Winter Solstice Challenge  Dec 11 22:23:00 to Dec 21 22:23:00 (UTC)   Sub project GFN21 
 
From the PG thread.
 
Welcome to the Winter Solstice Challenge

The Final Challenge of the 2018 Challenge series is upon us. The Winter Solstice Challenge will be a 10 day celebration on account of the winter solstice. The challenge is being offered on PrimeGrid's Generalized Fermat Prime Search n=21 application. Come join us and warm yourself by the Solstice fires!

The Winter Solstice...a predictable event in nature that has occurred for billions of years. A way point in the cyclic motion of the Universe. Many of the today's major winter festivals and celebrations can trace their origins back to this event...the longest night of the year (or the shortest day). 

We'd like to wish everyone a Happy Holiday...whatever festival or celebration you may observe.

NOTE: 88% of the world's population lives in the Northern Hemisphere; therefore, we'll observe winter. However, the Southern Hemisphere will be experiencing the Summer Solstice.

This GFN-project is part of the challenge:

    It has not started Yet!
    Time until Winter Solstice challenge:
    3      02      15   24
    Days Hours Min Sec
    To go before it starts.
     
    Remember that any Task Downloaded before the Start time will Not Count.
    Being they are very long Tasks I would wait to download Task after the Clock starts to Count down to the End.
    Or 15 minutes after the start Dec 11 22:23:00 UTC

    The time in the red circle is PG servers time. Hit F5 to refresh, it is a snapshot of the time and does not move.
    The count down clock goes off your systems time clock, so it can be off.
    As long as you are past the servers time in the red circle you can download and run a task.

    No CPU tasks for me either. Did a test run on my 5930K and ETA's were 500+ hours. Guess it's time to upgrade lol.

    You can set the CPU to run multitask with an app_config file. That makes all the cores work on just one task at a time.
    Just like SMP was to folding at home. It will greatly cut down the time to do a task to a day or less depending on the CPU and speed and memory speed......
     
    C&P this to your app_config file. Change the nimber 4 (on both lines below where you see the 4) to how many cores/threads you want to use.  
     
    app_config>
    <app>
    <name>genefer</name>
    <gpu_versions>
    <gpu_usage>1.0</gpu_usage>
    <cpu_usage>0.1</cpu_usage>
    </gpu_versions>
    </app>
    <app_version>
    <app_name>genefer</app_name>
    <cmdline>-nt 4</cmdline> 
    <plan_class>cpuGFN21</plan_class>
    <avg_ncpus>4</avg_ncpus>
    </app_version>
    </app_config>
     
     
    To make an app_config file it is best to use NotePad
    Open NotePad C&P that info up there to notepad.
    Under File, Hit Save as
    Choose all files with the drop down right under where you put the name you want.
    Now name the file app_config.xml
    Hit save
    Now put that file you just made into the www.primegrid.com folder. 
    You fine that under C: , program data, BOINC, projects, www.primegrid.com
     
    In order to see the program data dir. you will have to show hidden files and folders in windows settings.
