The most recent estimated end for the Africa Rainfall Project is December 2022, supposing a constant pace like the current one.

This Month in MLC@Home
Notes for Oct 23 2021
A monthly(-ish) summary of news and notes for MLC@Home
It's been a while since the last update! But there's been a lot going on. From DS2 slowly working through its backlog, to backend updates for maintainability that went a little awry, DS4 backend work, and DS3 analysis.
First, two weeks ago we had a mishap with the WU generation, and "continuation" WUs were sent with the wrong parameters leading to computation failures. It took us a few days to fix and clear up, but no data was lost. We've been updating and modernizing our backend scripts to consolidate them and make them less fragile (this is a good thing for maintainability!), and one of our updates went awry. Thank you for your patience while we worked it out. We've had a pretty good track record until now, so I hope you'll continue to support us in the future despite this setback. We're looking for new ways to test these further to avoid similar issues in the future.
The majority of the work over the past few months has been analyzing DS3 data. We've been updating the existing paper with the full DS3 analysis. It is disk, bandwidth, and memory intensive on our backend, and sadly isn't quite as easy to break up into WUs to distribute over BOINC. In fact, just tar/gzip-ing the entrie DS3 dataset (2.6TB) takes over 24 hours, since it's over 4 million small files. We will be making all of DS3 this available as a torrent soon. I've been posting updates on this on our Discord server if you're interested.
Since we've been focesed on DS3 and modernizing our backend/management scripts, DS4 has suffered. I wish I could say that DS4 WUs are flowing but they aren't yet. Everything is in place, we just need to start the tests.
Thanks again for your continued support, and know that while these updates have been coming slower, that doesn't mean work isn't being happening behind the scenes!

An update for the progress on each sub project in yoyo@home:OGR-28is 89% completed (https://stats.distributed.net/projects.php?project_id=28). It will finish around beginning of 2023 (https://stats.distributed.net/project/ogr_status.php?project_id=28). Siever & ECM I see currently no end in further demands for sieving and trial factorizations. There are many many math projects which have needs for sieving and factorizations. M-Queens We are currently in the 2. of 3 parts and have there 70% done. So in total we are at 56%. We started 2 years ago. So it might take another 2 years to finish it. yoyo
