Well, I have a very immature idea on the existence of PRPNet ad the future of new projects.
These days PRPNet is getting very little love because they require an external terminal, and projects like FPS and PRS are progressing slowly. I think last year someone mentioned that we were double-checking another person's ranges on FPS, and I suppose we'd all like to see a new FPS or PRS prime found by PrimeGrid, right?
Edit:http://www.primegrid.com/forum_thread.php?id=8843 This stated that the prime found by user "suse" in 2013 was already found 2 years earlier in 2011.
In that context, I suggest moving these PRPNet projects to stream's private server, though the GFN description is a bit off-par. This would benefit both users and the project because it will quickly advance the leading edge for PRS and FPS, and of course 27 and 121. Users on BOINC can get credit easier without having to modify a new application pref in a new executable.
Of course there are some roadblockers:
How will the original PRPNet credit be distributed to users on stream's server? This will remain a problem unless there's an automated script, because it's already quite hard to keep track of credit and update them manually.
Second is how removing PRPNet (if that's even possible) will affect PG's servers. Does it serve any internal importance?
Third is that the sieve files would be used up quickly, as Mike stated in the thread linked above.
But all the above is in the condition that PG has completed its current major goals, because this will be a great change, whether these projects are moved to PG or stream's server. The above was my two cents on PRPNet's future, I think the pros outweigh the cons in this situation, but any admins or users are welcome to correct my ideas! :)

My opinion is that they should be folded into PrimeGrid proper.

PrpNet is a testing area for projects which does have (yet) significant attention or of lesser mathematical importance. It's not expected to have high participation for them. (btw a fact that you're not familiar with console and command line does not mean that everybody here is). Eventually, these projects may receive more attention, become Boinc-ready and will be adopted by PrimeGrid. It happened with SR5. Or they may be shut down, like we did with wwww project due to software problems.

My GFN server will be not related to this in any way. It has it's own purpose - a place for relatively small user-suggested projects. LLR2 testing using residues from 27 and 121 was just a my arbitrary choice; I could use any PPS/PPSE data from period of adaptive replication.

Okay, so is it correct to say that they will never be ported to BOINC?
SR5 was a conjecture. The 27121 projects are like 321, except with (not so) random k values. 121 has pushed past DIV's maximum range, and 27 is going to do so in a few years. WW has been planned to re-enter, this time as a BOINC project, if I recall clearly. FPS and PRS are the only ones possible to ever be ported.
(btw a fact that you're not familiar with console and command line does not mean that everybody here is).

FYI, I started learning console because I was doing PRPNet and MSRs last year.

Ah, okay,
So is it right to emphasize user-suggested for a description of your server?
