I am from Florida and enjoy crunching different projects for EVGA.


Sorry for the downtime. Compiling mysql took longer than anticipated.
Not only that, But I also messed up the server so it took some time to recover.
And even more issues caused unavailability till I could get physical access.
Note: the even is now over.

Over three months, more than 700,000 unique CFs ODLS were found in the project, including 5 rare groups of ODLS pairs (three and four)


Grand congratulations!

Many thanks to all the project participants!

This project has badges now!
They are based on total credit, but I did not want to be usual, so I choose thematic thresholds.

Lv. 8) Over 6204 credits.
Lv. 9)     37224
Lv.10)    197600
Lv.11)    785997
Lv.12)   2629687
Lv.13)   6873318
Lv.15)  16350666
Lv.17)  84584914

The "numbers" are number of SNDLS on the corresponding level of rule 51. The badges are assigned to Users and Teams alike and next level badge replaces the previous level.
Also the credit gain has been increased about 30% up.

Padls Total subproject running fine
Better late than never. The PADLS Total experiment described in this thread is running fine on this server and is producing good results.

Technical: the search space has been split to so called segments. From each segment one workunit is generated. The workunits can be made any size, but are currently set to run approximately two hours on my computer. Once result of a workunit is returned to the server, it is picked up by the validator program. This program checks the result validity, saves the result into the database and generates a new workunit to continue processing the segment.

Results are exported twice a day in, and they are available for download as text or sql.

The search algorithm is not the most efficient, but gives reasonable results. A effort was initiated to install the subproject over at Ice00's server server.

Testing Padls Total
Experiment with name Padls Total now entered testing phase.
A new application was developed for this project which is currently available as a beta for Linux. This application finally supports checkpoints. Please, decide if you really want to participate in the beta work. The work generator is also being tested, so there are many tasks available and if you have beta work enabled, you may get way too much.

If you enable beta applications, be prepared to have:
* tasks suddenly aborted by server
* your completed tasks not validated for weeks
* no credit assigned for weeks
* tasks crash or get stuck running
* no apps for our favorite platform
* strict deadlines
* wrong run-time estimate

This is batch 15, 21 and 22 on the server_status page.

Another remark: it is not necessary to run the beta work continuously. Run it for a while and then disable it. Leave some to me to test. Credit allocation, windows application, automated result publication and deadline adjustments will all be done before the application leaves beta mode.

The server might not be available all the time as I am trying different storage solution.

Programming talk and development updates are in this thread.
