Hi guys,
I couldn't find any project i was particularly interested in so i carried on with Prime grid.
I now have 2 computers running almost all day and night ( only pausing to play some games that take up a lot of bandwidth).

the amount of time remaining on this work unit is now down to 40 days.
will just let it run it's course and hope for a massive prime.

i just finished a work unit but then noticed it went further down the list of other work units 6 1/2 days into this and now remaining 5500 days earlier in the day seemed to be stuck at 99.941% and nothing remaining, should i just quit this work unit? or leave it running and see what happens?

In a few days i will reach my goal of 1,000,000 credits, i realise this may not sound a lot to those of you that use lots of computers to farm for primes, but i only have one very old (now) PC.
I've been running PrimeGrid almost every day since i joined in Jan 2007, i will remain a member of the team, but will only run PrimeGrid if other projects have no work units to send out.
In the six and a half years I've been running PrimeGrid my computer has found 7 primes ( as finder ) & 6 ( as Double Checker ). And i feel extremely lucky to have found any.

Thanks
