11) Message boards : Extended Sierpinski Problem : The Extended Sierpinski Problem Double Check (Message 77446)
Posted 2521 days ago by Profile paleseptember
Purely for my own interest, I took the six data points that Michael gave with Wrong (or Mismatched) residues compared to Total Tested, and then calculated the mismatch rate:

+Wrong--Tested--Percent+ | 062 | 021720 | 0.29% | | 408 | 070485 | 0.58% | | 756 | 148381 | 0.51% | | 789 | 154991 | 0.51% | | 813 | 161764 | 0.50% | | 836 | 167041 | 0.50% |

Two immediate things: firstly, my ASCII table-fu is terrible. And secondly, after the initial noise, the error rate is about one in two hundred.

Is that about expected? Worryingly high?

Hurrah! 54th overall, and a little push towards making my Silver PSA badge turn gold.

That was fun :)

Am fighting hard to take 10th place from Crun-chi. We are equal on WUs crunched, but they have the lead in points.

This is fun!
14) Message boards : Project Staging Area : Configuring PRPclient to maintain a buffer (Message 70002)
Posted 2770 days ago by Profile paleseptember
Hi all.

Due to some flaky internet, I'd like to maintain a few workunits in a buffer for PRPclient. For preference, whenever a client completes a workunit, I'd like it to return it, and refill the buffer.

Is there a combination of startoption, stopoption, stopasapoption that will achieve this?

Thanks in advance.

I snuck in at 198th place, which I'm pretty pleased about! Am going to hang on for a few more days to turn the Bronze into a Silver.

Echoing all of the posts above: very big thanks to Mike, Jim and Rackspace for the quality management and hosting! I'm planning to drop a note to Rackspace to say thanks for their generousity.

What I find very interesting about that chart is how huge the "Everyone else" slice is. It's not just the people with access to a gazillion servers that are doing this. It's lots and lots of "little people" like myself with just one or two computers.

As definitely one of the "other contributors", I'm having an absolute blast with my first challenge. I was hoping for a top 200 place finish (and getting a bite of the leaderboard credit), but it looks like I'm going to have to work damned hard to manage a top-300. My i5 laptop and Q6700 work machine are doing their best, though ;)
