    RSA Lattice Siever (2.0) News

    RSALS shutting down at the end of August, please migrate to NFS@Home...
    As announced 11 days ago, RSALS operations are being merged into the larger NFS@Home grid. The initial tests have been very positive, so migration will now proceed as intended. NFS@Home has a newer and better version of the same siever program (derived and improved from the original RSALS program). The same persons will remain involved in providing numbers and using the results, and feeding the BOINC server. We will stop feeding WUs into RSALS at the end of this month. You can finish your current work, and even take a bit more for the time being, but please schedule the migration of your BOINC clients to NFS@Home. You don't need to wait, you can migrate now. Unlike RSALS, NFS@Home appears in the BOINC Manager's list of projects. Our announcement seems to have sparked clients' interest into RSALS, as the power of RSALS raised from an indicated ~250-350 GFLOPS (on the status page) to more than 1300 GFLOPS at the time of this writing. Thanks for your interest, which helps multiple integer factoring projects, and thanks to volunteer post-processers for helping us :-) If you don't want the NFS@Home WUs to use more RAM than the current RSALS WUs do, you'll have to make sure, in the preferences of your account on NFS@Home ( http://escatter11.fullerton.edu/nfs/...subset=project ), that "lasieved" is the only enabled siever. If you want to make your computers work on harder numbers, then you can enable the "lasievee", "lasievef" and "lasieve5f" sievers, in increasing order of memory requirements. lasieve5f can require more than 1 GB of RAM per core. We hope to see you on NFS@Home soon :-) Most of the BOINC server programs will be stopped, but the current RSALS web pages will stay here and will continue to show your contributions to this great project. Lionel Debroux & squalyl for RSALS.

    aaa..no.
    objective --> achieved <-- we got the ranks we were aiming for.
    project closing down imminently. next 1 mil not feasible.
    next objective: pat on the back, round of beers, smattering of applause and move on.

    Round of beer: I'll second that
    As next objective we can also think about re-gaining our 13th world-wide position with Numberfields@Home, a very good paying project, with medal/badge for your signature (already on the way to my silver medal)
