120hr deadline - so I'll be bunkering for that
I think this is fool-proof but could you just try it for me please? • There are 10 types of people in the world; those who understand binary, and those who don’t

Might as well. We have 6 FB points on it and it would be nice to consolidate & great to improve. But TaaT look like they have the 25 points for this one already. :roll:

I don't think the project is going to last to the end of the year. Maybe not even another 3 months. We need to get our SiDock points on FB now before it goes dormant.

Looks like the only decent way to bunker these will be for last 24hrs before it starts. I am running one WU per-instance so that i can coax decent amounts of work out of server. Minimum cache and max_concurrent = 1 on each instance. Then simply set ncpus 24hrs before the start. Don't try this unless you use krunchie :wink:

Tried a bit of team recruitment on the challenge. You never know, might get an extra member or two on board.
https://www.sidock.si/sidock/forum_thread.php?id=82

For anyone that hasn't run this before, ensure you have VS C++ 2015-2019 redist installed on windows or the tasks will fail.
You can download it from TSBT server here or search for it on the Microsoft site.

Looking like it takes about 20-40 minutes per unit. Any faster to do them?

maybe on your CPUs :rofl:

No, I don't know of any optimisation on the WU itself - just keeping all CPUs busy is quite a handful though

You are right, up to 48th, I do not know what is the max my machines are capable of, but I guess I will find out in a day or two. :-)
Pecos blew right through here, a blur. And our top 5 are awesome taking up the first 6 places.

Ready for a giggle?

I still have about 7500 completed WU to drop tomorrow & P3D are going to think it is cheating. How can anyone drop after 24hrs into a challenge with 24hr deadlines? Answer is that I bunkered up some 120hr WU from the previous sub-project :rofl:

P.S. I still think they'll beat us over the 7 days BTW so get all your CPUs crunching red-hot

Looks like their are 3 other systems out there sorta like mine.
(2) 7V12's and (1) 7702
Probably All on 3D's Team (I'd guess in their cluster).

If anyone has the winning Lottery Number's pass them here and I'd be willing to purchase 3 more systems. Heck I'd even spring on the power bill. :o :roll:

Current GigaFLOPS 14897.84 I'd guess that's a new record for this project. Plenty of tasks so far and the server holding up.

I have a nice bunker drop for immediately after the 14:00UTC update. Just as well really as they are eating slowly into our lead. More steam Men !!

At least there are no surprises either way after this - it is all a matter of how many cores we can all muster

Yup. No lack of work. I've got 340 cores on it.
Good crunching Pecos! I can cope with 7th so long as 2/3 of the folks in front are TSBT!
Our lead is still 280K. Not exactly secure but better than being 280K behind. Looking forward to that 2pm drop David.
