Lately as I'm sure with most everybody else I'm getting maybe 10 or 15 minutes with Colab before having to reset. I'm running 1 key on 2 different accounts. Most of the time I only get P-1 at around 500 sec, Today this is what I was getting. :unsure: What the heck did I miss? LOL

Yeah... The Colab Gods are acting mysteriously lately. Several of my instances are getting 6+ hours at a time; often a good twelve or so of runtime a day!

Don't know how long it will last for, but it's nice getting the compute again. :smile:

I'm probably jinxing it but this run has run for a couple hours at this point. I'll take what I can get but I haven't getting any TF's in quite a while.

Same here. 3 data points are a line.

My instances stopped showing as running in the browser the last ~1 week, but they are actually still running, very weird.

Just try to reattach, but don't click the stop/start button.

Yeah, that worked. But I never had to do that until about 1 week ago. It used to continue showing the spinning start/stop button until the session ended.
Maybe I can close the browser now when it does that disconnect but still running.

[QUOTE=ATH;581181]Maybe I can close the browser now when it does that disconnect but still running.[/QUOTE]Sometimes that works. I have transferred sessions between home and work like that. Other times it has died. Other times the original session spins away and I get a second session running concurrently.

Run only one instance at one account at the same time, preferably PRP or LL DC. I use 3 google accounts in a row. I get a 3 -5 hour runtime granted, and that after a year. You may have to wait 3-5 hours before you can count on the next account. Believe me this strategy is not the worst!

Run one instance PER Colab free account/email address, simultaneously. I reliably get all 6 accounts going, multiple times daily. The session following a GPU-too session ~4 hours runtime is usually a CPU-only session ~7 hours runtime. If I run each account 2-3 times daily, I get those durations. More frequently, and I may see some 1.5 hour durations. There are users running more accounts, much more.

The new twist is the "Failed to execute cell" etc error message, described near the end of [URL]https://www.mersenneforum.org/showpost.php?p=527909&postcount=2[/URL]. Retry usually clears it up quickly.
