    A quick look at stats.free-dc.org tells me that there were at least fifteen TeAm mates contributing to the sprint. I think that's a lot, and it's despite many of us have to cope with more than uncomfortable exterior temperatures now. (Not me, my location was easily cooled by open windows.)

    Since then we got 25 points for the Asteroids sprint, and 6 points in the Asteroids marathon. (We occupy 4th place with 12 points now, and should get to 3rd with 15 points tomorrow or still today.)

    491 + 25 + 6 = 522 points for the year, but http://formula-boinc.org/ shows us at 516 points just now. Either the year 2017 total is not quite in sync, or, more plausible, we dropped in ranks in some other marathons.

    Hi @yodap, nice work from Crunching@EVGA! Quite a sprint-in-a-sprint after that disheartening start with virtually no tasks available from the project server. :tropicaldrink:

    LOL, I was looking for where we gained two Marathon points. I've been crunching Sztaki on a few threads for a week, who would guess the Marathon totals there were so low :)

    I was going to quit because the points per time are so low, (about half of CreditNew, ugh) . If I can get more WUs I'll let it crunch for a while longer.

    VGTU has ceased the Visual Cryptography project, having gone about as far as they can go with it at the moment (If I understood that correctly). Instead they now have a new app, optimizing "Grillage", which a quick search says is related to building the foundation for large structures on soft ground.

    We currently are in 5th place with 10 points. WU's are limited intentionally, as this new app is a bit experimental just yet.

    Interesting, thanks for this info. I browsed a bit through their references and abstracts. My understanding is that they are evaluating optimization methods, using an example taken out of engineering (and idealized suitably) as a sort of benchmark or trial ground. I.e. it is not about solving design tasks. IOW I would classify this as a mathematics project, not as an engineering project.

    BTW whenever I saw heavy numerics applied in geotechnical engineering tasks, typically the most striking outcome to me was to realize once more how large the uncertainties really are, due to the incomplete knowledge about the site's subsoil even after all due diligence applied in site investigations and their interpretations.
