challenge: 8th BOINC Pentathlon (May 5-19)

We've joined this years BOINC Pentathlon also.

Please suggest what kind of BOINC projects you'd like to crunch there.

Further info here.

 

Thanks

My machine crunches Milkyway and SETI (relatively well) but most other projects don't. I see Skynet POGS isn't listed. My rig eats Skynet like candy...loves it. As for WCG: I do OpenZika, FightAIDS and Smash Choldhood Cancer. I was doing Cancer Markers but stopped because my rig crunches that one slower.

 

Something wierd going on with the forum, I sometimes don't see my posts.

 

Edit my vote is for a3) the most Gridcoin users.

I suggest:

GPU project - Einstein@home

CPU project  - cosmology@home

for WCG - i not crunch it ..... so there is no matters for me.

About first question: i think a2 is the right strategy.

Hi erkan, that sounds great, especially since I don't have to do anything further to take part, since I'm with the Gridcoin team, and it looks like the team has already been registered for the challenge! I would like to support either of the following for the WCG project, since I think they address some of the most pressing medical issues at the moment:

  • Mapping Cancer Markers
  • OpenZika

after ca. 3 days the results are:

 

  • over 83% of current voter shares do NOT want a vote on the projects itself which we submit to the 8th BOINC Pentathlon, but base it on past data
  • for WCG: 81.28% of the voter shares prefer: Mapping Cancer Markers

 

if it'd come to a selection via direct project voting: 

  • GPU: 85.34% of the voter shares prefer MilkyWay
  • CPU: 47.63% Yoyo + 39.58% Cosmology

 

please vote until April 19

I must agree with the voting issue here... please place your voting within the voting function of your wallet. Because discussing this here is really not the best place for. And I assume everybody has his/her own reason to make a personal vote for one (or more) specific projects, and since the highest share of percentage will decide which projects will be "submitted" from OUR team, I suggest we should just encourage people to vote which has been done here now. We can do a reminder before the polls close, that should be about it. ;)
