#1 PrimeGrid Conjunction of Venus & Jupiter Challenge starts in 8 hours!

Unread post by Newshound » Sun Jan 06, 2019 9:54 pm


In about 8 hours, at 5:43:00 UTC January 7th, we kick off our 2019 challenge series with a 15 day SoB (Seventeen or Bust) challenge.

As with last year, the goal of this challenge is to accelerate the SoB double check. With a good challenge this year, we may be able to complete the double check in 2019!

More information and discussion about the challenge can be found in this forum thread.

I won't be in this challenge for I have other priorities. I doubt we will achieve much if we are to participate since the first Team in FB is sici with 166Million in the lead and I doubt they are going to stop and wait for us to catch up.

I could put a couple of 1080s onto it if you wanted to enter? Just to show face really
