Default Colab sessions not getting work

My COLAB sessions are not getting new work.

The last number I factored was 102995749, and then the session exited. I tried creating a new notebook but it still did not fetch work. I had just changed to "Depth first".

I changed back to GPU72 Decides and it successfully fetched work again.

Stick a fork in me; I'm done!

Sorry... SPE... I was trying to retarget to 102M, but forgot to change the low value. DWIM!!!

This should be working again; thanks for attempting Depth. Heading to bed now; will confirm sanity in the morning (of my code, not me. I'm definitely certifiable...).

All is well...thanks for quick fix.

I like the way the results submission process for Colab works using the GPU72_TF computer name. This separates out the work on my PrimeNet CPU report so I can see how much is coming from Colab.

For those who's Primenet Username (not Display Name) I already knew, I've activated this.
I notice that the returned results are queued in GPU72 for a minute or so, which is fine, but the text shown below says:
Quote:
Copy and paste the above results lines (only those in the green cell) into the Primenet Manual Results page.
Or, better yet, please email us with your Primenet USERNAME (but NOT your PASSWORD), and the results will be submitted automatically.
Perhaps it would be better to show that only for users for whom automatic submission is not enabled, and for those for whom it is to display something like "the above result(s) will be sent to Primenet automatically within a minute or so".

Thanks... I often forget about the humans...

So, it appears that Colab is definitely viable again! A massive thanks to Google for all the compute. I have to assume they understand, and are tolerant of, what we're up to.

Because of this, I have invested the time in getting the GPU_TF Notebook to also run CPU jobs in parallel. This is close to being ready for production -- will be running initially with some beta testers (beyond just me).

Although, to be honest, there's not a whole lotta power there. Only a single (hyperthreaded) core of a Xeon @ 2.30GHz. 12G of RAM, though, so good for (slowish) P-1'ing. And a pity to just let it sit there idle.

In preparation for taking this "live", I have enabled the GUI function for CPU Worktype selection at the Instance List and Edit pages. Note that by default every instance is set to "Let GPU72 Decide" -- I haven't actually figured out what makes sense yet. Perhaps some ECM'ing?

But, importantly, anyone who doesn't want a CPU job to be run in parallel, please choose the "Disabled" option. Then the CPU is left for whatever you might want to do with it.

Pointing out of SPE's appreciated. As are thoughts and suggestions.

Thanks for doing this, I was hoping you would.
