I don't think there's any current challenges at the moment. Trying to break into the top 50 was mentioned a few times. If anything, I'd expect production to drop in the coming months as the weather warms up. I already had to scale back.Where and when is the next TeAm challenge?
I vote we hold a special, internal event to get us that much closer :thumbup:I don't think there's any current challenges at the moment. Trying to break into the top 50 was mentioned a few times. If anything, I'd expect production to drop in the coming months as the weather warms up.
I'm down with this. I believe Peter is the team captain, so he would have to setup the team challenges through WCG. If we decide to go this route.I vote we hold a special, internal event to get us that much closer :thumbup:
Processing of all work units is nearly complete, with just a few weeks remaining. Much work
remains to be done in our lab and in our compute cluster, compiling, analyzing, and mining
the results, generating new models, and propagating the advances back into the protein
crystallization pipeline. Work will carry on.
Meanwhile, the end of Help Conquer Cancer will not be the end of our involvement with the
World Community Grid. We are busy developing a new project that will search for prognostic
and predictive signatures (sets of genes, proteins, microRNAs, etc.) that help predict patient survival and response to treatment. The project will target multiple cancers. The title, launch
date, and further details will be announced at a later date.
The announcements are a bit vague, but I'm hoping the tasks last through the month. Or, at least until the next primegrid raceI noticed HCC GPU tasks are starting to slow down. They're still trickling in, but it looks like the finish line is near.
EDIT: The slowdown appear to be just for AMD tasks. My 2 x GTX 460 still has lots of Nvidia work.
This was posted on April 1 by one of the WCG Techs:Excellent! You're joining a winning team
I've got rig going from a 5850 to a 7950 soon - should increase the PPD for WCG nicely as long as there is work for it.
April 24 today so it probably won't be long before work runs out.25 days of work remaining for Help Conquer Cancer
Based on current estimates, there is now approximately 25 days of new work remaining for the Help Conquer Cancer project. Once all new work has been sent out for the project, only resend work units will be available (work units not previously computed correctly or on time).
The launch of GPU processing has significantly accelerated the completion of this research and as a result, Help Conquer Cancer will complete over 2 1/2 years sooner than would be possible otherwise. We are also looking at our future projects to see if they could benefit from GPU processing as well.
hah, great timing!This was posted on April 1 by one of the WCG Techs:

Looks like the project will run just a tad longer!The researchers have identified additional batches for this project which need to be run (and weren't included in the original 25 day estimate). I'm in the process of getting them loaded into BOINC and should be able to provide a more accurate estimated number of days left once this is complete. At minimum though, there should be more than five days left of work before we exhaust the supply of non-resend work units.
Yup, you got it.Why do points wildly differ on FreeDC versus the WCG website?
FreeDC says 40,000, yet WCG says 255,276.
Guessing it's the 7 WCG points = 1 BOINC point thing?
Grab 'em while they're hot!All remaining work for the project is now loaded into BOINC and there are now about 2.5 days of non-resend work remaining for this project.
knreed said:We have just finished distributing the last of the new work for the Help Conquer Cancer project. It will take about 7-10 days for the in progress work for the project to complete. During this time there will periodically be additional results sent out to finish up those in-progress workunits.
THANK YOU so much for your contribution and efforts on this project!
