4 BEEEEELLLLION on Collatz

Post by UBT - Timbo » Mon Mar 08, 2021 9:37 pm

Hi all

It's taken me a while, but I've now breached the 4 beeeelllion mark :o

https://boinc.thesonntags.com/collatz/s ... erid=34195

I'm not quite sure when I will hit the 5 beeeellion mark, but hopefully, the next beeeellion won't take as long as the last one (or the first one for that matter ;-) ).

regards
Tim

HI Mark

Thanks !!

I'd switched GPU's to doing some Moo tasks for a change...and then saw that Megacruncher was still crunching Collatz so thought I'd better switch back to Collatz again. !!

And to which lockdown are you referring?...I reckon there'll be at least one maybe 2 more lockdowns before the Covid pandemic is "over" as far as the masses are concerned...and there's people out there just gagging to go straight back to "normal" no matter what BoJo says...

I had to make a trip to one of my customers yesterday as they are retiring and I needed to collect their unsold stock, for credit, and there were far more cars on the road than I have seen for some time...so a lot of people are disregarding the current lockdown rules...

And all this talk of 21st June is when all social distancing "laws" are repealed??? hahahahahaha - that's another one of BoJo's "mis-directions" I think to make people think the Govt is in control...when they have no clue at all at what they are doing or promising... :cry:

And I'm not the only one thinking this:

HI all,

I just checked my own "Statistics" tab in BOINC Manager and can confirm that:

on 9 Sep 2020, I had 1,481,877,468.65 Collatz credits

on 9 Mar 2021, I had 4,033,698,847.55 Collatz credits

So, in 6 calendar months, 2,551,821,379 were earned on my account. So there has been a rather rapid increase in my Collatz credits in the last 6 months compared to the previous period of time from when I frst started on Collatz, back on 16 October 2011 to September last year. :o

At the present rate therefore, I should get to 5 beeeellion in about 2½ months time !!

regards
Tim
