I don't have any Raspberry Pi's for you but I've seen that you've posted this on basically all BOINC forums.

What is it you want a Raspberry Pi cluster for¿

I can see that DS14x8 has started
https://numberfields.asu.edu/NumberFields/batch_status.html

Are we jumping ahead or just mixing things up? Either way I think it's a good idea.
Quick wins are good and it gamifies the system more meaning we get that dopamine hit when a batch is completed so we want to crunch more and don't feel deflated

create an xml file called app_config.xml inside of the project folder
(C:\ProgramData\BOINC\projects\numberfields.asu.edu_NumberFields)

I use the following where I run two tasks at once on my GPU

<app_config>
<app>
<name>GetDecics</name>
<max_concurrent>4</max_concurrent>
<gpu_versions>
<gpu_usage>.5</gpu_usage>
<cpu_usage>.25</cpu_usage>
</gpu_versions>
</app>
</app_config>

You will have to do this for each project
This is just an example and depending on how powerful or the type of GPU you can do multiple tasks at once
gpu_usage
1 = 1 task
.5 = 2 tasks
.25 = 4 tasks

Your Account > NumberFields@home Preferences

Select Edit Preferences

Tick the box 'Use AMD GPU'

This will allow you to crunch AMD WU's

That's excited and with the Gerasim BOINC challenge being completed recently I'm sure that we've chipped away a good amount of WU. Here's hoping to a successful year ahead

You could always crunch using your CPU, not as effective but still an option
I even crunch using my onboard Intel GPU sometimes, usually when I'm low on other CPU tasks

Great work, I like these flyers and I'm glad that you guys get the word out there

Ever since I heard that this project was lacking support I've done a big push to get a lot of WU's completed.

I've been pushing for the rest of my team mates to get involved as well and we've pushed it quite a bit.

I'm always happy when a BOINC project runs out of work as it's been completed
