    QuantumFIRE Alpha

    New Project based at Cambridge University in England

    http://cah.tcm.phy.cam.ac.uk/

    Registration is open for about 2000 users initially. Stats are available and I've added them already though the xml files are actually empty right now

    Project Administrator seems pretty responsive so far, fixing up a number of the usual issues very quickly.

    I have a few wu's running right now, initial estimates are around 24hours per wu..

    I turned up the heat on this one this morning. I like the long running WUs with small downloads. It makes a lot of difference on my network. The credit is fairly good too.

    Let's just nobody comes along with a garage full of boxes to break it.
    19 primes found. The largest: 1351*2^617684+1 (185945 digits)

    Poke away Lauren.

    Maybe they will declare war.

    Then we would have to crank it up to 100%.

    I can see why you are the only one working this project outlnder
    there is not even a thread about QuantumFIRE Alpha in the ARS forum
    outlnder are you trying to keep this all to your self
    to get a commanding lead over your team mates

  33. #33
    I'm just hangin' out untill Sztaki starts up again. And since it is back up, I'm off to new heights.

    You guys enjoy your first place.

    Yes, Lauren, I think we've ALL noticed that. You da man!

    By the way, does it really take three days to re-aim your fleet?

    Sad but true Yes if it is a new project I have to log onto each node (60+)
    and attach each node to the project
    And with my life I only have little chunks of time to do tasks here so it adds up

    Wow! Impressive, to say the least.

    Well, we're sure glad you're so dedicated. You sure do crunch a bunch!
