2023-01-17: DENIS@Home, New simulations // Nuevas simulaciones

Dear volunteers:
As we had indicated in previous messages, we had to stop fitting the model because there was an experiment that we could not fit well. After analyzing our results, we believe that one of the limiting factors could be in the number of simulations we do to fit the behavior of the model in the experiment. Therefore, before continuing with the model fit, we are going to do a new test to study this in detail. We just put in new simulations to help us analyze this experiment to see if we can improve the model and its fit.

Thank you for your patience during this break. After analyzing the results of this experiment we hope to be able to resume the simulations.

Best,
Jes

2023-01-01: NumberFields@home, 2022 Year End Summary

2022 was the year of ?(?-10) (subfield 7), as most of our time was spent on that search. Many new fields were found and we are now entering the final row of the search. In the next 3 to 6 months we should be at the point where we can say with almost certainty that it is complete.

The goals for 2023 are simple:
1. Get subfield 7 to the point where it is essentially complete.
2. Go back and officially complete subfield 3, so we can say with 100% certainty that it is done.
3. Do more on subfield 7 or move on to subfield 6 (the final search).

Thanks everyone for your contributions and have a wonderful New Year!

2023-01-01: Universe@Home, Server room maintenance break

I got email with information that on 3th of January we get short internet access break in server room.
The break is planned between 7:00am and 9:00am CET.

2022-12-31: SRBase, SRBase - 8 years review

The project has passed the eighth year.

Compared with last years the following process was made:

2014-2015 - 1 base solved, 314 bases unstarted
2015-2016 - 5 bases solved, 297 bases unstarted
2016-2017 - 5 bases solved, 282 bases unstarted
2017-2018 - 1 base solved, 264 bases unstarted
2018-2019 - 6 bases solved, 218 bases unstarted
2019-2020 - 4 bases solved, 120 bases unstarted
2020-2021 - 3 bases solved, 101 bases unstarted
2021-2022 - 0 bases solved, 97 bases unstarted
in total - 25 bases solved, 97 bases unstarted

That was the worst year ever. Broken hardware parts, war and also a high inflation after corona which affects the costs.

The llr application has been replaced by the llr2, less work and no unnecessary doublechecks but with less performance. Intel ARC is now supported,
cuda12 apps for 4xxx cards are in progress.

The project has almost completed the 73-74bit lvl at TF, 74-75bit is in progress, which is now taking considerably more time.
The new CRUS goals for 2023 are available and some have already been set up.

I wish you all a healthy new year 2023 and of course healthy hardware!

2022-12-24: T.Brada Experimental Grid, Time to say goodbye

Dear Crunchers of this project. Let me wish you merry christmas and happy winter solstice. It weights my hearth to write this message, but things had come to a point where it is better to end things, rather than endlessly drag them out to no end. Since the summer, I have been hopelessly stomped by a stream of activity, both happy and necessary. It turned out to be impossible to care about this project. Even thought it almost runs itself, even thought I'm thinking right now "gosh, it really should be possible to find a hour or two each month".
It is time to announce that this project will no longer provide any compute jobs. I will, of course, keep the site running, but since there is no work, no new users can get enough points to post, the forums will effectively be dead.

Best regards, Veronika.

2022-12-24: SRBase, Intel ARC apps deployed

for Windows and Linux, to enable it in your prefs, choose Intel

This is still in test to tweak the plan_class to get work. Iam hoping to avoid Intel HD Graphics if you have both onboard.

2022-12-22: SRBase, Intel ARC testers needed

To collect some datas for the devs we need some testers with Intel ARC GPUs.

What todo?

Run mfakto --perftest on windows, linux is a bit different somewhere standalone on your PC and post the output here.

2022-12-21: Asteroids@home, New Raspbian OS aarch64 (armv8) application is here

Hi everyone,

A new, 64bit, version of the Period search application for the Raspberry Pi was released today supporting aarch64 (armv8) architecture!

It will be interesting to get some feedback from you about how it performs as there still could be some issues to be solved.

Happy crunching and don't forget to use active cooling on your boards as the app can be very aggressive to the cores on times.

Cheers!
Georgi

2022-12-07: SRBase, unexpected server crash

A bluescreen crashed the server. The good thing, the database survived, In logfile found system_service_exception ntoskrnl.exe 0x0000003b and ran a chkdsk and sfc /scannow, something was repaired with chkdsk.

The bad thing, I dont know exactly whats causing this problem, driver or SSD.

More infos
ntoskrnl.exe+3f70d0
0x00000000c0000005, 0xfffff8033bc88f39, 0xffff988cd64d5850, 0x0000000000000000

607920 35218

llr2 gwnum 30.9
11920*51^35219+1 is not prime. RES64: 5326FBF23EE99827 Time : 12.728 sec.

llr3.8.21
607920*51^35218+1 is not prime. RES64: 5326FBF23EE99827. OLD64: 8C5E80CE11E6EA41 Time : 26.106 sec.

llr2 gwnum 30.4
11920*51^35219+1 is not prime. RES64: 5326FBF23EE99827 Time : 38.737 sec.

llr2 gwnum 29.8
607920*51^35218+1 is not prime. RES64: 5326FBF23EE99827 Time : 51.552 sec.

The app divides the number 607920 / 51 = 11920. The gwnum lib has a bug somewhere and the dev is informed.

At the moment only S51 is affected.

Base S51 will be stopped for the time being after 35-37k is done, the tests are correct with the divided numbers but primes cant be removed from the sievefile.

All affected tests must be convert to the correct values. This takes time.

2022-12-06: LODA, Project update: 110k programs milestone reached!

Your contributions have pushed us to our new milestone of 110k programs. This is an amazing achievement. Thanks for your continuous support to the LODA project!

We have also made major progress on the tooling side to make our results more accessible and to better support research activities. We have created a new interactive programs website where you can search for programs that your miners submitted. To better support research activities, we have built a new feature for automatic formula and PARI/GP code generation for many LODA programs. In addition, we have improved the tweets on @lodaminer to make them more digestible and include your names.

Our next immediate goals are to make the programs website more mature and powerful, e.g., by supporting new keywords. We also plan to extend the formula generation to cover more complex programs. In terms of new programs, we would like to reach 120k programs by the end of January 2023. This is an ambitious goal but we hope to keep up our current pace, powered by your amazing support!

2022-12-03: iThena.Measurements, Infrastructure problems (LTO)

Within the infrastructure problems are the needs for mass data storage.

We need an LTO drive or LTO library.
Alternatively, LTO tapes themselves may also be useful.

The preferred LTO generation is LTO4 or LTO5.

If anyone has any in their storeroom/basement/garage :) we are happy to accept this type of equipment for our own needs.

Perhaps it is just taking up unnecessary space at someone's place.

If anyone knows anything about this type of equipment, please send us an e-mail:
lswierczewski@cybercomplex.net

Thanks!

2022-12-03: iThena.Measurements, Thena.Computational and GridCoin

Further to an earlier announcement, we are planning to add the iThena.Computational project to GridCoin.

However, the possible final date for adding iThena.Computational to GridCoin is not yet known.

Soon the iThena GRAPH tasks will be finished. Currently, we are not generating new GRAPH tasks - however, we are planning to update the GRAPH application and add Windows support for the HEX application.

The above changes apply to the iThena.Computational subproject.
