1082957 tasks have been sent out.

The last time we had a challenge that sent out more than a million tasks was in November of 2017, when the Pierre de Fermat challenge sent out a combined 1159921 GFN-15, GFN-16, and GFN-17-Low tasks.

Of the 1082957 Tasks how many where Aborted by user?

With this challenge being as popular as it is, too bad it isn't running longer than 5 days.


There's a lot of sweating crunchers who are glad it's not any longer!!! Especially with what the weather forecast looks like for this weekend.

Also, this challenge is about as far as I want to push the server's database.


The challenge started before the heat wave, is worst now, but temps will be cooler tomorrow (based upon where I live). One could argue that the heat wave is caused by this challenge. :-)

I hear what you are saying here but I do not even see you running any computers in this Event so way even Post this?

Summer is Summer and it is Hot in some areas and not so hot in other areas.
But Summer is also the Highest Cost for Electricity at least here in the USA.

Any Longer would push users away being Summer and 100°F

What do you mean by "payoff" Find a Prime?


yes


We all run task and some are wingman and some are not.


I was not actually complaining. I was just curious. Sorry if it came across as a complaint.

More generally I am wondering how random the queuing system is. Obviously I am sure there is lots of randomness in it, but how influenced is it by things like Challenges?

EDIT: another duplicate.

I do not think so, I know we are running a Lot of Aborted by user Tasks today but that is all part running PG

I am not participating in as much as I have no intention of basing my subscriptions on what challenges are under way. (I would have very little chance of a payoff, so I try not to notice they are even happening.) However I noticed one machine is doing a lot of PPS. Am I being roped in as wing man for everyone else doing the challenge?

I see "Completed and validated (1st)" on some of your PPS (LLR) v8.03 Tasks.

You can also select to not run PPS (LLR) v8.03 Tasks on your Hosts.

Is "13 primes have been found so far!" normal for this Event or do we see more most of the time?
"1 xGFN divisor!" I think this was me.
Now I know what that is...Divides xGF(2750266,7,4)
T5K, https://primes.utm.edu/primes/page.php?id=126656
701*2^2750267+1 is a Factor of xGF(2750266,7,4)!!!! (10616.880000 seconds)


It's been a long time since we've run a PPS challenge. What I can say is participation is very high, and we're crunching a whole lot of tasks. We had been doing about 16K tasks per day before the challenge, and now we're doing close to 200K per day.
Task

Thanks for the answer.
Going to get harder to fined them but I just now got an email finding another Prime https://primes.utm.edu/primes/page.php?id=126664

Note that Mike's post said there are only 41 invalid task for all users. One of them even claimed a composite number was prime. /JeppeSN


As an aside, it's two false TRP primes now, both from the same computer (which is not bcavnaugh's).

If you're seeing invalid tasks, it almost always means the computer has a problem you need to correct.

Thank you, although no big deal.
I am only one of one other that had the same Completed, validation inconclusive.
