Between the Dog Days of Summer and Calendula challenges I plan on switching most of my computers (all that won't overheat, that is) to PPS and SGS llr. For every prime I find (first finder, not double checker) I will donate 5 euros. Based on my computing power and track record I anticipate finding something like 4-6 primes in a period of just over a month.

Anyway, I thought this would be a way to help the project and have a little fun in the process. Anyone want to join me? A little competition would make it even better...

Cheers!
Alan


Got the first one today:)


Number 2!

PSA credit. :) It's not included in the "official" RAC.


Ah, so that spike in credit was from work done prior to the challenge. How cheeky of us!

On another note, I may have to shut down my computers soon. If not due to the record setting temperatures we're having in Halifax (34C today, feeling like 42C, yuck!), then because of hurricane Earl which seems to have its sights set on Nova Scotia...

Cheers!
Alan

How exactly did our team accrue over 2 million credits in less than two days?? Not complaining, but that doesn't seem possible considering the stat on the primegrid homepage for our team over the last 24 hours has been steady at around 340k since the challenge began...

Cheers!

Ah, I see. Thanks Ken.

I wonder...would the cullen/woodall sieve benefit then since, if I'm not mistaken, the k/n ratio is 1?

Cheers!

I believe I accidentally left out the short switch. Try --riesel.


Pardon my confusion, but does this mean the CUDA ap works, or will work for Riesel Sieve?

Cheers!
