NFSNET web site gone
 
What has happened to [URL]http://www.nfsnet.org/[/URL]? It has been completely unresponsive for a couple of weeks at least.

On a related note, [URL="http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/%7Etwomack/nfsnet.html"]http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~twomack/nfsnet.html[/URL] was last updated over six months ago. NFSNET has made a bit of progress since then. Or should that be "thousands of bits of progress"? :smile:

Greg has the wiki nearly up-to-date, with the exception of his most
recent report of the factorization on 10,287- (which is post #93 on
the current status thread). Not sure what's happened to nfsnet.org.

PS -- there's also 2,823+ done at about the same time as 2,823-.

In 2011, Google still has a [URL="http://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:zYkLAIvJFasJ:www.nfsnet.org/+nfsnet.org&cd=1&hl=en&ct=clnk&gl=us"]cache of the site[/URL].

Not so in Wikipedia. Someone there apparently decided that the NFSNet Wiki entry was dyslexic and redirected it to NSFNet. [URL="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special_number_field_sieve"]NFS[/URL] [URL="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/General_number_field_sieve"]pages[/URL] still have [URL="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/General_number_field_sieve#References"]references[/URL] to the project, which now are very confusing to a potential reader.

The impression I have is that NFSnet is dead; there are lots of factorisations done by nfs@home but they are being reported at their site. I've removed the wikipedia references.

For all practical purposes, NFSNet has been replaced by nfs@home. For the last year of its activity, Greg and Bruce were contributing most of the sieving and post processing computations. Since Greg seems to be running the nfs@home server successfully, there is no real value that the NFSNet server structure would add to his operation and I have no way to compete with the greater bandwidth and processing capabilities that he has available.

If anyone has a compelling reason to resurrect the NFSNet, please let me know.

Time to retire this sub forum?
 
Seems like NFSNet is dead. Would it be prudent for a moderator/admin to move this entire sub forum to the [url=http://www.mersenneforum.org/forumdisplay.php?f=75]Archived Projects[/url]?
