Posted 3334 days ago by Mumps [MM]
Lucky me.. Go on vacation for a week, and my ISP cuts contact on day two. So no challenge for me this time. Will be back in force for the next one :) Can't let my cores go to waste too much. Hope to be able to upgrade with more cores and maybe som GPU's for the next challenge.

Well, unofficially speaking, we at SETI.USA hope you had a wonderful vacation. It sure was good for us. :-)

Congratulation to all participants and the administration for this nice challenge.

Especially to the incredible shanky123 and team S.USA who fights down Team Norway! This was amazing to see ;)

Unfortunately there will be no interesting finish between mumps and my again. I will stop (not all ;) ) crunching at this level.

Good luck for all of you math freaks an challenge warriors!!

Jörg aka marodeur6

I second that! A job well done by all involved!

You sure made me work hard to make it past you this time Jörg. Maybe I can finally retire some of these 3.2 Ghz P4's. :-)

This has been a very enjoyable challenge.

Hmmm .... getting the following:

PG is already using 120MB, isn't an extra 476.84MB a bit excessive, just to get another WU?


You only need 14.86MB more disk space.


I know I only need another 14.86MB, but I already have 461.98MB of free disk space and thats a lot more than whats actually needed to run a WU. :)

Your BOINC preferences are probably configured to limit your disk usage. Look at you Preference settings related to disk and memory usage. Both on the project (Under Your account, "When and how BOINC uses your computer") as well as locally. (Locally it's under Advanced->Preferences->disk and memory usage.) It's either the "Leave at least x Gig free" or "Use at most x% of total disk space."

I regret to inform the demise of one of my hosts, know to me as setislave4...He gave his life for the challenge...I thought it was a blown PSU, but upon replacing said PSU, he wouldn't post....

He was last heard from on 28 April, at 20:35 UTC....may he rest in pieces....

So when will we be celebrating his wake? And I hope he had his "Organ Donor" card properly filled out so that, even in death, he can still give hope to those beside him.

When John declares the Challenge complete and he can post the final standings. :-)

During the cleanup phase, will new WU's be generated for 321 LLR? Or just let the already available WU's reach quorum? Recycling those if necessary until we do hit quorum? I wouldn't be averse to hanging around for the cleanup as long as all the WU's I'd crunch would be to help in the cleanup, rather than catching the "+1" leading edge up to the "-1" we've been pushing. :-)

Thanks all! I'd like to thank the academy... Wait, that happens more frequently than finding a 321 LLR prime. :-)

Especially nice to have hit it during the challenge. :-)
