Hello,

there will be 2 challenges (A), each 1 week long, already 10 teams signed up.

I: WU availability:

Travis, can you please check if there will be enough WUs available for the challenge time ?


II. BOINC users: please participate

- 1. tell your teamfounder to join the challenge on boincstats
- 2. the users just have to crunch the WUs in that time period. nothing more

Hi Erkan,

Any chance we could push this back a little bit? I'm traveling Feb 18th-28th and would like to start up some new runs with some server side tweaks before hand.

Would pushing things back a week be okay? If not I can keep the current runs going for the duration of the challenge and then make changes afterwards.

cheers,
--Travis

Hi Travis,

I have informed user Dingo (A) via PM (they started the challenges this time), and also wrote to the challenge pages.

Hi

If possible I would like to keep the dates the same from 1 Mar - 8 March. We have a Challenge or an Aussie Assault four times a year and have done for over a decade so the members know to look out for what Project we are going to run.

Thanks

Does not seem to be any available work coming through for the challenge

Server is showing only 27 available units but nothing happening

Either run out or stuck

Could admin look at this urgent please.........Thanks

UPDATE:- I actually just got a few come through on 1 computer, but still there may be some sort of problem

The assimilator crashed due to a weird issue with c++'s random number generation. I've fixed it and work will start flowing again. Sorry about the hiccup!

I see that the Challenge has put the "Current GigaFLOPS" over 100K (103355.84). Not sure if this has happened before ??

Travis, we could use some work for the upcoming challenge. I'm unable to get enough to fill the machines.

Thanks!
