my idea came from the fact that the SoB-Client (and mprime) are able to pause and resume the work on a candidate so I thought it would be 'easy' to stop the job after a certain amount of iterations and send the needed informations back to the server which can resend these informations as a new WU (I have absolutely no idea about the amount of work this would cause).
For those who want the chance to find a prime there could be the WU-switch I mentioned.
Is there a posibility to split the SoB WUs in smaller pieces/WUs?
Imho this would have some advantages:
- people which crunch only some hours per day/per week can contribute to SoB
- if a small WU is lost (error/hardware crash ...) the 'wasted' time is lower compared to a full WU
Maybe it is possible to use some checkboxes in the projectselection like:
Send full WU = Yes/No
Send small WU =Yes/No
