From the latest stats, it looks to be closer to Sept. than June before PPSE rejoins T5K list.

Yes, looks like my original guestimation was too optimistic.

Honestly, I'm not feeling ready to commit to PPSE till September...not that my effort would make crucial difference but anyway...

With PPSE on LLR2, I decided to push there and started wondering when will PPSE rejoin Top5k.

With current performance (and thanks for LLR2), PPSE is advancing almost 1k in digits every 10 days.
That is esential, because 508400 digits is still shy of current 511k digits trailing edge of T5K.

While there are about 40 PPSE primes in last two weeks (and advancing toward T5K), it also slips away because of other/larger primes being reported.
~10 MEGA + 15 GFN16 primes that are larger than PPSE + a bit more from non-PG primes.
In order for PPSE to reach and STAY in T5K, there need to be more PPSE primes than others.
Also, PPSE needs to advance faster than trailing edge.

If we keep the pace, 2 weeks are 1k digits, which is about 50 places on T5K trailing edge.

GFN-19 challenge will probably postpone this effort but it may happend in early June I guess...

FINALLY poopless after a 4 month wait for a CPU GFN21 on x87:

200,000,001 - nice.

Got a lot of dirty diapers here...need to find a way to live with it.

6) Message boards : General discussion : Possible change for Subproject Status page (Message 154551)
Posted 128 days ago by HonzaProject donor
Well, I saved html code and gave it a try.
I also don't like webpages that scrolls like toilet paper but honestly, even it almost fits on 4K monitor, it is hard to find information.

I think I proposed different layout for subproject status years back.
To have tables for each subproject section like LLR, GFN, Sieve, etc.
Structured, less space needed (single page without scrolling), still quite easy to find information.
It would be more like today's subproject overview on PG homepage.

Think of it like this:
LLR proje Range statis Oldest unfinished work Min remaining Leading edge Workunit/result count in the database 321 link 1123456 564 1234 321156 / 123135 PPS link 2186 8231 1098 123 / 123168 …

Also, if you are running VMware, make sure that you don't have number of cores set as number of sockets - this will hit Win 10 limits.

I believe it will that less than 14 years for PPS close the gap to PPS Mega.
By then, there will be solely GFN16 eligible to T5K...unless we introduce new project.

So, I'm more concerned about PG not having non-MEGA candidates and still T5K primes than T5K with only MEGA...which will eventually happen as well, but later on.

Bottom line - there will always be primes to hunt.

When PPSE drops Top5K, next project is GFN16 to post T5K primes.

The only other non-MEGA is PPS, 954k digits as of now - and closing on PPS Mega as well.

We will have GFN-16 as entry-level primes and then only MEGA in future.
Or new project needs to be introduced...
