kar_bon is about to pass Flatlander for 3rd spot in the over-all but MyDogBuster might get there before him.

Aggie The Pew have moved past XtremeSystems to grab 7th and BOINC Confederation will probably be right behind them in 8th by the end of the rally.

It's all happening.

And ... and .. we are finding Primes.

Can it get much better than this?

It's raining, so I released a new version of the rally pages with more detail.

Very cool, thanks! Having the score totals on both this and the earlier rally pages is nice because it allows an easy comparison between, say, someone's raw computational output in one rally versus another across different-size tests. (Previously we could compare the approximate total score output of two rallies by looking at the big spikes on the "All Time" graph on the Dashboarrd page, but not individual user or team totals.) It definitely tells a much larger story--I for instance claimed the same spot in the ranking (8th place) as in the previous rally, but cranked out 1.63 times more points than before.

Meanwhile, the rally is now complete--thanks to all who participated! We covered an amazing amount of ground--nearly n=50K worth (which is basically equivalent to n=100K on the 13th Drive, since this one covers twice the k-range). According to the Dashboard page on the stats website this was our second-biggest rally (in terms of computational power) of all time, nearly matching the output of our January 2011 rally (so far still the record-holder).

We're thinking of having another rally in late March, to make up for the dearth of them throughout 2011. We haven't finalized details yet, but stay tuned!

Welcome to all the new participants.

Well done to team Aggie The Pew. Someone did a very good job rallying support over there and the effort shows in the results.

The results also show that Vaughan didn't get much sleep last night while he landed the pass on Gary and it was just enough to pull team AMD Users past ROLP. An extensive effort. He'll be having a nap by now I hope :P

Congratulations everyone.

Yup zzzZZZ!!

I turned off all the dual cores and my quad Q6600s leaving the AMD hex cores and high end Intels running last night. With the a/c off the room only got to 32°C so it was OK I guess.

Looking forward to the next race.

Er, right...thanks for the reminder. At this point it's probably a bit late to do one in what's left of March (yes, my fault). PrimeGrid's next rally is April 1-3, and their next after that is May 5-10; so perhaps we could get one in in early-mid April. Would this work out well for people?

There's 2 options then

1 - April 8 - 15 : has some public holidays at the start of it, which may be good timing for some if they are staying home.

2 - April 15 - 22 : also looks good if some have plans to be away the previous week.

preferences anyone?

Either is OK with me, just make the rally last a week again. Long enough to get some crunching done but short enough not to be boring.

Sorry. Admins have been very busy with real life of late.

OK let's do a rally April 18th thru 25th. We'll probably do it on port 2000 again to get k=600-1001 caught up to k=400-600. I'll set up an official thread in the next few days.
