Yeah? No, it never goes away. Just plain annoying messages. Best to ignore it.

I was wondering what the split is between Cullen and Woodall tasks in this Magellan 500th Anniversary Challenge?

Is it 50:50 or are users favouring one over the other.

Is there a tactical advantage points wise to choose one?

We are where we would have discovered the prime ... if it had not been discovered (outside PrimeGrid) in March. /JeppeSN


Does that mean there is another Primegrid-like project somewhere?

8) Message boards : Number crunching : GTX 1660 Ti good choice over normal 1660? (Message 144020)

My observations - don't buy the short format single fan GPUs as they don't last very long running 24/7. I have no idea how the bitcoin miners manage 1000s of GPUs as I only have a few dozen and they take turns in giving up for good.

Most successful brands I found are ASUS, Gigabyte and EVGA. MSI X series is OK too.

Least successful are anything that says it is for a compact chassis.

It might impact people who rent servers. They MIGHT cancel the severs before the end of the challenge because they think they are safely on #1. But does that ever really happen?

In fact it is really annoying to get Ninja'd when you have outlaid hundreds or maybe thousands of dollars on renting hardware for a challenge. Personally, I closely watch the stats and if necessary rent more crunchers from AWS or TSC. Actually, within a challenge, I wish the stats were updated hourly but that would add to the load on PrimeGrid's and bok's Free-DC servers.
