Just a heads up...
WUs with a name like sf3_DS-12x271 average about 12 hours on my 3.6 GHz core i7.
The other WUs are more reasonable, averaging between 1.5 and 3 hours depending on the batch.
and you will probably notice the occasional quickie at just a few seconds.

average about 12 hours

I wish you had not done this.
We want to finish WUs before the end, this is a race! Now we will have to either suspend or abort the long ones ~12 hours before the end :(

Bad for the race but I would guess the race will be great for the project. I had forgot how well this project pays. I moved it to 5M a while back and now think I will move it to 10M sooner rather than later.

I had no choice, we were running out of work and that was all there was. I only issued about 20k of them, that was late Wed (AZ time), and no more have been issued since. Hopefully most of them have been returned already.

You're welcome! And thanks to all the sprint participants who made this possible. I will have many results to sort through when I get home in a few days. :-)

I think you are referring to the 10x271 WUs. A portion of those are really fast and credit is based on run time so those will give very little credit.

There is no gpu app yet (at least several months away).

Eric, belated thanks for being such a good host of the Formula BOINC Sprint.

At the end of the sprint, I aborted many unfinished WUs in order to participate in a concurrent PrimeGrid challenge. Now that that one is over, I'll see that I crunch some more NumberFields to compensate. :-)
