I created an account for Google Cloud for now to test and play around with cloud services. I got some stuff running but it seems like it stops running when I close the ssh browser window. How do I keep running stuff without having the browser console open?

nvm, I found a way.

My DO account was blocked due to “atypical activity” with 10 droplets running and my response on the ticket has gone unanswered for 3 days. Have in mind that it is not possible to destroy the droplets on a blocked account, and they are still charging my account with 10 not reachable and not running droplets. I regard that as downright unprofessional. I am NOT looking forward to what kind of trouble this can develop into. However I can recommend to be very careful dealing with them upon scouting the net for other customers terrible experience with this provider.

However Google Cloud can almost match the price to performance when the VM is created in preemptive mode, though it requires more babysitting so to speak.

Hey Penguin,
I'm thinking about using cloud instances but I'm not sure about it as I haven't used cloud instances before. Would you still recommend DO? In the case of a "yes", would you guide me through the setup?

This is what I get when I run the script: ...

Check how the split command splits a given line. I would assume it works by splitting the string by spaces, so in order for the python program that Kellen wrote to work you probably need input files of the format:

prime base

instead of

prime | base^256+1

This would explain that it receives more values (in this case three, one substring is just "|") than it expects (two).

Moving to larger GFNs for the rest of the month.

Hi Frank!
I haven't found a prime yet. My strategy is all on GFN-16 right now, completing a total of about 1500 tasks per day with 60-70% firsts (thanks Google Colab).
Having no realistic chances being 1st for CPU tasks, that's all I can do. Hope I can find one itsy-bitsy prime in the next 10 days. If not, I'll let them crunch through March until they find one... A prime is a prime ;)

Make sure you have connected to a host with a GPU. For that go to "Runtime" > "Change Runtime Type" > "Hardware Accelerator" and choose GPU.

Also choose "Use GPU" in your PG preferences - I forgot this obvious one, too, when I did work there ;)

Be aware that GPU hosts tend to disconnect earlier than pure CPU hosts, as they are requested much more often by users, so I'd run only small GFN tasks there.

Incredible job, sire!
