I added a "1st percentage" column that wasn't there when it first went up.



That's an awesome addition. Thank you very much!

Got a PPSE prime!
Moving to larger projects now. Good luck everyone!

(MT is still worth on small tasks. Got mine 30 seconds after the doublechecker, returned it roughly 1 minute earlier)

If WWWW project(s) is (are) eventually brought to Boinc, I'd love to see a challenge with it.

The GFN-WR Project is now called "Do you feel lucky".


Um... not exactly.

GFN-WR is now called GFN-22, although its internal, immutable name must remain genefer_wr.

DYFL (Do You Feel Lucky?) is an entirely new project. It fulfills the same purpose as GFN-WR used to fulfill, but it's a different project.

GFN-WR as a project name no longer exists.


I stand corrected (I misread Dave's post).

"GFN-WR" is a misnomer now for a few years since GIMPS found the new world's biggest, that's what DYFL is for. The front page shows you predicted world position for each project.

The GFN-WR Project is now called "Do you feel lucky". The largest prime found by GIMPS has 24862048 digits. If we were lucky enough to find a (GFN) prime running tasks from "Do you feel lucky", it would be the largest prime ever found.

Lame answer (someone else will be able to provide a better one):
The higher the number next to GFN, the longer it will take to complete. From a few seconds on GFN 15 to several days (or even weeks) on GFN world record.
The latter name means that if a GFN WR candidate turns out to be prime, it would be the largest prime number ever found.

PPS and GFN have the same purpose: find prime Numbers. They use different software (although both run within Boinc). PPS is currently CPU online while GFN runs on CPU or GPU.
