After multiple closed tests, I am happy to announce new Subproject!
The search for Symmetric Prime Tuples is a continuation of deceased project Stop@home.
The application is now available as beta for Linux and will be available for windows tomorrow.
Please report any issues here.
Sorry for the downtime. Compiling mysql took longer than anticipated.
Not only that, But I also messed up the server so it took some time to recover.
And even more issues caused unavailability till I could get physical access.
Note: the even is now over.
Over three months, more than 700,000 unique CFs ODLS were found in the project, including 5 rare groups of ODLS pairs (three and four)
Many thanks to all the project participants!
This project has badges now!
They are based on total credit, but I did not want to be usual, so I choose thematic thresholds.
Lv. 8) Over 6204 credits.
Lv. 9) 37224
The "numbers" are number of SNDLS on the corresponding level of rule 51. The badges are assigned to Users and Teams alike and next level badge replaces the previous level.
Also the credit gain has been increased about 30% up.
Better late than never. The PADLS Total experiment described in this thread is running fine on this server and is producing good results.
More details in Subproject Description.
A effort was initiated to install the subproject over at Ice00's server server.
Experiment with name Padls Total now entered testing phase.
A new application was developed for this project which is currently available as a beta for Linux. This application finally supports checkpoints. Please, decide if you really want to participate in the beta work. The work generator is also being tested, so there are many tasks available and if you have beta work enabled, you may get way too much.
If you enable beta applications, be prepared to have:
* tasks suddenly aborted by server
* your completed tasks not validated for weeks
* no credit assigned for weeks
* tasks crash or get stuck running
* no apps for our favorite platform
* strict deadlines
* wrong run-time estimate
This is batch 15, 21 and 22 on the server_status page.
Another remark: it is not necessary to run the beta work continuously. Run it for a while and then disable it. Leave some to me to test. Credit allocation, windows application, automated result publication and deadline adjustments will all be done before the application leaves beta mode.
The server might not be available all the time as I am trying different storage solution.
Programming talk and development updates are in this thread.
I created new program and I want to test a idea that ODLS can be found directly in the output of the generators without first permuting them. This program checks dls about 40 times faster, but not as thoroughly. The same space is checked as batch 10, 12 and 13. Additionally the maximum number of diagonal transversals is recorded.
The workunit name is as follows:
padls4_a61923754 - application name
padls4_a61923754 - application compatibility version
padls4_a61923754 - generator version (a or b)
padls4_a61923754 - 8 numbers forming a input row for the padls generators
Credit will not be awarded during validation, but later during assimilation of the batch. Credit will be granted based on the number of Latin squares checked. If you do not agree with the experiment, the credit or the fact that your data is stored on my SD-Card, then please do not participate.
