    Double Credits

    AN came out with a new app 10^20 and most people moved over to it since you can actually find Amicable pairs.

    The admin wants to finish the original search (no more pairs available) so he has "doubled" the credits/WU. This is for CPU only, GPUs will automatically be given the new app.

    If you are wanting credits on AN, and don't care about how many pairs you find, then this is a great opportunity to run up your score

    I'm still (supposedly) focusing on VGTU, but at equal Resource Share, it does seem to have put a nice dent in tracking that project up to 100 Mil.

    If anyone was wondering, AN is 22% faster on Linux. Of course I had everything running on Windows

    Well, if anyone has goals for the 2^64 app you had better get working at it. In just the last 13 hours the "ETA at current speed" has dropped by 3 days, with the expectation of completing the current work by Jul 27th.

    If certain people would get off of it then we mere mortals could reach our goals without a problem. Not mentioning any names .... just sayin'

    Gridcoin just double its output which means the search up to 10^20 will end this year. Not sure what are Sergei next goal will be since next boundary 10^21 will use the following memory:

    CPU version would require ~1400 MB of memory.
    GPU version would require ~3700 MB of GPU memory.

    I say run 10^21 anyway. Plenty of us can handle those memory requirements
