1) Message boards : Number crunching : Suggestions for 2020 Challenges (Message 134755)
Posted 30 days ago by Profile GellyProject donor
I hope you looked up the meaning of the word "chuffed". It surprised me when I did.


My bad! I will make very clear that when I say "terribly chuffed", I mean I would be extremely pleased to see conjecture challenges be the entire challenge set of 2020. I'm a big fan of conjecture challenges.

Except AP27 (because of Green–Tao theorem) all PrimeGrid projects are conjectures.


There is already a definition in place for "conjecture project" on the site. While most projects are technically working towards some sort of conjecture, they aren't conjecture projects. To muddy the definition is a fruitless task.

I find more value in conjecture projects because they can be finished. There's something very nice about saying that PrimeGrid helped prove a conjecture and now have no need to work on that project. Is it explicitly more or less valuable? Value is in the eye of the cruncher.

200M!

Saw it by coincidence. My first 100M was Oct 14th 2018 according to the forums, so I'm doing ""about"" a year per 100M. Excited to see what the future holds, then.

I think I win with my (1/0), though I suppose I'm beaten by anyone else with n/0 ratio, where n > 1.

I suppose I don't count, though, do I? :D

Let's make 2020 the year of conjectures, all conjecture challenges.


I would be terribly chuffed if this came to be. Bonus points for a WWWW migration to make it a challenge.

Last year I got my first ever prime in TDP on a whim and I haven't achieved any other prime since, so, yeah, I'm guessing February is the best month for primes :D

The question is whether I keep going for PPS to get rid of double bronze or I try to double bronze another GPU project.

Finally netted after so long. Maybe SOB will go so fast that the next badge I get will be the first with non-double check tasks

Lucas-Lehmer-Riesel. A combination of their work in number theory has created a test for prime numbers, as noted in this wikipedia article.

9) Message boards : General discussion : I will match donations up to a TOTAL amount of 50 Euro (Message 121718)

I just donated €25, as well. I guess it's kinda boring to have only two users donate the matching donations, but I needed an excuse to donate more money to PG. Thanks much!
