linux experience, but not much, and I found this to be fairly simple for basic Linux knowledge. Create a VM, connect to it, run a few commands and install boinc, configure, and you are up and crunching on a remote machine.

The 3core 1GB memory standard VM's are great for LLR if you can get some Xeon Gold CPUs. Running the ones setup now all as -t1 but you can run it -t3 for more speed. Lotta bang for the buck. That 3c VM costs $15 for an entire month. That's 50 cents a day! Cup of coffee costs double that around me.

If anyone wants a referral code, you may feel free to use mine - https://m.do.co/c/cd10b71c2e5d This gets you $50 in free initial credit which I think needs to be used in a month, not sure about the month time limit tho.

We should start a separate thread about this tho it's perfect for challenges. Fire a bunch up, crunch, destroy and delete them when done.
