The Third Megabit Drive
We are starting the Third Megabit Drive.
The k's on this current drive, as of 30 May 2014, are at level n=1.4M therefore the goal of this drive is to take them up to 2M. Goal can be prior extended. The k's of this drive are: 203, 205, 219, 227, 235, 257, 259 Update (June 03, 2014): adding k=275 and k=295 to the drive from n=1680k. Range n=14001680k for both k added as "batch 2". Update (June 08, 2014): batch 2 completed. Update (July 09, 2014): The drive is completed to n=2M. Update (June 16, 2015): Reopening the drive from n=2M. Please help yourself and happy hunting! Status Batch 1 (7 k's to n=1680k and all 9 k's from n=1680k) Code:

Hi Carlos
Thanks for starting the drive. I'm busy right now but will join the drive soon. Happy hunting!

Taking 14001404.
Edit: Fast machines can test a candidate at n=1.4M in 500 seconds or less. Come on guys! Last fiddled with by pinhodecarlos on 20140531 at 02:09

Sorry for not splitting the input files into chunks but I don't know how to do it automatically. Also as the numbers are very fast to process, on latest Intel processors they can take less than 500 secs, I don't know what is the optimal chunk size for now for this drive, if 2k or 4k or 6k, for a period of 710 days of crunching as usual done on the other drives.

About automatically splitting the files
I may be able to help you out by automatically splitting the files if you want. Do you need them in splits of 1000 or 2000?

I splitted the 1.42M input file into 2k blocks (see attachment). Each block contains about 400 test candidates.
The attached ZIP file also contains a file called "url_list.txt" indicating the FFT lengths and percentages (for nonAVX machines). This file is only relevant for Kosmaj when uploading the files to his server... Edit: Attachment removed. Please use the file in the top post of this thread...
