1) Message boards : Number crunching : Badges III (Message 138096)
Posted 168 days ago by DarrylProject donor
Mainly because of TdP, I started working on GFN-17 Mega about 10 days ago with a couple of GPU's and got lucky already. My rarest badge so far:



Since it's my first mega prime I also got:



And as it's my 2nd T5K prime of TdP:



It occurs to me that if someone finds their first ever mega prime in the mountain stage of TdP, they could get 5 badges in one go! (I guess 6 if they were really lucky and eliminated a K from a conjecture as well - has this ever happened?).

Sorry for the silly question but which has better odds of finding a Mega? PPS Mega or GFN 17 Mega?
I wouldn't mind an "M" :D


I'm not sure about PPS Mega, but according to https://www.primegrid.com/stats_genefer.php there is a prime found on GFN-17 Mega once every 30 thousand workunits roughly.

I'm optimistically running GFN-17 Mega for Tour de Primes but at only 500 workunits per day, I've got a bit less than 50% chance of getting one this month.

Would be interested to know the stats for PPS Mega.

Finally earned 'Double Jade' PPS work units.


Impressive! I think this is the first such badge on Primegrid on any sub-project?

I believe there is an option in Boinc manager to only show active tasks. You can toggle between all tasks and active ones.

Perhaps it is just that only 2 of the 4 are in progress and the other 2 are hidden in the current view?

My first CPU-only Sapphire badge. Also the total number of SGS primes I found so far is itself a prime number (53) :)
