Right now we're in 25*61*... range, still several years away from the end of phase 2.


I now searching 25*59*... range. Does the second multiplication factor (i.e. 59 and 61) always in descending order? I mean the next range search would be 25*57*..., etc?

I randomly sampled the tasks that I had completed over the past 3 days with varying run time and task size. Though not perfect, it seems to indicate that there is a good correlation between task size and run time. All tasks were completed on the same GPU. BTW, I"m running two tasks per GPU and the GPU run time shown in the graph is not normalized to one task. There is one outlier but if we ignore this single point, the regression-squared or R-squared increased from 52% to 95%.

Wondering if there is any chance to allocate higher credit points for larger task size? Some folks don't care about credits but just my one cent to keep things within reasonable perspective. Perhaps allocating task size of 1011, 1012 and 1013 with different fixed credit buckets?

According to the server status https://sech.me/boinc/Amicable/server_status.php, the 10^20 search will be completed by Feb 2019 based on current run rate. I think it is a good time to decide if we can start 10^21. The new Nvidia RTX cards are so much faster in AN project. For e.g. RTX 2080 can finish a task in 4 mins avg http://wuprop.boinc-af.org/results/projet.py?projet=Amicable+Numbers&application=Amicable+Numbers+up+to+10%5E20&plateforme=all&cpu_family=%2C&gpu_family=NVIDIA%2CGeForce+2000+Series when compare to 1080Ti of about 7-7.3 mins average.

I've added 3 badges:
1) For discovering 100 amicable pairs
2) For discovering 1000 amicable pairs
3) For discovering 10000 amicable pairs

Each badge replaces the previous one once a user reaches the next milestone.

Note: badge images are placeholders for now. If you have better ideas - don't be silent.

Added 4 more badges: for discovering 200, 500, 2000 and 5000 amicable pairs. So each next milestone is 2 or 2.5 times more than the previous one.

Thank you sir!

May I suggest something here about the points and badges? I would prefer a system based on 100, 200, 500,1000, 2000,5000,10000, points/pairs awarded etc for reaching the next milestone, so this kind of balance between waiting too long for the new badge and don't make it too easy to get a new one. Just my 2 cents.
