That computer has not gone crazy again down loading hundreds of tasks.
Not sure what went wrong, but it seems fine now.

The challenges are fun, why I do it.
Thanks to PG for doing them. I believe the best run challenges there are.

I heat my house in the cool/cold weather and shut down most systems in the hot weather
At least two boxes in every room. Except the kitchen, that's off limits!!
My wife thinks I am crazy, and I have to agree with her.
Started with folding at home 15 years ago, I got "The bug"

I think rented servers are ok. You want to play you have to pay, one way or another.
I would do it but then I would not get the heat output to heat my house.
Seems like a good option for those who live in warm climates who don't need the heat.
Or if you live in a small apartment and don't have room for a DC farm.

I don't do this for the points or to place first. I do it for the badges!
Well and the few primes I have been lucky enough to find.

Thanks again for putting these challenges together, much appreciated.
Happy New Year everyone. Stay safe and healthy.
Now lets find some primes.

and did not change the app_config to use 4 core per task.

You know you can set "Multi-threading: Max # of threads for each task" on https://www.primegrid.com/prefs.php?subset=project as described above? /JeppeSN


It was a new OS install too and I C & P the config file from another system.

I have to use the app_config file because I have 4, 6, 8 core CPUs and dual socket boards.
So using the universal preference setting would not work. I am running 15 systems @home.
Going to try to get a couple more running today.

I guess I could put all the 4 core on default, 6 cores on home 8 on school...AMD,Linux on...
Its just easier to use app_config

I had one computer NZXT8600K, had downloaded 560 or more tasks. oh no Mr.Bill
It is set to 0 and 0 cache.
I did change the i5-8600k 6 core to an i7-9700k 8 core and did not change the app_config to use 4 core per task. It was still set to use 3 so two cores were idle for a while. Fixed.
I don't think that was why it DL all those tasks. I deleted them and will keep an eye on it.

EVGA z370MB, i7-9700k, Corsair vengeance 2x8gb DDR3000, onboard graphics,
BOINC ver 7.14.2 win10 pro 2004.

Hello, is there anyway to MT the GFN tasks on a CPU or is it just LLR that can MT?

MT is only available on GFN21 which is not part of this challenge.


Dang, that's too bad. Thanks for the reply.

Good luck everyone!

I gotta tell y'all I have been so hyped for the Tour de Primes. I was super disappointed I only got a double check last year, but that machine was slow as all getout. My new machine is plowing through the PPSEs like nobody's business so I think I got a shot. I can't wait for that sweet, sweet taste of prime discovery, I really think it might happen this year.

I... don't have a lot else going on in my life.


Good luck Zach I sure hope you find a prime, it is a good feeling.
I think one is heading your way, eep on crunching.
PPSE and GFN16 are your best bet
