    OK team we're at 11th now, got quite a few AWS instances with Xeon Platinum 8124M running. I've hit the go pedal and we should get in the top 10 soon.

    I need some help to get and stay in the Teams top 10.

    This link is good:

    Not much. To use multi-threading you need an app_config.xml in the C:\ProgramData\BOINC\Projects\www.primegrid.com folder (ProgramData is initially a hidden folder) which you can create here:

    Come on guys, we are gaining on Team Mixi at 10th but not fast enough to overtake before the week-long race ends.

    I might have to engage the afterburners (put more AWS instances on it).

    I've fired up my backup machine as well now and got that running Primegrid TRP full time too, so another 4 processors on top of my original 16. Not a lot, but every little helps? We're only 30,000 points behind...
