Factorial Equinox Challenge - 22-27 September

Announced is a challenge at FPS (factorial prime search) from 22nd until 27th of September. I suggest we start at 12:00 UTC and end at 12:00 UTC.

The equinoxes are the only times when the solar terminator (the "edge" between night and day) is perpendicular to the equator. As a result, the northern and southern hemispheres are equally illuminated. The Latinate names vernal equinox (spring) and autumnal equinox (fall) are often used.

The equinoxes, along with solstices, are directly related to the seasons of the year. In the northern hemisphere, the autumnal equinox (September) marks the beginning of autumn. In the southern hemisphere, the vernal equinox occurs in September, this year at exactly 22nd Sep 20:02 UTC.

More about factorial prime search can be found here. News and infos about the PRPNet client can be found here.

To take part, you have to activate the following lines in prpclient.ini:

server=FPS:100:1:prpnet.primegrid.com:12002

Remember you also need to run the "install", "update" and "start" batch file for the appropriate number of cores on your PC. Give it a go before the challenge to iron out any problems.

Stats will be available at the well known place here.

All previous PRPNet challenge stats can be found here.

Good luck!
