Anything else new I should be aware ?
Couldn't find anything in the Revised Rules :)



Yes, the instructions for the Admin positions are printed via light watermarked 6 pt. font in Sanskrit around the page edges of the revised rules. Oh, and the print is backwards requiring that you read it in a mirror.


..And, welcome to the team!

Unfortunately, this won't be my best effort. A number of machines are down right now due to room construction/remodeling this summer. The remaining bunch will do a rolling start as I head out of town Wed. for a three day trip and won't be able to start at the challenge beginning.

But at least with 5-days, those machines should all get some work in for challenge credit...

None of the current transforms will run on pre-Fermi hardware. The old (deprecated) version of OCL2 would do so, but it hasn't been available for a very long time now.

And just to give you an idea of the poor speed of an 8400GS, PPS sieve units take about a day each on that card.

Addition: If these calculations are correct, it looks like Primorial and Factorial finds will not be announced given that they will not make it into Top 100?


Not necessarily. "Special" primes do get announcements (e.g., Twins and SG are well below the top 100 and get announcements). A quick look at the front page would suggest that both Primorial and Factorial would be announced officially.

I have found numerous mega primes, an actual SGS prime, a large Fermat divisor, and my favorite prime number is...


2


It is the only even prime number. That is awfully special in my book. :)

...and now back to regularly scheduled prime hunting. :)


Silver-plated underwear!


Ka-ching!


Putting the advanced colors aside, if I'm not mistaken, I count 13 shields, which if I'm also not mistaken (and I could be) is the most (perhaps by twice). Even the notorious tng* has only 6.

Apparently Mr. Scott is an expert at raising shields.


Indeed...and so to keep raising those shields, here is #14. :)




Now, just four more to go for a full set of (active) doubles.



EDIT: Oh, and while I believe that my 14 is the most, it is not double the next cruncher. That honor belongs to Z-san with 10 double badges. I believe that tng* has the third most at 6.
