Guinea pigs! Best pets ever. Mine used to 'whistle' whenever somebody made a noise in the kitchen begging for food.

Yes, I am getting GFN tasks now. It took a few hours before I didn't get any tasks other than PPSE though, so I guess that explains the confusion.
Thanks for the help :)

Yes my main rig is 330186, I guess I should have mentioned that.
Anyways: Its location is set to 'home' and my home preferences are SR5(LLR), Generalized Fermat Prime Search and for some reason PPS Sieve (which I unchecked).

Hi,

I'm only getting PPSE tasks on my main rig.
After changing location settings and changing the checking of boxes, I'm still only getting PPSE tasks. I used to also get PPS sieve tasks (although not checked), but after disabling GPU computing in BOINC alltogether not anymore.
I would like to take part in the challenge, any clues how to resolve this?

One tiny note: because of the server move, all donations will be handled and entered into the database manually, therefore it may take some time until your donation is processed and appears in the donation page.


I've donated 10€ four weeks ago but am still crown-less :(

The crown has been added!

I hate to nag, but I made a small donation too a few weeks ago and also crown less :(

Give me this beast for only 24 hours :)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tianhe-2

Haha:
Power 17.6 MW (24 MW with cooling)

Just the power consumption would require getting a second mortgage.
I've calculated the costs of running this beast for one day over here would set you back €115,200
But man-oh-man, the performance.

Congratulations!
8) Message boards : General discussion : Is there a pattern to prime numbers? (Message 66219)
Posted 3472 days ago by Profile Herr RoedyProject donor
Well, recently a pattern has been proven:
The gap between 2 prime numbers is never greater than 70 million. Truly remarkable, considering how numbers can get infinitly large.

Btw, if you're into real hardcore research, try using google scholar. You can get acces to a lot of scientific papers and if you're a student you can probably acces the full version of all papers for free.

Numberphile also did a short video on primes/gaps between primes and they mentioned this paper.
Truly amazing how 'just a nameless' mathematician can make such a contribution to science. An inspiration for us all!

Thanks!
I knew the answer was right in my face all along :(
