Anyone else having problems getting to For the last few days it has been intermittent. Wait a little bit and I often can get through. I have not looked to see if this "outage" if effecting the client. It has been different times of day both during during peak and off peak times. It is not my bad typing since I am following a bookmark and hitting refresh ultimately gets me here.

What is a rough guess to complete a work unit on a core2 2.4GHz cpu? I have not done 321 and was wondering how long each one takes.

The big 9500 test change was due to all the work from PrimeGrid getting incorporated into the database. All of the 4M-5M work that has been completed was just added in.
The new prime took out about 78000 from the roughly 903640 remaining unteseted values below 50M.

PrimeGrid has made a HUGE impact on this project. Beyond just the 9500 testes that were completed there is all the sieve work that has cut down on LLR tests that are needed. PG has so far removed 86900 factors - more then what removing a prime from the list has done. Each LLR test takes longer then 24 hours to complete. At the higher range that is currently being sieved that is probably closer to 30 hours per test.

With everyones help hopefully we can all find another prime or two this year.


edit: and of course after I go back and reread the previous post I see he mentioned all the tests removed below 50M and not the work submitted in the 5M range.
