It's sad to see everyone leave the old (and unfinished) application "Amicable Numbers up to 2^64" so I decided to double credit points for it.

Everyone can switch their CPUs back to gain some more credits.

Note that you can run "Amicable Numbers up to 2^64" on CPU and "Amicable Numbers up to 10^20" on GPU on the same PC at the same time!

Here's what you need to set in project preferences:
Use CPU, AMD/ATI GPU, NVIDIA GPU = yes
Run application 2^64 = yes
Run application 10^20 = no
Accept work from other applications = yes


With these settings your CPU will get tasks (and more credits in general) from "2^64" only, and your GPU will get tasks from "10^20" thanks to "Accept work from other applications = yes" selected.

I, for one, am still crunching the old 2^64 app. I have a box that gets both versions for the CPU (2X12 cores, 48 threads). Now, I'm thinking about using my GPU to crunch these, too! :)

After a few months of not finding any pairs and just after months of finding thousands many of us were happy to see a new project number set and see our pair count go up so we dumped 2^64 just for that reason alone. Personally I would like to see the 2^64 GPU app still active as the 10^20 takes 20hr on a 2gb gt730 ( 1400mb+ usage ) for example or 2hr on a 2gb 750ti , not all of us have 1060's or 3 1080ti's running 5wu's per card because we are rich and are donating older hardware as their crunchers. It would be so nice if boinc projects worked like the gridcoin pools , a man in the middle XML editor that allows you to choose per machine you have attached to the project to select if that project uses CPU / INTEL GPU / ATI GPU / NVIDIA GPU and add android. Any chance , as I see Arm8 that we will see an Arm7 application as many of us have phones and tablets running other projects and would love to move them to Amicable Numbers. Thanks for the 2x credit , now i'd dump 10^20 for GPU and 2x 2^64 lol.

PS: Awesome update/change of the join page. During your " Interview with a Boinc admin @ https://github.com/Erkan-Yilmaz/Gridcoin-hangout-minutes/blob/master/hangout_2017_02_18.MD " I had said something about that and it was unimportant to you. It was the default project xyz about xxx and said it was for windows/mac/all android like it was wide open support but I want to say all of the pages look excellent and I look awesome now! It's great that from sign up at the site ( i now most go threw boinc ) it tells you right off the bat what is supposed if you have not looked at the applications. Thank you , not much we can give you back for your time and great work , but crunch... :)

Hey, you are rewarding something like 50 20 times more than other projects. Why don't you think at lowering instead?

Why don't you work on getting the other projects to raise their lousy credits? :)

Hi,
How many task left ?

You can always look at the server status page (Computing -> Server status in the top menu of the site). Right now it says "ETA at current speed (2^64) 4 Aug 2017".

There are no new WUs, I've just spawned more tasks for existing WUs to speed up things. Check https://sech.me/boinc/Amicable/workunit.php?wuid=2591144 for example. It has 3 tasks "In progress" now, so it should finish as soon as any of these 3 tasks is finished.
