I found a prime number! PrimeGrid BOINC project

I found a prime number! PrimeGrid BOINC project

Hi everyone,

Today, I got an automated private message in the PrimeGrid BOINC project telling me I found a prime number in their AP27 subproject.

The message I got is the following,

Primegrid prime number notice

Here it is in plaintext:

(This is an automated message. Replies to this message will not be read.)

Dear AP finder,

Congratulations! Our records indicate that a computer registered by you has found a unique Arithmetic Progression of primes of length 21. This computer is assigned to the AP27 project. Since primes found in this subproject are not large enough to report to the Top 5000 Primes List, your AP21 sequence is visible immediately.

Workunit 574020495 : 108096152238162469+6453505523#n for n=0..20

You can select the minimum length of AP for which to receive these notifications in your PrimeGrid preferences.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us and we will surely resolve any problems.

Once again, congratulations on your find! Thank you for participating in PrimeGrid.

Sincerely,
The PrimeGrid Staff

Diamond 10 Year Badge for World Community Grid’s [email protected] – Phase 2

Diamond 10 Year Badge for World Community Grid’s [email protected] – Phase 2

Hi everyone,

Today, I’d like to show you another nice badge that I got due to my Distributed Computing contribution. This time, the badge is from the World Community Grid project, specifically, the [email protected] – Phase 2.

I got the Diamond 10 Year badge, which is awarded once you do 10 years CPU time contribution. This badge looks as follows: FightAIDS@Home Phase 2 Diamond 10 Year Badge

This is the notice I got in BOINC:

FightAIDS@Home Phase 2 Diamond 10 Year Badge BOINC Message

And these are my stats up until this point:

FightAIDS@Home Phase 2 Diamond 10 Year Badge Stats

Right now, I’m contributing to this project on my Android devices, so keep expecting more badges from me!

100K credits and 25% contribution Badges on the OLDK1 BOINC project!

100K credits and 25% contribution Badges on the OLDK1 BOINC project!

Hi everyone,

As you may know, I participate in Distributed Computing projects that runs in the BOINC platform.

Recently, OLDK1 was whitelisted in the Gridcoin project whitelist, so I decided to give this project a chance.

OLDK1 is a project that primarily processes Latin Squares.

To my surprise, in just a few days, I earned the 100K credit badge and I also earned the 25% contribution badge:

OLDK1 100K Credits Badge

Hosts connected to this project:

Yup, I have my Intel and AMD machines crunching it! Count all of those cores!

That’s all!

Diamond 5 Year Badge for Microbiome Immunity Project from World Community Grid

Diamond 5 Year Badge for Microbiome Immunity Project from World Community Grid

Hi everyone,

Yesterday, I got the Diamond 5 Year Badge for the Microbiome Immunity Project from World Community Grid. The badge is the following: Microbiome Immunity Project - Diamond 5 Year Badge

This badge is awarded after contributong 5 Years in CPU Time. As I’ve explained in my previous badge achievements, CPU Time is like real time, except that the time is dependent to a workunit and per thread. For example, If I have an 8 Core AMD Ryzen 7 with Simultaneus Multithreading enabled, making it 16 threads total, and I get 16 workunits from this project and they are running simultianeusly, it means that the time is multiplied by 16 because all 16 threads are running the project application. In other words, CPU time is the time a workunit has ran in the PC. 16 Workunits running for an hour means 16 CPU Time hours.

This is the notice I got in BOINC (Berkeley Open Infrastructure for Network Computing):

Microbiome Immunity Project - Diamond 5 Year Badge BOINC Message

(Yes, I need to update BOINC)

Here’s my stats up to this point:

Microbiome Immunity Project - Diamond 5 Year Badge Stats 1

Here are more stats:

I’m contributing to the current active projects in World Community Grid 24/7 in a variety of devices.

Keep an eye for future achievements!

Got the Sapphire Badge for World Community Grid’s Microbiome Immunity Project!

Got the Sapphire Badge for World Community Grid’s Microbiome Immunity Project!

Hi everyone,

I finally got the Sapphire badge for the Microbiome Immunity Project from IBM’s World Community Grid. This is a badge that is awarded after performing 2 CPU-time years of contribution toward a project.

This is the new shiny badge I got: Microbiome Immunity Project - Sapphire Badge

The message I got in BOINC (Berkeley Open Infrastructure for Network Computing):

Microbiome Immunity Project - Sapphire Badge BOINC Notice

And here are my stats as of now:

There’s still no power in Puerto Rico where my 24-thread server is located, and even if there’s power, there’s a change there’s no internet services, so my stats here doesn’t show my contribution for that server. I hope the power and internet services gets restored soon!

These are the projects I’ve set to contribute and earn the rest of the badges:

Microbiome Immunity Project - Sapphire Badge - Selected projects

My plans doesn’t change. I will continue crunching to these projects and try to earn the next badges 😁

Emerald Badge for World Community Grid’s Microbiome Immunity Project

Hi everyone,

Today, I got another badge in World Community Grid, and it’s the Emerald Badge for the Microbiome Immunity Project! Microbiome Immunity Project - Emerald Badge

This means I’ve processed 1 year worth of workunits in my machines.

The next badge will be the Sapphire Badge, awarded after processing 2 CPU-time years of workunits.

The message I got in BOINC:

Microbiome Immunity Project - Emerald Badge BOINC Notice

My stats so far:

My workunits in one of my machines:

Microbiome Immunity Project - Emerald Badge - Tasks in BOINC

I’ll be contributing toward this project as well [email protected] and see if I can get the next badges 😁. My goal is to reach 20 years on those projects. I’m also participating in Help Stop TB, but tasks on that one are rarely delivered to my machines.

Here you can see the projects I’ve selected to contribute:

Microbiome Immunity Project - Emerald Badge - Selected projects

And yes, I’m also contributing toward the [email protected] project as can be seen on the BOINC screenshot above.

That’s all for this update!

20 Year badge for my contribution of Smash Childhood Cancer from World Community Grid

20 Year badge for my contribution of Smash Childhood Cancer from World Community Grid

Hi everyone,

I did it! I finally got the Diamond 20 year badge for my contribution toward the Smash Childhood Cancer from World Community Grid.

This came as a surprise since these days I’ve only been crunching tasks with my 24-thread server which is located in Puerto Rico. All of my other machines were disabled since Sunday due to Hurricane Irma passing over the State of Florida. They are all now activated once again since we just got power again. You can see in the stats below that for these pasts days, there was little contribution done compared to the rest of the past days.

The badge is the following: World Community Grid - Smash Childhood Cancer - Diamond 20 Year Badge

Notice received in BOINC:

World Community Grid - Smash Childhood Cancer - Diamond 20 Year BOINC Message

My World Community Grid stats up to this point:

World Community Grid - Smash Childhood Cancer - Diamond 20 Year - Stats 1
World Community Grid - Smash Childhood Cancer - Diamond 20 Year - Stats 2

Now, I’ve changed the priority to receive some Outsmart Ebola Together, [email protected], Help Stop TB, and Microbiome Immunity Project tasks, to collect the next badges of those projects 🙂

Let’s Keep Crunching!

Ruby Badge for the Microbiome Immunity Project project from World Community Grid

Ruby Badge for the Microbiome Immunity Project project from World Community Grid

Hi everyone,

As I said yesterday, today I woke up with a new shiny badge, Ruby Badge from the Microbiome Immunity Project from World Community Grid.

The Ruby badge is the following: Microbiome Immunity Project - Ruby Badge

It is awarded after 180 days of contribution, of which as the time of this post my contribution is 203 days.

The next badge is the emerald badge, awarded after 1 year of contribution.

Remember that in the computing world, one CPU thread equals 1 day, so 8 threads processing 24/7 means 8 days per calendar day.

Here’s my stats so far:

Microbiome Immunity Project - Ruby Badge Stats 1
Microbiome Immunity Project - Ruby Badge Stats 2

I won’t stop contributing toward these amazing scientific projects. To learn more about the Microbiome Immunity Project, click here.

Finally, take a look at the tasks I’m currently crunching in my Dual Intel Xeon X5670 machine (24 threads total):

The views keeps coming! 2,600+ views already in my MSI RX 570 video!

The views keeps coming! 2,600+ views already in my MSI RX 570 video!

Hi everyone,

The views are still coming to my video “MSI Armor RX 570 OC 4GB in my PC – AMD Radeon RX 570 4GB GPU”. In fact, it now has over 2,600 views!

2600+ view Youtube MSI video

I’m so happy, and the views per 48 hours are also in the 100 views range, which means this video will have lots and lots of more views in the following days. In fact, this video has been the most watched in the last 48 hours period:

2600+ view Youtube MSI video realtime

Honestly, I don’t know why, but usually, my disliked videos are the ones that gets all the attention. It seems that is the case with this video XD

Either way, thanks all for all your support to my YouTube Channel!

BTW, i’ve been posting these videos to Reddit, but most of the subreddits seems not to like people who posts their own YouTube videos. Do any of you guys have any recommended subreddit to post my technology videos?

Thanks to all and have a wonderful day!
