    What's the time scale for this challenge? End of this year or till death do us part :ROFLMAO:? This will be good for people to spread their wings to other non-popular DC projects and can indirectly help our team in FB standing. Edit: not to mention DC-vault.

    I'm currently with 22.projects.

    Just getting something started to help get some of the not so popular FB projects pushed some. If all our members pushed for 1M points on some of these projects it would help us out a lot.

    Top three in our team:

    Gilthanis - 58
    RFGuy_KCCO - 44
    Phoenicis - 37

    Go get them:D

    Maybe after a while, let do 10M project point challenge, lol.

    Well...to be fair... in the near future there will be less than 50 active projects (meaning not shut down completely) and a hand full that rarely have work or have "light" work.

    there are 9 projects still on BOINCStats list of active projects that I do not have 1 million yet.
    Acoustics
    CAS
    ODLK1
    RNA World
    FiND@home
    RALPH@home
    SZTAKI Desktop Grid
    QCN
    Climate@home

    Out of those 9, Climate is dead, FiND is dead, QCN is in transition and still owe me a ton of points they "lost" of mine, RNA World rarely has work, CAS rarely has work, RALPH has a ton of issues off an on and thus wastes a lot of your CPU cycles and don't really monitor their own forums for bug reports. That pretty much leaves me with Acoustics & ODLK1 as likely candidates and the rest just when they work themselves out or never....

    I very nearly have 9 projects over a million right now:
    PrimeGrid 257,812,603
    Collatz 60,174,834
    Amicable Numbers 3,705,217
    Enigma 2,614,756
    GPUGRID 1,509,775
    Moo! 1,144,838
    Asteroids 1,012,800
    Milkyway 1,000,384
    Einstein 966,735 Crunched past a million, but waiting for validation.

    Then I have the below plan to get a further 5 projects up to a million over the next few months:

    Hopefully we'll see some new and interesting BOINC projects get started.

    I'm only showing 4 and I've had to ratchet back my main PC due to heat issues now that spring/summer has arrived. Still able to fold on the GPU's but CPU hits 96-100C while crunching and machine reboots. Then I lose everything until I notice which might not be for a day or 2. Planning on moving soon tho so maybe my new office space will be better ventilated. Need to add another boxen for more projects. Thinking Ryzen for next build ...

    Skillz, can you please add this top 500 1M-point-project link in your top post? Thx.

    Free-DC has links on how our team performs in relation to other team based on other milestones. I think the one worth noting are the 1M and 10M-point project ranking by team.

    For 1M, we tie at 16th and for 10M we tie at 27th spot.

    Here are my short term goals:

    1M for Seti and Acoustics. Current points:

    I figure my goofy grid will hit 1 million soon and we will see how the points for Citizens science grid go. If that's slow and or we don't need the push on it i will circle back to NF as i have 800k+ on that already

    If you havne't already, the GoofyxGrid CPI project is a very high scoring project as well. Would be easy to hit the 1 million point goal compared to other projects.

    I’m currently working on some 2.5 and 5 million point goals. I’ve already hit 1 million in all the projects with regular work. The ones I have left to hit 1 million all have sporadic work, at best.

    RakeSearch using the optimized app will also get you 1 million points quickly, provided you have a CPU capable of using AVX.

    Even on my computer that doesn't have AVX the times were about 1/10th of the time of the normal apps. I'm up to 82,000.

    As mentioned above, I'm at 37. LHC will be the first target followed by absolutely everything else.

    I'm attacking Albert@Home right now on my GPU. Will be another week until I hit a million. (If the tasks keep coming, since this is a test development project they aren't constant).

    I'm up to 9 projects right now. Skillz Einstein is my newest 1 million project.

    2 Collatz Conjecture 60,174,834
    3 Amicable Numbers 5,366,412

    My goofy is 4 million something now and i just hit 1 million on CSG credit_1000000_AmethRuby.png so that puts me to 7 total.

    I've hit the 1 mil at 3 more projects. LHC@Home, ODLK1 and SETI@Home Beta.

    Total is now at 40 projects.

    I should hit 1 million at Acoustics within a day or so but I have enough pending validation now to hit the 1 million point goal.

    Latest 3 hit are WEP M2, GoofyxGrid CPU and Albert@Home.

    Total is now 43.

    10th project done.

    Made it to 1,000,000 even on Albert@Home. My 1080TI made it not too awful difficult. Took 25 days, but 7 of those the project didn't have work.

    I think Seti is the last GPU project that I need to get up to 1 million.:alien: I could go for the BETA project also, I guess.

    Have you installed the BOINC client and attached to a project yet? If not, we can walk you through the process of getting all set up.

    I have 30 total, but 3 of those are completed projects and WCG on other CPID's that I couldn't get to pull over to my main one.

    I’m stuck at 44 it seems. Sure wish some of my sub-one million point projects would get some regular work. I managed to get ~50 tasks a few days ago from MindModeling@Home, but that amount of work just isn’t going to cut it.

    There's still a couple of development projects you could go for, LHCDev@home and Ralph@home. The latter doesn't currently have work but it appears every few days.

    Any chance you can help out on the current FB Sprint, Rosetta? We're hanging on by a thread to 1st place.
