    Re: BOINC Pentathlon 2018

    Day 12 - 16 May 2018

    The 12th day of the Pentathlon is up and running. The computers groan and smoulder. A few make some funny noises. And some of the hardware has given up the ghost. However, our associated crunchers aren’t suffering quite as much but you can tell that the last few days have been taking their toll on them. Some teams look shattered and yet others as if they’ve only just started. It’s not just the fitness that will be the deciding factor in the end but the will to persevere, the will to squeeze maximum performance out of the available hardware. The will to succeed.

    Cross Country
    The deciding phase has begun. The teams are lining up for tomorrow’s last day. Here, there’s not been a preliminary decision regarding any medals. Even SUSA (#1) could go empty handed. SG (#2) are putting the pressure on which they’ve got to do because TC (#3) are pushing even harder. The joker could be CNT (#4). Though the Czechs are losing ground, a massive bunker on the closing day would not be unrealistic. It remains to be seen if it will be substantial enough.

    P3D at #5 are finding it hard to keep up the tempo and are now coming under pressure from [H] (#6) who are showing us their best side at this Pentathlon. As is customary, TAAT have crunched to #7 and are increasing their distance to AF (#8) by the hour. OCN have already collected twice as many points as RKN at #10 which should make it difficult to dislodge them from #9. LTT Forums continue to secure #11 whilst behind them #12 continues to be hard fought over. BOINC@MIXI are still holding on to it but MK (#13) have finally stepped on the gas and thus shaken off 2ch (#14), BOINC@AUSTRALIA (#15), BOINC.Italy (#16) and Crunching@EVGA (#17).

    BOINC@Poland (#18) had to forfeit a place as well as USA (#19). AMD Users aren’t making any effort to get further ahead and so remain at #20 in the table. LITOMYSL (#21) have used the rough terrain to their advantage and managed to get past UK BOINC Team (#22). Almost marching in step are BOINC Confederation (#23) and BOINCstats (#24). Will they have to be apprehensive about Crystal Dream? The Dreamers have won a massive amount of places and thus caught Ukraine (#26) and SETIKAH (#27) red-handed. But so far the distances are minimal and each stumble could make quite a difference. BOINC@Pfalz (#28) and U.S. Army (#29) continue to run neck and neck and must prepare for a new fellow player as Das Kartell (#30) are on the move.

    City Run
    SUSA are slowly but surely expanding their lead. P3D (#2) are trying to limit the damage and can at least keep SG (#3) at a distance. [H] have made a giant leap to #4 and have surprised their rivals which the [H]ardens mainly suspected at the Marathon. It’s quite a controversial strategy which could in the end result in two forth places.

    As a consequence, CNT have fallen back to #5. The deficit is already quite large. The same goes for TC (#6) who are moving along just behind the Czechs. It remains to be seen if both their end spurts can wipe out their arrears. TAAT have slipped down to #7 but at least still ahead of AF (#8). The Francophones should remain vigilant. LITOMYSL (#9) and OCN (#10) are currently engaged in a hot battle which could push both teams further forward.

    BOINC.Italy (#11) and USA (#12) aren’t paying any attention to all these position changes. However, that will soon change. RKN (#13) and MK (#14) have woken up and are moving towards the front. SETIKAH (#15) and Chinese Dream (#16) were the last victims of Meisterkühler and together with Crunching@EVGA (#17), BOINC@AUSTRALIA (#18) and Ukraine (#19) might want to launch a self-help group. AMD Users at #20 have no need of that.

    2ch have just taken up #21 followed by the teams on equal credits of Das Kartell and BOINC@Poland at #22. BOINCstats (#24) were able to benefit from a weak phase of Crystal Dream (#25) but the dream bubble isn’t about to burst just yet.

    Marathon – Quick Update
    The medals had practically been handed out already: SUSA ahead of P3D ahead of [H]. But Bronze at least is threatening to wobble. This is due to TC who continue to catch up and will be in striking distance right until the end. [H] are currently causing a stir at the City Run and could potentially risk their Bronze medal at the Marathon. There aren’t any changes for quite a stretch behind them. It’s only at #16 where there’s been some development. That’s where Chinese Dream pounced and with a hefty interim spurt relegated BOINC.Italy to #17. Even the fight for #19 is beginning to get interesting. 2ch (#19) had to look on as BOINC@MIXI (#20) overtook UK BOINC Team (#21) and have now set their course. At the end of the field, SETIKAH won #28 and so pushed back USA (#29).

    Overall
    Gone are the times when there were big leaps in the Overall Standings. The teams are preparing for the end battles which will bring about a bit more movement.

    SUSA remain in the lead ahead of P3D (#2) and SG (#3). TC (#4), [H] (#5) and CNT (#6) continue to lie in wait and keep their focus on Bronze. And just behind, TAAT have currently managed to stand at #7 in all assessments, quite a feat. However, AF (#8) and OCN (#9) could still spoil their plan. The Top10 continues to be concluded by RKN.

    MK (#11) should keep an eye on BOINC.Italy (#12) and also USA (#13) and BOINC@AUSTRALIA (#14) who remain visible on the radar. Crunching@EVGA are currently beginning to fortify #15 which is made easier as Chinese Dream (#16) had to forfeit some points at the City Run. This is bringing LTT Forums (#17) and AMD Users (#18) closer to the Chinese and gives both new hope. Even though 2ch (#19) and BOINC@Poland (#20) are packed tight, there’s currently not a lot of friction between the two. LITOMYSL (#21) might be able to coax a fire to burn.

    Behind, MIXI (#23) had to let Ukraine (#22) pass just now, though on equal points. SETIKAH continue to defend at #24 ahead of UK BOINC Team (#25), BOINCstats (#26), Das Kartell (#27), Crystal Dream (#28) and BOINC Confederation (#29). The decision of who will cross the finish line at #30 in the end will be decided by U.S. Army and BOINC@Pfalz, whereby the Americans are currently enjoying a slight advantage.

    - When will the teams release the bunkers at the Cross Country?
    - What is still possible at the City Run?
    - What’s to come in the Marathon?

    As you can see, it remains exciting at the BOINC Pentathlon.

    Re: BOINC Pentathlon 2018

    Day 13 - 17 May 2018

    The penultimate day of the 9th Pentathlon is under way and it could be the day of the dragon. However, a bit more about that below. Today is decision day at Cross Country and tomorrow is the day of the Grand Finale. I hope that you are ready?

    Cross Country
    Here is where the decision of the day will take place. SUSA look like the assured victors and it will be difficult to dislodge them from their place in the golden sun. But behind, everything is still possible. Even SG (#2) could still stumble and fall off the podium because an attack from Team China (#3) and CNT (#4) are almost certain in the end phase. However, the Germans won’t just be standing by and do nothing. Once again, in the end, it’ll come down to who has the largest ...

    P3D (#5) are theoretically still within reach of the podium but the graphic power of the other teams appears mightier. But maybe the Green Planet will surprise us with green power. On the other hand it’s not quite clear what [H] (#6) are still planning to achieve. However, we can’t rule out a big surprise from them.

    TAAT continue happily at #7 and must be hoping that AF are equally happy with #8. The defending champion of the Cross Country, OCN, can only be found at #9 at the moment. Don’t they like numbers or is there more to come? Behind, RKN should be fairly secure at #10 as LTT Forums (#11) are already very far away with an equally large margin to the rear.

    In the fight over #12, MK have managed to put distance between BOINC@MIXI (#13), BOINC@AUSTRALIA (#14) and 2ch (#15). However, the margins aren’t large enough to provide a sense of security. This could provide a chance for BOINC.Italy (#17) and Crunching@EVGA (#16). They had to break off for now but a well timed end offensive could turn everything upside down.

    It appears as if BOINC@Poland are currently trying to secure #18, however, USA (#19) are slowly beginning to catch up. A good performance in the last few hours has assured #20 for AMD Users as LITOMYSL (#21) and UK BOINC Team (#22) are noticeably behind and haven’t drawn attention to themselves with sudden activity. The decision of who will be allowed to claim #23 has not yet been taken. BOINCstats (#23) have just set off at a pace but BOINC Confederation (#24) are not to be shaken off lightly.

    Rank 25 is not yet secure for Ukraine as Crystal Dream (#26) and SETIKAH (#27) are just too close. BOINC@Pfalz had risked a brave attack on USA and were thus rewarded with #28. The Americans must be careful that they don’t lose #29 as well because Das Kartell (#30) is running faster than them.

    Marathon
    On this long track, most postions appear to have been secured already. Short spontaneous bursts will not be expected regularly as the margins are considerably larger. However, those who have prepared well in the last few days may find themselves justly rewarded. SUSA continue to lead the field and once again extend their distance to P3D. However, there has been a change behind them. TC have run to #3 and have thus taken the Bronze medal out of the hand of [H]. Will there now follow a counter attack? If not, that would be a bitter blow for [H].

    What else is new? BOINC@AUSTRALIA have run up to rank #13 and thus relegated USA to #14. And at #19 we can now find BOINC@MIXI who have pushed 2ch back again. At the end of the field, BOINC Confederation have reared up and snatched #30 by overtaking BOINC@Pfalz.

    City Run
    SUSA ahead of P3D, the familiar duo at the top. However, behind them, TC have struck once again. With a mighty interim spurt, the Dragons powered past SG (#4) to #3. Can the blue-yellow team retaliate? CNT were a victim of the Dragon but as [H] (#7) have lost momentum, they were able to remain at #5. AF have pushed up to #6 and appear to be profiting from [H] diverting resources to the Marathon. That could mean a chance for TAAT, allowing them to reclaim #7. OCN have succeeded in relegating LITOMYSL to #10 which gives them #9.

    BOINC.Italy (#13) have shown some weakness in the last few hours which their rivals at USA (#11) and RKN (#12) boldly used to their advantage. SETIKAH (#14) are currently not posing a threat to the Italians despite having nabbed MK (#15) and cutting loose from Chinese Dream (#16). Behind, BOINC@AUSTRALIA (#17) are beginning to come closer and will be expected to be passing by. That will most likely no longer be possible for Crunching@EVGA (#18).

    Ukraine secure #19 even though AMD Users (#20) have not yet given up. Meanwhile, BOINC@Poland (#21) and BOINCstats (#22) have overtaken the duo of 2ch (#23) and Das Kartell (#23) who have accomplished the feat of having the same points. There are no changes behind: Crystal Dream (#25) only ahead by a very small margin of BOINC@MIXI (#26) and UK BOINC Team (#27), LTT Forums (#28), BOINC Confederation (#29), U.S. Army (#30), BOINC@Pfalz (#31) and SETI.Bitola (#32).

    Overall
    SUSA are close to Overall Victory and it shouldn’t be possible to take Silver away from P3D. However, there’s still a hard contest for Bronze. TC have pushed onto the Bronze rank with their increased performance at the Marathon and the City Run. It will now be difficult for SG (#4) to recover from this without any help. However, as [H] (#5) had to break off, the Germans can at least be assured of rank 4 at this time. On the other hand, CNT (#6) will already have rank 5 in their sights.

    TAAT hold on to #7 but must keep an eye on AF (#8) and OCN (#9). On the other hand, it shouldn’t still be possible to take #10 away from RKN. Behind, BOINC@AUSTRALIA are continuing with increased pace and now already at #12. Could Meisterkühler (#11) still be a threat to the Australians? We will see. But let’s not forget about USA (#13) and BOINC.Italy (#14). Both are still within striking distance. Behind there are no changes at Crunching@EVGA (#15), Chinese Dream (#16), LTT Forums (#17) and AMD Users (#18). I can only hope that this is the calm before the storm. BOINC@Poland at #19 will be watching without much excitement.

    LITOMYSL (#20) were able to use a small weakness of 2ch (#21) to their advantage whilst Ukraine (#22) managed to detach from BOINC@MIXI (#23) under their own steam. SETIKAH have good chances to retain #24. Trembling behind, UK BOINC Team (#25) must fear an attack from BOINCstats (#26). Das Kartell (#27), Crystal Dream (#28), BOINC Confederation (#29), U.S. Army (#30), BOINC@Pfalz (#31) and SETI.Bitola (#32) are too far away for that.

    - Can SG claim Silver at the Cross Country?
    - Will [H] retaliate at the Marathon?
    - Will TAAT climb back up to #7 at the City Run?

    As you can see, it remains exciting at the BOINC Pentathlon.

    Re: BOINC Pentathlon 2018

    Day 14 - 18 May 2018

    As we look into the faces we see how tired and drawn they are. Once again, the last few metres will demand everything from the competitors. However, they’ve got to persevere as two disciplines are still outstanding.

    Cross Country
    The third Gold this year is going to SUSA who managed to cross the finish line at a comfortable pace. SG secured Silver with a brilliant final spurt and didn’t leave Team China a sliver of a chance. TC thus collected their third individual Bronze medal overall. Congratulations.

    The final spurt of CNT turned out to be a bit meagre so that even #4 was wobbling. However, P3D didn’t pull it off on the home straight and had to contend with #5. [H] went over the finish line at #6 ahead of TAAT who at #7 stayed true to their form. AF (#8), OCN (#9) and RKN (#10) didn’t get scorched in the end.

    LTT Forums finished at #11 in the field which was thus their best individual standing. Although Meisterkühler tried to intervene it didn’t make a difference for them in the end at #12. BOINC@MIXI managed to salvage #13 as BOINC@AUSTRALIA (#14) threatened with excess tempo. The same goes for Crunching@EVGA whose final spurt resulted in #15. In the end, neither 2ch (#16) nor BOINC.Italy (#17) were able to follow such concentrated power.

    For BOINC@Poland rank #18 didn’t get torched because neither USA (#19) nor AMD Users (#20) were in a position to start the fire. In addition, both LITOMYSL (#21) and UK BOINC Team (#22) were able to cross the finish line in a relaxed manner. That’s not something the teams behind could do. On the home straight, BOINC Confederation grabbed #23 and gave BOINCstats (#24) quite a shock. And behind, Ukraine (#25) had a fulminant last day and gave Crystal Dream no chance.

    SETIKAH cross the finish line at #27, followed by BOINC@Pfalz (#28). The expected attack by U.S. Army (#29) did not happen in the end. That allowed even Das Kartell (#30) to move closer. Chinese Dream arrived at #31 and didn’t seem to be getting on too well with GPUs.

    Marathon
    What’s going to happen here in the next few hours? SUSA’s advantage is large and to catch up to them would be a feat compared to climbing Mount Everest. P3D (#2) are currently still trying to make the impossible possible. However, there’s serious danger behind in double measure. TC (#3) and [H] (#4) could potentially shake up the podium with a powerful final sprint and thus cause the Green Planet to quickly wilt.

    SG should be safe at #5 as well as OCN at #6. TAAT (#7) can’t be sure yet that CNT aren’t going to decide to shake off #8 and AF at (#9) aren’t that impossibly far behind. The last team able to push their way into the Top 10 will be decided between MK (#10) and AMD Users (#11). Both are only separated by a whisker. Who knows, even RKN (#12) might still harbour ambitions, it wouldn’t be impossible. On the other hand, #13 seems to constitute maximum outcome for BOINC@AUSTRALIA #13. They’ve so far been able to keep USA behind them at #14 without any great difficulty whereby the Americans are almost completely exhausted standing up. Chinese Dream (#15) could still use that to their advantage.

    Crunching@EVGA were already made to feel the power of the Chinese and currently find themselves at #16 and should at least not let BOINC.Italy (#17) out of sight. It might get tight on the finish line for the Ukraine, currently at #18, as BOINC@MIXI (#19) have powered a little closer. At this time, 2ch have secured #20. Behind are UK BOINC Team (#21), BOINCstats (#22), LTT Forums (#23) and Das Kartell (#24), all keeping together. The Brits have a small advantage, the trio behind don’t leave each other any leeway. The organisers would do well to calibrate the camera for the photo finish.

    LITOMYSL are holding on to #25 and should be safe from Crystal Dream (#26). The Dreamers’ point of departure now looks a bit uncomfortable as BOINC@Poland (#27), SETIKAH (#28) and BOINC Confederation (#29) are all perfectly capable of an attack. This would be possible but not expected from U.S. Army (#30) and BOINC@Pfalz (#31).

    City Run
    It continues to be difficult to work out the standard track at the Pentathlon. SUSA lead and will most likely make the race safe with an expected spurt at the end but what’s happening behind? P3D cannot be assured of Silver as TC (#3) cannot be dismissed and SG (#4) and CNT (#5) have most likely still got their pockets full. AF #6 can enjoy the spectacle from the Rooster’s best vantage point. TAAT (#7) won’t most likely pose a threat and hope that [H] (#8) don’t return.

    It took just one twitch of their muscles for RKN (#9) to whizz past OCN (#10), LITOMYSL (#11) and USA (#12). There appears to be no going back or forth for BOINC.Italy (#13). This gives the Italians a great spot from where to view the action behind them. SETIKAH (#14) have come under pressure from MK (#15) and who knows, maybe even BOINC@AUSTRALIA (#16) can get back into the mix. The kangaroos have just managed to rush past Chinese Dream (#17). Behind then follow Crunching@EVGA (#18), Ukraine (#19) and AMD Users (#20).

    BOINC@Poland are currently at #21 and need to guard against BOINCstats (#22). And even BOINC@MIXI (#23), 2ch (#24), Crystal Dream (#25) and also Das Kartell (#26) will not be giving up quite so easily. The end of the field is led by LTT Forums (#27) who managed to slip past UK BOINC Team (#28). Lying in wait behind are BOINC Confederation (#29). The duo of U.S. Army (#30) and BOINC@Pfalz (#31) are clinging to each other and can see SETI.Bitola (#32) far behind them.

    Overall
    Have all the medals been allocated? At least Gold will certainly go to SUSA. Otherwise the distances seem large but as the City Run could get a bit chaotic, nothing can be dismissed at this stage. P3D will want to defend #2 but TC (#3) might want to put a spoke in their wheel. Even SG (#4) have still got a chance to win Bronze but will need others to help with that. However, CNT should do everything to defend #5 as [H] (#6) could still affect a change of places here.

    TAAT at #7 must continue to keep an eye on AF (#8). On the other hand, OCN (#9) have lost a little ground and must put aside any further ambitions they might have had. RKN will most likely cross the finish line at #10. It’s looking good for MK (#11) but as BOINC@AUSTRALIA (#12) are beginning to excel at the City Run, it could still get pretty tight here. Behind, USA (13) and BOINC.Italy (#14) are only separated by one position which will make a long day for both. Behind are Crunching@EVGA at #15.

    Neck and neck continue Chinese Dreams (#16), LTT Forums (#17) and AMD Users (#18). BOINC@Poland at #19 would be able to push up to their ranks but their previous performance leaves that in doubt. LITOMYSL (#20) have nabbed 2ch (#21) and removed themselves further from Ukraine (#22) and SETIKAH (#23).

    Behind, on equal points, close together and fighting it out are UK BOINC Team (#24) and BOINCstats (#25). It remains to be seen if that continues or if there isn’t a split on the cards soon.

    Das Kartell must fear for #27 as BOINC Confederation (#28) have closed in and are now in overtaking distance. Although Crystal Dream (#29) are trying to contain Confederation, it remains to be seen if they can succeed. U.S. Army (#30), BOINC@Pfalz (#31) and SETI.Bitola (#32) are bringing up the rear of the field.

    What questions are left?
    - Who will claim the medal in the City Run?
    - Can [H] take Bronze in the Marathon?
    - Must SG be content with sheet metal in the Overall Standings?

    As you can see, it remains exciting at the BOINC Pentathlon.

    Re: BOINC Pentathlon 2018

    The End - Part 1

    The deed is done. All participants can give themselves a pat on the back for the 9th time as hardware, body and soul have been taken to their limit and often beyond. Some of you may have redrawn your boundary of endurance. It’s now time to recuperate and to look back at the events of the last few days.

    As is customary, the report will appear in two parts. Part 1 will deal with the outcome of the disciplines whereas part 2 following behind will be concerned with the Overall Standings.

    City Run
    This discipline which takes us over the traditional route ended surprisingly quiet. The great bunker battle failed to materialize which gave us an insight into how exhausted the teams were. SUSA won the City Run and were not even being pressured by any of their rivals. P3D took Silver ahead of Team China. Congratulations to the medal winners.

    Though they tried their hardest, SG remained at #4 but as there was no challenge by CNT (#5), there was thus no danger from behind. AF can also be content with #6 which shows what a great race the Francophones had. Rank #7 did of course go to TAAT who were an example of consistency this year. [H] were left with #8 and at that with a great margin. Had they been prepared to sacrificed this, it might have been enough to reach Bronze at the Marathon.

    With a final spurt, RKN snatched rank 9 and thus relegated OCN to #10. It’s the first time this year that the Overclocker’s position isn’t in single figures. LITOMYSL should be popping the corks, rank 11; it took me a while to find another example of such a good standing at a discipline. In 2014 we find them at 10th place in our history and thus #11 is by a long way the second best achievement of this team at a Pentathlon ever.

    Rank 12 goes to USA ahead of BOINC.Italy (#13). On the final day, Meisterkühler were able to show improvement to claim #14 and thus ditched SETIKAH (#15). For the Koreans this is not a reason to cry as this ranking is this year’s highlight for them. Next over the finish line follow Chinese Dream (#16) and in so doing, they left BOINC@AUSTRALIA (#17) behind them. This year, the City Run constituted Australia’s weak point, on the other hand, last year, rank 17 at the Cross Country was the team’s best individual ranking; there’s going to be a lot of lamenting at the highest level.

    Rank 18 goes to the Ukraine. Here too, the final spurt was the deciding factor. It thus allowed them to run past Crunching@EVGA (#19). AMD Users secured #20. Behind them, BOINC@Poland dragged themselves over the finish line at #21. Just in time as BOINC@MIXI (#22) were advancing at quite a tempo having already steamrollered BOINCstats (#23) and 2ch (#25). Crystal Dream were able to get into the fray and improved their standing to #24.

    Das Kartell (#26), however, preferred peace and quiet, their attack did not happen. Indeed, there was no threat from behind. Although LTT Forums improved onto #27, the margin was already quite pronounced. Thus, UK BOINC Team had to content with #28 but were able to leave BOINC Confederation (#29), US Army (#30), BOINC@Pfalz (#31) and SETI.Bitola (#32) behind them.

    Marathon
    Victory went to SUSA and thus in the 5th Discipline for this year. They made their intentions known on the very first day and as the assembled competitors didn’t dare to rough things up, couldn’t in the end avert the American win. Silver went to P3D who were able to keep Team China off their backs in the end. Congratulations.

    In the end, [H] were left with only #4. It looks as if they felt secure far too soon and invested too many resources in the City Run. This shows us once again why tactics can be so decisive in the Pentathlon. SG had the luxury of trundling along in the last few metres as #5 couldn’t still be taken from them. This also applied perfectly to OCN who crossed the finish line at #6 and in so doing, recorded the best individual result in this year’s Pentathlon.

    TAAT were able to secure #7 in the end as neither CNT (#8) nor AF (#9) had the power to influence that. Behind, the photo finish had to decide the order. MK or AMD Users, that was the question. It was enough for Meisterkühler in the end for #10. Even though AMD Users (#11) didn’t manage the jump into the Top 10 they were able to celebrate their achievement along with MK because it was the best ranking for both this year.
    Not in any danger behind, RKN collected #12 and thereby completed the dozen. Chinese Dreams managed to turn on the heat and BOINC@AUSTRALIA had to sweat it out for a bit. With a final spurt, the Chinese collected #13 and must have given BOINC@AUSTRALIA (#14) quite a surprise at the finish. This end spurt topped off the Chinese in their first Pentathlon and brought them up to #15 in the Overall Standings.

    There was no resistance to this Chinese onslaught by USA (#15) and Crunching@EVGA (#16). Even behind there were no changes to record in the end. BOINC.Italy claimed #17, ahead of Ukraine (#18). Their best result at a CPU-discipline this year showed BOINC@MIXI (#19) ahead of 2ch (#20) and UK BOINC Team (#21).

    That lively fight by the trio at #22 has now been decided. Das Kartell (#22) came out on top, LTT Forums (#23) finished in the middle which left BOINCstats (#24) at the bottom. LITOMYSL (#25) had quite a lot of fun behind, being the silent spectator. The end of the field is led by Crystal Dream (#26) ahead of BOINC@Poland (#27) who didn’t seem to be true fans of the long track. Then follow SETIKAH (#28) who also had their weak point. BOINC Confederation (#29), U.S. Army (#30) and BOINC@Pfalz (#31) conclude the field of teams which started.

    End of Part 1

    Re: BOINC Pentathlon 2018

    The ninth BOINC Pentathlon is over

    After two exciting weeks the ninth BOINC Pentathlon ended on 19 May 2018. 32 teams gave it their all in 5 disciplines.

    A big thank you to the operators of this year's Pentathlon projects, as the competition would not have been possible without their support: NumberFields@home (Marathon), Universe@Home (Swimming), Rosetta@home (Sprint), Asteroids@home (City Run) and PrimeGrid (Cross Country).

    We'd also like to thank all participants and are looking forward to seeing you again at the tenth BOINC Pentathlon starting on 05 May 2019.

    For your convenience there is a feedback page for hints, criticisms, wishes and suggestions to take on board for the next time: https://www.seti-germany.de/boinc_pe...k.php?&lang=en.

    Jeeper is now having a look at this year's Pentathlon results. All figures can be found here: https://www.seti-germany.de/boinc_pe...n.php?&lang=en.

    The End - Part 2


    Before I start with the analysis I would like to thank Modesti and Susanne whole-heartedly. Modesti claims responsibility for the translations into French and Susanne for those into English. The translations contribute substantially to the enjoyment of the Pentathlon by crunchers on a global scale. Many thanks to you both for this work!

    It’s not so easy to categorize this year’s Pentathlon. 5 teams collected medals, last year there were 6. SETI.USA were even more dominant than last year. However, it was never dull. This year, it was plain to see how gripping individual disciplines could be and that the Overall Standings don’t necessarily have to be all that matters.

    32 Teams were at the start, amongst them three newcomers (Chinese Dream, LTT Forums and U.S. Army) who have put up a good show. At the disciplines, NumberFields@home made its debut on the stage. All projects endured throughout valiantly. A big thank you to those responsible for all their support throughout.

    And now for the final analysis of the 9th BOINC Pentathlon. The rankings in brackets correspond to the sequence: Swimming (Universe@Home), Sprint (Rosetta@home), Cross Country (PrimeGrid), City Run (Asteroids@home), Marathon (NumberFields@home).

    Gold Medal


    1. SETI.USA (1-1-1-1-1) – previous year: #1

    There’s nothing left to write about. They cleared the lot. 5 times Gold, you can’t do better than that. The Americans entered the stage as dominant as we’ve never seen a team before and their victory in the overall standings was never really endangered. A strong start showing their competitors where the rubber hits the road and then controlling the situation, that was the successful tactic this year.

    Re: BOINC Pentathlon 2018

    Too bad Jeeper didn't record that no team previously has placed 1st in all five disciplines, even though he did mention on behalf of Planet3DNow, "4 times Silver, no other team has ever managed this." But, maybe some team has won gold in all disciplines before. ???? He did report, "- SETI.USA have now got the most comprehensive collection with 35 Individual Medals, amongst them 15 x Gold"
