11) Message boards : AP26 - AP27 Search : AP26 Found!!! (Message 22473)

WHat??? suspend the project?? I've been hitting it hard to get the barney badge and only need 360K more. Using 8 vid card shouldn't be very long. How big is the current queue? I could dump my PSP sieve and SOB wus in progress and load up to get the barney badge. Don't tell me I wasted 1.169 Meg of computation without the chance to get the badge. I'd have stopped at 1M if I thought this was a possibility.

What other project can end before I get my badge levels? I.E which should I not bother running?

I'm serious about getting the barney badge, so serious, in fact did abort every non AP wu in progress and 12 were SOB with 35 hours elapsed each. Set cache to 10 days.

Updated sub project ratio chart and my ratio graph after 2 weeks.

Come on now, the truth of math is clearly in question, as I should have atleast one AP23 if not two to keep the math honest.

I've been trying to update my excel sheet each time a new AP was found. I didn't catch each and every change, and sometimes total would advance by more than one between times I looked at them, even if it was less than 12 hours between checking. I created a chart which shows the ratio of one AP to the next lower AP. The Primegrid average is around 4 until you get up to AP 25/26. In other words the average participant should get 4 AP20's for each AP21, and 4 AP 21's for each AP22, and so on.

Here's how mine have tracked:

I was waiting and hoping for an AP23 when bang.... AP25!

I guess, I could accept that....If I had to.

OK it's a bit more than a couple weeks later and it seems I did get the AP20 and 21's necesarry to get up to the multiplier of 4 before I snagged my next ap22. Still expecting my AP23 any ole second now.

Come on John, Sending me an ap23 now would help preserve the entire project.....not to mention the ratios.... LOL

My AMD 965 Deneb does an SOB in 175 hours total. My Intel Q6600 takes 200 hours total.

I finally get some for my "AMD Phenom(tm) 9650 Quad-Core Processor" desktop,
BUT it wants 624 hours to do the work - that is more hour than the deadline given.

What is the AVERAGE computers that do the work in 220 hours?
This is one of the fastest of the AMD line of processors, but it is slow
compared to that low average number. Also my slower/years-older AMD64 will do the
work only a few hours slower than the new faster Phenom.

do you have any "bootable" cd? If so, then hook up the cd/dvd. Set the bios to boot from cd then HD and reboot. If it boots fine from the CD then your Mobo, PSU, vid card, and ram are likely not the culprit and you have a defunct HD.

I took the project wide AP26 data and put it into MS Excel. Then made up this little historical AP26 ratio chart.

Looking at my own data and the project data, I would think I should be or should have found an AP23 by now since if it was found, then the ratio amount under my AP22 column would show a 4 if that AP23 was found. It appears that a muliplier of 4 is about right for all but the AP25 finds.

But should I be finding the AP23 or do I have to get all the 4's before I get the AP23? I've been watching and it seems like I have to get the previous 4's before the higher AP's are found. So, I would need my AP20 hits to be 64, and my AP21's to be 16. This means I have more crunching to do. I certainly should be finding an AP21 shortly.
