The way that the Divisions are set up is different this year.  Every other year we were in Division 1.    In previous years, the Divisions were separated by total team RAC, rather than per user RAC.  The Rules page is still the formula that was used last year. 2016 Rules

 

I wonder how they are going to announce, and run, the Sprint portion of the contest?  :headscrat

Their site did a poor job even publicizing this "contest"

► Recommended GPU Projects: [email protected] , [email protected] (FP64) (AMD moreso) ► Other notable GPU projects: [email protected] (Nvidia), GPUGrid (Nvidia) ► Project list

I am ready to race.  :bike: 

 

Wish they had an RSS feed, but I will check the site periodically to see what project they announce. :thumb:

So I started to go through the possible list and setup accounts for ones I've never ran before. PRIMABOINCA better be off the list as you can't even create an account there. No mention of what the invite code is. Just reading the thread titles the project seems to have had issues over the years running out of work. How does one run out of work looking for primes?

http://www.primaboinca.com/forum_thread.php?id=1201

The invite code for the Yafu project is 'yafu'

I've never ran any of the LHC projects or any that require VB to be installed. I've installed VB on my own. Is there anything else special that needs to be done for those projects?

My computer running milkyway shut itself down again (ever since I put the W8100 card in and installed the AMD drivers, the computer shuts off during the night) and I am not home until next week to start it back up frown.gif So I am down a card and 24 threads frown.gif
Otherwise I look forward to the sprint event

That's an interesting choice for a sprint, given how long yoyo work units are... And just how memory intensive they can get too.

Yes. There are some shorter apps in YoYo. I don't recall which one is long or short though.

Edit: Just going off my previous per per task, crunch is the quicker app. Then muon, ecn and evolution being the longest.
