Note for future jobs: mfb 96 with LP 32 is rarely best. usually 96 is used for 33, with 93-94 used for 32. Usually, a bit...

Greg, the NFS@home host, has requested our 16e jobs maintain lim's that average 225M or smaller. Is it ok to edit your job to change lim's from 268M to 225M?

During BOINC-challenge time, e-small was the right choice there for the job; with the benefit of hindsight we might just choose 134/200 or 134/180 for such a job, giving up a bit of speed to keep...

The poly is bad- I cut and pasted from my linux terminal, not noticing that it cut off the n: line with a $ at the end of the visible line.

I don't think the Q range nor LP size should be the deal-killer for e-small; but since memory use is advertised to BOINCers and overshooting the claims of memory use on 14e was a topic of complaint...

If you got a error every so often, and now run 4-6x longer than that period without an error, you have your answer that XMP is correlated to the problem. If you were getting one error a day, I'd let...

My best from CADO is 9.61e-15 according to cownoise.
