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:

In my quest to help the FB standings, and to also get to a million in as many current projects as possible, I've started a tally of the calculation times needed:
Numberfields: 32 days
RakeSearch: 15 days (This project has "optimized apps" that most people are using, projects complete in 1/10th the time: https://github.com/sirzooro/RakeSearch/releases/tag/v1.0)
NFS: 20 days
Universe: 20 days
SETI: Less than 10 days under Linux on my 1080TI.

Solid 3 months of crunch to get those 5 projects to a million. That would put me up to 13 14 projects at a million plus. There are so many BOINC projects that have come and gone; I look at the list of projects that other people have a million on and it is just completed project after completed project.

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.

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.

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.

1 Primegrid 258,284,543
2 Collatz Conjecture 60,174,834
3 Amicable Numbers 5,366,412
4 Enigma@Home 2,616,961
5 GPUGrid 1,801,375
6 Moo! Wrapper 1,150,982
7 Einstein@Home 1,081,080
8 MilkyWay@Home 1,055,753
9 Asteroids@Home 1,043,040

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’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.
