Darak, I don't believe the "CPU years" comparison is as important as the "number completed" because of the fact that the average DC runs so much faster than the average LL. All we need to consider...

Re: A suggestion for the client/stats server/???

I agree that you idea would be nice, but the server doesn't necessarily know when the test actually starts. It would be possible to have the client notify the server when it starts, provided the...

Nomadicus: the exponents being poached are in the 2 million digit range and thus not eligible for the $100000 prize, so it is not a factor at all. The poaching usually seems to come up whenever we...

They're being poached. Don't be surprised if that last one is done in much less than 18 days, and not by the person to whom it is assigned. Then again, the poacher may leave that one alone as it is...

I didn't bother checking, but I did assume there was some poaching going on when I saw how fast those trailing DCs were dropping off the world test status.

Another thing that is confusing is that (IIRC) when you stop and restart a P-1 test, it will always say "Starting P-1...", and not "Resuming..." like it does for an LL test.

Re: Error 1

Those files come with Prime95, not with any MS product. I don't believe rpcnet.dll is needed any longer but you will need httpnet.dll, which should be in the Prime95 directory.

I believe that is a server-side software situation, which means it probably won't change until we get our own server. I'm sure the clients are reporting the proper version; the problem is not...

cperciva is saying that your number is somewhere between 200390687^200390687 and 200390688^200390688 so therefore cannot be of the form a^a.
