The winner is a new concept: crunching four "alpha" projects that may have intermittent WUs at the same time and attempting to shrub a steady stream of work between them. Check out the four projects below - after the vote, threw in a brand new one Amicable Numbers just for fun. If you have patience for only one, try Denis - it has had steady WUs lately. Have fun with these neglected projects - let us know what you're shrubbing and how it's doing...

Amicable Numbers
Amicable Numbers is an independent research project that uses Internet-connected computers to find new amicable pairs. You can contribute to our research by running a free program on your computer. Current goal of the project is to find all amicable pairs with smallest member < 2 ^64.
All new findings are published regularly on the Amicable pairs list page.

Denis
DENIS uses volunteer hosts to compute large packets of cardiac electrophysiology simulations. ... Electrophysiological models are a powerful tool to study the electrical activity of cells under normal or pathological conditions. These models can also help predict the effects of drugs in heart and brain cells. These models are complex and itís neccessary to simulate them many times (varying the conditions or model parameters). For this reason, researchers in this field usually require high computational power. We have created DENIS as a simulation infrastructure to help researchers.

Especially are targeted those cancers, which have cancer stem cells actively involved and cancers on metastasis stage.

I signed up for DENIS, i haven't shrubbed there for a while so its' time to stop by. I signed up for Amicable Numbers, too.. sounds like a likable bunch and they're brand new, starting today, good time to snag a fashionably low user number.

Helping with debugging is good karma. I've come from the jungles of R&D and alpha testing is really where the action is. And I'm also the guy who's the one vote for Leiden Classical in the CPU POTM - learning is alot of fun and something close to my heart.. it's a good feeling to help out.

I have attempted to sign up for the brand new numbers project and it tells me i am entering an invalid email even though it is the same I have signed up with on every other project. Not sure what sort of coconuts are already being thrown around over there

If you want another Alpha project, here's Sourcefinder - a development project supporting SkyNet POGS. Sourcefinder is about testing the performance and quality of the Duchamp Sourcefinding application. We've built a simulated cube of the sky containing various radio sources, and it's the job of Duchamp to work out where the sources are. We plan on running Duchamp over the whole cube of simulated data to work how many of the radio sources in the cube it can find. Duchamp will need to be able to identify correct sources while keeping false positives to a minimum.

KWSN has already shrubbed over 100K points in Amicable Numbers, moving us way up to 21st place.

Here are some Alpha project updates. Does anyone have comments on these, how are they shrubbing - are they worth continued interest in the future?

Amicable Numbers
KWSN has shrubbed almost 500K points and is in 15th place. KWSN has been in Top 10 for daily production for the past few days. The Project is searching numbers up to 2 ^64. That's an astonishingly huge number - the ancient story of rice grains and a chess board may help us visualize it. Does anyone know if we'll be done with this task by the end of this century? Ni!
Milestones:
John Galt 007 200,000
Yankton 150,000
LanDroid 50,000
bowtieguru 10,000
Plomos 10,000
agogale 1,000

Citizen Science Grid
KWSN shrubbed 63K yesterday, almost double the average at the start.
Milestones:
JumpinJohnny 700,000
LanDroid 70,000
wcwinter 70,000
PhastPhred 40,000
Plomos 40,000
GWH0744 40,000
Michael Tillman 30,000

Denis
Can we get more LUV on this project? It involves cardiology.
Milestones:
PhastPhred 25,000
Plomos 20,000
Michelle 4,000
bowtieguru 3,000

Drug Discovery
Production has increased significantly to 13K yesterday, but can we get more LUV on this one too? This project involves cancer. The Stomp Factor is gigantic on this project - KWSN has passed 18 teams this week and could pass several dozen more if we continue to increase shrubberations. Currently in 63rd place.
Milestones:
Plomos 10,000
LanDroid 10,000

Any other comments?

Denis has had intermittent issues with submitting units to the servers, seems to be ok right now but not sure if it is totally fixed. Amicable uses multithreading to crunch units so it has a habit of hogging your cores until it has finished, but the point output is decent. I'm running everything except the new pogs thing because the website was freaking out the other day when i tried to join and i haven't had time to try again yet.

Amicable Numbers
Quote:
Amicable numbers are two different numbers so related that the sum of the proper divisors of each is equal to the other number. (A proper divisor of a number is a positive factor of that number other than the number itself. For example, the proper divisors of 6 are 1, 2, and 3.)
The smallest pair of amicable numbers is (220, 284). They are amicable because the proper divisors of 220 are 1, 2, 4, 5, 10, 11, 20, 22, 44, 55 and 110, of which the sum is 284; and the proper divisors of 284 are 1, 2, 4, 71 and 142, of which the sum is 220.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amicable_numbers

This project has identified over 1000 new amicable numbers. Over 1.2 billion total are known, and all amicable pairs with smaller member below 10^18 have been identified.
KWSN passed six teams to move into 9th place. We're still in the Top 10 daily production with an average of 214K and are about to pass 2 million points. Tasks ready to send 9548.

Ya I had some issues with email addresses and cpid's during the middle of this run so I have two accounts at Denis. Everything should now being going through the one with the higher point total though, just had some stragglers validate late for enough points to hit over 10 k looks like.

Amicable Numbers is the biggest success of this group. Should we add that one and any others to the potm ballot? CSG seemed generous with points. Which were your favorites?

Found 6 amicable number pairs, but they're 17-21 or so digits long..so they're cool, I guess, but too long to remember for pins/passwords. And scored a nice 10k badge from drugdiscovery@home, too.

How about adding stop@home to the list? We can jump ahead before the unwashed masses start to filter in.

Good info Bowtieguru - I found 49 Amicable Number pairs. Here's one pair - everyone should check...

12520109177002220990=2*5*7*89*101*4169299*4772387
13782816876879507010=2*5*29*61*149*691*5783*1308557

We could add Stop@Home to the list. Perhaps we should keep discussing new projects in this thread?
