Ok, thank you!

Thank you for your answer, Nick.

I am guessing colab may be computing in the cloud?


It sure is not computing my tasks, I would have liked to be able to abort them since 2 of them are SoB WUs, which will take 30 days until they are finally sent to other, hopefully active, hosts.

Hi, I recently tried to use boinc on colab but it didn't work out for me for many reasons. The problem is that now I have a some tasks considered to be in progress by the website on computers I can not access anymore.
I would like to abort them from the website since there is no other way, but I can't figure out how to do that.
4) Message boards : General discussion : Screensaver (Message 123982)

Has anyone ever thought of devoloping a screensaver for this project? It would be great, maybe something minimal, it could display the number being tested and a short description of the conjecture/types of numbers of the subproject.

The number being tested is hidden for the user. It is not that it is encrypted or anything, you can see the k and/or n value in a plain text file in some working folder if you want. However, I believe one reason for not showing the number in the client is that we do not want finders of a prime to report it on their own, possibly without the correct credit to PrimeGrid and software developers. /JeppeSN


I had noticed the files containing the n/k values, and I may use them to create a screensaver on my own. Thank you anyways!

It's mostly because we don't want the double checker reporting (accidently or otherwise) it when it's supposed to be the prime finder who reports it.


Ok, thank you for your answers!

6) Message boards : AP26 - AP27 Search : AP27 Statistics question (Message 112673)

Yes. Assuming you've found at least one AP, and been the double checker on at least one AP, you will see two sections, "Found by you" and "Double checked by you".

Although the list includes AP's found in the current AP27 search as well as the original AP26 search we performed several years ago, double checker information is only available for the current AP27 search.


Great, thank you!
7) Message boards : AP26 - AP27 Search : AP27 Statistics question (Message 112671)
Posted 933 days ago by Profile David703
When I go to the page of my account, I can see the statistics about the subprojects, in the section of AP27 there is the button "view detailed statistics". Does the page that turns up when I click there also shows the APs I have double-checked?

Thanks in advance.
8) Message boards : Problems and Help : Subprojects selection (Message 112448)

Those are reasonable selections if your goal is to run short tasks.

Some other things to consider:

* Heat can sometimes be a problem with laptops, although a relatively new laptop like yours probably will run fairly cool. But if you're concerned with heat, run the sieves or AP27 rather than LLR or GFN.

* GFN-15 and SGS find primes, but the primes are too small to be reported to the Top 5000 primes website. If that's important to you, run GFN-16 or PPSE-LLR instead.

* The sieves can never find primes themselves. They assist the prime finding projects by making those projects more efficient. If finding primes is important to you, the sieves won't do that.

* AP27 is different. It doesn't find large primes. It finds progressions of relatively small primes. This can be fun too, and it's relatively easy to find the smaller progressions. This is where you're most likely to find "something".


I'm not intersted in finding Top 5000 primes, i just want to give my small contribution to the project. However, thank you a lot for the reply and the useful informations! :)
9) Message boards : Problems and Help : Subprojects selection (Message 112441)
Posted 939 days ago by Profile David703
Hi there, I'm a new user and I'd like somebody to give me some suggestions about which subprojects I should get WUs from.
I have a normal laptop with a not very fast CPU, a i7-5500U, and my GPU unfortunately does not even work properly. I use it on average 4 or 5 hours a day.
Based on these informations i chose the following subprojects:
-PPS, PPSE and PPS-Mega tests
-SGS tests
-GFN-15 tests
-GCW sieve
I chose these ones because I can complete the WUs pretty quickly so I have not the risk of passing the deadline. Now, should I add other subprojects? Remove some of the ones I have selected? I'm open to advices :)

Thank you for the attention, and sorry for my bad English.
