1) Message boards : Number crunching : Credit on new Tasks (Message 998)

Oops. That's not good. I know it doesn't matter much to some people who just want to contribute to the science.

Just my opinion, it is desirable to award the same credit rate for the same amount of work done for both ranks, whether based on GFLOPs, kWhr or any other reasonable measurable units.

Otherwise, with barely less than 2.6% of work left on rank 9, might as well run full blast on rank 9 and get lots of credit now while you can now and skip rank 10 as it only gets you 1/10 of the original credits. It makes it 10x harder to reach your next target/goal based on the point ranking system. I suspect you may lose some contributors who just go after points which may impact your overall project completion rate. My one cent.

Almost 79% completion. That's a 9% gain in 12 days. Ok the sprint accelerated the completion rate.

Like to hear if there is a definitive plan to continue the rank 10 search.

We have passed the 60% completion mark for this project (rank 9)

Hypothetically speaking, far far into the future, do you plan to continue this to higher rank (beyond 10)?. I would imagine that base on the result collected, are your team planning to establish a theorem for this, confirm certain mathematical properties, proof a certain hypothesis, conjecture or purely for data collection?

I understand this will take lots and lots of CPU (like looking for prime numbers). Incidentally can certain computation be done via GPU in conjunction with CPU? That may speed up the searches.

Thanks Daniel! Great job.

We are still running rank 9 at this moment, correct (the 50% completion mark)? All my ODSL pairs found are rank 9.

So there is a possibility to run rank 10 search in the future?
