    I'll try for a new Ryzen 3 3100 (testing one now in a new build for my daughter) or a Ryzen 5 3600 -if budget permits- for this challenge.
    'Budget' cpu R3 3100 keeps a nice pace against my old i7-3770...

    We are at day 4 of the second week and manage to keep just in the top-25 overall -which grants us another week of challenge-
    and the top-20 'Pure', which grants us a special battle against other pure teams in the fifth week of this challenge.
    Next challenge week may prove more difficult.....

    19th 'pure'

    - At the end of this second week of challenge, the 25 best teams will be invited to the third week of challenge that will take place from Monday, October 05, 2020 to Sunday, October 11, 2020.
    Invitations will be sent to the Captains of the 25 best teams on Tuesday, September 29, 2020.

    I don't see us making it into the 4th week (we would need to jump up 15 places for that), but with a little effort we can make it to week five though, when only the 'pure' are to fight it out amongst themselves.
    We 'just' need to stay in the Pure top-20.

    We can do it.

    Not that long until it starts unfortunately.

    I will have made some progress in PG as I am trying to get my 200M badge in 321_sr2Sieve. When I have that I can divert resources to WCG.
    I will switch some faster machines from SOB to the sieve sub-project so the slower machines can run WCG, seeing as the aim is time crunching not work completed in the THOR challenge.

    I've re-activated my Raspberry Pi 2's and will try to revive my Cubieboard 4. The Linux Odroid-N2+ will be there too next week.
    The two Pi-2's take over for my 64-bit Pi-4 that will run WCG. I might convert the other two Pi-4's to 64-bit Raspbian OS too, as
    you now, with the latest version of the OS, seem to be able to boot them from M.2 SSD (provided that SSD is in a casing with USB 3.0 connector to the Pi).

    As predicted: we didn't make it to week four, the 'Overall Final', but we did make it to week five, the final for the 'Pure' teams (excluding Greedcoin/the Borg, other commercially based teams and Big Institutes)
    Three weeks of 'rest'/(re)building/repairing/upgrading/etc, the final week for the 'Pure' starts 2 November, the day before the US elections.
