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

Yay!

Today also, the PrimeGrid challenge ended:

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:

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):

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

Hi everyone,

I got the Gold badge from the Microbiome Immunity Project from World Community Grid and this night, I’ll receive the Ruby Badge!

This is the Gold badge for this project: Microbiome Immunity Project - Gold Badge

So far, I’ve contributed 178 days for this particular project, and the Ruby badge is awarded after 180 days, meaning today night I’ll get it 😁

An introduction to the Distributed Computing project Microbiome Immunity Project from World Community Grid and my first badges

An introduction to the Distributed Computing project Microbiome Immunity Project from World Community Grid and my first badges

Hi everyone,

Today, I’m happy to announce I have acquired the Bronze and Silver badge for World Community Grid new project called Microbiome Immunity Project.

For those who knows me well, you know I’m a big fan of Distributed Computing projects, especially the ones that runs on the BOINC platform. I believe that computing power should be donated to projects that have worthwhile causes, so I know that the electricity I waste is done for a good purpose as my machines happily crunch 24/7, receiving, processing, and returning tasks to the project.

This time, World Community Grid lauched the Microbiome Immunity Project, addind that to the already available projects which as of this post are Smash Childhood Cancer, OpenZika, Help Stop TB, [email protected] – Phase 2, Outsmart Ebola Together, Mapping Cancer Markers, and [email protected], all of which I’ve happily contributed donating my spare CPU power from all of my machines, including my phones and tablets (Yes, phones and tablets does help make the world a better place by contributing to these causes as well.)

The Microbiome Immunity Project is a project that aims to help scientists understand how bacterias play a role in our bodies and how they are responsible for different diseases like diabetes. Through our computations, we will enable Scientists to better understand all of this, by analizing different proteins and molecules from each bateria’s gene.

World Community Grid keeps on its mission to help solve medical and environmental issues by supporting these types of projects, but of course, the community plays a much bigger role by processing all of the project’s tasks.

So, given this introduction, I happily announce that I’ve received my Bronze badge, which was today upgraded to Silver, due to my contribution to this particular subproject of World Community Grid. The bronze badge looked like this: Microbiome Immunity Project - Bronze Badge while the Silver badge looks like this: Microbiome Immunity Project - Silver Badge.

The Bronze badge is awarded after 14 days of computing while the Silver badge is awarded after 45 days of computing. Note that in the BOINC computing world, a day is defined as one CPU thread doing research, so if my machine has 8 threads (A typical Intel i7 4c/8t CPU), that means that for each day of computing, I’m actually doing 8 CPU computing days.

Here’s the messages I received in the BOINC software regarding the badges:

Microbiome Immunity Project - Silver Badge BOINC notice

And here are my stats as of the time of this post:

Microbiome Immunity Project - Silver Badge in the WCG Stats

As you can see, I’ve contributed to a variety of subprojects from the World Community Grid project. The next badge for the Microbiome Immunity Project is the Gold badge, awarded after 90 days. You can see when a new award is given on this page by clicking here.
