    If it were not for Crunchers sans frontières (Crunchers without borders), there wouldn't be any challenge at all this month.
    I may have to delve deeper to find team challenges that are administered outside of BOINCStats...


    April 03 to April 10 - B@P POTM - Climate Prediction
    Boinc@Poland (B@P) has a new Project-of-the-month (BOPTM): Climate Prediction!
    Climate prediction actually is the best illustration of the law of diminishing returns. With the hugely increased computing power behind the models as used by meteorologists over the last decades there is sadly hardly any increase in accuracy of their prediction -at least to the general public. The presentation of the weather forcasts has improved considerably though...Five of our members are active with these huge WUs.

    April 03 to April 10 - Wall-Sun-Sun "Easter Egg Hunt"
    Egg hunt is a game during which decorated eggs, real hard-boiled ones or artificial, filled with or made of chocolate candies, of various sizes, are hidden in various places for children to find. The game may be both indoors and outdoors. When the hunt is over, prizes may be given out for various achievements, such as the largest number of eggs collected, for the largest or smallest egg, for the most eggs of a specific color, consolation prizes, booby prizes, etc.
    Thus winners in our WSS Hunt will be in the following categories:
    • Most Near Finds
    • Nearest Find
    • Highest Score
    Zhi-Wei Sun notes PrimeGrid's search efforts with great interest. His opinion is that the first WSS prime would be found by Primegrid:
    I encourage you and those working with the PrimeGrid project to continue your search for WSS primes. It is interesting to see who will be the lucky one to find the first WSS prime.
    We're currently at 7.68e16. The twelve day October 2014 WSS challenge saw 1,185,563 WUs completed. Based on this rate we should complete 691,578 WUs in seven days taking the leading edge to 8.3e16. More about the Wall-Sun-Sun prime search can be found here. News and infos about the PRPNet client can be found here.
    To take part, you have to activate the following lines in prpclient.ini: server=WALLSUNSUN:100:10:prpnet.primegrid.com:1300 1 The "10" here downloads 10 WUs at a time. Gamer007 is our sole active member here at the moment.
    Stats will be available at the well known place here.


    April 16 to April 20 - CRUNCHATHLON WCG [MONTHLY RUN - RACE V]
    This challenge, issued by the french team CRUNCHERS SANS FRONTIERES, will take place every month at varying dates for four days. All teams are welcome Let us take forward the World Community Grid project!
    Those OET WUs still are hard to get, but I was able to score a bronze badge during this challenge....I though I might get a sapphire MCM badge first, but that's for later...tomorrow or so

    April 23 to May 01 - World Expo Challenge
    This is going to be a challenge for the GFN-WR and GFN-Short. GFN stands for Generalized Fermat Prime Search. GFN-WR takes long: I finished this one on my HD 7660D -that's the IGP of my A10-5700 Trinity! 7 days might be too short to repeat it...
    To participate in this Challenge, please select only the two Generalized Fermat Prime Search projects. Important: The deadline for these WUs is significantly longer than seven days, so make sure your computer returns the WUs before the end of the challenge.
    Application builds are available for 64 bit CPUs (with a 64 bit OS) with special versions for AVX and SSE3 capable CPU's. Windows user must select these manually, Linux and Mac users will get them automatically. Clients are ALSO available for double precision Nvidia AND AMD GPUs. The GPU apps are 32 bits and will run on 32 or 64 bit CPUs and OSs. Apps are available for Linux, Windows and MacIntel. Unfortunately any GPU that lacks double precision hardware can't be used. Please see the list of Compatible GPUs for NVidia and for AMD/ATi more details.



    April 24 to April 28 - CRUNCHATHLON GPUGRID [MONTHLY RUN - RACE VIII]
    This challenge issued by the french team CRUNCHERS SANS FRONTIERES will take place every month at varying dates for four days. All teams are welcome Let us take forward the GPUGRID.net project! Keep crunching for biomedicine and do real science, at home! But do bring a heavy, recent nVidia GPU...
