The PrimeGrid Challenge Series is an annual competition based on the results of monthly challenges. The purpose of the Challenge is to spotlight a specific project within PrimeGrid's family of projects as well as to offer a little "healthy" competition for PrimeGrid's participants. It is also an opportunity for people to learn more about each specific project and have fun doing it. Below is a tentative schedule for 2020.

I plan to participate in all of the challenges again this year and it would be great if other team members joined in to help give the [H]orde a strong showing in the final results. Happy crunching!

FYI the International Bacon Day Challenge kicks off tomorrow.

The sixth challenge of the 2020 Series will be a 3-day challenge celebrating the day arbitrarily chosen by three graduate students at the University of Colorado Boulder to celebrate this notorious breakfast meat. The challenge will be offered on the PPSE-LLR application, beginning 3 September 00:00 UTC and ending 6 September 00:00 UTC.

This translates to 5PM PST or 8PM EST for those that are not UTC savvy.

This is only the specific Sub project PPSE-LLR and multithreading is NOT recommended.

Our team is currently sitting in 5th place for team ranking in the challenge series this year. Challenge series tracks both team and individual competitions. Good time to get badges in various PG sub projects if you have not run them before.

Yeah, it cooled off a bit, but my AC was still none too happy. You can really feel the extra heat PG with AVX pushes out.
