1) Message boards : Number crunching : Transit of Mercury Across the Sun Challenge (Message 134438)

Their $50 credit (with the referral code) doesn't sound like a lot, but it's enough to run ten 3-core AVX512 servers for the entire 10 day challenge.

Michael, I'd be somewhat cautious this time for the number of droplets. In last challenge, after signing up, I spun up 9 droplets and within a day, my account was locked by DigitalOcean Admin, stating a high number of droplets creation activity along with high load, which they deemed as "unusual". Eventually, it was unlocked after 7 days, once I stated my usage. But, not before that eating up a significant portion of free $50 credit (9 droplets turned off and not destroyed for 7 days).

This time, I'm taking a conservative approach of maxing out to 5-6 droplets and see what happens. I just want to share the experience which I had and in no way want to influence others on their decisioning for the challenge. :)

Thanks Michael. I took a stab on this for current challenge and signed up using the referral code. I followed the instructions and those were very clear indeed. So far, I am pretty happy with the results. Hoping to continue the same in future challenges. :)

Thanks to all for this very informative and helpful post. This has made me to buy an overclockable 2070 card over 1070 Ti. It should be up and running towards end of this month. This will be my first upgrade in 5 years for a desktop GPU ;-)
