PrimeGrid's 2019 Challenge Series Oktoberfest Challenge

This section is where you can post topics related to Challenges from other websites, such as Formula-BOINC, SETI-Germany and BOINCstats, as well as project challenges such as from WCG, PrimeGrid et al.

As a Team, we really want to engage as many team members with these challenges, as this gives us a great way of attracting more members to our Team...plus we get to show our strengths as a Team by (hopefully) doing well in each one.

PS: I have moved lots of topics into this section where they are relevant...as you can see, we've always been happy to take part in Challenges...and long may that continue ;-)

From September 21st 11:00:00 UTC until September 26th 11:00:00 UTC we will be having a 5 day challenge running the AP27 Search to celebrate Oktoberfest.

More information coming soon!

Hi all

In theory, the next Sprint is from 19th-22nd September and PrimeGrid has already been picked this year (so we can't "double-up").

oops - correction: AP-27 supports both CPU and GPU tasks so, I'm tempted to do Sprint tasks until maybe 21st and then see if we are in the points and if not, I'll switch to PG for the Challenge.

regards
Tim
