I can't get my DENIS up. It says I can't reach it. Can any of you help?


You're probably looking in the wrong place.

You're right ! No solution.

It’s not so much that there’s no solution as there is no problem.

For GFN the run times are very predictable and, within each subproject, the credit granted is directly proportional to the time it takes to run the task. No matter which GFN19 task you get, you will receive exactly the same credit/hour. It’s designed specifically to work that way. I should know; I am the person who designed it.

Last few posts are getting off topic folks... Consider this a warning before I start removing things.


This.

Lots of posts have been removed for being off topic.

When you post anything here, there's a bunch of rules prominently displayed just to the left of where you type the message. Besides being off topic, many of the posts also ran afoul of these rules, or came really close:


  • No messages intended to annoy or antagonize other people.
  • No messages that are deliberately hostile or insulting.
  • No abusive comments involving race, religion, nationality, gender, class or sexuality.
  • No discussions about religion or politics.



Play nice... or play somewhere else, please.

Could it please be possible to delete/hide those?
And including this one?


I could, but it's not necessary. Your posts are all good. It's the stuff *I* wanted to post (but didn't) that was problematic. And if I thought of it, surely others did too, and as fun as it seems, we really should not go there.

Anyway, all is good, but let's not go any further talking about the intersection of quantum mechanics and electoral dysfunction. That path leads to madness.

It is the federal election tomorrow.
I voted early - yesterday.
I took inspiration from the 2 quark meson.
I voted anti-green.
(It nearly did my head in. 9 becomes 1, 1 becomes 9, etc)

I doubt anything can account for the anomalies I produce when casting a vote.

In the local council elections, I vote for Stephen Jolly, because I LOVE "Mr Jolly Lives Next Door."

Edit: You can get a 'how to vote' card from your preferred party. I got one and did the opposite.


Just a warning to all: Resist the urge to start telling "quantum election" jokes. As funny as they may seem to you, they'll quickly devolve into hateful political discussions resulting in this thread getting shut down and lots of bad feelings.
6) Message boards : Wieferich and Wall-Sun-Sun Prime Search : I have 14 mln points pendoing, mostly WW (Message 155348)

Yes my pending has slightly reduced.
But holy cr*p all my firsts are above 90%!
97.37% highest!

You never see this people - there is - as tng said - stuff going on.

As long as the servers are coping then all is well.


In the scope of things, it's not a lot of tasks. The servers aren't affected at all.

You have teams of people participating in a contest where it's advantageous to wait before returning tasks, so that's what they're doing. Things will go back to normal within a week when the contest ends. Anyone not participating in this contest can simply ignore the side effects, other than to enjoy the exceptional first percentages and the increased chance of discovering something.

One characteristic of the exponents is that they're not near an FFT boundary, where some tests would have different FFT sizes, and thus significantly different execution times. This was part of the criteria for selecting the next exponent.
8) Message boards : Number crunching : LLR2 installed on all big LLR projects (Message 155144)
Posted 70 days ago by Profile Michael GoetzProject donor
This is a kind of official announce that PPSE is running on LLR2 now. Well, it's running LLR2 since April 1st.

Technically, PPSE is still "unknown" state and can be reverted back if servers will be unable to handle the load. To avoid dangerous server overload, we have to apply some restrictions:

- There will be no more PPSE challenges;
- PPSE primes will be not eligible for future Tour de Primes.


I think getting PPSE to LLr2 is a very good thing, Thank You for doing that!! But I have a question for you...are those last two points permanent or just 'for now'. The reason I ask is that one of my teammates crunches PPSE almost exclusively and does love the Challenges, with a single pc though he's never in the list of stats.


To the second point, with T5k average digits getting bigger and bigger, GFN16's days are numbered leaving PPS as the sole "attainable" subproject for most crunchers in TdP. Are there discussions going on behind the scenes about what the future of TdP eligible primes will be? It would be sad that in the near future we'd all be fighting for an elusive megaprime or two for an entire month, instead of what we have now, where even modest searchers can get a few small primes and their participation badges.



Thus it has always been. Computers get faster, the primes get bigger, and those with older slower computers struggle to keep up. The difficulty of finding one of the smallest allowable primes in 28 days, whether that is 100K digits or 1M digits, stays roughly the same over time.

I messed up my start to this challenge. I miscalculated the cache requirements for my two larger computers and ended up aborting their tasks after 25 minutes. Oops!

My meager computers won’t make much of a difference, but I have joined team Ukraine for the balance of the challenge. My toes are getting cold and I shall take a vacation from Antarctica to go someplace warmer as Autumn comes to the south and Spring to the north.

(Any replies to this should be worded very, very carefully. The “no politics” rules still apply.)
