1) Message boards : Number crunching : International Day of Education Challenge (Message 136603)

Education challenge huh.

We don't need no education.
We don't need no thought control.
No dark sarcasm in the classroom.
Hey teachers, leave those kids alone.
All in all you're just a another brick in the wall.
"Pink Floyd"

Sorry had to do it! Great tune for sure.

Nice short challenge, nice and cool outside.
Good luck.
1st challenge of the year, good time to wish everyone a "Happy New year!"
May the primes be with you.

I think the resource share set to 0 or --- will stop the extra tasks being sent to you.
But when it is set to 0 and you want to bunker, the resource share can't be set to 0.
It sends one task out for one task returned set at 0.

Oh wow a mega-prime,, thank you. What a great birthday present!


Congrats! From this event?


Thank you. Yes it is a PPS-DIV prime.

From the challenge update post above at the bottom.

"A second PPS-DIV prime has been found. Like the first prime of this challenge, this prime was double xGF divisor. We're still looking for a Fermat divisor!

Congratulations to Bill1024 for finding this mega prime! TimT was the double checker."

Byron, app_config.xml files you make your self and put into the directory of the project you are running. If you did not make one and put it there, then there won't be one there.
You can make one for every project you run if you want/need to.

You have to have show hidden folders and files checked. You can find that by typing
show hidden files and folders in the start area lower left corner.

/seti
/WCG
Then the same for the other projects you run

A lot of the errors are mine from one stubborn computer that does not like the memory at its rated speed. It is DDR4 3600 19.20.20.40 T2
AT 3600 it errors, but it can run good @3500, 3700, 3800 and 3900. @4000 windows freezes
It will even run 3500 16.17.17.38 T1
It has been running real good last couple days at 3700.18.19.19.40 T1 not one more error

Same system last challenge, gave me a bunch of errors. Different brand and speed ram.
But it too did not like the rated DR4 3000 it would run at 2800 2900 3200 and 3200.
So I changed brands and sped to the DDR4 3600. Does not like 3600
I have no idea why. All the other settings are all the same, DDR V and VVT and so on.
I saved the BIOS profile so not to make the mistake again with the wrong setting.

I will say the speed from 3100 to 3700+ makes a good bit of difference in task times when doing one task per core HT off, that's fore sure.

Sorry about all the errors

System is an EVGA z370FTW motherboard.
i7-8086k CPU - water loop cooling
G-skill DDR4 3600 19.20.20.40 old ram was vengeance DDR4 3000, both 2x8gb.
EVGA 1080Ti black GPU with water-block
EVGA 850w P2 PSU
Samsung 981 256gb NVME OS drive

PS,
Should mention that it did run at rated speed doing other projects like WCG
That even makes it more weird that it is the PG LLR tasks that made it do that

Good luck everyone, lets find some primes. Lots of them!

Last challenge I had a bunch of errors from one system. One wrong memory setting can really make a difference.
It returned two good results then went down hill from there. Think I fixed it.
Good luck!
