The BOINC Pentathlon is complete, as is our own Planck contest! You can see the results of the Planck contest here and of the Pentathlon here. Congratulations to users Mumps[MM], UofS-Computer-Science, and Bryan, and to team SETI.USA (who also won the Pentathlon)! You guys will be added to the list of thank-yous in our paper.

In the end it was a quite exciting race for the 3rd place user spot, Bryan managed to overtake KaptainBlaZzed with only 45 minutes left in the contest last night! Well done to both of you and many thanks to all of the thousands of users and hundreds of teams that contributed. This was far and away the most computing power I've seen at C@H since I've been managing it, and the workunits you computed will greatly help us improve our work. Stay tuned for a future post about these results.

Nice, good job everyone.

Will the docker app be resumed now that the pentathlon is over?

Hey, cool, I'm on the board.
My team is 133rd, and I'm 1118th but at least I'm there. :)

Yes, I'll add more jobs soon as we finish the batch of Planck jobs sitting in the queue.

It's getting close, 4300 tasks left.

Nice, I see docker WUs now. I'll have to do some once the FB event is over.

When we will see GPU acceleration. I am curios. For example on my laptop i5 3th gen dell a milky way task is done in over 1.5 hours while on my gpu ( sitting my computer 480gtx) the same type of task is done in under 5 min. Please Comment :)

The combination of the camb_boinc2docker application and VirtualBox isn't suited to GPU computation. The camb_boinc2docker has the advantage of one application to run on Windows and Linux using VirtualBox. This project doesn't have a lot of programming 'manpower' and Marius has streamlined as much as he could. The camb_legacy application is being depreciated and really doesn't get much, if any support at this time.

There is a link to the development of the app under Server, Development at the top of the webpage. You can take a look at the source
