Just a news update
I just wanted to remind our team members that you should put a [H] in your nick at YoYo. This allows your Muon points to show up in our team rankings at the Muon project instead as a solo user. It will not affect your stats with BOINC. For example: I normally use the handle or nick Coleslaw for most DC projects. At YoYo I use [H]Coleslaw. At BOINCStats, my YoYo stats still show up under Coleslaw because they pull your stats based on your CPID. They will typically list your name how it is on the majority of the projects as far as searching for you. Thus, there is no reason not to add the [H] to your name there. You can edit your nick from the YoYo website account settings.
Duly noted and done.
Also, they are testing ARM work units for Android 5 (aka work units designed for PIE which runs on Android 4.1+) over at YAFU. They appear to be OGR work units.
Looks like YoYo is getting into the Collatz arena
18 August 2017 Collatz: Windows App available
A Windows application is now available for the Nontrivial Collatz Cycle search.
Linux too, I guess I did some ...
yeah...you were the first on the team to get the badge. Congrats!

They are quite good with credits ... per WU (switched off OGR in profile)
Got a few borgs adjusted to start accepting some work again.
Looks like I'll have something else to push towards....lol https://hardforum.com/threads/yoyo-recognition-thread.1722893/
I tried nontrivial collatz (need wingman, maybe the project is still new?) and ecm still gives out the most PPD. So I'm still sticking to ecm till the end of the FB.
I missed this news post earlier this month. So, there is no longer a need for people to put [H] in their name at YoYo. And yes you can change it at the project without any recourse.
Another new sub project
Ran a few PC tasks last night mostly on my i7-2600K (4 cores), still pending results. Run time about 2 hours each. WU requires wingman and task due period is 24 hours.
The two new sub projects are apparently really small releases and will end in a matter of a few weeks. If anyone is badge hunting... hop on it now.
It's been selectable for about a week but they just updated their front page. New sub project called Siever. Looks to be Windows only.
Some of these work units take days to complete. Craziness.
At first I thought they were hanging at certain percentages, but I guess it only reports in 10% or 20% increments for some of the tasks. I have one currently at 4 days.
Yeah I hate this project so much.
I ran it on two machines and the output wasn't bad. Seems the first batch took days and now they average 5-7 hours.
I'm a few hours away from my million and then I'm done.
I still need to try lowering my overclock to check Yafu.
I never have any pending work for this project.
Wrong project. Have since corrected it. You're fast.
I have 5 to 8 pending on yoyo usually.
Every time I check I have 0, guess I just get lucky. And yeah, I have email notifications setup and I'm off work today so I'm a little bored.
It may depend on what sub projects you have selected Skillz
I have them all selected. Seems the ECM ones can take days but the ogr's are right around 7 hours.
The subproject ECM tasks don't checkpoint. Crazyness. It is sending my 64GB Threadripper these ECM tasks that take RAM amounts of 5 to 8+ gb per task. In Windows they then eventually ask for more than 64gb where the tasks then get suspended and the task completion gets dropped down to 0%. It appeared to work OK in linux for a day while I was running it there, but I wasn't watching it close enough. I just went and disabled this subproject and enabled the other projects. I'm not wasting power running tasks that don't checkpoint. Onwards to a different Yoyo subproject. The one million milestone is coming soon for me on this project.
