It's early morning the day after a Federal holiday, so I'm sure it'll be back soon, but at 1212GMT 5-July-2017 the site is not responding.

Nothing logged on the server. Must have been a brief campus internet outage.

There is a 3 day Forumula Boinc challenge starting in about an hour. It is looking like there won't be enough work available. The ready to send has dropped from 200k WU to 80k in the past 24 hours.

Can you guys please load up more WU before the weekend?

Thanks

From forum. Please queue up more wus.

Tom and Greg have been warned by email but it's bed time here. Need someone to chase this for me.

I have several 14e and 15e candidates I can post in the fast breeding thread in the morning (EDT), but nothing tonight.

I have pushed two 172-digit GNFS jobs (cofactors of Aurifeullian factors of large Lucas numbers) that I had been planning to do myself to the 14e queue; I guess it's lucky that I had them. It's not the optimal place for them but I suppose it's churlish to reject free inefficient computrons.

Their lack of planning really should not be our urgent problem. If the queue drains, it drains.

If they want numbers to factor, point them at XYYXF and get some of them to do the ECM phase.

Tom, that's one of the Formula Boinc rules with regards to sprint challenges, as follows:

Quote:
20 events of 3-days throughout the year, according to the schedule of the Formula 1 championship. Each sprint will involve only one project. The chosen project will only be known 24 hours before the start of the sprint. The top 10 teams on each sprint are given a fixed number of FB points.
.
I was just concern getting this peak on NFS satisfied. Chill out...lol Next time we meet I'll pay you three pints, ok?

Challenge will last for 5 days but still to confirm the dates. As soon as I have it I'll publish it although it's pointed to start between 26-28 August.
