1) Message boards : General discussion : Christmas (Message 7494)
Posted 4335 days ago by JustasProject donor
Hou Hou Hou,

Christmas is coming, and I'd like to propose a fundrasing drive. I think it might be great idea, that everyone, who donate during Christmas drive get Santa bag (or something similar) next to name.

Any supporters?

Hi,

This might have been mentioned in other threads, so sorry for repeating. Can anyone say how big TPS range is going to be. I mean - we have almost completed 25000M. Will we go to 50000M if we don't find a prime, or will we just increase n?

i may seem extremely stupid but what is a factor? i have found 115 factors but do not know what they are.

My 2xCoreDuo @ 1,66 GHz w/ 2GB ram takes ~23 hours for Cullen, but average rate [CreditGranted/CPUTime] is bigger by slight margin than for LLR TPS.
On the other hand AuthenticAMD AMD Athlon(tm) 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 3800+ with GB of ram and WVB is crunching LLR TPS with a little bit better ratio than Cullen. But I think it could do much better if it had a WXP 64 bit ed, instead of WVB.

Hi,

I just had an opportunity to attach 4 dual core Xeons system to boinc and got this error message. Attaching was done via ssh, no GUI.

Anyone had similar problems? What does "there was work for other platforms" mean, except what it literally means? ;)

Hi,

I have just noticed that there is no progress of woo WU's in Search status, and server is not issuing them any more. Are there any problems with woo wu's?

What (exactly) could cullen and woodall numbers be used for?

Are there uses for these numbers or is this just a mathematical timesink?



mmmm B I think. Kind of proving how powerfull computing can get.

ok, we have the 10^googolplex to one chance of solving the RSA challenge. Then it could really get funny...



Well... Think again... There are no RSA challenge anymore... Sad but true... Looks like they decided it's waste of money when quantum computers are going to be rolled out after few years.
