1) Message boards : General discussion : What happens to LLR2 if one person is using app_info? (Message 143169)
Posted 15 days ago by numbermaniac
As I understand it, app_info pretty much allows a user to use any program they want to run a task as long as they return a valid result. This can mean, for example, using an older version of LLR instead of the latest version.

What happens to the workflow of LLR2 if someone is using app_info, aka anonymous platform, in an LLR2-enabled project? Normally one person does a full run of the task and then another person double-checks it using the quick method. I can think of 2 scenarios:

1) If the first person is using app_info to run regular LLR, then the special certificate files aren't uploaded, so I guess they can't be used for quick double-checking -- does the second person then have to do a full test or does something else happen instead?

2) If the first person uses LLR2 and generates the certificates, but the second person is running regular LLR using app_info ... will the task simply error for them, or will they just have to do a full test instead?

Hopefully the questions I've asked make sense - thanks in advance. :)

I'll reserve cells B8 and B10 on the spreadsheet.

Ah, I didn't realise it was you, Danny. Looks like the prime has been removed from the website. Thanks for the explanations, Danny and stream. :)

https://primes.utm.edu/primes/page.php?id=131010

This appears to be a newly submitted GFN-13 on the Top 5000 list, and interestingly it's attributed to PrimeGrid in the proof-code. However the prime has entered the list at rank #37680 so it's well outside the top 5000 range.

As I understand it, primes can be submitted if they fit the top 20 of any individual category; this prime is categorised under "Generalized Fermat" but it ranks at position #1585 in that list.

So, why is this prime allowed to be submitted to the Prime Pages? Is there something I'm missing about the conditions for an accepted prime submission?

I'm nearly 1 billion!
My electricity bill is not helping thinking green!


Yep, sadly you can't have it all! lol

I worked out it is approx costing me - $2 AUS per day per computer.
There is a real chance that global warming may push the world into an ice-age and we will need the heat from my computers then? We so do not know what we are doing. I hope very much it turns out OK.


How would global warming cause the world to become frozen?

You need to get AT LEAST 1.6million credit to earn that feat! According to http://www.primegrid.com/top_users.php
only 85 users have reached that and only Scott and tng have accomplished this feat! zunewantan is close behind with only 321SV to go.


I think you mean 1.6 billion. 1.6 million is only enough for a single Amethyst badge.
