2019 project goals
 
[QUOTE=masser;476415]I count 59 (announced) top 5000 primes in 2017 in this thread:

[URL]http://mersenneforum.org/showthread.php?t=9782[/URL]

100 top 5000 primes in 2018
50 top 3000 primes in 2018
25 top 1000 primes in 2018
10 top 100 primes in 2018
3 top 50 primes in 2018

Any of those potential goals sound appealing?[/QUOTE]

It was cool to see all of the primes found by CRUS this year. I hope I am a little more lucky next year.

Progress on these goals was a little like Goldilocks and the three bears. TBH, I hadn't closely examined the project's history when I picked the optimistic targets above. More realistic and informed (but still challenging!) goals for 2019 might be:

100 top 3000 primes in 2019
20 top 1000 primes in 2019
5 top 200 primes in 2019

Do we like top-5000-list-based goals?

Sure! Those sound good. I'll come up with a new 2019 goals list comparable to the 2018 list over the next week.

We made a lot of progress in 2018 accomplishing the goals that were set at the beginning of the year. We accomplished 6 out of 8 goals set in the first post and 2 out of 5 goals set in the second post. :smile:

Look for a new thread with 2019 goals shortly.
