Whoah! I decided yesterday to throw in the V8Opteron and the moped Core 2 Duo E6550 again and what comes in today: two more primes. let us see if they count for the tour.
Now i am up to 0.0153 % finding rate and very pleased with myselft.
Seems like i am more of a sprinter and want to win on the ChampsÉlysées.
Good decision, maximum effect, congratulations :)
My "fast" E 6600 found my first (and only) PPS prime after some 2000 WUs, reaching 7906 WUs now, dropping my finding rate down to 0.0126 %. Must do some bodybuilding for the next tour ! :)

No TPS, only PPS from PrimeGrid, not prpnet.
Patently untrue about prpnet if you look at the primes in the top post.
Oops, some kind of misunderstanding. I talked about my only found prime during the tour, which I definitely crunched on PPS with the boinc application.

I think i have done something around 50k WUs and found 5 primes overall of which one was a doublecheck. That amounts to .0100 % but now i am somewhat pleased with my gained result. Seems like i am in the topten when counting prime scores. And who knows? I have switched three of my clients back to ppsSieve and have only three on ppsLLR now, but maybe i find another one until March...
Well, I don't have many resources. One client crunching PPS (C2D E 6600), the other crunching TPS (Pentium 4 D 3 GHz). But soon I'll get an i7, then crunching full throttle, roaaaaaaaaaarrrrrrrrrr>

The Tour de Primes is almost over.
Done 7508 WUs on PPS, found 1 prime =0.0133 %.
Not very successful, but at least I was the first to find it :)

I set maxworkunits=1 by now. But the clients don't send the results, but start calculating the WUs over and over. How can I send the result manually?

I started PRPnet search this morning and received some 40 WUs per core. These were all calculated, but in the meantime my WLAN had dropped connection (it frequently does). So I stopped the clients with ctrlc, fixed my WLAN and started the clients again. They did not send the results and claimed for more WUs, but started to calculate the same WUs again.
What can I do now? I don't want to calculate them all again.
Any ideas?

That's what I like so much about Prime Grid:
whenever there is a problem, it is being resolved very quickly.
Thanks so much, Rytis

Ok, I will stop PSP and compute GCW only, until this issue will be fixed.
Thanks
