1) Message boards : Number crunching : Geek Pride Day Challenge (Message 155723)

My rate dropped from 88-92 down to 60 overnight do to so many Error and aborted by user on the 28th and 29th even hundreds of Errors from good known members.


Of all the tasks you did that were errors or abandoned, were any of them prime?


From what I see we did not find any Primes this year, but we will have to wait and see.
There are to many to review so I would not know myself.

Is 12% high for aborted Tasks?


Doesn't really matter. Aborted tasks are probably from people who accidentally downloaded too many tasks and aborted them so they have a better chance of returning a result 1st and getting credit for finding a prime instead of being the DC'er.

Doesn't change anything in the challenge.

Aborted tasks are better than abandoned tasks. IE: Tasks that are removed by means other than the BOINC client whether it's deleting them from the host directly or issuing a project reset on the BOINC client.

Either way, it doesn't effect the scoring at all here.

Only negative effect is the person who downloads the resends will almost definitely be a DC'er.

Well my review is they are members that know what they are doing and doing before each Challenge.
You do not download 900 tasks and then aborted them and do the same the next day.
Most aborted tasks are Second run tasks and will not be 1st that is why I think know long time members do this.
I just do not care to complete tasks that have been aborted a day ago knowing that the tasks was completed already.

"Doesn't change anything in the challenge." But it is not all about the challenge but about finding the Prime.....
But I also see your Point.


Keep in mind that badly updated drivers can cause lots of errors on GPU challenges. I have generally avoided that on my Windows machines, but it happened on one Ubuntu Linux box this time around that I did not notice for a bit. Can run through hundreds of erroring work units fairly quickly.



Yes I do see hundreds of errors and it seems that the members is not managing their own hardware. But that has been a problem here as well as all other BOINC Projects.

Seeing way to many Aborted Tasks as it seems to be the norm before a Challenge Series starts now.

I guess TeAm AnandTech is not the Top Team to be a member any longer :)
At lest this way TeAm AnandTech may not take the top place but they are still going to take 1st and 2nd Place.

What is the Point of Teams, we are back to changing Teams for events and making Team events pointless as in Cloud Computing.
