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,
Here it is in plaintext:

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.

Checking the task sent to my machine, it was found by my AMD Ryzen 7 2700X machine with its Nvidia Geforce GTX 1060 3GB GPU:
Today also, the PrimeGrid challenge ended:
This time, I ended in position #106:
That’s all! Proud to see my machines doing useful stuff 😁
Improvements to my Finished BOINC Tasks section in my website and today’s Cosmology@Home rank
That’s right! I’m already at position #8 in the Cosmology@Home challenge:
And that’s why I also made the Finished BOINC Tasks section at my website, so everyone can keep track of my completed BOINC Tasks 😁, as I sometimes get asked what hardware I use to crunch tasks that allow me to go up in the leaderboards 🙂.
It’s been 2 days since the yoyo@home BOINC challenge started. As team Gridcoin is participating in this one, I’m also participating as well 😁:
yoyo@home is a project that has several distributed computing projects and brings them to the BOINC environment. Some projects that are currently running there are the Siever, distributed.net’s OGR challenge, Perfect Cuboids, and more.
I’m running this project in my machines and here are some screenshots of BOINC with the project attached. They are all running Windows 10 Insider Preview:
You can see the amount of cores processing tasks and this is why I’m proud to announce that I’m currently in position #33 in the challenge started:
These are my statistics in the project:
You can see I have 2 badges as well.
I also have several tasks that are currently pending validation:
So, expect me to continue going up in the challenge leaderboard!
As with the past challenges, I’ll keep all of you updated 😁
Yesterday night, the Compete with team Gridcoin! GPUGRID BOINC competition ended, and today I’m sharing my results.
I reached position #80!
And up to today, I got 33 tasks validated. Yay!
I’m very happy for my contribution toward the project and the competition, and I’ll keep running this project to keep my GPUs busy while doing useful research.
Here, you can see my credits up to this point:
There’s another GPU competition coming, but unfortunately, Team Gridcoin isn’t part of it, so that means that while I can continue contributing toward the project, my stats will not be shown there because of the team not participating. However, there’s a yoyo@home competition which starts in 4 more days, in which Team Gridcoin is going to participate 😁
My general stats:
It’s been a long time since I posted about my stats in general, so here you can see my credits by project and how much credits I’ve been granted per project:
That’s basically it for this post! In 4 days, a new challenge starts and I’m ready 🙂!
