I can see the wu number etc,... but is there some way that I can know which numbers my laptop is currently working on? (as in, it's currently trying to determine wether or not 49*2^56+1 is prime or not)

The number is not shown until afterward to keep people from trying to cheat.

It's not true, if you are asking about any way,
look at www.primegrid.com folder,
you should find the file named like your wu named,
look inside this file and you'll find what you're looking for.

Sometimes you can more or less guess if a workunit is prime I think. How? Well, a prime always is double checked so if the second unit is sent out only after the first has been received by the server there's a chanve it's prime. Now, if you're desperate for primes you may trawl through peoples pending pages, check if a unit matches the above criteria and then quickly calculate it yourself and submit it to the prime database without actually using PG and screwing over the real initial finder.

By not showing the number on the site this is prevented.

I think :P

Not much of a point in attempting to front-run the top 5000 primes database when SGS primes don't qualify for it anymore. ;-)

Fair point. Didn't keep that in mind, but it holds true for the other projects :)
