Credits for the old application (search up to 2^64) doubled

It's sad to see everyone leave the old (and unfinished) application "Amicable Numbers up to 2^64" so I decided to double credit points for it. Everyone can switch their CPUs back to gain some more credits. Note that you can run "Amicable Numbers up to 2^64" on CPU and "Amicable Numbers up to 10^20" on GPU on the same PC at the same time! Here's what you need to set in project preferences: Use CPU, AMD/ATI GPU, NVIDIA GPU = yes Run application 2^64 = yes Run application 10^20 = no Accept work from other applications = yes With these settings your CPU will get tasks (and more credits in general) from "2^64" only, and your GPU will get tasks from "10^20" thanks to "Accept work from other applications = yes" selected.

Urgent: Enable Prime Reporting Before It's Too Late

We say it all the time, but now you can lose out if you don't have prime reporting enabled. SGS primes are currently only on the T5K list for a few days before falling off the list. If you do not have prime reporting enabled, there may be no time to contact you before it's too late to report your prime. Rather than let the prime go unreported, we will report SGS primes under the DCer's name if you don't have prime reporting enabled. If the DCer also doesn't have prime reporting enabled, we will report the prime anonymously. The alternative is that the prime doesn't get reported at all. For more details and discussion please see the [Link] 4888 thread in our Sophie Germain Prime Search topic. To enable prime reporting, please go to "[Link] Your account" on the menu on the left, then select "PrimeGrid Preferences". Scroll down a bit to where it says "Primary (default) preferences:" and select "Edit PrimeGrid Preferences". Scroll down to "Reporting primes to the Prime Pages" and click the two checkboxes for granting permission to report primes and to send you an email when a prime is found. You must enter your real name. T5K will not accept fake names or user names. Please enter your name as "given-name surname". (Note that even in cultures where the surname is normally put first, we need the given name first and the surname last.) If for any reason you don't ...

Server Maintenance

Hey All, For some reason I am not getting any return results from the Nbody app. The validator went down over the weekend and caused a huge backlog in the queue. I think this may be the issue as we have had something similar before. I am going to cancel the workunits in the queue and let it refill. If you see anything strange in the next 24 hrs with nbody workunits this is the reason. Sidd

The search up to 10^20

It will be started tomorrow (July 1st)! I've decided to speed up the launch of the next search due to performance issues with GPU version that everyone experiences now. What will happen on July 1st: 1) "Amicable Numbers up to 10^20" application will start receiving tasks. 2) All GPU versions for the old application "Amicable Numbers up to 2^64" will be deprecated. 3) Credit points for both applications will be re-balanced to make sure that RAC doesn't change. So all GPUs should automatically switch to the new application, and the old application will remain as CPU-only until it finishes.

[wildlife] credit reimbursement and credit rate reduction

Sorry for taking a bit long on this, but I've gone through and done a credit reimbursement for the MNIST app which was having the "monster" workunits. I took everyones credit for that app and multiplied it by 1.15 (i.e., a 15% bonus). On another credit related note, I've dropped the credit awarded from future generated workunits by 10%, as the general consensus is that the credit rate is really high. Let me know what you think about this and I can do some more adjustment if it was not enough (or too much).
