Interesting. What exactly is the TRT? Sounds a little different than the usual credit-based events.

For Nick Name and others who are wondering: the Total Run Time is the amount of CPU time crunched by the entire team per day. See the Total Run Time column here: https://www.worldcommunitygrid.org/...ry.do?teamId=R2DWDGR1BN1&numRecordsPerPage=14. This is found by adding the CPU time for each task for each team member that day. If you look at your WCG Results Status page in the My Contribution tab of the WCG website, you'll see a column for CPU Time / Elapsed Time (hours). The Total Run Time is from the CPU Time statistic.

So essentially, this is a challenge about how many CPU cores/threads a team can dedicate to WCG and how long they can run them. A great place to park your Android farms for a few weeks and a reason to get those old laptops up and running again.

Looks like we are in 11th place this morning. If we can stay in the top 20, I'll add 64 threads when we start the second round.

Congratulations to all participating team members!
For those members that missed the first week, please consider joining us for round two. We need to increase our output during week two to have any chance of progressing to the "Top 10 Teams" challenge in week three. :)

CRUNCH ON! :USA:

It's official, we have been invited to round two and I have accepted the challenge for the team! :)


We will need to step up our game a bit if we have any chance of progressing to round three.
Let's do this!

The second week of challenge will take place from Monday, October 08, 2018 to Sunday, October 14, 2018.

Good morning from Central Texas and just checked the crunching statistics: Team ITALY is nipping at our heels and the stats show that unless we add more power NOW the men and women of Italy will probably pass us
and drop us to position 11 by the end of this day. The temperature outside has moderated considerably and I am operating at 100%. Bill

Unfortunately my concern came to pass but I salute Team Italy in their ability to pass us and obvious add the computing power to take over the #10 position. I did add 3 threads to the effort with a laptop with i3 CPU but that hardly at all overcame the Adriatic bordering great Italians.
