Does anyone have a copy of the Published Results (n=333333) file that they could seed? I'd like to help seed it, but haven't been able to get a copy for the past couple of weeks.

Just dropped a note to Rackspace to thank them. Consider doing so yourself; it's the least we can do to acknowledge their generosity.

And keep up the terrific work, Michael and Jim!

Update: as of today, I have managed to obtain both files. I will let my computer seed them for everyone else's benefit, as I believe that to be the nice thing to do. Happy crunching!

Hello all,

I am trying to download the results for the Twin Prime Search found on the "Published results" page, but am having no luck at all finding seeds for the torrents. Being new to BitTorrent, how ought I to proceed?

I have followed the instructions on that page, to no avail. I downloaded and installed BOINC, but the first time I ran the BOINC manager a wizard came up to help me attach to a project. Wishing to set up this computer with my weak key, I dutifully copied the proper "account_www.primegrid.com.xml" file to the data directory, but I was still prompted for a username/password in order to attach to PrimeGrid. Is there something else I need to do in addition to simply copying the account file? Thanks!

I understand that I can modify account_www.primegrid.com.xml to restrict computers' rights with my account, but how do I go about setting this up at BOINC installation? I tried once, but the installer kept prompting me to attach to a project as an existing or new user before it finished installing, and I didn't want to give out my username/password. Thanks!

EDIT: I read somewhere that it works to use the weak account key as the username with a blank password when setting up BOINC. Is this accurate?

Ah. It makes much more sense now. Thank you.

I've been sieving for PSP for several months now, but I've noticed that for that past several days each WU is taking significantly longer than they used to. I have been crunching through them at 18 and 30 minutes per (two computers), but now it's taking 36 and 60 minutes respectively. Any thoughts what could be causing this?

P.S. Both computers are laptops, one running 32-bit Vista and one running 64-bit Linux.

I notice that in the past several days, over 100,000 WUs for the PSP sieve have been checked out, leaving the current total around 46,000. Can we safely assume that there will be sufficient work to do during the challenge?
