I run primarily AMD, so I"m in the Math projects mostly, the science projects are generally more suited to Nvidea. And as far as math projects go the WU's are reissued almost immediately and there is no science effected. And projects like Collatz doesn't use wingmen. The sieve software is self validating. It either is or isn't No point in the redundancy.

Moo is in a very similar situation.

Prime on the other hand, uses double redundancy two wingmen for each WU for validation. They will accept two but prefer three. But they are certifying prime numbers and before they expend the resources on testing specific numbers for primality, they need to make sure the results are accurate, and that means redundancy.

So I have no problem with dumping WU's when not needed although I would do it through reset rather than abort. On a reset the server is told you no longer have the WU's and will reissue them right away.
Works this way for the science projects also so no fears of holding up or disrupting anything.

This is why Reset is the preferred way of switching projects

I am just trying to understand how everything works. And if is technically possible there definitely are ppl doing it. If it's done on a large scale it will probably be noticed. But you can't really decide if it by intent or accident. So maybe - at least for events - projects can try to match with teammate if possible. Just an idea.

Of the tens of thousands of people working DC that would take one serious organizing effort to make it an effective strategy, everyone would have to do ti at the same time. And yes it would be noticed.

It would be like reverse bunkering.

The massive number of independent DC participants make that difficult to do. And most teams take the approach of crunch what you want to crunch. Very few are organized to that level or have the power to enforce it.

And personally, I wouldn't be part of a team like that.

I didn't purposefully grab too many tasks but it happened and that's my fault. When pogs started I grabbed several days worth then when PG started a bit later I didn't have pogs set to no more units and I got a more work for both projects. I haven't done any CSG or Universe units on that PC trying to finish them all.

Aborting tasks will notify the server the next time the client talks with the project servers. The only time I've ever had to reset a project was when it wasn't working properly.

Same, and it's something I've done when I didn't notice I had a setting weird (because I was saving up for a bunker before the event started) or when I forgot to set no new tasks. Selected what I knew I wouldn't get done, aborted, then updated.

I'd rather the task go to someone else so the science is done than try and play childish games to attempt to make my team score better than someone else.

Yup, SCIENCE!!!! Is the key main thing with all of this. Rest is just bragging rights - at least for the main competition, we have prizes but still.

Well, City Run (Pogs) is over. And now, no CSG WUs are available. GG.

Even though this is quite a record for me. I'ven ever ever had this much CPU power, and it showed. I just wanted to have all the pending units validated though.

Agreed, I had 112 left over when the time zero'd out, but such is life.
