Sprint challenge was just announced - it's SiDock@home.
Planet3DNow has been producing quite a bit in this project for a while, so it will take a good push to keep up with them (and the coalition teams) for the sprint. Bunkering in this project is really difficult since the project limits the number of tasks in progress to 2x the CPU cores. I'm planning to switch my computers over to SiDock as soon as they run out of their current tasks in other projects so they'll be up and going when the sprint starts at 11:00 AM UTC (6 AM EST).

It should be 7AM EST unless I'm messing up something with daylight savings.

"For account creation please use a Crunch_4Science invitation code. It is not needed when registering by BOINC Manager."

Further, they only allow 2x your thread count tasks at a time without jumping through the hoops to fake that. It happens to be my current project anyway, so, yeah! ;)

Starting stats. I don't know if I'll be able to post stats throughout, but wanted to at least post stats, from the Sidock website at 7AM ET.

I grabbed the starting stats. I'll attempt to get daily updates during the sprint.

edit: IceCold beat me to it.. ;)
If you're able to do daily updates that'd be great. I can jump in with stats as needed as well if it seems like they haven't been posted in awhile, but I figured at least publicly posting the starting numbers would be a good start.

The daily update is at 5 AM my local time. If I'm awake then, I can grab the numbers, but since it's the weekend I'm definitely not going to make any promises.. :)

server_status.php says now:
Research progress
Target: corona_RdRp_v1 (%) 83.603
Let's see how long the remaining 16.397 % will last.
Now, on Saturday past 07:00 UTC, the project progressed another 10 %. IOW 6 % of the work towards the 4th target remain to be done.

The fifth target has been announced yesterday, called "SARS-CoV-2 EProtein" (envelope protein). Its workunits have not been loaded onto the server yet.

Edit: The 5th target is listed at server_status.php now too. I suppose its workunits will be available right away when the remaining corona_RdRp_v1 tasks were sent.

@cellarnoise and @Howdy are new additions to the stats since yesterday - thanks for joining in the sprint! It's a close race between us and TSBT for third place.

Here's a screenshot of league 2 also. It doesn't affect our standing, but the very close race between Crunching@evga and Boinc.Italy for position 2 will be interesting to watch. OCUK has a significant lead in first place.

Argh another server_status being slow execution time

Time to increase timeout to 10 seconds....
EDIT:
Code:

Unsuccessful stat on filename containing newline at /usr/local/share/perl/5.24.1/XML/Simple.pm line 980.

We are now in 3rd by 30k points. Not sure if we have enough to get 2nd. 24 hours from now my 503 cores will either get us closer or not.
