Michael,

I love this new system of notifications. I have gotten 7 messages in the last 4 days, unusually high discovery rate for me, and each one has made me smile.

I have a confession to make. I'm participating in the Tour de Primes with the help of concealed motors! Particularly in my fans and hard drives.

Please don't ban me! :P


I don't think you should be banned. But maybe any prime you find that has a digit with a wheel-like shape should be excluded. ;-)

I was used to work with the same figures (0.5 day + 0.5 day), and I usually have around 1 day of work in queue for each project or subproject. When a queue decreases to its lower limit, I'm receiving a bunch of new WUs. <snip>

This seems stated incorrectly. If you have your settings for 0.5 + 0.5 you should keep a supply of work between 0.5 and 1 days for each computing core/unit you have available, this limit is not for each project you are connected to but for the whole computer.

For example if I have a computer with 2 CPU cores + 1 GPU core I should have 1-2 (2 of 0.5-1) computing days worth of CPU work and 0.5-1 days of GPU computing work no matter how many projects I am connected to.

Out of curiosity, what is an outstanding task?

I ask because I have one WU http://www.primegrid.com/workunit.php?wuid=417483036 with two tasks that were completed during the challenge but returned inconclusive. I am now the sixth person to get the WU (hopefully returning the tie breaker). So would this count as 1, 2, or more tasks outstanding?

Also, I was thinking that it might be nice to know how many WUs still require wingmen rather than just tasks outstanding. That is challenge related tasks yet to be sent vs. challenge related tasks already sent but awaiting return.


The names task and WU sometimes get used interchangeably. I don't know if these are the official BOINC definitions but I consider a WU to be the collection of work that needs to be completed and a task is the chunk of that work sent out in a package to a computer. At PrimeGrid most WUs will need two tasks returned to be completed/validated.

For challenges a WU must be totally complete so they know if each task that was returned is valid and should keep its score. So outstanding tasks are the tasks needed to complete WUs that have at least one challenge task scored, these may be sent or unsent tasks.

In your example you have one of the outstanding tasks, because if you return that task the WU can hopefully be validated and the related challenge scores finalized.

If you want to know how many challenge WUs have a task waiting to be sent (i.e. a wingman is needed) you can find that on the front page. You will see a message like this, which indicates 4 PSP-LLR challenge related tasks are waiting to be sent.

*** 4 tasks, 1 affecting scoring positions, of Year of the Sheep Challenge (PSP-LLR) cleanup work is currently available! ***

I like the updates, nice work.
Yes the previous version was useless, but now I will use this as my primary.

I agree with Scott, if we do a multiple subproject challenge count all work from users on any of the subprojects involved.
I am one of those users with a mix of hosts so would aim for the best subproject on each of them.
