    When will OGR26 end?

    no .plans on when it will exactly end

    says 18-Feb-2009

    no signs of empty buffers on the keyservers
    http://n0cgi.distributed.net/ogr-proxyinfo.html

    we are currently at position 11 and the "2ch, Team"-team could be a threat...

    well, until it completes...

    27 is already to go as soon as 26 is complete
    28 is already to go as soon as 27 is complete.

    We're doing good!

    http://n0cgi.distributed.net/ogr-proxyinfo.html - some proxys are running out of work...
    Bok, do we have enough in our proxy?

    The estimates page has been saying Feb. 17/18th for over a week now so the work rate has been pretty steady. Who knows of anyone has been hoarding WUs for a big dump but make sure you are using the FreeDC proxy so you have less chance of running out of work.

    news...

    http://n0cgi.distributed.net/cgi/dne...gi?user=bovine
    :: 16-Feb-2009 07:39 GMT (Monday) ::

    Howdy all,

    We are now at 97% complete for OGR-26 and have fewer than 600 thousand
    stubs left to go. This will likely take us less than a week, unless
    you can round up some more folks to run dnetc on their computers!

    As we approach the final days of this project, there will be periods
    of time where no OGR-26 work is available from the network. These
    occasional periods of unavailability occur because we want to avoid
    re-issuing the remaining stubs too many times. This is not a cause for
    concern, but if you don't want your client to go idle, you should
    verify that RC5-72 is enabled in your configuration files. (It is by
    default.)

    Once we have fully completed OGR-26, we will be able to officially
    launch our next project, OGR-27. Since the new project relies on the
    proven results of the previous project, we don't want to launch OGR-27
    while its predecessor is still in progress.

    While we are all waiting for the new project to start, we invite you
    to begin preparing your computers to participate in the new project.
    To work on OGR-27, you will need to be using the v2.9103 client for
    your architecture. If you run a personal proxy, you should upgrade to
    build 347. You can find these new versions on our official download
    page at http://www.distributed.net/download/


    We thank you for your continuing support and enthusiasm as we look
    forward to this exciting new project.

    Moo! ]:8)

    I think we have enough in the proxy

    The problem, as I understand it, is, once the project gets their last work unit submitted, tested and accepted, they freeze the stats, and all the work units we have cached in the pproxy are for not.
    So too many is not as bad as too few.

    As soon as there are 20 cached it submits them..

    Wow talk about being close, I figured it would have been closed today but we are now sitting at:
    % Complete: 99.99%

    Only 874 stubs remaining. Make sure you flush whatever you have before midnight GMT tonight!

    seems to be that we are not running on an odd number of time-working-days?
    or we are running into a "123" days
    99.99% is very close and I expect to close it every now and then...
    anyone knows how long OGR-27 will be? will it be as short as OGR-26?

    With a naive implementation, it should take 27 times as long as OGR-26. With this new improved algorithm, I don't know though. Should take longer than OGR-26 nevertheless.
    Engage!

    no, sorry, after OGR-25 ended, my PS3 switched from Linux to "standard"-OS to view movies/etc... all the weired stuff the "normal" people do with PS3 (except playing games )

    all my output was from a Q9300 quad core plus some additional small machines...

    OGR-27 has started

    http://n0cgi.distributed.net/cgi/pla...09-02-24.17:26

    Howdy all,

    We've just confirmed receipt of the last OGR-26 stub, thus marking
    that project officially complete! We will try to publish who
    submitted the most optimal and last stubs, once we confirm that they
    don't mind their identities being revealed.

    You should already notice that fresh OGR-27 stubs are already
    available on our proxy network. To work on this project, you will
    need to be using the v2.9103 client for your architecture. If you run
    a personal proxy, you should upgrade to build 347. As usual, you can
    find them http://www.distributed.net/download/

    If your platform doesn't appear to have released clients available
    yet, that may be because some are still on the pre-release page--we
    hope to officially release them in the next couple of days. We
    appreciate your patience.

    Due to variations in complexity, we expect that OGR-27 will take us
    significantly longer than OGR-26 did. It is difficult to provide a
    precise estimate but one extremely rough guess is about 7 years,
    assuming no increase in computing power and that our size estimation
    sampling reflects the entire stubspace.

    There is one thing that is different with OGR-27 than with our
    previous OGR projects: we are confident that we will discover a better
    ruler for OGR-27 than the one we know to be optimal currently.
