Insert copious amounts of grumbling here because I need to get another 500k to get the badge.... sozo.gif

Edit: I only need another 440k but still. It's almost as annoying as doing the extra tasks in CSG aaaaaand it not showing any evidence that you spent two hours watching wildlife videos or another two hours sorting through a thousand photos... Tracked my climate tweets though, although I apparently didn't even get 50% valid loo

Haha, It shouldn't take long with the Ti though. A day or two. I think since the point badges were added it messed with the Free-DC badge banner as neither show up now.

The top badge is 1billion and no one is anywhere close to that and probably won't get there before the project ends. Maybe there will be another app later as I won't be running duplicate work as the admin mentioned.

True enough... It had already gone up 100k thus morning when I checked, so hopefully it will just take a day to do the rest. Trying to keep the living room at a reasonable temperature, which is why I'm slowly switching over to mostly cpu crunching...

... Which kind of works out because I'm still kind of semi-tempted to get a Natex bundle (or wait for Ryzen Naples), and then maybe slap a pair of 1050 Ti's in there with it so it would do more work but put somewhat less heat into the place. Only issue is that two 1050 Ti's isn't that much lower for heat output compared to a 980 Ti.

Natex bundle would be neat to get, especially if put into the upcoming CaseLabs BX8 as air cooling the rig wouldn't be an issue (and I'd get 4x the amount of work done)

Just for you, dude. 100k, 200k, 500k badges. Just saw this in my Notices.

Definitely nice to see they came up with lower badges. I snagged a 1mil badge, but definitely happy you don't have to move that high up.

Now if only we could talk the TN-Grid guys into a 10k and 25k badge tongue.gif

Though I would throw this on the 48 core and see what it does.

Both CPU and GPU, the Tahiti does a wu in about 4:45 the E5 does one in 6:10. thumb.gif

Smooth as silk......

Not too bad at all......

The next goal will be search for all amicable numbers up to 10^20. It's ~5.4 times bigger than 2^64, so the project will last for several more years.

Looks like it's going to be around a while...

WhiteWulfe 05-30-2017 09:14 AM

Huh, maybe I'll have a chance at getting the higher up badges after all... But the question then is do I want to run a math project tongue.gif

bfromcolo 05-30-2017 09:15 AM

Right I think the difference will be the rate at which the numbers are found.  There for a while you could find hundreds in a few days.
