Another PrimeGrid sub project ending (PPS-DIV)

https://www.primegrid.com/forum_thread. ... 574#148537

The PPS badge still has other projects so no need to worry about missing out on that.

Re: Waste Not, Want Not

Greetings. I think the lack of a raspberry Pi team is probably due to their relatively low output, they're not that popular for crunching. It's usually cases like yours, you already have a Pi and decide to use it for Boinc as a second thought. In my case, I've ran a few Pis a while ago, mainly on Ei...

Re: CPDN

The problem is that at the moment CPDN only has work for Linux machines and I believe all your hosts are Windows?

A small cache is fine but you'll only get enough work for one task per core.

Also be aware that if you do get tasks, they take a VERY long time (months!) and require a lot of disc space.

Re: 20 billion credits

Thanks all.

Tim, I don't count BU any more, 20 billion was a fortnights work :)

I don't know if I'll catch Carl (I was thinking mid April), once the weather warms up I'll be retiring my Xeons (and most of my 1080s) so unless 3080s are available by then, my output will drop significantly.

1.5 billion credits on PrimeGrid

Today Richard broke the one and a half billion credit mark purely on PrimeGrid.

Even more impressive when you consider that nearly half of his credits were earned on the lower paying projects!

Re: New Project: SiDock

Hi Tim,

There was a comment on the front page mentioning it wasn't necessary if joining via Boinc Manager, only if joining on the website.

The whole instruction has disappeared now :o

Re: Does a "progress rate" value indicate that a trickle has been done?

No worries.

Looks like the tasks are set to give a progress rate per hour and no progress rate may be because the first task has been running for less than an hour since the last checkpoint?

I don't know really, it's not normally something I look at.
