The S4 run is about to cross the 50% line!!! :-)

I think this is like sailors crossing the equator - perhaps we should have an audience with the gods like they do on ships. Not with King Neptune of course but Intel, Pentium, AMD, Athlon ..... :-)

Maybe we should all get to it and
- swab down the registers with clean bits
- address each other with valid pointers
- rescue execution threads from infinite loops
- interrupt a peripheral of your choice ( they're always doing it )
- flush the caches

etc.... you know, that sort of thing. :-)
Any other suggestions?
GO E@H!!
Cheers, Mike.

I'm optimized and ready to go for the second half.

That's the spirit!
Well, we're in it ..... just crossed over the 50% in the last half hour or so!!
GO E@H!! :D

Did my Spring cleaning about

Did my Spring cleaning about 2 weeks ago; found lots more dust than expected, including collecting on the CPU's fan blades and also on the fins of the heatsink below it. I'll check at 6 month intervals from now on...

A hearty congratulations to

A hearty congratulations to everyone crunching. This is really kicking along nicely. I am happy to say I have exceeded my own expectations in helping the project. My machines are crunching away well, and I am happy I can help.

I put in some more RAM and cleaned out all the dust and cat hair while I was at it. I'm optimised and Einstein has always had a 50% resource share. Go Einstein!!

Hi,
I added my old Celly 1700 to the project.
Due to running Akosf optimizer this poor CPU thinks he's a real PIV.

I'm really psyched since I loaded the optimizer. Onward, crunchers!!

I'll worry about "flushing caches" and "addressing pointers" once I've crossed the 1 Million mark.. roughly 6 days from now. :D

Um, this is a little

Um, this is a little embarrassing to admit in public; I'll just say it: I'm not optimized

I thought I read a post of Bruce's that said the optimization would be distributed when the server was upgraded to handle the anticipated additional load; what's the scoop?

Aahh, you're not alone in the ranks of 'late' optimisers. But stung by your admission I've plonked akosf's S40 version onto my P4 HT 3G. Stunning - average times per Albert have plummeted from a bit more than 30K to a bit less than 8K!!
No wonder there has been floated a concern about server overload with greater WU throughput!
Ohh.. I'm dizzy.. whew ... now for the rest of my small farm..
Cheers, Mike.
