I borged a new machine (one that I should have done months ago). It is set to do DCs.

Make sure that the assignments are in the range up to M57 885 161, as the server may already output higher ranges.

I put it to DC, what ever the server will give it. It is proving itself now with Cat 4's. I expect in 3 or 4 weeks it will be in the Cat 2 or 1 range. Since it is a borg, I will not babysit it too much.

Make sure that your account is set to get smallest exponents :)

Projection for showing MP48* is MP48
Based on the previous few months countdown of remaining exponents to DC to 56M to zero today, and the current remaining count for Mp48*, an estimate is computed which yields ~20211007.

And then there is the effect that as the exponents to achieve the milestone gets below say 20, there can be more intense activity than when it was 150 to go.

By using the history of reaching the 56M milestone, I believe most if not all those effects are well allowed for. The last bit might see a little more aggressive approach because of the priority of Mp48* over a minor 1M milestone. That would have the effect of moving the completion date earlier than the projection, and indicates the odds of reaching it this year are excellent. Any slowdown of completion rate due to run time scaling is modest compared to the calendar margin. (57885161/56M)^2.1 ~ 1.072. It is potentially offset by increased interest or additional DC signups or hardware upgrade easily. If it is not offset at all, it amounts to ~7.2% of 3.4 months = about a week later. That still leaves more than 2.5 months margin to complete it this year. Completing 58M this calendar year seems very likely, and 59M a moderate possibility.
But you know what an estimate is. It's a value we use, with caution, even though we know it is wrong. Last fiddled with by kriesel on 20210628 at 02:15

2000 exponents to go until Mp48 is confirmed.
