Thank you.
All posted now, and I've got my first Mega. :-)

Of all the projects I'v taken part in on Boinc et al, PG is OUTSTANDING in its ability to allow interaction with the database, and involvement in searching the data relationships etc.

I take my hat off to volunteers, and designers who have created and maintained it. Thanks.

This morning I received an email re GFN Mega find, but it does not appear in the TdP or my primes list.

1061352756 974355 5 Feb 2020 | 19:35:55 UTC 5 Feb 2020 | 19:39:00 UTC Completed and validated (1st) 168.31 92.33 469.88 Genefer 17 Mega v3.21 (OCLcudaGFN17MEGA

Is this my impatience showing, or am I misinterpreting something.

Advice appreciated, and thank you for the TdP - really good crunching.

OK, thanks, I can see the myriad problems. Just looking to get a schematic to be enable reward for contributors’ smaller but valid efforts. Pour encourager les autres etc....

Hi, As big hitters always tend to achieve higher scores, much by the sheer power brought to bear, it could be good to have a graded competition. Thus smaller, or individual crunchers would compete in their group size. I.E. 1-5 pcs, 6-10, 11+ You get the idea? This is what we do with our pedigree Aberdeen Angus cattle herd competions.

Never having run any GFN on CPU, I imagine the L2/L3 caches will be still be vital in minimizing run times?
16) Message boards : AP26 - AP27 Search : AP27 Closing??? (Message 133402)
Posted 791 days ago by HomefarmProject donor
Firstly I am a fan of the AP search, since I joined in April 19 I have concentrated on it. However I do sometimes feel a bit guilty about burning so much electricity, with it's associated negative effects. If there is a real mathematical benefit for AP28 then let's keep it going. If not an indulgence in gaining peoples's interest and badge collecting may not justify the CO2 produced??
17) Message boards : Number crunching : Oktoberfest Challenge (Message 133276)

Thank you for organizing the Oktober Fest, great crunching!

I have residuals downloaded during the competition in work caches on 2 PCs.

I can finish these work units, but do they count as valid in the results please? If not the CPU units could be aborted as they are slower, to be re-issued to another user to help a cleaner finish?

I think I have a 24 waiting to validated, here's hoping!
18) Message boards : Number crunching : How much faster should a 2080 Ti be over a1080 Ti? (Message 130886)

HI I just completed my first DYFL, and got the following result.

1009262222 967332 4 Jul 2019 | 16:52:30 UTC 5 Jul 2019 | 15:30:14 UTC Completed, waiting for validation 81,203.65 1,219.89 pending Do You Feel Lucky? v3.21 (OCLcudaGFNEXTREME)

I ran it without any other BOINC cores, as suggested on a post here somewhere, so the GPU had pretty much all of the available cache space, except when casually using the PC for emails etc.

It's MSI Ventus 2080ti running at 1815 Mhz. The CPU I7-9900K runs about 4.75, with 3200 ram sticks.
19) Message boards : AP26 - AP27 Search : AP 27 Search (Message 129651)
Posted 924 days ago by HomefarmProject donor
Hi, I joined PG about 1 month ago, (April 2019), and have found about 150 AP. As the list grows it's more difficult to identify the individual records. As a member of CSF, I report each find with a screenshot record. Any chance of a mre friendly search sequence in the list. Thanks.
20) Message boards : Problems and Help : Macintosh AMD Radeon no OpenGL problem (Message 129313)
Posted 934 days ago by HomefarmProject donor
HI, Firstly may I state that I am not any kind of expert on Mac Osx. I am running 10 year old cheesegrater Mac Pros under Mojave, The only fails I get are with Gen19 and 20. The AMD drivers are bundled in the Mac OSX I believe, I have found many AP27, they work well. My GPUs are Vega 56, Vega 64, and RX570 under Mojave.
