PrimeGrid: TRP-Sieve Ending

Quote:It took longer than we anticipated, but we're moving forward now with our plans to complete the TRP-Sieve. Our rough estimate is that it will take about a month or two to reach optimal sieving depth.

I suspect most folks already did their "final badge hunting" when we first announced this back in August and September, but if you want to push for that next TRP-Sieve badge, now is the time to do it!


More details and discussion can be found in this forum thread.

Hmmmmmm, to keep mine at bronze, or to actually try and get it to at least silver... Tough call. Eh, why not ^_^

This is the kind of thread I need. VS posting individual threads.

Beta Testing badge from the Denis project. It looks like a BOINC symbol with a B T letters inside. Obviously a lot smaller for badges.



Dear volunteers,
The role of beta tester is crucial for the development of this project. They compute when errors can easily occur and risking not getting a reward in the form of credits. From today, we want to thank all these volunteers a little more for their work and we want to do it in a public way. We have added a new badge for Beta testers and a new classification with the credit obtained in beta applications (http://denis.usj.es/denisathome/top_beta_users.php). Now you can identify them easily.

Thank you very much for your commitment to the project.

Best,
Jesús.

I saw this post on Duchamp forums awhile back saying POGs is processing extra data now. POGs could be ending this year.

I'm not completely sure about POGS at this point, but Kevin has mentioned a few times that everything that he's wanted POGS to process has already been processed, and we're just processing bonus data now (which in itself isn't a bad thing, in astrophysics more data is always a benefit). It seems likely to me that it'll be wrapping up sometime later this year.

As for theSkyNet in general, I'll probably still be performing basic maintenance on POGS, Sourcefinder, and theSkyNet.org while they're still up. I don't know if there's a plan to keep theSkyNet.org running after all the projects are eventually shut down, though. They might decide to shut down the website once both POGS and Sourcefinder have ended.

I also don't want this to be seen as a "thanks for the work, now goodbye" situation. I'm certainly going to be making the contributor's list webpage (which might replace sourcefinder.theskynet.org in the future) that lists all people who've contributed to this project, and is referenced in any publications that come about because of the work done here. I'd also like to do the same for POGS when that eventually shuts down, too. You've all contributed a lot of time and energy to both this project and POGS, and I don't want that to go unacknowledged.

POGs admin:

I try to share any information about POGS, Sourcefinder and theSkyNet with everyone whenever it becomes available to me. Sometimes, I get told one thing one day, then another thing a few weeks later. Organisation is sometimes a bit all over the place.

Also, the website has been on life support for a while. I've had to set up an automated script to restart it every few hours because the webserver would keep crashing. I never had time to sit down and properly work out why (the website code is pretty large, and it's in Ruby which is a language I'm not very familiar with). When I get a chance, I'll see if something repairable has happened and I'll try and get the site back up and running.

I'm also not sure how long Kevin intends to keep running POGS. I'll see if I can get an estimate of how long he plans on continuing it before finally shutting the project down. I've only been told that he's processed everything he wanted to, and that POGS is now processing bonus data.

Sorry to hear POGs might be done soon. So many trophies.

I guess it's too late to sign up for the challenge, I went to the link but there is no sign up link.
Looks like late entries aren't allowed, so that's probably why.

Looks like some possible cheating went on with Collatz Conjecture?...

Project Down Until...
It seems a few people have come up with a way to game the system. Until I figure out what damage they have done and how many thousands of work units need to be re-issued, the daemons are shut down. You should still be able to return any completed work units and they will eventually be validated and credit given if valid, but no new work units will be sent until new applications and server daemons have been developed.

Why would anyone cheat at Collatz? I read this is in the related thread at the message board. I don't know how Grid Coin works, could someone benefit by posting more points?

What is up with Team Gridcoin Group Name grcpool.com-3

5 Seconds of work and they get Credit of 320,000.00
