Message 4114 - Posted: 29 Sep 2016, 9:32:20 UTC

if i look at the server status i see that the m4_vroln72_4
P1030680 (dictionary set: U534 v1.1 [U534G])
project is allmost done.

when i do the following math the message would be cracked within 18 days right?

remaining 3250681
Results sent last hour 7,740

when i do :
remaining/last_hour/hours_per_day=days-to-go
3250681/7740/24=17.49935........

does this mean the message will be cracked than? Or is this just a step in the good way?

I was wondering the same thing, but then I noticed this thread (http://www.enigmaathome.net/forum_thread.php?id=795) showing overall progress. Looks like 100% completion is expected to be by November 2017, but with every finished WU, the chances of the next one cracking the code increases so it could be at any point. But, the 18 days you mentioned is only one milestone, not the conclusion of the possible WUs.

If we will finish "m4_vroln72_4" with no solution it only means that the message can be crypted with another dictionary. There are three dictionaries. If U534 v1.1 fails, there is chance that naval dictionary aor U534 v1 will work.

November 2017 is time for 100% workunit completion, but there is a chance that we will crack the project earlier.

Lets ramp up production to get "m4_vroln72_4" knocked off the list. :-)

Wow. Looks like the rest of the outstanding units in the current dictionary will be sent out within the next day or so, and at the current rate of being returned, the results returned within a few days after that.

Presuming the code isn't broken with this dictionary, should we expect work units from the next dictionary to be up and running soon, or will there be a break in the project?

Never mind. It looks like the server switched over to another dictionary automatically.
