Boy, it sure is a quiet mountain this year!


Everybody listen up:

Mattozan has now found two primes during the mountain stage. (Only one is visible as I write this.)

You can draw your own conclusions. :)

P.S. There's also a mega prime today.



Obviously, much like the server, the mountain is broken!

Pftt...I feel the winner of the mountain race will be a mere formality..... almost a foregone conclusion ;)



The mountain stage is a beast of its own. If you look at last year, the polka dot jersey for the mountain stage went to a user who finished outside of the top 4 positions in all 3 jersey races.

It is far from a foregone conclusion!

Uninstalling and doing a full reinstall did the trick. Must be something that hangs when trying to update.

Scott, what Firefox version are you using ?

Can you, please, hit Ctrl+Shift+J (to open the browser console window), clean the messages (trash can icon on the upper left window corner) and then try to install the addon ?

Edit: What webpage are you browsing ?


65.0.1

It was not an install of the add-on. I updated the old version that was already installed.

Was viewing my own computer task pages.

Does not appear to work correctly on mine so far. First Place per page shows, but Total first place does not show up.

I've kept quiet now for as long as I can but I do believe the server has failed again. Please re-oil the gears.


Oh good grief! You should complain more often! :)

It is Not negativity on my Part.
If PG is OK for a computer to download tasks to only fail over and over then OK.
I would think that you would care that a host is using your network bandwidth only to fail and have to be reissued for someone else to run.
State: All 1882 Invalid 1874 and Error 6
100% of what this Host is Downloading is Failing that's all.


Mike or Jim know the details better than I do, but there are some limits in place to prevent such a host from causing problems for things like server bandwidth. Of course, we'd prefer things were working properly for everyone connected to PG, but sometimes that cannot be helped. Even the most diligent of us can have a machine go into error mode (e.g., while off on vacation, etc.) where we cannot correct it for some time.


Sorry you took me as a Negative Member.


Not as a negative member. Was just worried that you were getting frustrated over something that is less of a problem than you might perceive. It can be difficult to read the feelings behind typed text, sorry if I misinterpreted.

How does anything his computer is doing or not doing affect you in any way?


None, so running tasks only to fail 100% of the time is ok with you them.
OK I am moving on now.



Sorry, but I am not sure where the negativity is coming from. Errors on others computers don't really affect other users or challenges in any significant manner.

If your question is about whether this user's error identifies some bug or other issue with the PPS project/program, the answer is no. For example, I ran PPS on my machines for about 3 days and received no errors at all. You should feel safe running any of the PPS projects as there are no current problems with any of them.

Rtx 2070 or Rtx 2080?

Like someone say, titan-same perfomance-half price


I was asking if anyone had a choice between the 2. Not sure how but I apparently now have permission to buy a new card. Looking on line I found that the gigabbyte 2080 was only $699 which is very close to the 2070's I saw. But wasn't sure if this card was any good. It did get a 5 star rating.

https://www.amazon.com/Gigabyte-GeForce-Windforce-DisplayPort-GV-N2080WF3-8GC/dp/B07J5LCQNF/ref=sr_1_6?keywords=gtx+2080&qid=1550088560&s=gateway&sr=8-6


2070 cards can be gotten around $500, so it is a $200 gap. I am not sure that the gap is worth that cash, but the 2080 is definitely faster. It also uses more power so that $200 gap grows over time. I went with the $600 2070 founder's edition, but I needed the rear power connection with a single 8-pin. I think the 2080s are all 8-pin + 6-pin power.

Yves Gallot has only one prime left on the Top 5000, the fifth smallest GFN17, 572186^(2^17) + 1. When it was found, it was the ninth largest prime of any type. /JeppeSN



I suppose that depends on how one views it. As I see it, Yves is the (primary) author of the GFN software, and thus, has a number of Top 5k primes he is responsible for even if not as the finder. :)
